Pours nearly black with brown edges. Opaque. Thick, creamy brown head with thick, thick lacing. Bitter coffee and espresso aroma with a hearty helping of chocolate. Earthy and woody, but not as much as the regular barrel-aged Yeti. Smooth, slick mouthfeel with a long finish. Bitter espresso and dark chocolate bite up front which stretch out into a warm milk chocolate and coffee-and-cream flavor. Some cereal, but not much Good vanilla and caramel in the back along with the oak. Acidic black coffee and malt finish. Excellent beer.

appearance: Mahogany dark dark brown. Rich tan head.
smell: Wow. Bittersweet chocolate, creamy sweetness, a touch of spice. Very nice.
taste: Adult milk-shake. A touch of sweetness but mostly dry, creamy goodness.
overall: This is a markedly better beer than the Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti imo. Great job.

A- Pours a nearly black dark, dark brown with a huge creamy, frothy chocolate colored head. Completely opaque held to light. Leaves great lacing. Absolutely gorgeous.

S- Smells great, lots of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and some vanilla sweetness and alcohol. You can also pick up on just a bit of hops as well.

T- Wow, this is a seriously flavorful beer. A giant wave of coffee and very bitter dark chocolate is the first thing to hit you. Vanilla is still there but definitely takes a back seat to the chocolate/espresso combo. The alcohol creates a slight warming effect but not too much. Finishes with a nice charred coffee bean flavor. Overall it's dominantly bitter instead of sweet.

M- On the full bodied side, very thick and chewy, the carbonation does a nice job of mellowing it out a bit.

O- A really excellent Imperial stout, it's nice to see one that's on the bitter side every once in a while. Must try.

Pours an opaque, deep brown color with a small, tight mocha head that leaves plenty of lacing.

Smells of big chocolate and coffee notes.

Tastes of the big roasted notes. Coffee, chocolate, and brown sugar dominate. Notes of vanilla, oak, and anise also add to the mix, but are a bit more subtle. Alcohol is noticeable and adds a bit of warmth in the throat.

Mouthfeel is full with a creamy amount of carbonation.
