My 1,000th review! I never thought I would reach this milestone and it just happened to land on my birthday. Time for something special.
2011 vintage served slighty chilled into a goblet.
Barrel Aged Yeti is nearly black in color with creamy off-white head. It settles quickly but leaves a short layer on top.
Aroma is sweet and boozy. Similar to the oak aged Yeti but with a hint of red wine and whiskey.
Flavor is very well balanced with great depth. The barrel aging elements never overwhelm the experience, just enhance it. It has rich roasted malt body with bits of dark bitter chocolate and coffee. Then the barrel character comes through with the vinous vanilla and peaty whiskey. A hint of smoke and a nice caramel finish.
Mouthfeel is full bodied and perfectly carbonated. The alcohol is well-controled and never seems to dominate, desipte the strength.
Overall an excellent example of barrel aged stout and worthy of a momentous review.
