More than a beer, this is a state of mind. Yogi has a rich copper color with aromas of honey, oak, lavender and black tea. Saigon cinnamon, clove, ginger, cardamom, and black pepper create an exotic flavor profile. Caramel notes are offset by rich tannins. Ideally served at 50 - 55F.

Amber pour with a big, off-white head. Nose of cardamom, ginger, and clove. Sweet bread and hints of caramel. Toast, a hint of pepper, and gingerbread. Nice sweetness of molasses, caramel, and gingerbread. Good spice profile, particularly clove, cinnamon, and ginger. More subtle cardamom on the palate.

If you know anyone who complains that so-called "spiced" beers dont contain enough spices give them one of these. Not that its the greatest, just that there are arguably excessive quantities of an excessive number of different spices.

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2013
The nose is primarlly spicy - cardamom, clove, and cinnamon. Pours a copperish-amber with a mostly diminishing off-white head and no lacing. The taste is - whoa - enjoyablely SPICY! Clove, cinnamon, vegetable, and herbs. Pepper and and a grainy flavored were also noted. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, surprisingly enjoyable. I wouldn’t want to drink more than one of them at a time, but very tasty as a single.

The best thing about this beer is its color. This is probably one of the best-looking ambers I can recall, with a deep, deep amber red color and an off-white head. Although the aroma is completely dominated by spices (specifically cardamom and cinnamon), it actually smells a little like its supposed to be that spiced, more like a food than a beer, with a meaty nose that seems slightly bready. Where the beer takes a turn for the worse, in my snobby opinion, is in the flavor. Straight up, its way too spiced for such a light malt presence. For a beer to handle this much spice, it needs to be heavily roasted and dense. Although there is a somewhat bready flavor to the beer, theres nothing bready about the mouth feel. If you can ignore the spices, it tastes like a cross between an amber and a thin-bodied brown ale with minimal roast, but then the spices come up in your face... well, from the start its more of a fresh cardamom and cinnamon (mostly the latter), then you get a touch of the malts and residual sugars, but then youre slammed in the face with so fresh of a spice presence that its like sucking on a fresh cardamom seed covered in straight cinnamon. Nothing to counter-balance its intensity. Cinnamon up front, cardamom in the back... its not that easy to finish a glass of this. This reminds me of my first attempt at spicing a homebrew. Since then, Ive learned to use (at most) half of the amount of spices I used then. Im surprised that Rogness hasnt figured that out by now. You can get all the characteristics you want without sacrificing comfort.

Wordsworth (147) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Dark creamy color with a thick brown head. Heavy lacing. You can really smell the chai. Tastes of spicy malts, cocoa, and a long yet smooth hoppy finish. Tasty

Bottle:   Deep amber, reddish hue, thin sudsy off-white head, little lacing.   Assertive spicy nose, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, cardamon, ginger, just about the entire kitchen sink.   Smells like somewhat like a Pumpkin Ale, yet slightly different.   Certainly spicy on the tongue, but its mish-mash.   Not as sweet as suggested.   Drier, more Clove than anything.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   By the finish a lot of the spices seem to be really diminished.   Smells better than it comes across.   Just too much I think... more body, more sweetness, and less spice confusion would do this one some good.
