UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 (Stockholm Beer Festival 2005) Black with a wonderful lasting brown head. Great aroma from vanilla, malty and milky, with notes of tar and licorice. Flavor from cocoa, tar and licorice, malty chocolate, some vanilla, salty and a bit peppery. Very strong and warming wth out tasting of alcohol. Has a long bitter finish and a wonderful body. One of the best beers on the festival... ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2005
(bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival) Black as coal with a firm brown head. Deep and sweet aroma of black coffee, flowers, vanilla, coconuts and alcohol. Bitter flavour of coffee, wood, hops and unsweetened chocolate. Sweet undertones of vanilla. Long bitter and woody aftertaste. jcwattsrugger (12418) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2005

Bottle. Very dark black, completely opaque. Dark beige head. Aroma is earthy and strong with licorice and coffee. Roasted chocholate with oak and espresso. Good hoppiness at finish. Very good beer.

rustic red wine oak aroma, pitch black with a large tightly packed dark brown head, the oak hits right away like licking the inside of a barrel, then it mellows out into a desert like rich dark chocolate, a distinct burntness like tobacco lingers then a burst of hoppiness before a hint of sweetness and once again overpowering oak, mouthfeel is creamy yet assertive, overall I think it is an excellent beer yet the oak is perhaps overly prevalent jefcon (1833) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2005
Pitch black with a lively brownish head that lingers, piling up in the corners of the glass. Strong, longlasting aromas of vanilla, orange, coffee, caramel, and nuttiness. A bite of alcohol and full hops precedes a slightly bitter coffee bean/chocolate beer. It’s creamy on the tongue, and finishes with a somewhat dry vanilla coda. Lacing sticks to the glass like you wouldn’t believe. Rich, complex, and amazingly balanced. fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 23, 2005
Dark Dark Brown color. The foam was even dark Brown. Vanilla Oak Chocolate with a roasted bitter finish. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2005
Pitch black colour with a dense brown head. Roasted malty aroma with a chocolate sweetness and a hoppy touch. Coffee bitter flavor, light earth hints and some alcohol sweetness. Dry bitter finish. temporrari (397) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2008 Yeah, I’ve had this a few times and each time it is less impressive. The original is better, but my opinion of the regular Yeti is not as high as it used to be. Blew me away as Maverick, something has either changed with the beer, or with me. The oak just doesn’t work for me in this brew. Still, I wouldn’t pour it out of my glass.
