Dangerous beer! Be warned!

Pours luxurious black with deep brown head that has a sexy contrast. Aromas of espresso (of course), baker's chocolate, and marshmallow are present. Sipping through the generous head is a lot like sipping espresso through the creamy crema - quite a sensory experience. Viscous body, dark roasted coffee beans, wet coffee paper filter, and slight chalky component are noticed on the palate. Finish is very long and roasty. Very drinkable for the style.

A: dark brown quarter finger head on a jet black body with no light getting though. still has nice lacing.

S: oak, bourbon, roasted malts, dark chocolate and vanilla. Not getting much espresso from the aroma.

T: roasted malt base with the espresso not overpowering and mostly in the finish. vanilla, oak, nuts and some milk chocolate although it is light.

M: thick body and moderate carbonation. smooth.

Overall: I really like how the espresso is applied with this one. The supporting notes arent overdone. The yeti base stout is just so good to start that these "special editions" all taste good.
