Bottle to hfs sniffer

A: very dark brown but completely opaque and poured thick with basically no head like motor oil. There was some thin mocha lacing around the top.

S:the first thing that you smell is the expresso/coffee and it is a pretty powerful and dominant which is what I look for in a coffee stout, it really is a deep dark coffee smell but there are hints of alcohol that I am confident will come out with age.

T: wow so the espresso part is really no joke here you can taste it as soon as it touches your lips. There is a shock of bitter expresso there is a tiny hint of hops too. This then more on into a more deep dark coffee to chocolate like flavors that are strong flavors they even have some sweetness to them. There is also notes of smokiness that clearly come from the oak that complement the powerful coffee well. It's almost more like coffee then stout but I like that though it could use more balance.

M: it is very thick and heavy as it is so full of coffee/expresso that you can almost feel the grit of the coffee as it goes down. That being said it still does go down smooth and is drinkable in sips despite being a little hot from the alcohol but as I said that should go away with age.

O: this thing is one if the most in fm your face coffee beers I have ever had the only thing comparable to this level of coffee is WnB and even that doesn't give a solid caffeine buzz halfway through the bottle. I really like it because I like the in your faceness but it could use a little more balance. All that being said it is definitely my favorite yeti so I do recommend a try.
