From a bottle at SB&WF. Black with medium beige/brown head. Strong dark chocolate aroma, with oak, vanilla, and some coffee. Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation. Well balanced, dry finish. Good, but not up to the level of the ordinary Yeti.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle - pours thick, dark black with foamy tan head; just a beauty as the norm for the all yeti brews; sweet, bitter chocolate, creamy milk and choco butter; not over the top in chocolate, but more of a chocolate cookies or cream pie kind of flavor; very rich and decedent with the oaking influence; a little bitter at the finish, but smooth out with the sweetness; hard to tell which yeti is my fav!!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque black on the pour with dark brown head that retians well and leaves nice lace. Nose is rich with nougat and dark chocolate. Palate is big on roasty/chocolatey flavors, with a citrusy hop flavor that cuts through the roasty flavors too much for me. I don’t like fruit in my chocolate desserts - just give me the chocolate, fudge, whatever. Here the citrusy hops come through too much and influence the overall flavor away from being a sweet dessert stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber- pours inky black and given a vigorous pour into a Duvel glass- a thick three finger mocha head. Lacing is quite good. Nose- milk chocolate, nuts, and anise. Taste- chocolate forward- mix of dark and milk chocolate. Not a ton of roast. Vanilla and hops come through towards the finish. Finish is fairly bitter from the hops and oak and some alcohol heat.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz - Aroma is big with chocolate, cocoa, sawdust, vanilla and roasted dark malts. Flavor is a very strong version of aroma with an alcohol bite. It lingers in the mouth with oak, vanilla and a big chocolate finish. Palate is creamy, dry and soft. This 22oz of chocolately goodness and I spent quite a while together and it was worth every minute. A great brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2009 BPW #12
Sampled from 22oz bottle courtesy of Andy. Appearance is a rich chocolaty brown with a chocolate moose head. Nose is chocolate and roasted malt. Not the best notes on this beer as the night was late so I picked up another bottle to update this rating better then “chocolaty”.
Resampled 11/28/09. Served from a 22 oz bottle from Indy. Appearance is a rich chocolate brown with a large dense cream brown head. The aromas are full of chocolate, alcohol, and a nice barrel undertone. The flavors start with rich chocolate milk flavors and creaminess. The barrel tones build on the tongue nicely but are very rounded. There is a little musky note in there that I could do without. The wood from the barrels really drys out the beer. The taste enjoyment comes and goes for me. Not on the top of my Yeti list but nice.
