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.

ROBC3366 (612) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Dark dark black pour with a thick dark brown head. Aroma is strong dark chocolate, a hint of oak, and a decent west coast hop profile at the end. Heavy cream body. Oak is far more prominent in the flavor. Mild alcohol burn in the chest but nothing in the flavor. Dark chocolate again is very strong. Hops are mild to unnoticeable. Very sweet smooth finish full of chocolate ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

curepute (139) - New York, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Used engine oil color with a tan head. Nose of booze, bitter chocolate, roasted malts. Taste is rich and deep, chocolate bitterness come through nicely, all sorts of burnt molasses flavors. Then the kick if spice arrives and finishes bitter and boozy.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Oily black, medium tan head. Molasses, ripe dark fruit, coffee, rum, dark chocolate. Nice heat from the chillies. Overall a very nice IS, when it warmed a little it really opened up, very rich and complex.

Aroma: chocolate, sweet, more like milk choc, than dark choc. Malt. Appearance: dark black, big tan head. Very pretty. Taste: chocolate, wood, ash, Feel: low carbonation, pasty finish. Very nice , the extra sweetness probably knocks this down a few pegs compared to the other yetiís Iíve tried, but this is still very good.

The smell and pour are perfect! The front has a nice sweet only for a second taste. The nibs are present from the start. I love all the layers up to when the nice oak flavors reach out towards the back of my mouth, then it happens... It finishes way to harsh. The pepper at the finish over shines all the great tastes that are happening thus far, ruining what would have been a very enjoyable aged imperial stout. The pepper brings forward the alcohol taste to abruptly. If you like a beer with lots of good layers this beer definitely succeeds. I would even recommend you give it a go if your going to share a bottle with a few friends, as small pours would have been ideal for this beer. Cheers

Berard (295) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours like used motor oil with thick brown head that lingers. Chocolatey coffee aroma over light carbonation. Sweet start but strong, in your face bitter finish. Milkshake thick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
