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.

Finished up a tasting recently with this brew. Ended up splitting the bottle three ways into snifters. The brew had a finger worth of dark coco colored head sitting on top of a black bodied brew. The head laced perfectly in the glass, it’s a beautiful stout. You get a great amount of coco nibs coming at you in the nose. I didn’t get much in the way of wood or barrel at all I even asked another Geek with me and he couldn’t pull any either I think the coco is just that strong. The flavor was perfect for a chocolate stout. This one is done right. The brew wasn’t sweet milk chocolaty but reminded me of a good piece of dark chocolate with a little pepper spice thrown in. It had a great mouthfeel to it thick and coating on the tongue. I enjoyed this brew and after a few sips I sparked a good cigar (JDN Antano dark Corojo) to go with it and this brew just worked perfectly with it. Serving type: bottle

Kind of leans a little towards a traditional Russian imperial stout. Aroma is lots of cocoa a little molasses some hops and black patent malt. Flavor is a lot like nose some sweetness a little Carbonic Tang. Bitter in the Finish. More of a sipping beer.

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 it’s there but of course I’d 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.
