Poured from a 22 oz. bottle with a 1/18/12 bottling date into a Great Divide Brewing Company Yeti branded snifter
Pours a viscous pitch black capped by a dark beige one and a half finger head. Excellent retention and bunches of splotchy lacing. Roasted earthiness and malt, espresso, vanilla-touched oak, bakers chocolate on the nose. Big roasty and malty espresso notes, underlying oakiness, charred biscuit, earthy dark chocolate, vanilla, burnt raisin and molasses. On the finish bittering hops make their presence known along with bitter dark cocoa, and more general roastiness. Big full body that means business, yet velvety and creamy. Moderate, gentle carbonation. An exceptional variant of Yeti. The addition of coffee here actually adds complexity rather than overpowering the base beer, a downfall of many imperial stouts that have coffee added.
