look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Delirium Tremens snifter. Label says Bottled on Dec 20 2010. Over a year old...yes!

A- Pours the blackest of blacks with a full finger's worth of dark tan head that retains and eventually disperses to a 1/4 inch ring around the edge of the glass along with full trails of lacing.

S- Smells of burnt wood and dark chocolate. Not getting much coffee aroma though. It's there, just not very apparent.

T- The espresso comes through in the flavor well though. Burnt coffee mixed with dark chocolate, some smoky char notes and a metallic aftertaste which fades after a few sips. The alcohol has certainly mellowed out after a year of being in the bottle. It's well-hidden now, making for a very smooth drink. The oak also is more calm than in other younger Oak-Aged Yeti incarnations I've recently had.

M- Substantially thick with medium carbonation that provides a more lively feel.

O- A great take on the Yeti that only gets better with age.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours pitch black, with a thick dark mocha head and great lacing.

Smells of dark sweet roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffe and a forest after it rains, very nice.

Taste is complex, a touch of bitter chocolate sweetness, roasted malts, black coffee beans, a touch of floral hops on the end and another taste of coffee in the aftertaste.

Feels thick, and cots the tongue, yet silky and easy to drink. Hides its abv well.

I am relatively new to the Imp Stouts, but I really loved this beer. Big and bold, a great blend of flavors and texture, a very well made beer. Even my wife(a hop head to the core) liked this one, and that's nothing short of amazing.

DOA
