This beer gets the "Oh shit!" award from me for our BA tasting the other night. Thanks to Kevin (kmpitz2, our host for the evening) for bringing this one to the table. 22oz. bomber poured into a snifter. It pours a midnight black color with one finger of dark head. There is no lacing. The smell is just an assault of hops. I've had some hoppy imperial stouts, but holy shit! Lots and lots of piney hops under a thin layer of burnt malt. The taste is also super hoppy (definately fine by me!) with just a bit of molasses and a hint of chocolate coming through. Did I mention the hops? Yeah, they dominate this glass. The mouthfeel is very thick, yet smooth. The drinkability is also fairly good for a 9.5% brew. Thanks again to Kev for this, the hoppiest beer of the night. Who'da thunk it would have been an Imperial Stout???

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.
