smelled just like espresso, nice and creamy. The only thing that bothered me was that it was high in alcohol (it took away from the taste)

Poured from a 22oz bomber into two pint glasses to be shared with the room mate. Thick, midnight black liquid sat beneath a frothy brown head. Head retained the entire time, and left behind a massive amount of brown lacing, to the point that I wondered if I could ever get the glass clean again. Awesome looking beer, to say the least.

Smell is of extreme coffee, mixing with some chocolate, and a healthy dose of hops. A little bit of oak mixes in as well, but it's definitly been hidden by all of the other dimensions.

Taste is of very bitter and tannic espresso, milk chocolate, more hop flavor, and subtle vanilla. The expresso, again takes it over.

Mouth feel is thick, but very dry. The bitterness and espresso combine to make for a very bitter beer that dry's out your pallet. In fact, I felt this may be one of the most bitter brews I have ever had. This brought down the drinkability for me, since it isn't something I really want out of my stout.

In the end, I felt like there were too many dimensions built into the beer. The oak and stout flavors ended up being muted while the espresso and hops too over. It was still good, but I prefer the normal or oak aged yeti. Either way, I was wired after this brew.
