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.

Thank you DutchDrebus! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ ZZT 2016-1. 2015 Vintage. Black super creamy mocha bubbles. Nose is warming molasses, sugar, low bourbon, whisky, sugar, faintly herbal. Taste is chocolate syrup, bit too boozy, booze going to bit plastic, roast, chocolate, brown sugar,… thick malt. Good but a bit too messy & boozy for me. I liked but not as intensely as the others did.

Ba yeti ’15 - Huge thanks to Emil for this!
Pours a night black color, with a small, dark brown, creamy head.
Smells of melted milk chocolate, bakers chocolate, cocoa nibs, toffee and licorice. Very chocolate forward, while not getting very sweet on the nose, due to pleasantly toasty malts and spicy, oaken, yet flowery, warming Bourbon.
Tastes of oaken Bourbon accompanied by milk chocolate in all its decadent facetts, with layers of earth, bakers chocolate, rock sugar, whipped cream and a spicy whiff of cinnamon. Mousee au chocolat gets enriched by oak chips and a well accentuated earthiness, relying on the omnipresent, smooth whipped cream. A flowery quality blends into soft, melted caramel, wood bark and licorice, tied together by a warming, dry zing from the bourbon, complimenting to the chocolate.
Perfectly integrated Bourbon addition, which shines among a luscious milk chocolate sweetness by adding a nice, mellow yet spicy oakiness.

On tap @ Brouwer’s for Back in Black. Listed here at the standard Yeti 9.5%. Pours thick viscous blackish dark brown with thin oily dark mocha head. Aroma is heavily roasty dark chocolate malt, rich coffee, big dry barrel flavors, light bourbon and vanilla char on the back. Taste is huge rich dark chocolate malt, molten milk chocolate, oak. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Huge fudgy chocolate flavor lingers on the finish. Among the best Yetis, and that puts this in an elite category.

Pours a thick very dark brown with a remarkably tall reddish-brown head. I usually pour impy stouts this aggressively and rarely get this great of a head. It finally settles to a one-finger, ice cream float-like, caramel head. Chocolate, plastic, dark roasted malt nose. Sweet immediately, but gets progressively dry and bitter. Chocolate, smoky, dark roasted malt. Charred oak, but no oaky vanilla that I can pick up.
