3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass, from the cellar. Vintage 2012 (June). Pours dark black, light brown head. Lots of sediment present. Aroma is coffee, chocolate malts and yeast. Taste is peppery / spicy yeast transitioning to black cofee and subtle dark chocolate notes. Toast. Definitely mellowed out during aging. Palate is syrupy, thick and slightly carbonated. Not my favorite yeti, but still good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - Dark chocolate, fruit esters and yeast. Jet brown with a rich brown head. Dark chocolate and dark fruit. Sweet raisin, which reminds me of Cadbury fruit and nut. Belgian yeast adds a nice fruity aspect that I quite like.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker brown, more opaque than the others. Bowed lacing ringed head. Peppery yeast, tinfoil BBQ’d raisins and bananas. Bit more bready initial taste than the others, but not as much as I thought it would be. Spicy, sweetcorn brine, sweet jets of malt towards the middle. Mouthfeel is betwixt between rich sweetness and a bit of a let down thinness and in stark contrast to the other Yetis. Twitches of yeast on the finish, caramel flamed and delicate linger. Disappointing but this to complete the set.

Bottle @Craig’s. Pours black, loved the spices coming through on the nose. On the palate, caramel, chocolate, molasses with a big fruit cake/Christmas spices thang going on. Loved the whole stout/belgian quad thing going on, so different to the original yeti.

Shared 2012 bomber. Limited bubbly cap atop a brutally dark brown. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, coffee, attic dust, tea leaves, wood, and a touch of smoke. Taste is dry sweetness (tea sweet), and dark roast coffee bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel, and late LONG dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has a funky smell to it that I?m not a fan. Taste is chocolatey but alright, dissappointed after the oak aged yeti.
