3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is mellow, but full and warm, with earthy notes of wood and smoke followed by milk chocolate and vanilla. The third wave of aromas comes through with a light fruity undertone. The beer pours like motor oil. It’s dark and opaque with a dark espresso colored, dense, small bubble that retains a thin fuzzy surface, a medium thick ring, and tons of sticky, dense, tight lace. The beer is a medium high sweet up front with a medium high bitter finish. The chewy texture is complemented by a fuzzy carbonation. The full, smoked malt body contains flavors of milk chocolate, cacao, and light fruit initially, then it finishes syrupy smooth, with a smoked quality, vanilla, wood. The aftertaste is dry and lightly astringent; a bit ashy with a light licorice flavor and dry resin quality. It tries to clean up, but there’s a distinct cigar tobacco flavor that dominates and lingers.

SB Linköping repslagargatan, flaska. Kolsvart med mörkbrunt skum. Arom som vanlig Yeti. Choklad kakao ek i eftersmaken. Fint beska lätt bitter i tonen. Tjock och len maltig på tungan. Ligger fint på läppen.

Second worst in compaing Espresso, Chocolate, Oatmeal, Oak aged & Normal, right after Oatmeal. Vanilla, smoke, lighter in both mouthfeel and toasted malts, a bit thinner, and just feels like a bit less tasty.

Bottled 09/20/14. Pours pitch black (very dark) with a small tan head. Aroma is chocolate, oak, some coffee, surprisingly boozy Aroma. Flavor is rich dark chocolate, and a woody smoky finish. Longer Bitter coffee finish lingers thereafter. As it warms the smoky elements of the oak become more prominent. Fantastic. So good.

A bit more powerful than an ordinary yeti. Smoke, very dark and bitter chocolate. This one will probably reach 5 stars if you hide the next bottle for a couple of years!

Flaska från systemet - doftar som en vanlig yeti. Ekfatstonerna skiner igenom i eftersmaken. Silkeslen i munnen och försiktigt kolsyrad.

Nice. Very nice. I prefer the espresso variety in a head to head. But I cannot complain about this one.
