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 (29174) - 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.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, 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

omhper (19239) - 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.

Opaque black beer. Light airy palate. Unsweet chocolate straight off, quickly caught up by warming spicy pepper. The unsweet chocolate is rounded off by some oak but the oak imparts no vanilla sweetness. Finishes with more chocolate and heat! The heat lasts a looooong time! Unusual tasty beer, could do with backing off the cayenne a bit.

fiulijn (14350) - 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.
