22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass, sipped for an hour and a half

Look - Thick motor oil black, with a beautiful milk chocolate brown half finger head. The lacing on this beer is thick, top notch.

Smell - A wonderful whisky up front, with notes of vanilla and espresso and some chocolate

Taste - A nice roasted espresso with hints of chocolate and vanilla. A suprising bitterness likely accentuated by the espresso beans helps cut the maltiness. As it warms, the espresso really comes through and takes center stage, almost too much.

Feel - This is a thick and chewy beer, definitely a nice slow sipper.

Overall - This is a good strong stout. Pretty standard in terms of big bold flavor, however I felt the bitterness was a bit too prevalent as this stout warmed. It would have been a bit more agreeable if was slightly sweeter. Still very enjoyable, no doubt.

This is one of the best coffee stouts that I ever had. I have had a few other yeti beers but this one clearly is the star player right here folks. The 6 pack of highland black mocha stout was blown out of the water by this. This blows the others from the oak aged lineup out of the water. This is as good as a coffee stout is going to get. Cheers! A (95-99) world class

Bomber into a snifter appears black in color with a khaki head. Nose is citrus pepper, earth, roast and charred grain. Taste is bitter roast, earth, citrus, coffee and tobacco. This is medium to light in body with modest carbonation. Not bad, not great.

My wife brought this home from a business trip to Denver and boy am I glad she did! Very complex and unique aged stout. There is a lot going on here and it all goes together very well.

2015 vintage
22oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours jet black in color with a one-finger dark brown creamy head that eventually reduces to a thin film on top, the head is about as dark as it gets

S- bold mocha espresso on the nose, with notes of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, herbal coffee, big charred malt, milk chocolate, oak & a hint of prune

T- huge charred malt up front gives bold notes of dark chocolate, caramel & toffee. Mid-palate brings out lots of herbal mocha espresso notes, as well as milk chocolate. The finish is oaky, with notes of raisin. Lingers of mocha espresso and charred malt

M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel that continues into a velvety finish, abv hidden well

O- huge roast notes, true to the Yeti style. Espresso and chocolate meld together to create a bold and enjoyable beer. ABV heat is nearly gone at almost three years old, very good
