4/5  rDev -5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poored from 12 oz bottle in to standard pint glass. Looks good solid black small tan head. Smells like cold been in the fridge for a day coffee with slight vanilla creeping in. Taste is a little more of the same but with more chockolate and spicy hops. Feel is smooth and I mean smooth verry nice. Drinkability suffered slightly do to the wrong style to drink on a warm day, it would be higher if it were cold and snowy that is when this beer would shine I am sure.

3.78/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 ounce bottle poured into a large snifter.

A: Dark, black coffee, espresso-crema colored head, good lacing on the sides of the glass.

S: Alcohol, chocolate, prunes, brown sugar.

T: Bitter-sweet...some chocolate across the tongue, the alcohol is coming through a bit heavy here...not overpowering, but perhaps a bit too much.

Overall: This is good. The "bottled on" date reads Mach 9, 2009...so this is pretty young yet. It was a bottle of this from early in 2008 (which I recently drank) that turned me on to this beer. That one was wonderful, complex, full of vanilla, chocolate, and wood notes...I'm hoping that, with a year on this on, it will do the same.

4.1/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a gushing 3-finger brown head that died medium-paced on top of a black body. An interesting smell of grape and other fruits (berries, citric) mixed with some roasted and coffee malts (hints of cocoa, toffee, molasses). Smooth, creamy, full-bodied and slightly bready, this beer passes over the tongue easily with a balance of roasted and coffee malts that have a drying sensation and also residual sticky sweetness from cocoa, caramel and something akin to molasses/maple syrup. The dryness is helped by a good ol' helping of hop bitterness on the backend, although the hops don't really have much of their own taste; they are overpowered. A good sippin' stout to have after a meal.

Poured Black as night, with brown small head. Smell is pretty sweet and chocolate, smell the hops, coffee. Taste is the same, sweet, bitter chocolate, coffee [espresso], and a hops at the end to balance it all out. mouthfeel is nice and smooth and creamy.

Overall this is much better than I remembered when I had it on tap. This is near the top of my list now for RIS, right there with Old Raspy - they have different flavor profiles but are equally good. This is a good one to switch between with Rasputin. nice.
Would love to try with some age on it.

bottled on christmas eve, 2008. Blacker than coal... really, really dark with a caramel colored head that pours thick and sticks around forever. lacing up and down the insides of the glass. in the nose, first thing that hits is the booze. there are some hints of dark fruit and cocoa. some tobacco in there too. taste is booze and hot in the beginning, then comes bitter espresso, then even more bitterness as the hops close out the taste. mouthfeel is damn perfection in the glass. chewey, creamy, viscous. it's thick like motor oil. this beer needs a bit of aging and it would be absolutely amazing.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: this thing is beyond black. One of the murkiest and muddiest stouts I have ever seen. The pour was thick black with clouded bourbon-like edges. The head was almost as dark as the body. Lacing was finely spread around the glass with small speckles.
All jokes aside, this thing is Mr. Blackness...5 points!

S: dang, the nose borders some of the darkest whiffs around. Lets see: fudge, bitter chocolates, molasses, light amounts of coffee and not so light whiffs of alcohol. Some of my whiffs come across rather clean

T: well, where do I start. I taste fudge brownies swirled with molasses and/or caramel, sprinkled with shavings of bitter bakers chocolate, some coarsely crushed kona beans, and a (surprisingly strong) wallop of crusty green hops. The malts and hops battle on the tongue in a good clean manner, wild stuff
I have to set this down for a second and gather what I am drinking. Great stuff and a lot going on
However, alcohol is not wearing a mask and sometimes the overall flavors seem interestingly burnt in character

M: body is as close to a beer syrup as possible and very smooth. This beer has a soothing quality. Amongst such dark flavors how do the hops hang on the tongue so nicely, great stuff

D: absolutely a unique beer. As far as Imperial stouts go it charts some new territories with such a huge hop presence. Lest we not forget the burly malt flavors and the snooping amount of alcohol

first review on here, and a great beer for it.

poured from bottle into pint glass

A: pours a deep black. hints of a dark reddish brown at the very edges of the glass when held up to a light. a dense, coffee & cream colored head that reduces to a ring in fair time. sticks around for the whole brew leaving tight sticky lacing the whole way through

S: chocolate and espresso are prominent with hints of toasted malt and molasses

T: wow. true to the nose, with chocolate and coffee coming out quickly. didn't catch the hoppiness at the end. that some reviews mention

M: not too carbonated. feels quite smooth and somehow sticky.

D: i could easily go for a second after finishing the first

12oz. bottle acquired in a recent trade with nflmvp. Thanks Steve!

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A slow-forming, foamy, light brown head emerges from a muddy brown-black body. Glimmers of red can be seen at the outermost edges. Head dies to a thin, sticky crown after a few minutes, but is easily reignited with a moderate swirl. Gorgeous Spanish moss-like lacing all the way down.

Smell: Rich cream and dark chocolate mousse stand out the most. Molasses and sharp dark fruits (namely figs) bring about some mild nostril flarage. Struggling to get much else.

Taste: Starts out smooth, malty, and chocolaty; then shifts to sharp fruity esters, molasses, and hops. Maybe some sour cherries in there as well - yep, definitely sour cherries. Smokey roasted malt makes an appearance in the aftertaste along with bitter, oily hops. Nicely balanced and damn good.

MouthfeeL: Thick, creamy (excellent job with the carbonation), sugary, and even prickly. Coats the mouth with a thick, flavorful, resin. Belly-warming and edge-dulling. Nummers.

Drinkability: A very nicely done RIS. I think I may even like it better than the oak-aged version. If it were available in my area, Yeti would be a staple in the fridge. This one didn't knock my socks off, but it was definitely solid. I could drink this anytime.

Appears a very dark black with mocha colored head that is very thin and takes a vigorous pour to even arouse.

The smell is great with dark malts and dark fruit notes and still has a hoppy background

Taste is great too very different and complex. Dark chocolates and coffee with fruit and a nice hoppy bitterness in the end not found in most imperials.

Mouthfeel is nice and smooth but still get the hoppy crispness not really what i am looking for in a stout but different and nice at the same time.

Hard to put to many away kinda sits heavy and has a high abv but still a very nice beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Served from a bomber into a pint glass...

A: Deep opaque black color in glass with nice thick, very creamy looking medium tan head. Just from this first impression, looks delicious. Good head retention as well, and produces good lacing.

S: The main aroma that I noticed was chocolate, and while I couldn't specifically name the others present, there's certainly a lot there.

T: Many flavors buried within...vanilla, chocolate, oaky in both initial taste and aftertaste as well as a warming alcohol flavor that comes through in the aftertaste. No sip was the same, as different flavors played around on my tastebuds at different times.

M: Great mouthfeel...just what I'm looking for in a stout. It has a nice full body, very balanced taste, and is just carbonated enough so that it's not like cough syrup. Fades slowly after each sip and doesn't stick to your tastebuds that much.

D: Such an easy beer to drink, but full of flavor...supremely enjoyable! This may become my new stand-by for a great, high-quality stout when I feel like picking up a bomber at the store.

A- Opaque black with about a half inch of milk-chocolate head. Laces ok.

S- A little alcohol, some apple, but mainly dark roasted malt and light citrus hops. Smell isn't super strong, but it's definitely good.

T- Interesting. Not as hoppy as some others are saying. Complex roasted malts of chocolate and coffee. Some citrus hop undertone. Kind of fruity too... light on the cherry side of things, some lighter pear/pineapple/apple notes too (hops?). Slight woody aftertaste. I keep getting more things out of this one. Becomes hoppier as it warms--somewhat piney and bitter. That's nice. Complex too.

M- Big and creamy. Oily. Love it.

D- Surprisingly drinkable for the ABV, style, and mouthfeel. Delicious beer and one that I would definitely have again. IMO, this definitely competes with Old Rasputin and FBS.

355ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black. Brown head with lots of lace that sticks like glue to the glass. Aroma is intensely hoppy with some chocolate underneath it. Flavor has lots of hops, grapefruit, licorice. There is some roasted malt down there, but the hops almost completely trample it. The body is thick with low carbonation, and an astringent finish. Overall just really bitter and hoppy, not really going for balance I guess. I can live with that, but it doesn't blow me aw

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Poured a viscose pitch coal in the glass with a monsterous 3 finger plus creamy, cinnamon sugar colored head that displayed an extraordinary retention while leaving splotchy, broken concentric circles all the down for a lacing. A very nice coloring and head retention as well lacing gives this a very brooding appearance worthy of its name.

S: a fresh, roasty nature with deep chocolate, with a citrusy-pine hopping that truly dominated the senses. A beautiful dark roasty maltiness, with dried kindling, and a milky chocolate sweetness compliments and adds highlights to the helping dose of hoppiness blending well to provide a rich, smooth experience.

T: The flavor was as roasty as the nose led you to believe, with a milky creamer sweetness. Bitter citrus, strong freshly roasted coffee beans smoothers the tongue while a light lingering burnt woodiness adds campfire minerality to the mix. The hopping was bitter and earthy, with dried pine, while a roasted lacing and chalkiness closes things out. Overall the flavor was rich and robust and very bitter. Some may say this was a little over hopped per style distracting from the usual dark maltiness per style, but I thought this was refreshing, unique, and the hops complimented the dark brooding malting adding only layers of complexity making this an very good, and thus unusual drink per style that pushes the envelope.

M: creamy and full bodied, very softly accented with little carbonation which adds to the fullness and smoothness. The finish finds a bitter and chalky ending with a warming alcohol presence.

D: A very robust, hearty, and bitter imperial stout with an unusual west coast hopping that actually works really well here. Lives up to its billing and name starting strong, and finishes even stronger. A bomber is enough to fill one up and is like a meal in every bottle, sure to satisfy malt and hop wise making this a sure repeater in the future and great standard to measure up to.

22oz bomber poured into a snifter.

5.0 A: Thick motor oil like black. Increadible dark brown head that refuses to back down and leaves good lacing.

4.5 S: Roasty, toasty and everything nice. Caramel, sweet chocolate, molasses. Everything you'd expect from a dark ass beer like this one, though everything is really pronounced.

4.5 T: Oak comes through finally. Bittersweet chocolate, toasty roasty malts. This is almost like ST Choklat only much much less cloying. Might be the best RIS I've had. Bit of an alcoholic tinge at the finish. Lastly, there's a healthy amount of bitterness and some grassy hop flavor.

4.0 M: Good carbonation and good overall, but could be creamier.

4.5 D: This is basically the same review as the one for the oaked version. Only difference is the lack of oak flavor, which is to be expected.

On the pour, this was a clear, dark brown beer with a very thin layer of head. Sampled at Julio's, so it was only a 4 ounce sample, not a lot of room for pouring a big head.

Aroma was mostly dark, roasted malts. Some dark bread crusts, faint-but-not-quite whispers of coffee.

Taste was all about roast. Roasted dark malts, with a long finish. No coffee on the tongue with this one.

Mouthfeel was smooth, rich and full. Very good.

Drinkability... where the hell was the alcohol? Deceptively hidden, to be sure. A great drinking beer. but keep watch of how much you consume.

Pours thick and opaque black, like opening a can of oil. Smell is full of rich coffee with some vanilla extract and smokey wood. Full-bodied and heavy in the mouth throughout the tasting. Roasted caramel malt flavor is present up front along with flavors of baking chocolate followed by a little smoke and bitter grapefruity hops, leaving a rather dry finish. The high alcohol level is very well hidden. Drinkability is fair, I would be good after probably two. Good stuff.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 24oz brown pop-top with typical GD-style label

Appearance: PITCH black beer with a dark mocha cap with decent retention; this is utterly opaque

Smell: Sweet, super dark grainy huskiness with just a touch of earthy hops.

Taste: Beautiful dark burnt roasted malt, mild caramel, and a nice bit of citrus hops in the background; this has a nice, pleasantly sharp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-heavy bodied

Drinkability: Kind of scarily high

Conclusion: This is a great beer, much better (IMHO) than their Oak Aged Yeti (I truly hated that beer)...this is wonderfully balanced, but packs a punch as well.

Oh man this may be a new favorite beer, if it wasn't so expensive I'd drink a bomber every day! This is soo good. I never really liked imp stouts but this has opened my eyes.

A- Pitch black, no light shines though. Big head for a beer like this, the head is pretty fluffy too. Nice retention and beautiful lacing.

S- Smells much more like hops than normal Imp stouts. Faint alcohol, lots of roasted malts and coffee. As it warms it just gets so much better too.

T- Sweet caramel hits the mouth to begin. Moves to roasted dark malt, then coffee. Finally a faint hint of chocolate. The hop bitter comes as the beer slides down the throat. It's amazing.

M- Slick but not syrup. Nice dry finish, no alcohol burn.

D- Very drinkable huge beer. Hardly notice the 9.5 abv. And like I said to begin with, the beer is so good. I highly recommend everyone seeks this out.

Picked this up a month or two back because I heard so many good things about this. Usually, if you've had one beer of a style, you've pretty much had them all but in this instance, that is certainly not the case! This is a strong RIS, make no mistake, but it's pretty smooth and as many, many other reviewers have said on here, this is the "chewiest" beer of it's kind out there. How is it possible that a beer can be thick and go down easily? I guess that's the mystery behnid the Yeti!

All kidding aside, this had a nice pour to it. It looked like dark milk chocolate with enough head to nearly overflow out of my pint glass and somewhat decent lacing to go with it. The taste...very hard to describe. Roasted notes, toffee, chocolate, with a lot of caramel, peat moss, and burnt notes in the back. There's a lot of depth to this and quite a kick of alcohol in the mouthfeel but nothing ever feels overwhelming. Somehow, everything works well together here and unlike most stouts, I can see myself drinking this during this time of the year.

I think I'm used to RIS's having that dark "motor-oil"-like attribute to them and resembling fermented dark chocolate. That's not the case here. Yes, this has a lot of alcohol and it's bold but a beer with 9.50% ABV isn't bad when there are lots of flavors and a solid backbone to tie them together. Not the best beer I've had but one that certainly lived up to the hype and well worth going out of the way for.

22oz bomber at cellar temp poured into pint glass. pours completely opaque black with a wonderful mocha colored extremely creamy head. very delicious looking head. great head retention. amazing sticky lace that seems to nearly cover the whole inside of the glass. beautiful appearence.

in the aroma you can tell this is definately a RIS. solvent like alcohol with roasted malts, dark dark chocolate, maybe some anise, toffee, and a small hop aroma is present.

big complex flavors. roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, anise, lots of citrus hops, finishs with big alcohol with a sweet hop bitterness, from the malts.

big heavy body. chewy, meaty mouthfeel, almost sticky. about as drinkable as any big RIS. i enjoyed this one very much and look forward to trying some of the other versions of this. not for the beginer beer drinker, but if stout are your thing, a must have.

22 ounce bottle purchased at Central Market in Fort Worth, TX. Poured into a snifter. Bottled on date is a little blurry, but it appears to be 12/2/08. Comes in at 9.5%. The bottle I drank has the new artwork.

A-Pours black with a one and a half finger sandy head that goes fiarly quickly to a bubbly half finger head.

S-Sweet caramel malts hit first. Minor hop notes are detectable. There is also some roasted malt coming through. As it warms vanilla comes out. The smell is not overly powerful but as all the different notes hit my nose, you know this one is going to be big.

T-A blast of citrus hops and roast malt assault my palate at once. You would never guess how hoppy this is based on the nose. The citrus hops keep coming and are followed by some caramel sweetness and a nice level of bitterness. Dark chocolate can be tasted all through the back of my mouth. The vanilla notes come through as it warms.

M-Medium to full bodied. It is very rich and creamy. Not surprisingly it is thicker when cooler and lighter as it warms.

D-A great sipper. The 9.5% is well hidden and the citrus hops make this a great one to drink.

One of my favorites to pick up when visiting Texas. Love all of the citrus hops. Makes me want to go down into the cellar and crack open the oak aged Yeti.

She pours the muddiest dirtiest grittiest (screw commas) color I've seen. The head is a chocolate milkshake of delight that leaves some lacy catacombs everywhere it looks. The retention is excellent. Perfect.

The smell and taste will group together with this beer, as they really intertwine to create something better than the lone ingredients. Starts bitter and toffee-like, to be rounded out by some caramelly smoothness, very nice. There is some definite hop bitterness to balance everything out.

The mouthfeel is nice, per style it is huge and creamy, excellent silky smoothness.

For an imperial stout, I could drink this all day long...very impressive. I cannot believe how well this beer melds together, it has restored my interest in the style.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into a snifter.

Appearance: Seems to be black (although it may just be an exceedingly dark brown), opaque, cappuccino head that subsides but leaves lacing. Can easily recreate a small head with a quick swirl.

Smell: Chocolate, dark fruit, sweet caramel, some roasted malts, a trace of alcohol.

Taste: Sweet chocolate, burnt malts, some coffee, a lot more bitter than the smell indicated (but not as bitter as Storm King).

Feel: Warming, thick and chewy. It doesn't get any smoother.

Drinkability: About as drinkable as a Russian Imperial Stout can be. I could keep sipping this until I die.

I need to try the Oak Aged Yeti now!
