From a 650 ml bottle (bottled January 17, 2013) into a globe.
A-This is what an imperial stout should look like: A normal pour produces about one and one-half fingers of dense, dark-brown head. The foam has good retention and leaves a blanket of lacing on the glass. The brew is opaque and nearly black.
S-The aroma is big and rich with roast coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, some dark boozy fruits (like prune), and a substantial (for a stout) amount of hoppy bitterness. Pretty intense.
T-The taste is also pretty intense with a slightly sharp hop bitterness on the start and finish. The hops surround a core of coffee, caramel, boozy vanilla, light charcoal, and dark fruits. The finish is long and slightly bitter.
M-The feel is medium to full body with a nicely balanced carbonation. Although this is a big and heavy brew, it sips well.
O-This is another great Yeti. I don't think I like this Yeti as much as the Oaked version, but I slot this ahead of the Espresso version. For me, the hop presence in this Yeti adds balance, if a little bit of bitterness, to a nice malt profile. Extra points here for style as this is a great looking beer. I enjoyed drinking this on a cold (it is 13 friggin degrees outside) April night and will certainly drink this brew again.
