Poured into a Duvel snifter glass.

A - 5 - Couldn't ask for a more ideal appearance as far as stouts go. Extreme dark, burnt caramel colored head, as dark as they come. Pitch black, oily colored beer. Extremely impressive head potential and retention, especially when considering the high ABV. Really impressive, solid walls of lacing left behind on the glass. Very thick, dense and creamy head.
S - 4.75 - Tons of black, rustic coffee grounds, almost to a smokey level, very roasty. Vanilla bean, tons of malt, light touches of dark chocolate and an extremely distant, red pepper spiciness. The espresso is the center stage focal point here.
T - 4.5 - Medium sweet espresso, chocolate and malt upfront, fades into vanilla bean and a light almond nutiness, marzipan perhaps. Ends on a decently bitter, black coffee bean note. Excellent.
F - 4.5 - Nice medium/full creamy and thick body and mouthfeel.
O - 4.5 - Really awesome imperial stout. Definitely focused on the coffee, but not to a palate tiring extent. Would make a fine breakfast food pairing brew, but also works great as a warming, slow sipper. I tried this beer fresh since it is easily obtainable locally for, to determine if I want to buy another to let age. Yes! Definitely buy a second one to let age, has a decently noticeable hop profile that will surely fade with age and make the malt much more deep and robust. Highly recommend to fans of the style!

A little more coffee than I prefer. But a very good beer.

From the look and aroma I thought I was about to chew espresso beans. My thought was wrong. In my opinion the taste was perfectly balanced with chocolate, coffee and stouty goodness. No need to age this one.

Espresso Oak Aged Yeti pours a black color with a huge long lasting lacing tan head. There is a a chocolate espresso aroma with hints of oak. The taste is so creamy, nice chocolate notes, big oatmeal base, creamy espresso mixes in perfectly with the hints of oak. Big flavor, good body, very creamy. Overall a top beer. Big complex flavors, very creamy, its excellent.
