Thanks to CH for this awesome addition to the Amazing line of Yeti brews from Great Divide.
Pour is dark, thick and heavy. Small to medium head is noticeable..lacing is sticky and leaves rings all down the glass.
On the nose is plenty of bourbon. Roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla and more bourbon. Mouthfeel is thinner than I expected from a stout in the yeti line. Not as full bodied as say and Oak Aged yeti, but still a very good Taste is cocoa and vanilla. Roasted malt and bourbon come in hot. Slightly boozy, but very balanced. The finish is dry and long, no doubt due to the heavy influx of bourbon aged onto the brew. I would say that this is a very pleasing and balanced beer. Although, I don't believe that it lives up to the hype that has surrounded it. It could be only that it is very rare. I enjoyed this beer very much! If you get the chance definitely give this one a try, but don't go out of your way for it! Cheers!

Served on-tap in an 8 oz goblet. Not much head, but it has an incredibly deep dark brown-black color that no light can penetrate. Nice mild to moderate lacing. The aroma is out of this world, it reach up through your sinuses and grabs your brain by the hippocampus--coffee, molasses, a bit of plums. The flavor is deep, dark, and complex--coffee, chocolate, molasses, grapefruit, and a smokey sweetness that hovers on your palate. Mouthfeel is very thick and chewy, amazing. This is an outstanding imperial stout. My previous gold standard was Old Rasputin, but this one, though different, is just as magnificent!

On tap @ Churchill's "Night of the Yeti" during SDBW. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours black with few bubbles around the rim and no lace.
N: Sweetish whiskey booze is evident. Like a chocolate brownie soaked in whiskey.
T: Mildly sweet, vanilla present with some oaky notes and dark chocolate, grainy/malty.
M: Full body and light carbonation. Slick and oily roasted finish.
O: Aside from the low carbonation, this was very enjoyable.
