This is the standard against which all imperial stouts shall be judged! Are there better well yes. But this is an easily obtainable gem that can be found in almost any serious craft beer section.. it pours motor oil with heavy lacing and tastes of smoky complexity this stout is best enjoyed on the warm side of chilled.. This is a go to imperial stout that shouldn't be overlooked and at 9.5%abv it'll do the trick quite nicely

Opague black body. Huge brown undulating head with great retention and lace. Bubbles of all sizes.
Very strong and spiced molasses, caramel, brown sugar and hops with a grassy hint in the nose.
Intense flavors of burnt cocoa and coffee bean. Caramel on steroids and a pleasant smoked note spanning the whole. Plenty of residual sugars. Incredible aftertaste of dark chocolate truffle with a generous serving of rough hops spiking the experience.
Beyond full body. Thick and heavy finishing somewhat dry with a good coating.
Great brew and highly drinkable. Beware of the Yeti's strength though. The alcohol is not readily apparent in the smell or taste but it's there alright.
