Served in a goblet at Bukowski's in Cambridge.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger mocha head that for the most part is still there. It is a pitch black color with no clarity or vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super frothy mocha lacing down the glass.

Smell: Espresso, chocolate, char, smoke, molasses, and dark fruits.

Taste: Espresso, ash, oak, molasses, Bakers chocolate, toasted malts, earthy, bitterness, and some dark fruits.

Mouthfeel: Silky and creamy smooth, a little boozy, full bodied, low to medium carbonation, and a little bitterness in the room.

Overall: Getting through the whole yeti group. Each one has been awesome. I will be having more of these in the future along with the rest of the group.

Beautiful stout, dark brown head that lingered for a while. Straight up black coffee smells and flavors, very bitter for a stout in a very nice way. Couldn't decide if it was too bitter at first, but couldn't stop drinking it! Super thick, almost syrupy, which I loved.

A: Beautiful dark brown to black body with a fingers worth of espresso colored head which swirl to leave the most interesting to patterns to stare at.

S: Big coffee and espresso scents upfront, then chocolate enters the picture. Finally the oak finishes it off.

T: Coffee and espresso

M: Warm and all consuming. Great mouthfeel.

O: Wonderful!

Bottled on: DEC-23-2013

A: Pours a pitch black color with just over a fingers worth of head that slowly fades down to a thin layer of bubbles that leaves some nice sticky lacing

S: Lots of roasted malts and espresso up front with a touch of oak and vanilla. Quite coffee/espresso forward

T: Starts off with espresso and roast right off the bat. Some dark chocolate, vanilla, and oak notes come through behind and are more prominent mid-way through and towards the finish. Bitterness really gets kicked up near the finish as well, when the hops get mixed in with the bitter espresso. Alcohol absolutely nowhere to be found

M: Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Nearing on smooth and creamy, but still has a bit of a bite from the bitterness and roast

O: Definitely one of the better coffee stouts out there. The coffee is right up front and doesn't get muddled by anything else. Not sure how the espresso would hold up with extended age, but it certainly hasn't gone anywhere in 2 months. Fans of coffee stouts shouldn't pass this beer up
