A: Pours viscous, utterly black with a medium-dark brown head.

S: Nose has notes of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak and caramel. Oak, vanilla, caramel character are quite subdued, and the nose is somewhat weak in general.

T: Dark chocolate dark roast coffee, some oak, some caramel, maybe a tiny bit of vanilla.

M: Full bodied, and fairly smooth.

O: Really good, more akin to the regular yeti than chocolate oak or espresso oak yetis.

It's dark and stormy outside so I wanted a dark, rich, malty brew to go with the evening. Jackpot!

This stuff pours an opaque brown that's almost black with a thick brown head that lightens as it recedes leaving almost no film on the top but lots of nice, sticky lacing on the glass. The head is about a finger high and doesn't last too long. The smell is rich, roasted malts with caramel undertones. I didn't notice any of the vanilla mentioned on the bottle, though. Almost no hops come through at all, neither in the aroma nor in the flavor, which is, like the smell, heavy with the roasted malt with caramel, cocoa and coffee mixed in for excellent complexity. There is sweetness on the front of the tongue along with beautifully balanced bitterness as the liquid washes over that portion of my taste buds. This is one full bodied brew, almost viscous in texture, lightly carbonated, very creamy in the mouth.

Overall, this is an excellent beer, outstanding, but not truly world class. That said, however, it's a remarkably good counterpart to a sweet Russian Imperial Stout like Samuel Smith's, more bitter, less sweet. Somewhat more expensive, so I doubt I'll have another anytime soon, but still worth trying.

A: great cmouthful with a littlehead, love the mocha colored head

S: Sweet with hints of oak and chocolate

T: Sweet with hints of chocolate and coffee mellowed by the oak. Some molasses taste but not overwhelming

M: Medium mouthfeel with average carbonation

O: Very impressed with this stout and will try to pick up again. I do prefer some other Imperial Stouts over this but this is nice enough to have once in a while.
