3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared w James and Streets. Dark, almost-black pour with brown head. Aroma of roast, alcohol and some fruit. Taste is more boozey than regular Yeti and I definitely get some sweetness upfront. Not an insanely complex palate, but interesting enough. Chocolate, raisins, and alcohol. Mouthfeel is a little on the thicker side.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a Duvel tulip. Bottled on June 17, 2011 printed on label.
Appearance: Pours a dark cola brown with a 2 finger creamy milk chocolate brown head. Head dissipates slowly into chocolate milk-like bubbles before leaving a small circle of sediment floating in the middle. Excellent lacing.
Smell: Milk chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Iím not picking up the Belgian notes I expected, but it still smells very good.
Taste: Dark fruits and molasses up front followed by chocolate malt in the middle before ending with roasted malt and a touch of hoppy bitterness at the finish. Aftertaste is bittersweet with just a hint of Belgian yeast.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, thick and creamy with a just the right amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. It goes down far easier than its 9.5% ABV would suggest.
Overall: Excellent beer overall. Iím a huge fan of the Yeti series of stouts and I must say that this one reigns supreme, in my opinion. If you get the chance, buy this one. Itís a great beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Poured very deep brown with a short, yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up darker fruits, dry, spicy yeast, and a blend of darker chocolates accented by vanilla and burnt black patent malt.. the yeast worked hard, and got in the way of some Yeti goodness.. still enjoyable, though. The flavor found roasty black patent, chocolate, and molasses malts at the core.. dry fruity yeast, a hint of clove, and vanilla around.. finished with alcohol warmth amplifying fruity yeast and tasty residual chocolates. Medium-plus bodied, dry, and yeasty on the palate.. decent amount of roast too.. this was good and interesting, but I think I like regular Yeti more.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma strong of roasted malts, a little bit of spice from the yeast, some dark chocolate/coffee, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same. Not as thick as the normal Yeti, and the yeast doesnít add much. Still a really good beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is fruity and roasted with malt and coffee. The appearance is almost black with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth but a bit thin. Overall this is an interesting beer but not great.

strong flavor with an emphasis on dark malts, roasted chocolate malt. the hops are really bitter which will give an astringent. really dark ad really potent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chocolate syrup and molasses. Black pour, medium brown head, minimal lacing. Delightfully creamy mouthfeel. Bakersí chocolate, plum skins, and prune flavor. Charred oak on the finish. Complex, but not as much compared to the other Yeti treatments. The texture, however, is wonderful.
