In a 22 oz. Weizen glass. That's right.
Good Thor Almighty in Yon Sky Weilding Mighty Mjölner this brew is to be reckoned with! Each sip conjurs more dreams dancing in my waking sight! A tundra yeti I be! Knuckle dragging and yowling along the spine of the world!
A -- Stay back! Black as Coal! Not a wave of the silly speed drunken light waves dare enter! What wonderfull head! The color of supple brown areola! Thick sticky lace mires the sides of the glass.
S -- interesting...not unlike the taste of the brew itself except an additonal floral hop characteristic can be percieved.
T -- Syrupy malt goodness, sweet chocolate, fresh peat, hop briskness, and after an exhale through the nose you finally notice that this is an alcoholic drink! I did sort of notice the oak/vanilla character throughout the entire profile. I'm at a loss to percieve the complex landscape this brew has shown me. I need more time on the trail!
M -- This brew takes your silly punk ass by the hand and leads you, the blushing maiden, with it's unfettered might into a castle thick with 4 glucose chains of dextrins all shoved together in monumental piles of mouth feel. You cannot be rid of their effect until you are done.
D -- Put down your hashpipe! High Grav Russian Imperial Stout of the 9.5% ABV persuasion fails the drinkability test miserably unless it leaves you stumbling to the corner to collapse in sporadic convulvions after two 22 oz pours from your growler. Suggest revival with a High IBU IPA. Snoqualmie's Wildcat IPA will do nicely.

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.
