Picked up a bomber of this beer at the local grocery store for $11.99.

A- Pours a thick and viscous dark black color that comes out slowly. The head on this beer is a fantastic brown that reminds me of the head on coca cola. When held up to light this beer is opaque. Leaves some lacing on the glass as you drink it.

S- The smell is sweet as well as a little bit of bitter. Chocolate and espresso come forward. This beer smells powerful and delicious.

T- The taste is sweet but also well balanced with hops. Great deal of coffee and dark chocolate flavor.

M- This beer is actually a little bit more medium bodied than I had expected. It makes it very drinkable and delicious. Carbonation is light and it finished with bitter espresso flavors.

O- This beer was really fantastic. I loved every bit of it and cannot wait to have it again. It is one o those imperial stouts that you have to try if you are a fan of the style.

After having the yeti chocolate last night I was excited to try this version. Overall quite similar and both very good. Pours black with a velvet mocha head that leaves nice dark lace on the lace on the glass. Has a sweet milk chocolate smell to it that has burnt caramel and coffee notes. Taste very similar, upfront sweetness with a great smooth yet slightly bitter coffee notes in the back. Great consistecy and easily a beer i'd buy again

4.36/5  rDev +2.1%

A: Extremely dark brown with ruby appearing at the fringes. Shallow mocha head that all but vanishes, doesn't leave much lace either. Only a small amount of carbonation visible.

S: The espresso is equally matched by the oak, with dark roasted malts giving it a bitter backbone.

T: The oak takes center stage this time, roasted malts and espresso working to back it up nicely. Only a tiny amount of vanilla is present; I do wish there was more. The flavors are still very well balanced, and the bitterness is intense but not nearly overpowering and is also countered by a touch of sweetness. Good length of the finish with some chocolate and espresso notes.

M: Silky with moderate carbonation- just enough to give it zest but not enough to interrupt the smoothness. I always like my stouts thick-thick, so subjectively it could have more viscosity, but pretty hefty regardless of that.

O: An awesome beer, and for a great price. I already had their oak aged IS and trusted them with the barrels, and in this one they proved that they also know how to balance easy-to-oversell flavors like coffee. Very palate-pleasing, great look and feel, and dark enough to put hair on your chest without tasting its bitterness for hours afterwards. Try it with breakfast!
