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.

Foil covered pry off bomber pours nice and dark with mocha head. The aroma offers up bold buttery dark chocolate fudge, dark roasted malts, some burnt malts and a rich chocolate milk shake, wow! The taste does not disappoint with chocolate, fudge brownie, dark roasted malts and sliding into a modest level of burnt malt notes. Swimming around the rich maltiness are light notes of Belgian yeasty spices. This stays yummy and rich right into the finish. It is strange that itís like twice the price of the regular Yeti when it seems the yeast is the only difference.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22, capped and foiled. Black with a dense and creamy tan head that falls away quickly. Loose spotty lacing. Big chocolate and spice nose, very integrated, like a deluxe gourmet chocolate bar thatís supposed to be that way. Thick creamy body, almost sticky but not quite. Chocolate, coffee, and dark roasty spices on the mid palate. Very convincing big stout. Could easily be a go-to big dark beer when the price is appealing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Pours a nearly impenetrable black color with a finger of white head.
S: Heavy on the roasted malt aromas with lots of chocolate and vanilla. There is some licorice and burnt sugar, too. I donít really get all that much "Belgian" character from it. Mostly just the intense stout aroma.
T: Not much difference on the flavor. Sweeter than I seem to remember the other Yeti variants being. Lots of dark chocolate and molasses with a bit of licorice. There is a good bit of vanilla, a mild spice, and maybe some yeast.
M: Medium to full in body with a medium carbonation.
O: A nice beer, though not overtly "Belgian".
