From a bomber into a pint glass. This bottle in particular was fresh only being bottled one month ago. Pours pitch black with a really nice big dark brown head, just the way a good stout should look. The head has great retention, there till almost the last drop. Leaves great lacing all the way down the glass. The smell right away for me was surprisingly chocolate followed by coffee/espresso. There was also a big roasted malt flavor as well as hints of vanilla. The taste was chocolate and coffee. A huge coffee/espresso after taste. Roasted malt was also big in the taste. Not as much coffee flavor as I was expecting as some reviews say it's too much but I found it to be almost perfect. Not overpowering by any means. The mouthfeel was perfect for a stout, thick and mildly chewy. High ABV which was nicely hidden. A very drinkable stout. Another beer from the Yeti family that is fantastic. I've got another one in the cellar thats got over a year on it so I'm anxious to see how it's aged compared to this fresh one. Though I'm going to pick up some more fresh ones as well.
