On tap at Csakajósör, Budapest. Opaque, black color with creamy, dark brown head. The odor is a bit coffee. Spicy, resiny aroma at the beginning. Later the malt and the yeast appears with fruity, grainy and chocolate flavours. Very rich and creamy aroma. The, bitter, dark chocolate is the most dominant flavour. The hops play a "supprt role", and it’s does it very good. The high alcohol content is well hidden. It has full body, creamy, oily texture and light carbonation. It’s a very well balanced beer with intensive fruit and chocolate aroma. Strong but "coordinated" beer. It’s a very good decision. It’s a bit lighter, but more fruity than the original Yeti. brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Had on tap at Beer Geeks in Northwest Indiana. Pours a dark brown, almost black color with a very minimal head. Great aroma just like the other yeti styles: nice coffee and roasty chocolate notes with some bready scents. Not getting too much of a belgian scent. On the taste I get some licorice, lots of chocolate, coffee, some vanilla and woody notes. Some sourness from the belgian yeasts as well. This plays along with the bold stout flavors pretty well. Characteristic belgian flavor on the finish along with some hop bitterness. Medium to full body with a little creaminess to it. Nice, somewhat long finish to it. Roasted chocolate and coffee flavor outlast the sourness. More of a stout fan than a belgian beer fan, but interesting take on the Yeti. jbruner (4734) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Pours a dark brown black from the bomber with a thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma light on roasted malts, slight coffee, and belgian fruitiness. Taste is yeti stout with a slight fruit note, and an odd lingering finish on tongue. An interesting mix of styles, nice but odd. Scopey (14708) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle, thanks to jackl. It pours very dark brown, with a thin light beige head. The nose is tire, roasted malt, toffee, plastic, dark fruit, cherry and blueberry. The taste is charcoal, roasted malt, chocolate, sweet-sour aspect, tangy fruit, grapefruit, cola and earth. Medium-full body and fine, prickly carbonation. Alcohol is pretty obvious. Interesting, but I definitely prefer regular yeti. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle @ CBC’s First Birthday Party. The pour’s deep brown with hardly any head. The nose is vanilla and charred wood, some marshmallow and honeyed peanuts. The taste is light honeyed apples and spicy chili chocolate. Some hints of lactose and roasted coffee. Medium body, soft and pretty easy to drink. Overall, decent. Not my favorite in the generally phenomenal Yeti series...

Pours opaque black. Combination of coffee and roasted malts along with dry fruits, yeast and honey. Combines my two favorite styles together. madmitch76 (24791) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012

Bottle shared at Craft by Jack? Cheers! Opaque black beer, little pale tan head. Light semi dry palate. Semi dry chocolate and aged malt. Not much else going on. Okay.
Bottle at the CBC 1st Birthday Party, London. I think Jack brought this bottle, so thanks. Pours deep and dark with a sturdy, beige-brown foam. Moderate roast in the nose with suggestions of chocolate. Flavor is not overly sweet. It has lots of dusty roast, cocoa, some dark candies. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Nice finish, lightly warming with more dark chocolate, dry and dusty roasted malts, faint earth and dark fruits. A solid beer and a decent twist on the normal Yeti. Fielding (58) - - JUN 30, 2012
Not much nose but a darn nice lookin beer. Too sweet for my taste but my partner thinks otherwise. A decent representation for great divide, but an unfortunate lowering of the formidable yeti stout series. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2012
