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

650 mL bottle poured into a Kuhnhenn snifter. Bottled 10/7/2011.

Appearance - Pours with a big mocha head. Settles to just a collar, but a nice one. Just a couple of flecks of lace.

Smell - Oak and lots of black patent malt. Slightly grassy nose to it. Very chocolatey.

Taste - Oak immediately present again, but dies down to a more standard Yeti flavor. Still very green, almost grassy. Chocolatey and bitter. A variety of bitternesses. Oak bitterness, hop bitterness, and malt bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Abrasive bitterness, but nice body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - All these Yeti beers have the same grassy bitterness that I don't welcome in a stout. I get that it's an RIS, but it's over the top. The oakiness doesn't smooth it out at all, just adds to it.

Completely, pure, ultimate blackness poured into a snifter. 2 inch creamy, mocha head lingers...
Rich coffee, bitter chocolate bouquet.
Creamy, ultra smooth mouthfeel, with some vanilla coming from the oak barrels...Rich roasted coffee, sweetness from the malts, hop bitterness too, with everything so well balanced, so well blended, it's an absolute wonder to the senses.
Incredibly complex, amazing beer!
Cannot recommend it enough!
