3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaque, deep, dark brown. Head is a pillowy, medium brown that dissipates quickly and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is a combination of roasted chocolate malts and alcohol. Taste is very much in line with the aroma--the bittersweet flavor of the roasted malts predominates, with some bright, almost fruity notes provided by the coffee. I didn’t smell the coffee, but I can certainly taste it, and it adds a great deal of character to this stout. Not overdone, but definitely present. Aftertaste is slightly of alcohol, but again, not too strong. Palate is somewhat thin, with lively carbonation--I would have expected something a bit oilier. Overall, I think this is a fine balanced stout. Although explicitly an espresso stout, the coffee plays a supporting role to the chocolate malts, which are the star of the show. But the interaction between the two, with a roasted flavor and a somewhat restrained presence of alcohol, leads to a stout whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts. My only disappointment here is with the palate, which I wish had a wee bit more body--but that’s a very minor point. Compared to the Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti, I do think this one is the superior brew. It’s more flavorful, less alcoholic, and somewhat more balanced. But do try both.

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. NikkTwist (3223) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2017
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 (1875) - 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.

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. wojanex (244) - warszawa, POLAND - MAY 13, 2017
bardzo ładne piwo, przyjemnie się na nie patrzy, pije się równie przyjemnie jak wersję podstawową, taki dostojny ris, nieagresywny, elegancki, dobra kawa w środku. rami_pl (3455) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 13, 2017
