look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

A-Ink black body. Dark brown head is half finger thin. A sudsy thin top layer remains with time. One of the few beers that is truly pitch black. Not darkest of browns or, black with brown edging. Truly pitch black.

S-Baker's chocolate. Woodsy. Earthy. Roasted steaming coffee. Hints of lactose. Inky. Molasses. Leathery. Chestnuts, acorns, other hard nuts. Great balance of sweet & pungent.

T-Sweet chocolate. Sweet malts. Coffee. Bright twang of dark fruits on the middle sip. Plums, prunes and raisins. Tobacco. The sip finishes a delicious bitter via dank hops. A perfect see-saw exchange of sweet and bitter in the taste.

M-Medium-low body. Low-high carbonation. Chocolate, oaky, coffee start in feel, (bitter-sweet). A dark fruit sour is the middle. The finish has the sour still clasped, onto bitter dank hops. The after-feel gives slightly numbing sensations due to quality hops. A roasted air is always persistent. Gets sticky and stickier as you sip.

O-Near perfection beer. My only qualms are the appearance and feel. A slightly bigger head could be present even if it is a stout. All the glorious pictures of Espresso Yeti are a freeze-frame in time. The head will flatten quickly in time ticking reality, almost as quick as your done pouring. I dunno. Maybe other pours will prove different. And the feel, the carbonation is subdued. A below average range. Thank goodness the body is creamy and flavorful to where it sips like a stout-spiked mocha-coffee. So one isn't all bent out of shape about carbonation. And there is a persistent slight sizzle that keeps the beer from being flat. Kudos. Mind you, the look and feel are still better than most beers. Espresso Yeti is Heaven On Earth if not Actual Heaven.
