From a bottle into a spiegelgau snifter.

It pours brown with maybe a little orange/red. Decent retained head with mostly small bubbles. Smells chocolate, malt, bread, a tiny bit of pepper and fruit.

Great mouth feel, smooth and bubbly at the same time. Chocolate first then some coffee, not very boozy untill the last minute. Just great all the way through. Very enjoyable.

A free 3/4 filled growler @ Market District because they ran out mid pour. Lucky me!

Appearance: Black motor oil pour with a half finger brown head. Absolutely wonderful looking in the glass

Smell: Deep espresso, dark chocolate, vanilla, slight oak. Amazing

Taste: Big espresso characters upfront, chocolate and slight vanilla notes in the middle, with an oaky espresso finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body, very light for an imperial stout. Not as chewy as most, but the drinkability is great. I dont feel much if any of the alcohol

Overall: Iv loved every yeti iv had to date, so im not suprised i enjoyed this one so much. This may be the best in the series. I rated the regular oak aged Yeti higher, but thats because it was aged a few years and was less bitter. Enormous espresso aromas and flavors. The oak character adds a very nice complexity to it. This is underrated if you ask me, and would be up there with Breakfast stout if the aftertaste lingered longer.

Holy crap this beer was a mouthful. I'm a hophead and don't drink coffee but I did like this one. Burnt coffee/non-sweet chocolate aroma and flavor start to finish. Coffee really sets in strongly after but maybe very noticeable for me because I don't drink coffee. Not much sweetness and any hops is hard to pull out. Very creamy mouthfeel. Wow 5 minutes later coffee flavor still lingers strongly. This was very good and I look forward to comparing with others.
