look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle with a bottled on date of 7/14/14; into a snifter.
Appearance - pours thick and black and sits in the glass like the dark side of the moon! A chocolate ice cream brown head starts off thick, but quickly dissipates to a thin layer. Lacing is sticky and plentiful!
Smell - creamy dark and milk chocolate, blended with robust coffee and mocha!
Taste - very bold coffee flavors with an excellent touch of dark chocolate!
Feel - heavy, but the 9.5% ABV is hard to detect; excellent balance between roasted malt characters and bitterness from the hops that make this complex brew feel like a gourmet coffee!
Overall - I am revisiting this after a year or more, and as my palate has matured, my appreciation for the original Yeti is growing!

Served out of a three month old 12oz bottle into a snifter.

A- Dark, intimidating, imperial stout. Little to no light getting through. Super dark brown, if not black. A fairly aggressive pour produced a half-inch khaki head, which slowly dissipated into a nice lacing.

S- Coffee, chocolates, roasted malts. Noticeable aroma when diving in for a taste. Has my nasal hairs dancing.

T- A toffee flavored, smooth front-end, with a sharp, coffee-like bitterness on the back-end. Coats the whole mouth and the taste lingers until your next sip. Delicious.

M- Great mouthfeel for this beer. A little thickness compliments the taste, adds depth and shows how full bodied this beer is. Exactly what you would expect from a 9.5%er...

O- Definitely a widely available go-to imperial stout. Love the Great Divide bottle as well. Suggests food pairings, lists the IBUs, has a clear bottling date, nice texture, and a spot on description of what you're getting yourself into. Gave this beer 4.5's all around to express how well balanced it is. Won't guarantee this will be your favorite imp. stout ever, but I can say you will not be disappointed.
