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.

Bomber from Leukenís in Oldsmar. Pours dark brown/ black with a tan head. Nose is roast, oak, booze, vanilla, licorice, and earth. Flavor is earth, dark chocolate, cocoa, licorice, roast, slight barrel blending dry bits of cocoa. Medium-bodied and lingers with a dry barrel, chocolate, and boozy finish.

The aroma is very sweet with chocolate, burnt malt, molasses, and vanilla. The appearance is black with a foamy tan head. The flavor is like the aroma but also astringent in a bad way. The palate is smooth. Overall it smells nice but it does not taste that great.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Mahogany-hued obsidian. Thin and compact khaki foam. Complex but merely decent nose of ink, blueberry skin, grapefruit, prunes, tar, peppery alcohol, seared fudge, vanilla beans, black licorice and raw/sugary/newly cut oak. Carbonation is snug and firm on the palate. Relatively thin-bodied. Slickly plumlike, initially, with an oily espresso-laden body. Surge of alcohol and cocoa lend dryness while fusing with the fairly intense cayenne bite. Grapefruit-hop twang remains merely suggestive, thankfully, so as to not obscure the vibrant ink, fruity esters and gooey liquefied-black-licorice tingle. Pungent oak generates ample vanilla which harmonizes with the wafery pale malt notes. Cayenne-induced fervor highlights the deep-rooted charcoal as it steadily heightens in intensity. Sufficient nuance lends itself in the form of nuts, toffee and tobacco, though the malt isnít particularly deep or textural. Closes with grapefruit bathed in chocolate which is hushed by drying notes of cocoa, oak and smoky char. Oak perpetually lingers and pummels the lurking subtleties. Overall I find the oak overaggressive as well as excessively pungent, flabby and sugary (as is the case with Oaked Yeti). Regular Yeti lacks the bells and whistles, and remains my favorite of the bunch as it is a fairly clean and well-focused showcase of malt.

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Pours thick, oily, black with a booming dark caramel colored head that leaves behind a nice lacing as it dissipates. Aroma is sweet and mostly cocoa. The flavor is very diverse, the oak is instantly noticeable, followed by a mild chocolate and the unexpected and unique cayenne spiced finish. As I continue to drink this the cayenne intensifies, this beer should be called a mole stout. Great smooth and thick body, certainly an unique and interesting brew, not as good as the regular Oak Aged Yeti but worth a try.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle thanks to daknole: Pours a mostly opaque black with mahogany edges and a frothy, spotty-lacing beige head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and chocolate with some toasty oak and piny hops. Starts with a rich dark caramel and chocolate maltiness with some fresh oaky tang before a warming peppery finish. Iím particularly sensitive to the cayenne pepper which masked any lingering roast or dark chocolate flavors, but the effect seemed to fade as the beer warmed up. Overall pretty well made.

bp (810) - Queens, New York, USA - NOV 4, 2009
Bottle: pours a dark black with a thin tan head, aroma of coffee, chocolate, malt, oak, taste is bitter coffee, dark chocolate and spice (i guess from the cayenne), not bad but I think it could do without the cayenne.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2009
22oz bottle pours a dark black with a thin off white head. Chocolate, molasses, and roasted malts in the nose. As it warms up spices reveal themselves with an earthiness. Sweet chocolate molasses flavors with a sticky palate more of the earthiness and oakiness and that odd spice in the finish. The cayenne becomes strong and overbearing as this nears room temperature. Good beer, just overdone with the spice. My least favorite of the Yeti versions.

scoth (527) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Pours thick motor-oil brown, with a two-finger walnut-brown head, very fine and lasting lacing. Rich malty aromas of espresso, chocolate nibs, molasses, toast, oak and a little bit of grass. Full bodied, zesty, smooth, dry and warming. Dark chocolate, molasses, espresso, vanilla, and a slight accent of hot cayenne in the finish that builds as one drinks. Mildly dry and medium bitter throughout the palate.

Bottle - thanks oteyj. Pours thick black color with a huge, creamy milk chocolate colored head. Thick, weblike lacing. Sweet and chocolatey aroma, a little roast, and the bittersweet yeti hoppiness. Wonderfully smooth flavor is sweet and chocolate filled, light roast, and faint hops. Creamy mouthful. Lingering finish is smooth, chocolatey, and bittersweet. Very nice.
