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.

omhper (20330) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2009
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Very black, small beige head. Chocolaty tarry nose. Fairly sweet with full body. Tarry chocolate cake with salt and whisky. Dense and concentrated. Resiny bitterness that grows, grows and grows getting inky with some chili heat. More gimmicky than balanced, but still tasty.

olsvammel (3701) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2009
It poured a pitch black liquid with a medium sized dark brown foam. It had a smell of chocolate, hops and coffey. Tasted of chokolate, oak, wood, smoke. It had a stingy mouthfeel. Complex. Very nice.

22oz bottle opened by DuffManSW. Rating #186. Dark black pour with a decent brown head. Nice light chocolate aroma, a little woody and overall very fragrant. Flavor was more chocolate, roasty and a little bitterness, another really good Yeti, not a bad one at all. 񡹶)

22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a dark brown color with a finger and a half thick tan head. Nice layered lacing. Aroma is light cocoa and herbal hops. Flavor is chocolate, roasted malt, and light oak and vanilla. Finish is slightly dry and roasty. Medium to full body. A very nice beer.

Nephilium (1445) - Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Nice chocolate and roast aroma, with a touch of cream in the back end. Pours an opaque black, with a thick dark tan head. The flavor is vanilla and cocoa, with a touch of alcohol burn. Thick and oily on the palate, don’t know if I’d be going towards this in the summer, but quite tasty on an autumn evening.

Gachupines (977) - USA - SEP 23, 2009
Black with a dark tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate and malt. Flavor is very strong dark chocolate with a little spiciness in the finish. Alcohol presence is strong and warming. Pleasant, but to be honest I prefer the non-chocolate Yeti.

Ungstrup (29989) - 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.

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.
