COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. A Yeti for summer? Hell yes.

JBPortland (925) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 15, 2014
22oz bottle pours oily brown black with 2 finger foamy head. Nose is straight boozy brownie batter and dusty burnt chocoalte sauce, and earthy dark fruit and dirt note. Taste is a touch thinner than expected, boozy brownie and cake, some vanilla cream. Finish is sticky, sweet but not overly-so, chocolate booze and dusty dark cocoa nibs. Dessert!

"the most unique, but possibly my least favorite Yeti. I LOVE the Espresso, Barreled, & Regular, and really like the Oak and now Chocolate. If the hops are toned down its hard to tell. Bitterness from cocoa nibs is still bitter, and this fits the bill. chocolate more present in the flavor than the aroma, and the touch of cayenne in the finish is cool. i think i wanted a tiny bit less bitterness and a touch more decadent chocolate, but this was still quite good. For my money, though, regular ol Yeti is better, and cheaper. Bottled 6-15-09"

The aroma of chocolate. Heavy taste of dark chocolate, tobacco, tar and dark coffee. Incredibly heavy bitterness in the aftertaste and really do not want to disappear from the mouth. Very hard to judge this beer. But to me it feels like a medium beer. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle. 2013 vintage. Thick motor oil pour, stuff looks like chewy molasses, with a beautiful layer milk chocolate head, this stuff looks amazing in a glass. Aroma, sweet Jesus, the chocolate jumps out at you for sure, roasted malts, a hint spice, fuck yea. Taste is milk chocolate, thick mouthfeel, roasted malts, light spice, silky smooth finish with a bitter aftertaste that lingers. Well its damn good, rich, smooth, balanced, the chocolate adds but doesnt dominate. Very very good.
