Enjoyed the 2006 vintage of this beer at a friends cellar cleaning share. May have been a little past its prime but was still dark, chocolaty and delicious.

A - Motor oil black. 1 inch creamy brown head that held for around a minute. Very thick and viscous with tiny carbonation bubbles.

S - Lots of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, with some booze. Smell started to fade a bit after a couple of minutes.

T - Woody and chocolaty. Sweet with a strong booziness. Bitter aftertaste.

M - Very thick and leaves a silky residue.

O - Strong smell, strong flavors. Thick and heavy. Really into this one.

A - Dark black opaque body, brown highlights, ghost of tan head, mild lacing.

S - Booze and oak, chocolate, coffee, a bit of dark fruit.

T - Follows the nose with chocolate and oak, a bit of coffee, mild bitter acidic close.

M - Bright, prickly, slick and a bit of drying in the close.

O - Exactly what you would hope, rich, full, warm. Another rock solid version of Yeti.

Now THIS is an imperial stout; challenging Rasputin for my favorite, and for me, WAY better than the Yeti oatmeal stout.

Smell and taste of espresso is strong, and great. You feel, but you can't taste the high ABV. Loved it. Poured from a glass, bottle labeled over 6 months ago. Closest to perfect taste that I have found.

Nice dark color
Good aroma
Too much tang/back taste acidy
Really wanted to like it but wouldn't want more than the tasting size I had
