UPDATED: JUN 19, 2009 Gosh darn nice beer. Pours jet black and a thin brown head doesn’t appear until you’re done. I smell coffee, chocolate, and burning wood. Has a nice fireplace kind of aroma. Bit thinner than I was expecting. Silky smooth going down, very hoppy and gets more aromatic as you drink it. I’d definitely buy this again. Probably a top 10 beer for me.

Right off I notices it’s obvious thickness...coats the side of the glass with a viscous layer. Small brown head on a black as night pour...substantial, NO light gets through it. Aroma is a nice caramel. The taste has hints of chocolate and great big coffee aftertaste.
Palate is incredibly thick....it has the consistency of glue on your tongue. Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Beautiful black body with a minimal brown head. Almost a perfect aroma for a stout, caramel, chocolate, malts and dark fruits round it out. Excellent taste with accents of vanilla, mollasses and an oaked fruit quality. A creamy ending with maybe some burbon accents. ebarnes (261) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2006
22 oz bottle. Pours black with a modest tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, malt, and a little whisky. Flavor is VERY smooth. The oak flavor really set this apart from the other Yeti. unibaren (157) - 8000 Århus C, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2006
Roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla and other delicious notes. Pitch black colour, dark brown lasting head and beautiful lacing. Not dominated by the usual Great Divide hop-bombardment, and much more balanced then its Yeti-siebling - but not very oaky. Smooth long lasting artertaste.

Black colour with a big creamy brown head. Roasted aroma with hints of wood and chocolate. Taste roasted malty with hints of chocolate, coffe and vanilla notes. Long roasted aftertaste with some bitterness. Hooker (468) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2006
Jet black colour with lasting tan head. Robust molassa malt nose. Strong burnt malt taste with lingering bitter burnt finish. BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Black beer with a dark head. Aroma is sweet and inviting, vanilla-coffee-malt-and slight bourbon scent. I have to rate again after my next bottle, as I should not have been drinking this in the state I was in. However, what I wrote down was the incredible mix of white chocolate & bourbon that hides the alcohol well and remains smooth and luscious throughout. peter (445) - Normal, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2006
The oaken forest cries molasses sap.
The coffe pours out of the wodden mug and warms the milk. RazingDreamz (123) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Black body, dark chocolate milk-colored head, foamy and lasting. Dark chocolate, roasted nuts, caramel aroma. Oak taste discernable over dark chocolate bitterness. Very thick, very full. Toffee aftertaste. Holy crap, I like this beer.
