look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

2011 edition on tap at Mad Mex

Appearance: Solid black with a half finger dark brown head. Yetis are amongst my favorite looking beers

Smell: Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel, oak, dark fruit. So complex!

Taste: Huge roasted and chocolate malt bill, coffee, vanilla, molasses with just enough oak/smoky character towards the end of the palate. Often times there's a particular characteristic of a beer that stounds out, but here each one is bold yet they balance eachother out perfectly

Mouthfeel: Between heavy medium and light heavy body; Smooth as silk with slight bitterness throughout. No alcohol detected whatsoever

Overall: I don't know if it's because this was both aged for three years and on tap, but I was amazed. This beer is instantly my favorite stout to date and a contender for the best beer I've had. Looks picture perfect, awesome balance with both flavors and aromas, and smooth as silk. Much better than the chocolate oak aged yeti, and my favorite in the series so far. I've always said that the perfect beer has big, bold American flavors and viscosity with English balance and smoothness, which i think I found here. HIGHLY recommended!!

Serving type: on-tap
