look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a nitro tap at 45F. Enjoyed in a snifter glass.
-The color is an extremely dark brown or even black. Tints of maroon reflect when held to a light. The head is a thick medium brown. It resides slowly to a thin silky cover.
-The wood is noticeabley present in the sent. This is surrounded by ripe fruits, cocoa, coffee, molasses and vanilla.
- It has a thick body that passes smoothly over the palate. Bit thin in the finish. Much hoppier than I would expect from the appearance and smell. The hops mix well though with oaky fruits and roasted malts and coffee. Alcohol present, but well hidden for a 10% behemouth. Becomes delightfully sweet as it nears higher temperatures.
-Overall, one of the top imperial stouts available. Goes well with high quality red meats or as an after dinner desert.
Serving type: nitro-tap

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.
