look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
A: The beer has a ring of caramel around the outside edge, but aside from that it is black. No head. A little spotty. Not laced, but will leave lines.
S: It's nice. Sort of makes me want to crack another bottle of Lost Abbey Angel's Share... Smells like chocolate pudding with a little bit of coffee grinds. Maybe even like a dark mousse.
T: It's really nice. Light. Not overwhelming. It's a cooled down version of Yeti with a sweet, black coffee/espresso hint.
M: There may be a little too much carbonation to this one for my liking, but it's interesting, because the carbonation thins out the stout allowing that dry oily black coffee feel to come out.
OVERALL: I'm breaking down a bomber of 2010 in 8oz. pours. This beer isn't going to get old any time soon. It's a great beer to nurse. Very well done. Ultimate compliment: My mother doesn't come across many beers that she likes, but Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter, Nut Brown, and Oatmeal Stout were some of her favorites. She loves this Yeti.

Was lucky to grab a bomber of this fresh from the distributor.
A: beautiful dark brew with bright caramel head the whole way through.
S: strong notes of espresso and oak with a slight note of booz.
T: also strong espresso and oak most of the way through with a finish of more boozy than I prefer or hoped for. However, with the ABV that it has I guess you could make a case for it being smooth.
M: surprisingly clean (whatever the heck that means). I was expecting a much larger and fuller mouthful - very malty and almost milkshake-like. It was much more drinkable and smooth, until the boozy finish. Definitely worth a bomber though.
