This beer pours absolutely gorgeous just like a big stout should, hosting a nearly four finger thick malted milk chocolate brown head. Great retention as it slowly fades leaving a wall of fat lace and rocky bubbles. Body is thick tar blackness. Nose has tones of smoked malts, espresso beans, dark fruits and even faint minerally hop character. Wow, they were going for an espresso feel(of course) with this one and they hit it o the nose. The first thing you taste is full rich espresso feel that is silky as it glides across the tongue. The second thing I notice is the distinct oaky feel which I may have overlooked as hops on the nose. Definitely more oaky than the other aged Yeti. As you drink that oak feel really wears on the tongue and becomes to dominate for me. Mouthfeel is of oak and dry dark fruits. Drinkability would be much better if the oak wasn't so overpowering.
