Huge sample poured for free at the brewery before the Rockies game, these brewers were very generous and I had an awesome time at their facility, reviewed from my notepad, color is pretty much black, one inch foamy brown head, aroma consists of coffee, wood, dark cocoa, and roastiness, starts off with a big dry espresso taste, fades into some sweeter but roasty malts in the finish, warms up with more oak and maltiness coming to the surface, full bodied, soft to medium carbonation, could probably finish a bomber, it is a big beer but alcohol is hidden well, smooth for having coffee in it, I enjoy Yeti by itself and the coffee component made it even better in ways, glad they experimented with aging this beer in different ways, would drink again, worth trying

Pours a sludge-like deep, deep brown with a finger of dense, dark khaki head, like the crema on top of a shot of espresso. Impressive lacing for an imperial stout.
Smells of bitter chocolate, black licorice, roasted, borderline burnt barley and a touch of oak.
Tastes big and bold -- bitter chocolate, black coffee, oaky vanilla, milk chocolate. A little caramel sweetness. Smooth espresso on the finish. Nice lasting roasty bitterness.
Full mouthfeel that coats the entire palate and lingers. Creamy, with slightly prickly carbonation.
Overall, this is a roasty, roasty stout with just enough sweetness to balance it out. There doesn't seem to be a huge oak presence, but I guess it may have served to soften the edges and meld the bold flavors. A great barrel aged impy stout, though not the best.
