Very dark and heavy stout. Carbonation seemed to liven up as the beer warmed as did the booze. Loved visual of the dark color and cinnamon head on top. Great beer for having on occaision but wouldnt make it a regular go to. also getting lots of coffee flavor.

Bottled 1/24/13, poured into a snifter.

A- pours pitch black with no light seeping through, thick and creamy tan head retains long after the pour and leaves solid layers of lace around the glass upon agitation, you could float a bottle cap in this five minutes after the pour, perfect appearance

S- dark and roasty notes provide a light charred smokiness, strong melted toffee and caramel aromas give it a nice sweetness mid-palate, bitter chocolate and a kick of hops at the end

T- the smoky roast comes through more in flavor than it does aroma. Charred wood flavors quickly transition into toffee and caramel malty sweetness, reminds me of the caramel chews. Bitter hop notes break through near the end, despite the bold roasted malt flavors, balancing it out nicely. Bitter coffee with piney hops on the finish with more herbal coffee on the linger

M- thick and creamy body, like liquid velvet. Low carbonation provides a silky mouthfeel and a smooth finish, just a touch of warming alcohol but hidden quite well overall

O- this is a fine RIS. Perfect pour, roasty, smoky, sweet and bitter, with a creamy smooth mouthfeel. This is my first Yeti, I'm looking forward to trying more.
