look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
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.

This review is of the 2009 vintage
Pours a pitch black body with a one finger mocha head. Head retention and lacing were average at best.
Smell is an amazing mixture of sweet whisky, brownie a la mode, vanilla, burnt malts, and chocolate syrup. Similar to aromas found in Southern Tiers Choklat but heavier on alcohol.
Taste is still hot and big on booze, with some fudge, charred malts, and a bit of bitterness. I like strong beers but this one lacks some balance to round it out. Wish it tasted like it smelled.
Mouthfeel is full and aggressively carbonated. Body was somewhat oily/syrupy. Head died rather quickly which was disappointing.
Overall this beer was good but pretty pricey. I figured after letting it age for 4 years it would be smoother but it still has quite a bite. I love all the yetis but I'd have to say this was prolly my least favorite along with Belgian yeti
