4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is heavy and dark chocolate notes combined with some licorice and wet wood. The taste is like the regular Yeti’s long lost big brother coming home from a trip in the woods, with all kinds of stuff in the fur after wading through cold wooden creeks, tree branches and moist forest vegetation. Roasted but rounded and heavy malts, coffee, licorice. In the aftertaste the sweetness takes over more, but there’s also a kind of lingering bitterness in the background.

We had mixed feelings on this beer that cost around $9. Part of the reason was it was so unique.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Jet black with smallish tan head. Huge roasted aroma, slightly smoky or charred, some dark forest floor notes, chinese mushroom soy and a deep, dark fruitiness. Full bodied palate, big malty body, some sweetness and a rather big bitterness towards the long finish.

Aroma is coffee, dark malts and a strong hint of acidity. The flavor is dark malts, coffee, mild dark fruit, chocolate and a mix of acidity and very slight sourness in the finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at share, big dark head, fades. Aroma coffee, cocoa, mineral, vanilla, cookies, plum, molasses. Taste coffee, tobacco, cocoa, anise, molasses, vanilla, salty, spice, oak. finish is dry, roasty and bitter coffee, anise and astringent oak. Palate is rich and thick, carbonation nicely subdued. This is quite good, but just a bit astringent from the oak I think.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great complex aroma of oak, tobacco, leather, roasted malts, coffee with cream, black licorice, dark chocolate and slight booze. That’s a lot in one sniff. Interestingly, the aroma is not hoppy at all. Pitch black in color with a moderate amount of dark tan foam. Just beautiful. Taste is roasty with tons of oak and has an ever so slight burn at the end. Subsequent tastes uncover a god amount of hops, and a soy sauce flavor. Palate is outstanding. Just thick enough, just silky enough. Very well made. This would be a good cigar beer.
