2012 Vintage - Bottle Number 1705
A - pours black with a chocolaty head that thing and forms a nice ring around the glass
S - chocolates and bourbon are quickly overshadowed by dirty diapers...something's up here
T - sweet chocolates up front moves to fruity sour notes. Sour citrus with chocolate and a splash of bourbon follow it up. This one is definitely infected, as the nose indicated.
M - thing with a decent carbonation burn
D - this was an infected bottle. I remember this being great and was excited to sit down and formally review it, but it just gives me an excuse to cross paths with Yeti in the future.

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.
