4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is dark roasted malts and hints of chocolate. Pours a rich black with a dark tan head and nice lacing. Taste is overall light bitter. Touches of vanilla up front give way to chocolate with dark roasted malt and coffee on the backside. Not as bitter as regular Yeti - somewhat smoothed out. Full bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall, very drinkable and enjoyable.

Big beer. So much flavor. Hops are very noticable but small enough to not hide the flavor.

On draft. Aroma of loamy, oaky earth. Flavors of weak espresso, earthy mushrooms and... truffles? Biggest flavor is what I imagine oak would taste like. Delightful.
