Very similar to the regular yeti incarnations. Black pour with a thin tan head. Tons of chocolate and coffee in the nose with hints of caramel and earthy cream. The flavor holds a very slight brett sournes that is largely overpowered by the complex dark malt arrangement. Huge thick mouthfeel with a sticky finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9400) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Boulder Sour Fest 2010. Pours opaque with a medium-low fizzy tan head, some retention. Aroma is heavy malt, oak, brettanomyces, hops, and alcohol with notes of tar and licorice. Flavor is alcohol, brettanomyces, roasted malt, caramel, and huge hops. Full bodied, creamy texture with a lingering sweetness.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Draught from Avery Sour Fest. Black with no head. Aroma is still rich dark chocolate and beautiful lighter coffee but also espresso, wet leather, all fairly strong. Taste is woodier with sour cherry or apple with still tons of coco powder. As beer warms, coco and booze becomes more apparent.

Jblauvs (1339) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Black pour, Aroma is very similar to regular Yeti, Chalky chocolate, some roasty bitterness, a bit of brett peeks its head through, but not much. Mouthfeel is nice a creamy, flavor is like regular Yeti mixed with some light chalky brett and a bit of sour milk. sounds unappealing but I actually quite enjoyed it.

Dark black with tan head. Aroma is mild roast and mushrooms. Taste is less roasty and hoppy then regular Yeti. Very smooth silky texture.

JoeMcPhee (8312) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
NOTF 2010. Deep black pour with a tight head. The nose is intense and a little bit cocoaish. Tarry and earthy. Itís soft and a little bit of the heavy roastiness has been rounded off - a little bit of soft earthiness. Lightly herbal and pretty nice.

Ratman197 (9454) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2010
On tap at Avery Sour Fest poured a nearly opaque dark brown with a lingering ring of brown foam. Aromas of leather, barnyard, bitter chocolate and light coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bitter chocolate, leather, barnyard funk and light coffee with a smooth dry lingering funky chocolate finish.

Interesting beer. Iím a huge Yeti fan so had to try this. Pours a dark black with a bit thinner body and translucent edges than the normal. Dark thin oily head that quickly fades. Aroma is very much the same dark roasted malts but some sour notes come through with warmth and air. Hits like a normal yeti up front with sweet malt and dark chocolate but this is wiped away in very short order by a medium tart acidity. More of a novelty thing for me...was good with a mushroom and sausage pizza with white sauce.
