4.35/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Smooth black, bubbly and thick, two-finger fluffy brown head settles quickly. Glass is coated with a fine bubbly film when swirled around.
S: Roasted hops at first, followed by vibrant dark cocoa, woody, vanilla. I don't detect the alcohol at all.
T: Inception for the taste buds. Complex. Dark fruits in the first level, slight vanilla. Next level is a simple cane-sugar, espresso, chocolate taste. Third level is a hoppy slam followed by a dry finish.
M: Engine oil for my stomach. Thick, full bodied, velvety smooth. Light carbonation. Very sticky. As the beer warms, the alcoholic warmness becomes more pronounced.
O: One of my first imperial stouts and I'm glad I started with this one. The intense flavor and hop presence masks the ABV completely. Reminds me of grand pappy’s shed out back + Starbucks espresso + bonfire on a cold day. Win!

3.31/5 rDev -22.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
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.
