3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

From a bottle at SB&WF. Black with medium beige/brown head. Strong dark chocolate aroma, with oak, vanilla, and some coffee. Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation. Well balanced, dry finish. Good, but not up to the level of the ordinary Yeti.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle - pours thick, dark black with foamy tan head; just a beauty as the norm for the all yeti brews; sweet, bitter chocolate, creamy milk and choco butter; not over the top in chocolate, but more of a chocolate cookies or cream pie kind of flavor; very rich and decedent with the oaking influence; a little bitter at the finish, but smooth out with the sweetness; hard to tell which yeti is my fav!!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque black on the pour with dark brown head that retians well and leaves nice lace. Nose is rich with nougat and dark chocolate. Palate is big on roasty/chocolatey flavors, with a citrusy hop flavor that cuts through the roasty flavors too much for me. I don’t like fruit in my chocolate desserts - just give me the chocolate, fudge, whatever. Here the citrusy hops come through too much and influence the overall flavor away from being a sweet dessert stout.
