look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass. Bottled on 9 October 2009.
Appearance: impressive. Entirely black with no translucence. Poured thick and syrupy with a colossal brown head the consistency of a milkshake. Just fantastic; I'm really looking forward to this.
Smell: strong roasted malt aroma; easily met and possibly even overshadowed by the extreme oakiness of the beverage. Quite good.
Taste: complex and dynamic. Starts off roasty and bitter; I feel like I can taste the hops but cannot really discern specific hop characteristics. It's kind of like a fresh bitterness, with some sweetness as well. Bitterness eases away in favor of the roasted malts, complemented nicely by the oak. Finally, even the malts evaporate leaving me with just the oak and a pretty dry finish. All in all, an interesting and enjoyable drinking experience.
Mouthfeel: immense body and very little carbonation, despite the awe-inspiring head. Texture is silky smooth -- just what I want from an imperial stout.
Drinkability: extremely tasty but definitely a slow sipper.

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.
