Ah! A late breakfast awaits in a 19.2 fluid ounce can. Most of it fits into a clear Imperial pint glass. It's dark brown, sort of the color of a cola soda. The head, modest but enduring, is more of a dark tan shade. Roasted malt is the majority of the aroma, with some nuttiness and vague sweetness as well. Very rich, almost thick on the tongue, is the first taste sensation. There's also noticeable carbonation. For the eyes, some beautiful glass lacing. For something this viscous, the flavors are surprisingly subdued. Even the roasted malt is kept in check by the soft earthiness of the pecan. The included maple seems to be overpowered by the malt, pecan and alcohol contributions. Yes, alcohol is detected, by nothing like most brews with a nine and a half percent ABV. Fears that this would be as sweet as a pecan pie have been proven unwarranted. This has great balance for an Imperial Stout. For better or worse, it's more of a pecan than a maple-pecan stout. The maple seems more of a sweetness to take the edge off the roasted malt bitterness than it does to add discernable flavor. It's there, but not enough to get top billing. Overall, a very nice and potent Imperial Stout with subtle flavoring.

19.2oz can. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a good-sized, light brown head of foam. It left sudsy trails of lace on the glass. It smelled of maple syrup, pecan, chocolate, toffee and subtle coffee notes. Nice subtle maple and pecan flavors with sweet chocolate and some coffee.

Canned January 21st.

Pours black with a great head of tan foam.

Smells roasty, nutty, semi sweet from the maple.

Taste is maple, nutty, roasted malt in that order. Finish is on the nutty side but all 3 flavours are there from start to finish. No hoppy bitterness at all.

Good mouthfeel, maybe a tad thinner than I expected. Alcohol is pretty much a non factor.

Another very good variant of Yeti.

an awesome combination of extras in this special version of yeti. i think this base beer lends itself so well to cool adjuncts like this, its robust and defined, but not sweet or overly heavy to the extent that it takes a ton of something added in to taste it. i think the maple and the pecan are both relatively subtle in this, but thats part of the appeal for me. the maple is there for sure in the nose, maple syrup. the good stuff, sticky and rich amber, woodsy and wintery and warming, amazing with the coffee character from the dark roasted barley in here, it fits in so well. the pecans dont have much of a nose, maybe somewhat more of a toasted profile than i get in the original, but its not obviously pecan until i taste it. the maple and the pecan surprisingly dont taste like pie in the beer, they kind of stay separate, well as they fit together, they retain their own identities. the nuts are awesome with all the body, they are earthy, a little sweet, and really give some incredible depth to this. the maple lingers on the finish but isnt too much, and there is enough bitterness from the dark grain to balance it. lots of coffee character there at the finish too, and such a smooth body! a really fine version of this, i could tolerate both the maple and the pecans being amplified a bit, but their mellow nature makes this as drinkable as the original. delicious, well executed, and overall another killer variant of yeti!
