Great Divide Oak-Aged Yeti Imperial Stout

Appearance: Dark as hell, thick, pours like motor oil, full finger of head, can't see a bit of light through it

Smell: Oak and nutty malt smell, very little hops present if any

Taste: Very deep chocolate, oak, and nutty taste, thick, no hop taste presence, leaves a good finish, but a little tough going down

Mouthfeel: Deep, pretty carbonated, can slightly taste the alcohol on the aftertaste, thick feel

Drinkability: Great combination of being a very thick stout and being able to drink a lot of it, would drink it all night, amazing taste, well balanced between the oak flavor and the natural nutty/chocolate flavors of the beer, 9.5% ABV, 75 IBUs (where's it coming from?), strange because the hops are basically not a direct factor in the taste and smell, but overall it's a great beer
