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.

Ungstrup (29950) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black with a brown head. The aroma is powerful with notes of alcohol, chocolate, wood, and cocoa. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, leading to a very roasted finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

madsberg (10480) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2009
Bottled. Almost pitch black coloured. Dense brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, cocoa, spice, alcohol and vague coffee. Flavour is full of chocolate, alcohol, pebber, caramel and light coffee. Medium bodied. Ends on a roasty chocolaty bitterness.

fiulijn (15378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2009
Black color; generous creamy head. Over the mild roasted malts, there is some nice hopping; sandy. It has an average body strength, with too much alcohol feeling, hot as if there were chili pepper, and some mixed caramel and chocolate flavor. The final is burning (I’m reading only after the rating that there is cayenne pepper). Strange.

Papsoe (25079) - Lyserødovre, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2009
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of bu11zeye. Pours an opaque black with a light brown head. Aroma of a little oak and chocolate. Medium body, distinct cocoa and hard roasted malts and a strange cardboard edge. Also a weird chili burn in the finish. Only a light malt bitterness. Not really a great Yeti. 220909

rlgk (11693) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2009
Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2009. Black with a very nice lasting dark head. Tar and licorice aroma, oaky and with some really well balanced chocolate notes. Dark chocolate flavor, tar, licorice, cocoa, dried fruits, milky notes, salty, some perfume. Long strong bitter salty finish with chocolate notes.

chandler0201 (647) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Dark pour with tiny tan head. Chocolate and coffee and slight caramel in aroma, vanilla and chocolate in flavor, drinks like a dark chocolate milkshake. Simply delicious.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Pours a dark brown with tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, booze, malts, some vanilla and oak. Similar taste, very sweet with a chocolate/vanilla combo and warm finish. Enjoy but my least favorite of the Oak Aged Yetis.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Pours a tan head with a dark brown body. Main aroma is roasted, dark bread malt with very faint notes of vanilla and cocoa. Flavor is dark bread, roasted malts, soy sauce. A little thin on the body but the cocoa and vanilla come through on the finish. Little hot.

Butters (3869) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Shared during some monday night football with curly, scottyp, and barrios. Sampled side by side with the regular, oak aged, and expresso versions.This one has a mild aroma, with a cocoa powder flavor that is verging on vegetal. Still pretty hot and boozy, but this is the youngest of the four. I think this is my least favorite of the lineup.
