Pours a oil-slick black color with a very thick brown head that fades down to a one-finger head.

Aroma is creamy with a good dose of coffee in the nose. A bit of chocolate shows underneath the nose as well. I can't smell any oak but otherwise, very nice aroma.

Taste is creamy upfront and gives way to dark fruits and cocoa in the middle. Wow. The coffee character is here but it in no way overwhelms the other flavors. Wow. Again, I'm impressed here.

Mouthfeel is full of lingering bitter coffee, cream and chocolate flavors.

Holy Shit! I'm so glad I picked this up. I love the flavors and the mouthfeel is just where I like it. It's got the right amount of creaminess and the other flavors seem well balanced as well. I'm not sure if you can do better than this. Would improve even more with age. Very, very, very nice. I will be seeking this out the next time I go to Mass.

Don't worry about the rating. This is one hell of a beer that deserves its' marks. I can't wait to open the bottles of 2007 Yeti and Oak Aged Yeti that I have.

Bottle from Total Wine poured into a pint glass.

A: Beautiful. Dark as night. Dark brown head.

S: Fantastic. Strong espresso smell.

T: So much going on. Spicy hoppiness that the carbonation singes into your tongue. Bitter bite. Great coffee flavors. Lingering espresso aftertaste.

M: Thick. Smooth but bubbly. Silky smooth at first, but stinging carbonation right after that.

D: Great coffee stout. Not the go to coffee stout, but a good variation to keep things interesting.

10/10
