4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I wanted to be tough on this beer, but I feel like I can’t go any lower than a 4.2 without being dishonest. It’s a great beer. An amazing beer, even.
But I was slightly disappointed, because in my opinion the regular Yeti is basically the perfect beer. This one is a bit mellower, with quite a bit of vanilla - not just a hint, but a LOT of vanilla. I think that makes it taste a little strange, kind of like a cross between the regular Yeti and a British sweet stout or milk stout. It’s certainly more sophisticated than it’s older brother... but does a Yeti really need to be sophisticated?

Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours VERY dark, moderate amount of tan head. Aroma yeast chocolate, french oak. Coffee, too. Nice. Body is rich, lively, hitting hard with oaky notes, coffee as well. Really opens up at end, blending sweetness, wood and hops. Yum!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
A - Pours completely opaque. A dark chocolate brown froth sparkles in the light. Forms nice lacing.
S - Dry treated wood, dark chocolate, earthy roasted malt, dry tobacco, hints of vanilla that seems sharpened from the alcohol.
T - Semi-sweet cocoa powder, intense roasted malts. The moderate oak flavor blends with the cocoa to create a strange beach nut type of flavor. Lacquer thinner. The hops and alcohol band together and form an astringent bitterness on the finish.
M - Chewy but smooth, if that makes any sense. A bit hot.
Well I was slightly disappointed by this one. I probably should have let this mellow out. The oak seemed a bit overwhelming and the solvent presence was strong. Everything seemed to be battling to get ahead of one another. I loved the original Yeti.
I might buy another bottle and age it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber bottle. Aroma is dark malt and some sweetness with some alcohol. The appearance is black with a little tan head and a little lacing. Tastes stays dark through out while some hops kick in after the sweet of the malt fades. Some dry oak flavor at the end. The palate is dry and dark. Overall, this is a good beer. Will buy again. Well done.

Have a feeling that I drink a slightly too young Yeti. Shall save a bottle and store any year to compare. The sweetness is a bit too obvious, but it highlighted hoppy aftertaste raises impression.
