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.

At Fork. Some oak flavor but didn’t taste like you were chewing on wood. Nice chocolate and liquor soaked dried fruits. The cayenne almost sort of makes the beer less heavy. Smooth and more on the mellow side. Nice. Serving: Tap

Pours dark brown, minimal head. Minimal aroma. Very dry. Lots of oak and dark bakers’ chocolate. Some coffee, and a bitter finish.

As the name implies, it's a lot like yeti, which is a good thing, but with more chocolate, which wasn't really an improvement in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, this is a great beer, but I just think the original Yeti is better.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is a little roasty, alcohol evident in the nose. Jet black, and opaque with nice light brown head that quickly dissipates. Wonderful taste! A touch sweet. Notice the wood aging, but it’s not in your face and is very nicely balanced. I love how all of the flavors combine perfectly. Notice the cayenne in just a touch of heat and tingling in aftertaste. Overall, a terrific imperial stout!

Pitch black. Like coffee. Brown head. Aroma of chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Not that sweet. More bitterness. Full body. Smooth.

TXBadger (1512) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Pours a thinner viscosity, but still very black and plenty of khaki head. Chocolate, oak, and vanilla on the nose; follows onto the palate. A very nice roasted malt note on the finish with the rest of the previously listed notes. Good flavors, but a bit thin.

22 oz bottle. Pours black with paper thin head. Chocolate and cocoa shine, peppers are just barely noticeable and a warm welcome.

@ Beer tasting, Havregatan 141206. Roasted malty and dark chocolate with some light fruity notes, medium to full body with an oily texture. The finish is roasted with chocolate.

Bottle. Dark chocolate on all levels, a little dry across the palate, just a hint of booze, it tastes like I imagine it?s like to lick a oak tree. Aromas ate molasses, cocoa, oak, dates, booze, smoke, a little hoppyness and ash at the end.

Favorite chocolate beer I’ve had to date. Dark black with a purple head. Taste slightly bitter dark chocolate with a sweet, pleasant finish.

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2014
The aroma is pleasant from chocolate and vanilla, roasted malts and all the other classic smells you know should be in a good imperial stout. The taste is coffee, burnt malts and a lingering bitterness from the dark chocolate. I could have enjoyed a little more oak notes than I did, and I don’t catch any of the cayenne that is supposedly in this one? But... it is very good stuff, no doubt.
