Reviewing yeti bottled on 28th Feb 2012. SO almost 10 months on this one.
Pours very thick dark brown in color. Not to say, pitch black inside the glass. About one finger thick shining brown colored head. Excellent lacing on the sides. Head does not have a lot of standing bu a thin layer does stay throughout.
A very good smelling RIS. And that too after 10 months. Good roasted malts upfront. Some dark chocolate, caramel and licorice or chicory. Some English toffee. A little bit of alcohol also does enter the nose.
Taste: A Very solid taste. Enters with roasted, charred malts but surprisingly they are not overpowering. A very good amount of hop bitterness accompanied by some alcohol. Finish is dry and slightly bitter. Nothing is too strong. Sweetness of malts is very well nullified by the hops and charring. Some coffee and chocolate flavors are also observed.
Mouth feel: One of the very thick looking stout but has surprisingly smooth and creamy feel. Full bodied. Whatever astringency is observed, is seen at the time when the brew enters the mouth. Ends with a very balanced taste. Extremely good finish. Stout is a bit chewy and thick. Gives a kick. Very nice warmth and a must for winter season.
Drink slow. Enjoy. Let it warm you and itself.
