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.

Black with a thick tan head. Fruit nose with some milk chocolate. Heavy chocolate flavor that comes and goes through the other elements: fruit, hints of roasted malt, some alcohol. Empty, milky finish that has some minor burnt malt lingering about. The flavor has some subtlety, but there isnít enough here to separate from others.

The beer pours black, with no highlights when it is held up to the light. The head is not very large, but what head is there is brown in color. The smell is roasted malt, with chocolate in the aroma as well. The taste is of milk chocolate with some hints of vanilla which I am assuming come from the oak. As dark as this beer is, it is not near as thick as other stouts like Ten Fidy, which adds to its drinkability. There is no alcohol detectable in the flavor, but you do get an alcohol warming sensation even though you cannot taste the alcohol. This stout goes down so easy that I could see the alcohol sneaking up on you in a bad way if you werenít careful.

Pitch black with a small head, very imperial stoutish.. Aroma is moderately complex, with roasty chocolate notes dominating... Very flavorful, with the roasted bitter chocolate notes, creamy body, medium full bodied.. very very good, but i prefer the oak aged and the espresso to this version... The chocolate came on a bit too strong..

Pure black color with a nice and thick dark brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, sweeter malts, cocoa, and some vanilla. Flavor is of chocolate, malts, and oak. Has a nice chocolaty and oak aftertaste. Iím so happy to finally have had this one.

Pours a very dark oil like black that you have no hope of seeing through. I get chocolate, lots of the roasted malts of course, coffee along with some toffee in there as well. Wow! Full bodied beer. I think what I like most about this one is that the chocolate is not so upfront like some other chocolate stouts I have had. Not so upfront on the nose with chocolate like you might think. Everything seems to meld together very well in how the flavors hit your palate like every single flavor just knows what it is supposed to do. Great lacing of the glass and a nice takeoff from the regular yeti imperial stout.

clingman71 (297) - Centerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Aroma of chocolate dominates, along with vanilla and a little woody mustiness. Flavor is big chocolate, roasted grains, but almost overdone with the chocolate, a little too sweet. Iíd love to blend a chocolate yeti with the regular oak aged yeti to tone down the sweetness a bit. I didnít really notice the cayenne at first, but as this beer warms itís presence grows and certainly affects the flavor and mouthfeel. Once warm, the finish becomes spicy. This beer is very good, and close to being excellent in my opinion.

Bomber. As always, an excellent offering, but amp those hops back up and forget the coco. I mean the chocolate definitely adds a different flair making wood and alcohol more prevalent. Chocolate also adds earthier presence in nose. I mean its Yeti.

carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Pours black w thin tan head. Aroma is sweet cocoa and roasted malt. Mouthful is a smooth cocoa delight that finishes with a lttle bite, maybe that cayanne. The bite in the finish is a perfect complement to this great brew.

Bomber I picked up in Dallas, and shared at Strong Ale 2009. Pours black with a tan head. Nose is sweet with a nice chocolate edge. Taste is sweet and full of chocolate, very nice, not that I doubted it.
