3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2011 Bottle; Pour is murky brown with a fine bubbled modest khaki head in this glass ; stick lacing present here - the nose is vinous, oak barrel treatment, earth and vanilla; the flavor profile is heavy on the dark fruits, vinousness- moving into the caramel, bittering chocolate, vanilla, whisky - with some souring character ultimately dominating here - someone mentioned infected bottles - and I wouldnt doubt that this bottle is in that category. Oh well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 2011 vintage: Deep brown pour with a thick brown head. Nose is rich; mostly vanilla and oak, a little bit of chocolate and espresso. Flavor profile is similar, but the barrel aging becomes more prevalent along with roast. Good, but loses a lot of the cocoa and espresso notes that I have come to crave from the Yeti. Phew, not one of the infected bottles that I’d been hearing about.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber bottle. Pours midnight black with very large tan head and a super oily mouthfeel. Carbonation was light to medium. Nose is chocolate roast, nuts, oak, and strong whiskey. Taste is rich fruit, choc, barrel, and coffee bean. Finish is long lasting and roasted the hell out. Rich and flavorful RIS.

Get ready for the yeti as this beer packs a punch and takes no prisoners. Well blended with the berrel aging and at 12..5% abv there is no wondering why people watch out for the yeti.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Aarhus tasting. Black with a lasting dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, wood and notes of red wine - probably from the wood. Flavor is very sweet, very bitter and light acidic. Dry and rather bitter finish with warming alcohol and a small acidity. Oily and smooth. The acidity seems to come more from the barrel than from an infection. 220113
