Lucky to have this twice in a couple of weeks. The second time it was up against a lot of huge stouts. Both were Batch 2.

Dark khaki head, low carbonation. Smells like Yeti, whiskey and oak. Big whiff of chocolate and decadent malt.

First taste is so smooth and delicious. You want to swirl it around your mouth. Lots of chocolate comes through to balance out the wood and whiskey flavor. Drinks extremely well. I can't find one thing wrong with the taste of this beer.

This is probably the best stout I've had and I've never thought much of all the whole Yeti lineup other than the expresso one.

2008 vintage opened by ipa247.

A: Pours a near black color with raisin highlights beneath a thin dark brown head.
S: Smooth notes of vanilla, light woody barrel and oak scents, and a bite of bourbon and creamy chocolate.
T: Crazy smooth flavors of raisins, marshmallows, chocolate and vanilla with a very mild hint of warm bourbon in the finish. The aftertaste is sweet and full of raisins.
M: Full thick body, incredibly soft mouthfeel with soft carbonation, and very integrated and smooth alcohol that is a just a tiny bit warming.
O: I have a bottle of 2011 vintage that I was thinking about opening but after having this I can see it’s worth the wait. An overall thick and chewy stout.

EDIT: 2011 is an infected mess. Sour cherries galore. Damn you.
