22 oz bottle. Black pour with a huge tight bubbled creamy chocolate brown head that lasted forever and left thick sheets of lacing. Big and thick roasty nose with lots of espresso. Not a whole lot of oak, but not too surprising. A little burnt and earthy smelling, but I like it. The roast and coffee battle for supremacy with some light oak and alcohol on the finish. A little heavy on the malt bitterness with some moderate hopping on the back end. Pretty restrained alcohol for 9.5%. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and heavy but not syrupy or cloying at all. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall pretty decent, not sure if its a whole lot better than the regular Yeti, but it was worth trying.

Blew back a bunch of samplers at GABF 2009. You wont need to have morning coffee after a couple of these.

Bottle. Dark tarry black pour with a thick hot chocolate top pour. Dark mocha and toast on the nose. Nice, well-balanced coffee and cane syrup with powdered cocoa and green wood and EtOH on the fringe. EEEEE. Love it.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bomber, bottled on 3/6/09. Poured deep brown with a thick, creamy cap of head that wasnt much lighter than the liquid. The aroma picked up rich, roasted espresso and a blend of chocolates accented by vanilla beans, oak, and more toasted brown malts.. darker spice and earthy hoppage as well.. balance was great! The flavor found espresso and molasses at the dense core with layers of vanilla and cocoa around.. oak and prickly alcohol warmed up the edges.. vanilla joined coffee on the lengthy finish. Heavier-bodied with great balance on the palate.. nice creamy feel, especially on the middle. Id love to see this more readily available.

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2009
The aroma on this guy is loads of oak character - tons of vanilla, wood, and even some bourbon characteristics. The flavor is plenty of sweet, a bit of chocolate, and the finish is a whole hell of a lot of coffee. Wow the end of this puppy is bitter and dark coffee grinds.

GABF 09. Pure black with a thin, fine, dark brown head. Full, roasted aroma, with dark chocolate, brown sugar, and--what else--espresso. The flavor is more of the same with loast of roasted grain astringency/bitterness, some sweetness, and alcohol. Body is big and full with a mouth-coating texture. Its been a while since Ive the had the regular oak-aged Yeti, but I remember it tasting less commercial than this--and that was from the bottle. I think given some time to mellow in the bottle this beer could develop some additional complexity. Sidenote: "Breakfast Burrito" food pairing?!

Bottle: Poured a midnight black with a tan head. The aroma was coffee, cream, and chocolate. The flavor smooth, espresso, chocolate, dry oak, and vanilla. Overall, this was a great beer.

Bottle. Pours a opaque black with a small tan head that left nice lacing. Aroma of espresso beans, chocolate and coffee. Rich smooth flavor of bittersweet chocolate, espresso, black coffee, dark roasted malts and has a hint of vanilla with a nice roasty finish. Excellent stout
