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.

commonmac (1188) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2017
On tap at Republic Seven Corners before the Wavves show. Belgian snifter glass. Looks thick and chocolatey with over a finger of deep tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate and roasty, nutty characteristics. Taste envelopes the palette with a smooth, silky chocolate balanced well with an almost bourbon like smoke and alcohol bite. Love the vanilla component and agree with other raters that there is a hint of spice heat towards the end. Big and boozy. More bitterness than expected...dark chocolate playing its part. Like a dangerous dessert. Ill track down this yeti again.

Surprise surprise aroma is chocolate dominant with a slight coffee (maybe more cocoa than chocolate). Lacks some thickness, sweetness is disturbed. Good but not great.

zoucrew102 (1756) - - MAY 6, 2017
Bomber, 2014 vintage. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate, oak, vanilla and a bit of cayenne. Pours deep brown with a thin mocha brown head that has some retention and lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt and chocolate malt flavors to go with a full body and a smooth viscous mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with notes of vanilla and oak with cayenne providing a spicy kick at the end that lingers on the palate. Really nice imperial stout.

Flaska frn SB. Kolsvart, tjock vtska med hgt, fluffigt brunbeiget skum. Hrliga vlrostade toner frn grund-Yetin mter rejla inslag av choklad, vanilj och ek. En massiv, silkeslen kropp som stramas t ngot av ek-karaktren. Stora, brnda toner smakmssigt, med alkohol som vrmer p bra tillsammans med en chilihetta. Mycket vanilj och mrk choklad i smaken med. Riktigt trevlig, som vanligt med Yeti. Kanske inte favoriten dock!

I stort sett svart l med ett strre svart skum. Doft av mrk bitter choklad, kakao och mrka br. I smaken tilkommer chili, vilket snker betyget fr min del.

4 finger dark tan coloured head. Opaque black. Aroma is dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, soy, oatmeal and lemon zest. Hints of caramel. Taste is dark chocolate, bitter coffee, cocoa powder, oak and chili heat. Low on sweetness. Dry harshness from cocoa powder. Medium thickness. Pretty big bitterness but not the kind I prefer. Overall: Was expecting this to be the greatest Yeti but Id much rather drink the regular and the Oak Aged over this. Not a fan of spicyness in my beers and it is quite prominent in this. The cayenne, along with a cloud of bitterness, covers the wonderful Yeti taste thats lying there in the background (and thats why this didnt recieve a lower rating). Honestly, this should be named "Chili Oak Aged yeti" because theres lots of that but barely any sweetness in this, which you expect from something with "Chocolate" in its name. Ohwell, rant over.
