This was my first Imperial Stout sampling at Kickbacks in Jacksonville, FL. I wanted to start off the meal at Kickbacks right, with a good strong beer that would go well with my meaty selection of a blue cheese stuffed cheeseburger, and oh man this one slaughtered it. I'm generally a fan of Great Divide's beers, so it was a natural choice to try one i've never had before in such a great gastropub.
A: Coffee, black in color. A nice two finger creamy foam head formed at the top. Great lacing, very slow dissipation.
S: Oaky, rich dark scents of coffe and postum.
T: Decadently rich and hoppy. Plenty of bitterness to pair with heavy foods.
M: Hoppy and bitter lingering on the pallete. Otherwise well balanced.
D: A sipper, pairs well with meats. Micro carbonation makes it go down rich and smooth. Masks it's alcohol well. If stouts are your thing, you'll enjoy it.
Serving type: on-tap

Look- opaque black, thick poor, thin dark tan head
Smell- hints of milk chocolate almost reminiscent of pudding, oak, coffee, molasses, nutty plum. Some cooked cabbage as well, unfortunately.
Taste- charred oak, bittersweet chocolate, earthy hops, semi-sweet malt in the middle followed by bitter dry finish with notes of cabbage. Alcohol is well hidden.
Feel- medium full, slightly sticky, medium carbonation
Overall- Despite the obvious infection, the aroma and appearance were quite inviting. Flavor was disappointing to me and I'm sure the infection played a role but I'm just not fond of the balance of roasted malt in Yeti.
