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 doesn’t add much. Still a really good beer.

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.

Chocolate syrup and molasses. Black pour, medium brown head, minimal lacing. Delightfully creamy mouthfeel. Bakers’ 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 it’s like twice the price of the regular Yeti when it seems the yeast is the only difference.
