Yeti on tap is amazing; thick and rich it coats the mouth tongue and palate.
Tan head is so thick it is almost like meringue; head stays for an hour as I let the cold stout warm for different tasting profiles. Black as night; thick as marine fog. Completely opaque: so black it was almost blue. Carbonation was nicely tingly: the bubbles formed light foam in the beer, on the glass.
Hoppy nose; shockingly hoppy for a big stout. Finishes dry, with pine and citrus asserting itself both in the finish and more apparently as the stout warms. Chocolate and coffee balance in the nose with coffee winning out in the taste. Dried fig and dates in the unfolding flavor, hints of dry black cherry. Toffee and caramel. Complex and layered. High praise especially from me as stouts are not my favorite style.
Enjoyed at the Black Dog in Urbana, IL: a great place for BBQ and beer. See my Beerfly review.
