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.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aromas are spicy Belgian yeast, light roasted malt, plums. Tastes nothing like the others, fruity and dark sugars. Light body, and finishes a bit thin too.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 25.01.2014, 0,65l bottle (bbd. october 2012) @ home:
Big slightly brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is kind of strange and slightly sweet, dark malts, broth, yeast, soy sayce, caramel, chocolate, grass, butterscotch. Taste is slightly sweet, dark malts, butterscotch, yeast, licorice, dark sugar, caramel, broth, grass. Medium bitterness, a little thin watery body. Fair enough, but not really my cup of tea. And even though it’s an old bottle, I don’t really think it would have been any better if it was fresh either. Imperial stout and belgian yeast, not the perfect combo.

Pitch black with a medium-brown head, this has an interestingly sweet, spicy flavor that’s almost plant-like and very green. It’s an interesting mix of a stout with Belgian yeast that yields a light, creamy, well-flavored imperial stout. This is smooth.
