Smoky and sweet aroma,. Poured a redish/black. Tasted toasted, but the flavor is not full and falls short of the aroma. Reminds me of a dry stout. Had at Denver tap room 7/21/12.
"Surprisingly maintains Yetis black as night appearance. Body is obviously significantly thinner, as is the aroma and flavor. Similar, just waaaaay lighter. Works slightly better in the nose than the flavor, which you can’t really analyze without including the light feel, which is the beers only fault. Cool to try, and a good food beer."

Pour on tap at Parry’s Pizza, dark brownish red pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of roast, some coffee, hints of earth, slight milk notes in there, overall pretty nice but a bit thin, almost to be expected. Taste is a mix of sweet chocolate, coffee, roast and toffee notes, hints of earth, slight spice, hints of cracker, finishing fairly bitter, slightly dry. Pretty nice. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2012
On tap at the brewery for the pilot system tap takeover. I overheard one of the staff describing this as a small beer so maybe they use second runnings from Yeti? Dark black, looks like a stout so no surprise there. Aroma is quite robust, roasty, very nice. The flavor is weak and watery, barely a hint of stout and such a letdown after the aroma made me perk up. You could easily drink this all day but would you really want to?
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Great Divide. It tastes like...baby Yeti. Black with a bit of a tan head. Soft roast and chocolate. Nothing too interesting. Easy to drink. rhialistic (156) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2012
On tap at the brewery. I want this beer bottled! It is so delicious and perfect and not too heavy - i can have a stout even in 100 deg. Denver heat! I hope more brewers ease up and make some smaller yet TASTY beers like this. I love big full mouthfeel high ABV beers too, but not ever single drink every single day. And I hate being relegated to pale or low flavor beers when under 4% ABV...anyway Baby Yeti answers this call well!
Pours very deep brown with a fluffly brown head. Aromas of deep roasted coffee and chocolate, very similar to the Yeti but without the big sweetness. Such a nice flavor exactly like the aroma, but with a much lighter mouthfeel than regular yeti and less hop bite. Sweet roasty aftertaste. So wonderful to have big flavors in a smaller package!
