4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2008 Great beer from a local brewery, if you get the chance, take the tour. The beer if you can call it that was very dark, and smelled strong of espresso, the flavor was unmistakeable, and almost covered the higher abv. Only able though to find it on tap thus far even with in Denver area. A very unique version of yeti that has only a mild similarity.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival. Very black, creamy brownish head. Pungent aroma of coffee and vanilla. Sweet and full bodied with dense rounded mouthfeel. Massive, yet not overly assaulting. Warming and tarry with vanilla and licorice to got with the coffee. Long salty bitterness. Like having everything at once. Surprisingly to me it works very well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft sample at brewery Tap Room, Denver, CO, 8/12/08. Pours black with cherry hues, tan head. Big nose of coffee, bourbon, oak, caramel, and mild fruit. Taste is all coffee up front, taken over by roasted malt and a slight bourbon flavor with mild astringency and lots of bitter. Mild chocolate and caramel in the after. Very nice coffee stout.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pitch black with a big thick mocha head that lingers throughout leaving massive sticky lacing around the glass. This brew looks gorgeous.
Smell is big, just like the regular OAY with semi-sweet dark chocolate and roasted malts. The espresso is evident in the smell as well and the oak is a little more subdued than in the regular version.
Big roasted malt flavor up front which gives way to the sweetness of the dark chocolate and fresh ground espresso. The oak is a bit more evident than in the smell but is pretty subdued.
Mouthfeel is extremely creamy and smooth with moderate carbonation and coats your mouth with the sweet malty chocolate and coffee goodness.
This is one helluva big beer. Itís definitely a sipper and like a great dessert, one for savoring slowly. Highly recommended.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the brewery. Pours dark black with a fantastic brown head so fluffy you could rest your head on it. The same characteristic of the Yeti is there, along with the coffee. The espresso is not subtle and dominates the favor.

the yeti is a chameleon, sometimes hidden behind the hop vines, iíve caught glimpses through the oaks, iíve even seen it romping in the cherry trees but wasnít able to document that one, now it is among the coffee fields. the nose is strong roast coffee, rich burnt in a good way more chocolate in the nose than previous incarnations, a bit of fudg. i was smacked by the coffee first then the chocolate some nice cherry hints melt in there nicely and they get stronger as this goes. alcohol is incredibly well hidden. roastburnt flavors are strong & the vanilla mixes in only at the finish to make a fantastic combination with the espresso. another yeti worth hunting for.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Maxís. Thick black pour with a dark tan head. Looked just wonderful as the regular yeti. Lots of coffee on the aroma. Thatís to be expected...but this was more of a stale coffee. Not the type of coffee I like to drink. Some spice, maybe cinnamon, and lots of cream as well. Lots of stale coffee and alcohol flavor. Thatís about it. This was a very disappointing beer. I love espresso and I love oak aged yeti, but this seemed to combine the worst parts of both.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Maxís. Pours a very dark, chocolate brown color; medium brown head with lacing that coats the glass. Loads of coffee and coffee grounds in the aroma; bitter chocolate, espresso, some oak chips; a bit overbearing, and the coffee character isnít so hot; coffee grounds, mostly. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: slightly acidic coffee grounds, espresso chalkiness, bitter chocolate and dried dark fruits; lightly carbonated, and slightly velvety in the mouth; but the coffee just overwhelms an otherwise great beer underneath. Lengthy finish: bitter coffee and dark chocolate; a touch chalky.
