4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Great Divide tasting room in Denver. Pours a pitch black body with a thick, dense, creamy mocha colored head that dissipates slowly and remains nicely laced. Big aroma of mild espresso coffee as well as the rest of the complexities of the other Yetiís. Lots of bittersweet dark chocolate, wood, big bold citrusy hops, and even a little vanilla as it warms up. Flavor is very similar and well balanced. Initially chocolatey and woody before transitioning smoothly to a big roasted coffee linger. More of those bold citrus hops creep in as well. Leaves a bit of oaky-vanilla sweetness in the aftertaste that lingers for quite awhile. Palate is velvety smooth and medium to light bodied. Very sessionable. Overall, this easily lives up to the Yeti name. Not sure if I like this more than the other two, but its pretty good nonetheless. Very happy to have tried this at Great Divideís tasting room.

Pours black with tan head... Very complex stout with a strong coffee aroma.... Espresso flavor hits you hard initially, but as the sip lingers, notes of oak can be appreciated with a nice dark chocolate finish... Very drinkable stout... Worth the money...

pitch black with large tan head. moderate carbonation. nose of coffee and even some hops. flavor initially strong of coffee, which mellows to have some hints of vanilla and oak, before a brief pleasant hop flavor presence followed by an amazing bitter chocolate flavor that lingers on your palate far after completion of the sip. an amazing beer, so flavorful and balanced. perfection

400th rating! Growler, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing! Pours a deep black with a bubbly tan head that fades to a ring. Aroma of toasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and wood. Rich taste, a lot of coffee, with chocolate, a bit nutty, and toasted malt. Lingering rich burnt coffee flavors. Wonderful.

Draught at Boulder Strong Ale Festival. Pours opaque with a spare, rocky, dark brown head, diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (coffee, toasted grain), average hop (perfume), heavy yeast (leather) with notes of prune, wood, and dates. Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

Start out with an incredible beer and add incredible coffee, and thatís what you have here. Very, very rich and roasty impy with a heavy sweetness and a strong bitterness to boot. Coffee and espresso flavors and aromas are very bold and aromatic. Quite a bit of dark chocolate, too. So really itís a wonderful blend of three things I love: stout, coffee and chocolate. Awesome stuff.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. I am a big fan of the Yeti lineup. This one needs a bit of time to mellow. Pours real thick and black, with a dark brown, creamy head. Glass coating and opaque in its darkness. Aroma is strong espresso, strong chocolate, coffee, and strong citrus and pine hops that are quite strong for what I was expecting. Taste: wow, tons of hops. They stick out like a sore thumb, and need to mellow quite a bit. Needs some age. Coffee is nice and strong, and the chocolate molds everything together well. Super syrupy mouthfeel (Yeti trademark), light bubbles.
