I saved this bottle for several months to share with my brother for when he came into town. I must say that it lived up to my lofty expectations. Pours very black with an almost reddish looking, dark tan full head. Aroma is robust and impressive. It contains plenty of chocolate to go along with oak, licorice, vanilla, and coffee. The taste is very rich chocolate, and lots of it. Perhaps like chocolate cake, however with some coffee and vanilla mixed in. Despite how much chocolate is in here, somehow this really isn’t sweet. And that might be the best part of all with this one. Bitter, especially at the end. Full bodied, as one would expect, with an oily texture. Subtle, yet noticeable carbonation. Alcohol content hides itself well. This certainly doesn’t feel like its as strong as it is. Altogether, this has just about everything that you could hope for in a big beer. Being tasty, well made in every respect, potent without hitting hard, you will really impress most everyone by pouring one of these.
22oz bottle. Black with a thick foamy brown head. Flavors are espresso, chocolate, brown sugar, ashes, caramel, resinous hops and alcohol with herbal, fruity and spicy notes. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. llkc (2495) - århus, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2017

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2017 Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is woody, vegetal, coffee beans, cocoa, mild vanilla. Taste is bitter and woody, black espresso. Not picking up any sweetness here, which is a surprise. Extremely bitter and ashy, heavy on the espresso with very little vanilla or malt on the palate. Also, very hoppy. Easily my least favorite Yeti so far.

Update: Originally served at cellar temp but had another glass colder (from the fridge) and I preferred this a bit colder (think cold brew / iced coffee).
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2017 Draft at Bru Craft. Opaque black pour with thick brown foam. As expected, feels like a regular Yeti but with the coffee turned up a notch. Also maybe feeling more liquorice than in the original. Wonderful stuff! williamstome (1902) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 4, 2017
Black pour, big brown head. Phenomenal aroma and flavor. Straight up espresso, with dark chocolate notes in the flavor. Chewy. Absolutely ridiculous. balloonbuffoon (392) - - JUN 4, 2017
12floz bottle ($2.50, BOD: 12.22.2015) poured into an oversized snifter. This impy stout may have had its coffee addition fade with some time, Despite the lack of a pronounced coffee presence, it’s still a lovely near black color with one-finger of brown head. The nose exhibits the booze content covered in vanilla and mild coffee. The palate is robust, roasty, and has notes of carob. Good.

On tap at the barrel bar, near black with a lasting thick tan crema, amazingly thick and rich, with bitter coffee and bitter hops. Background notes of herbal hopsack, and an astringently burnt finish. It’s great, yet actually quite a challenge to drink. KraftowyJakup (330) - POLAND - MAY 29, 2017
Ciała sporo, choć jak na RISa, to półwytrawnie, gęste, aksamitne, mocno palone z wyraźnie zaznaczonym kakao, kawą i drewnem, w ustach pozostają długie posmaki kawy, poza tym na finiszu dość płasko.
