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.

Nice dark pour. Lightly spiced nose in the giddy chocolate covered way. Excellent smooth body, light carbonation, heavy in the spiced coffee, smooth in the silkier chocolate flavors. Epic bitter coffee and spicy finish. Quite a big hit with the ABV but it honestly compliments this beverage. Dank!

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Pours with a nice, thick brown head. The nose is slightly spicy (hot spicy), with rum, vanilla, bourbon, and brussels sprouts. Kind of sloppy. In the mouth, it is bright up front, carbonic, fading into and slow, syrupy midbody and rough aftertaste—notes of caramel, marshmallow, carbonic acid, maple syrup. A bit harsh overall.

No no no, ratings too low. Beautiful pour. Black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast malt, vanilla, whiskey. Flavor is similar with a very dry hoppy finish that begs for more. You have more and fall on the floor.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle at ChrisO’s Back in the UK tasting, 22nd May 2010. Nearly pure black. Tons of oak and chocolate with a chilli burn at the back of the throat. Very intense and rather nice (in small measures).

6/18/10. Bomber into a snifter. The pour is jet, opaque black with a huge, creamy, thick, oily brown head that looks speckled with cocoa powder. The aroma is dark chocolate powder with a hint of sour and a good roasty kick. The flavor starts sweet and chocolatey, hints at a touch of sour, and finishes huge and roasty bitter. A nice spectrum and tingles spiciness at the very end and makes for a pretty yummy experience.

blipp (8162) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Bottle. Bottled May 2010, imbibed at just over 1 month old. Pours black with a thin brown head. Light roasty aroma with some piney hops and lighter notes of semi-sweet chocolate. The flavor has a good balance of roasted malts and piney hops, and lighter chocolate notes. Some coffee comes out as it warms. Really good. I’d imagine that in a few months the hop profile with subside, allowing the chocolate to come more to the forefront.

Vintage: 2009 Served from tap into an imperial pint. Pours a deep black with a tan one finger head that subsides to minimal. Maintains excellent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of malt and chocolate. The flavor was of malt, coffee, and a chocolate followthrough. It had a medium feel on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this is by far the best Yeti I have had. I will compare it to a 2010 bottle I have in the fridge right now in the near future for a comparison. This one will be hard to top though...

22oz bottle. Pours black with a a nice brown head. Nose is roasty, chocolate, coffee, some hops and spices as well. Flavor is roasty malts, chocolate, raisin, and a hint of chilli. Finish is nice and roasty with the chilli flavor lingering. Full bodied and an awesome beer.

Traveled to Orlando to get this one at Knightly Spirits and thank god I did. The pour out of the bottle was just super sexy. Super dark with a brownish foam head. The aroma was oaky, with touches of roasted nuts. It was incredibly smooth and easy to drink. It also had a nice bitterness to it that hits you right on the back of the jaw.
