A - Small dark brown head with specks of lacing on the sides. Very dark beer. Visibly viscous.
S - Molasses, chocolate, roasted pine nuts, freshly chopped oak and vanilla.
T - Oak, chocolate, dates, raisins and there might be a hint of diacetyl, but I think it is just more of the oak flavor. Aftertaste is a dark chocolate bitterness. The monsterous abv is wholly undetectable.
M - Thick, chewy, smooth and really refreshing. Saying this is chewy is an understatement - I practically had to bite mouthfuls of this out of the glass. Simply awesome.
D - Impressive. A big stout with tons of flavor, not of hint of cloyingness, and a great mouthfeel. Definitely a dessert beer though. A real winner from Great Divide. I will buy the non-oak aged version on my next big beer trip. Maybe then buy whichever I prefer to age. Fantastic beer.

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.
