Reviewed from notes. This was the only bottle out of 5 that I have tried that was not infected...

Pours a midnight black (like all yeti's) with 2 fingers of mocha head. Great head retention.

The aroma is outstanding. Fudge and bourbon are absolutely encapsulated with the oakiness from the barrels. Booze is bursting from my glass and it makes me all kinds of excited.

The taste follows the nose to the T. Bourbon soaked fudge brownies with vanilla icing drizzled on top! Outstanding barrel presence. Really just top notch!

Thick, viscous as hell, velvety smooth and chewy. Just shoot me in the face this has the best mouthfeel imaginable for a beer this big!

One of the best stouts I have ever had, hand down. Just mother fucking amazing!

A: Thick and black in the pour, with a viscous caramel colored head. No noticeable lacing, and retention is somewhat weak.

S: Coffee, licorice, and caramel upfront with notes of molasses in the back.

T: I'm amazed by how complex this brew is. Huge amounts of semi-sweet chocolate are followed by coffee, licorice, and molasses.

M: Full bodied and creamy, with a slight gritty texture.

D: Definitely worth seeking out, seeing as how it is one of the greatest of its style that I've come across.
