3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... Black with a medium mocha head, really nice retention... Super chocolate nose, light bitter cocoa nibs, prunes, and a spicy star anise note, solid... Tastes like a fancy chocolate bar laced with spices, tons more star anise, light yeast, tons of chocolate, great texture... Good but one of my least favorite yeti

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Solid black with a tan head. Nose is lighter-probably because the beer is a bit cold. Coffee and maltiness come out as it warms.Taste has a sweetness and slight tanginess with the typical Yeti maltiness and coffee.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
8/2/11. On tap. Opaque black pour with a nice creamy brown head that sticks and laces a ton. Rich aroma of chocolate, coffee, and definite yeast spiciness. Rich malty chocolate flavor with a hint of roast and definite fruity sweetness that I can only assume is from the yeast. Interesting and tasty!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Argonaut. Pours opaque black with a big dark mocha head that fades to a pale beige as it collapses, leaving streaky drippy lacing. Aroma is sketchy, with good notes of roasted nuts, coffee, and chocolate stomped on by some strange boozy Belgo action. Flavors are similarly wonky, with all of the good bits of Yeti one would expect with an infectious Brett-like character appearing near the finish that washes away the chocolatey goodness and introduces thin, dry peppery spice. Not exactly Yeti quality.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours inky black with a nice chestnut brown head. Nose is roasty with notes of burnt popcorn and toast. Slightly rusty/metallic with some fruit skins. Roasty flavor with some cacao and chocolate and notes of burnt toast. Rich and velvety mouthfeel. From what I can tell the Belgian aspect of this comes through more in the palate and interaction with the dark grains as opposed to any ester/phenol presence.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pour is deep black with a nice tan head, good retention/some lacing. Aroma is powdered sugar, dark fruits, some light chocolate/coffee but the roast is very muted. Taste is rich chocolate initially but finish is thin and watery. Palate is a bit astringent. I’d go for espresso yeti.
