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.

My GF ordered this on tap and asked me to try it and I pretty much drank all of her beer (I bought her another one though, I;m not a monster.) Pours dark chocolate color with a tan head that hangs around. Smells wonderful. Chocolate, coffee with a hint of sweetness. Tastes- This is where the beer stands out. A lot of chocolate stouts are overly bitter and taste more like coffee than chocolate. This beer brings just the right amount of sweetness. Chocolate and coffee are right up front but there is a hint of vanilla that adds just the right amount of sweetness. Supposedly there is some cayenne powder in there but I didnít get it which is fine by me. Mouthfeel- Smooth and thick. Overall- Best chocolate stout Iíve had and one of the best stouts Iíve had in general. Try it if you see it and you will be pleased.

Akin to a gourmet chocolate is an accurate description; also a bit astringent. Chewy. I enjoyed it more with liverwurst and spicy jalapeno mustard. Not on par with other Yeti stouts.

Pours a dark as night black/brown from a bottle, rich brown head with some lacing. Dark chocolate aroma has a hint of licorice when warm, flavor is a bitter chocolate with notes of vanilla and caramel. Very good beer.

I realized a while back I had not yet rated what is probably my favorite Yeti so a great excuse to pick one up. Tons of bittersweet chocolate, of course, plus vanilla and roasty goodness. Just enough cayenne to let you know itís there but of course Iíd love three times as much in there.

Pours a dark brown to motor oil black with a thick foamy tan head. Thick, rich, and creamy texture. Roasted malt taste but not as much chocolate or oak as I expected. Did not really enjoy this as much as the plain Yeti.

The chocolate is very present with a touch of wood finished. Well balanced and dense bodied. Heats up your throat.

Dark, almost black, with a disappointing thin head. Chocolate, coffee and roasty aromas, though with a too apparent alcohol in the nose. Full bodied, creamy with rich chocolate, coffee and roasty flavors . Heavy bitterness with a slight and refreshing tartness. Rather fizzy for a stout but make this heavy and rich brew even more enjoyable. Long finish with bitter coffee and cocoa tones as the dominating components.
