A - Super black pour with dark brown head. Foam doesn't overwhelm or last long.

S - Hops at first with a bit of malt and chocolate finish.

T - Hops, malt, and chocolate dominate. Don't really notice much of a caramel flavor, but did taste a little toffee notes. Slightly over bitter aftertaste keeps the score down a bit for me.

M - Thick and creamy.

O - Not sure I've had many Russian Imperial Stouts, but it did remind me of some American Imperial Stouts. Yeti is a classic for a reason. Good beer from a good brewery. Certainly a beer that should be on your list to try.

Pours a jet black with nice full thick tan head that lingers and clings quite a bit to the sides of the snifter sides. Smells of roast, caramel and toffee. Earthy hop aroma with wades of cocoa. Starts off sweet with waves of chocolate, roast, some vanilla, and some light oak like flavors. Feels luscious with creamy feel and ample bitterness. One of my favorite brews. I love the other Yeti brews to a T. This one is great. Just seems a little substandard compared with the the specialty Yeti beers.
