COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. A Yeti for summer? Hell yes.

Pours a dark motor oil black. Dark brown foamy head. Smells of oak blossoms, hops, chocolate, and coffee. Has a rich coffee taste with a nice burnt coffee taste. Has a bitter aftertaste with the blossoming oak tree flavor coming out :) This beer reminds me when I used to climb mountains in the himalayans back when I was a young lad. I once saw a large yeti that suddenly rushed at me from the forest! I almost peed my pants with fright! This beer really catches the essence of the yeti! Soo tasty! Higly recommened!

Big fan of the Yetis - been trying to track this one down for a while. Bomber from Liquor Loft. Too dark to really see - but lets call it a black pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasty malts, alcohol, wood and chocolate. The taste is milk chocolate, vanilla/oak and light citrus. The heat does come through - a medicinal vodka type burn - not in a bad way, but a little different. Texture is on the thinner side for imp stouts, but still creamy. Nice warming vibe like all of the Yetis. I think the Espresso is still my favorite of these - but this is very good too.

Nice dark pour. Lightly spiced nose in the giddy chocolate covered way. Excellent smooth body, light carbonation, heavy in the spiced coffee, smooth in the silkier chocolate flavors. Epic bitter coffee and spicy finish. Quite a big hit with the ABV but it honestly compliments this beverage. Dank!

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Pours with a nice, thick brown head. The nose is slightly spicy (hot spicy), with rum, vanilla, bourbon, and brussels sprouts. Kind of sloppy. In the mouth, it is bright up front, carbonic, fading into and slow, syrupy midbody and rough aftertastenotes of caramel, marshmallow, carbonic acid, maple syrup. A bit harsh overall.

No no no, ratings too low. Beautiful pour. Black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast malt, vanilla, whiskey. Flavor is similar with a very dry hoppy finish that begs for more. You have more and fall on the floor.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle at ChrisOs Back in the UK tasting, 22nd May 2010. Nearly pure black. Tons of oak and chocolate with a chilli burn at the back of the throat. Very intense and rather nice (in small measures).

drowland (7913) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2010
6/18/10. Bomber into a snifter. The pour is jet, opaque black with a huge, creamy, thick, oily brown head that looks speckled with cocoa powder. The aroma is dark chocolate powder with a hint of sour and a good roasty kick. The flavor starts sweet and chocolatey, hints at a touch of sour, and finishes huge and roasty bitter. A nice spectrum and tingles spiciness at the very end and makes for a pretty yummy experience.

Bottle. Bottled May 2010, imbibed at just over 1 month old. Pours black with a thin brown head. Light roasty aroma with some piney hops and lighter notes of semi-sweet chocolate. The flavor has a good balance of roasted malts and piney hops, and lighter chocolate notes. Some coffee comes out as it warms. Really good. Id imagine that in a few months the hop profile with subside, allowing the chocolate to come more to the forefront.
