3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours a dark brown with a thin dark tan head. Aroma of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla. Flavor of lots of roasted malt, roasted chocolate malt, light sweetness, light oat malts. Overall very roasted/bitter with very light sweetness. Pretty good, slightly heavy palate. It is tough to drink a lot of this beer.

Dark squid ink pour with a small caramel crown. Molasses, cocoa, brownie batter, oats, dark fruit, and vanilla shine in this one. Thick and coating. Pretty darn good!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Flanny’s in a snifter. Sweet nose of chocolate, some molasses, and grainy maltiness. Pours an inky black with a cardboard-colored head. Heavy roasted flavor of chocolate malt and coffee with traces of burnt molasses, biscuit, and a bit of flaky oatmeal. Residual raisiny sweetness is sort of hidden early, but the flavor really pops as the beer warms. Smooth texture with a sweet bite before a pleasantly dry finish. Not bad at all.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Milk chocolate and espresso aromas. Creamy dark chocolate covered dried fruit and oatmeal upfront turning to hot mocha in the lasting finish.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Good Dog. Poured pitch black with a nice brown foam. Not much aroma when cold. Pleasant mix of usual of Imperial Stout flavors plus some dark red fruit. The oats build the body up quite a bit. Bitter chocolate. French roast coffee. Raisins. Prunes. Burnt campfire marshmallows. Cherry cordials. Liquorice. Charcoal grill. Great flavors. Blends very well. The oats smooth out the rough edges and adds a creaminess missing from the other versions.

This one poured a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma was very dark roasted malt, earthy hops dark chocolate and mild booze. flavor was similar very roasted almost burnt but lighter than other ones of this brand . probably not quite as good as regular Yeti but worth trying .

22oz. bottle, Black pour with small tan head. Malty aromas with some coffee and chocolate. Heavy toast and roasted malts, some smoke in the background. Bitter chocolates, but lacks some sweetness. Little burn in the finish. Chewy. Its good, but straight foward, nothing that stands out.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
First Yeti in quite some time. Black pour with a thin brown head. Faded quickly. Aroma was lightly roasted malt, cocoa, sweet vanilla and char. Flavors were slightly sweet with lots of cocoa, touch of fruit, lightly bitter coffee like finish. Nice creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Incredibly smooth and drinkable. Need to revisit the other Yeti’s. This was was awesome.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at P house, pours black with beige head, small but somewhat lasting. Notes of raisin, barrel, chalk, chocolate, oats, coffee and grains. Smooth and full bodied, a tad sticky. Not bad but I prefer the espresso and reg version of this beer. A little too much heat.
