I saved this bottle for several months to share with my brother for when he came into town. I must say that it lived up to my lofty expectations. Pours very black with an almost reddish looking, dark tan full head. Aroma is robust and impressive. It contains plenty of chocolate to go along with oak, licorice, vanilla, and coffee. The taste is very rich chocolate, and lots of it. Perhaps like chocolate cake, however with some coffee and vanilla mixed in. Despite how much chocolate is in here, somehow this really isn’t sweet. And that might be the best part of all with this one. Bitter, especially at the end. Full bodied, as one would expect, with an oily texture. Subtle, yet noticeable carbonation. Alcohol content hides itself well. This certainly doesn’t feel like its as strong as it is. Altogether, this has just about everything that you could hope for in a big beer. Being tasty, well made in every respect, potent without hitting hard, you will really impress most everyone by pouring one of these.
Score: 9 / 4 / 8 / 4 / 16

650 ml bottle, Feb 10 2016.
Black body, with a medium, dense, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of coffee beans, espresso, dark chocolate, toast, tobacco, some smoke.
Tastes similar, with more liquorice, some smoke, some dark fruits.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes dry, roasty-bitter, wooden, with lots of coffee again, cocoa powder, tobacco, liquorice.
Really tasty. Lots of lovely, distinctive coffee and overall more on the roasty-bitter side, while really well balanced. Preferred the regular a bit more maybe, while this is a great example of a Coffee Stout.
Backlog, niezły Ris. Fajny aromat kawowy, czuć słodycz. W smaku mocno wytrawne, słodycz znikoma. Niezłe piwo tstene (5) - SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2017 does not count
On a bottle from systembolaget, shared with my son. Black, thick, well balanced. The nose is moderate. Long, sweetish aftertaste with roasted malts.

Deep roasty aroma and coffee flavor.
Very nice carbonation and mouth feel for a 9.5% beer.

Pachnie ładnie, kawa, czekolada, pralinki i subtelne, zupełnie nie przeszkadzające alko. W smaku mocno wytrawne, ale to żadne zaskoczenie, po wcześniejszych przygodach z innym Yeti. Generalnie określiłbym to jako mocno palone espresso idące w kierunku dojrzałego orzecha włoskiego. brian.b (22) - - SEP 3, 2017
Really good Stout. Starts with a strong espresso flavor and ends fairly smooth. Overall a good Stout, but the finish had a little bitterness. Not much, but too much to be in the same class as other top tier stouts.
