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

Kept in a nice cool place for about 8 months before I finally had to drink it.
-22oz bottle bought fresh, in the great city this Imperial Stout was brewed, Denver.

A- Beautiful. Full,dark body with a chocolate milk looking brown head. 2 fingers of foam with decent retention. The sticky lacing didn't seem to want to leave.

S- Cocoa, coffee, vanilla and booze.

T- Similar to taste but the coffee dominates in a well matter. Warmness from the alcohol reminds you why its 9.5% abv.

M- Low carbonation, full bodied monster. Ends with a nice oily finish. A sipper to say the least.

O- I'm glad I finally decided to drink this, now I can go out and buy a few more. It's the perfect example of what an Imperial Stout should be! Enough said.

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

Pours black and oily with one fingered tan head that dissipates quickly.

Smell is heavy with chocolate, vanilla, a little coffee and a hint of citrusy hops.

Taste is very dark bitter chocolate. Lots of dark toasted malt. Slight bit of citrus and lots of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is full bodied, oily and smooth. Average carbonation.

Overall this was great.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 16/4/12 Nov/14/11 bottle

A like the regular Yeti this one is black right out of the bottle, just a slight dark cola edge, large dark foam hangs around long enough to leave several rings of lace pretty nice looking beer

S chocolate fudge and booze come out right away, a little smoke and vanilla but that's about all I pick up from barrel, smells decent but its pretty boozy

T now I get more evidence from the barrel with some oak and charred wood, there's still some hops in there even after the barrel and 6 months in the bottle, booze is better concealed then the nose, a little licorice and more wood on the finish

M pretty thick and silky and quite bitter, a little heat and a big burnt woody aftertaste lingers for a while

O other then a little booze popping up here and there I have little to complain about, big rich stuff that's pretty easy to enjoy

the barrel is subtle but I like it, just needs some age and that's about it, a big thanks to Rutager for getting this one into my hands

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

A: 1/2" brown head with a creamy consistency over black liquid.

S: Caramel, chocolate, vanilla, toasted malt, roasted barley, grassy hops, and oak.

T: Grassy and earthy hops up front with toasted malt, roasted barley, chocolate, yeast, wood, vanilla and caramel. Quite bitter.

M: Medium viscosity and a medium level of carbonation. Some drying from the alcohol and a hint of alcohol burn.

O: Definitely more hoppy than I'm used to for a Russian Imperial Stout, this beer could use a bit of aging.
