look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a bottle with a bottled on date of Sept 2012 , pours a rich deep chocolate color with a thick brown head that retains its body well and lacing that sticks to the side of the glass , a very nice looking beer in the glass

The aroma is just great , I pick up the malt and the alcohol very well with hints of vanilla and almost a creamy smell to it , kind of sweet but enough bite from the alcohol to not be too much

The body of this beer is almost too week to be such a big beer , I was expecting a hearty thick taste and it was almost a little too weak for this beer , not that it was bad just not what I was thinking

The flavors this beer puts out are very nice malty sweetness , you can taste the bitter overtones of the dark malts used in this brew , the oak flavor comes in and really finishes this beer off nicely

Over all I'm not a huge stout fan , I mean I like them ok , but not a huge fan , I loved this one. I mean I thought I loved FBS until I drank this , now I know I liked FBS and Loved the Oak Aged Yeti

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Dark appearance, one finger of brown head.
In the smell a strong toasted, vanilla, wood and coffe in the foreground. Full and impressive in the smell already.
Confirmed in the taste, with even cocoa, green hop, almost herbal, some root notes. Then a lot of hazelnut, cocoa nibs, and again vanilla in evidence.
Full and round body, smooth.
Pairing with dark chocolate and cocoa nibs, great.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle with a Sep. 11, 2012 bottling date into a Great Divide Brewing Company "Yeti" branded snifter

Pours pitch black and as viscous as motor oil capped by a thick dark brown head. Great retention, significant splotchy lacing. Robust aroma of bakers chocolate, toasted oak, fusel alcohol, and loads of roasted malt. Huge dark chocolate, dried black cherries, toasty oak, hint of molasses. The finish brings bitter espresso bean accents combined with bold hops and pleasant toasted oak with dark chocolate tones. Big, creamy, smooth full body. Gentle, perfect carbonation. Another exceptional variation of the original Yeti.
