4.09/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Bottled on date of 12/23/13

Appearance - Pours thick, viscous and black with a dark tan, finger width head. Fair retention.

Smell - Mocha dominates the aroma, as chocolate, vanilla and coffee notes blend in unison to deliver a marvelous bouquet. Hints of earth and oak.

Taste - Follows the nose. Nice roasty flavor off-set by some light vanilla and chocolate sweetness. Woody notes, and a leafy bitterness in the undertone. Earth. Milk chocolate and light coffee roast linger in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - This brew loses a lot here. Closer to medium than full in body; very thin for the style, leaving the beer feeling a bit hollow. Low carbonation. Really detracts from what is an otherwise amazing beer. Smooth, in the least.

Overall - Great flavor, but a disappointing mouthfeel. Not sure if the addition of espresso caused the weak body or what, because I don't recall the regular Oak Aged Yeti being this thin and lifeless. I don't know that I'd buy it again; just too many great impys out there for a better price.
