Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout

Had this a couple of weeks ago on draft at The Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA but this review is a follow-up with a 650 mL bottle.
This one is partially poured into the 22 oz Terrapin snifter, the perfect glass for this type of brew.
Jet black pour that is not necessarily as viscous as I was expecting. Actually quite carbonated too. The head is a typical mocha, coffee one with some good retention and lace.
Nose and tastes are pretty typical with burned malts, molasses and astringent coffee. Not much to report here other than the obvious. The finish accentuates all of the usual stuff; alcohol, bitterness and dark chocolate notes as well as the coffee.
Frankly this is what it is and very little else. If you want a big coffee stout then you will be delighted. If you don’t, then you’d better not go anywhere near this beer!
There really isn’t much to report here other than what you would expect, and you had better be looking for some serious coffee bitterness too.
I liked this better on draft.
Probably one and done for me but obviously has some serious cellaring potential.
