Huge thanks to gford217 for this one! This beer pours near perfect from a 750Ml bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark black body with a nice darker hazelnut brown head. Very nice looking.
The smell is a huge malt bomb. Predominately Caramel scents, some roasted chocolate malts, and a nice toffee scent stick out the most. The roasted scents effervesce slight amount of whiskey, but this is characteristic is too subdued. I would have liked more whiskey here.
The taste is that of a top notch Russian Imperial Stout. Very smooth, as the flavors blend perfectly together. Very toned down in comparison to a fresh Yeti. The roasted flavors are awesome, and really maintain the original yeti bite. The chocolate is very sweet and rich and the toffee flavors really flourish. A salty taste arises from the roasted/burnt malts. The whiskey lies subtlety in the background, yet the oak and vanilla are prevalent. The flavors combine so well together, and there is a great smooth creaminess to this beer. The malts form a dry bill, and remind me of fresh darklord 09. Great beer, and am very glad I got to try this.
Bottle #290 out of 470.
