Despite the abv (9.5%), this beers drinks as easy as one could get. Very smooth. As it warms, you can feel the alcohol more, but it never overwhelms you. I almost wish it would feel more boozy, but a bottle of this goes down so easy. Tasty. Not real smoky, bitter, or roasted. Just a very solid stout that rises to the occasion. I'm still wondering if I like the regular Yeti as much as this. But, I think it's that the OA quality is subtle and not overstated. Very good.
