Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. April 2010 vintage.
This beer pours a dark brown into the glass forming an inch thick mocha-colored head. The lacing from this beer is gorgeous.
The Yeti has aromas of oats and chocolate with hints of coffee/espresso.
Immediately, a burned coffee takes over the tongue. This fades as bitter dark chocolate and malt come into play. The finish is bitter but hardy, consisting of roasted malt and bitter chocolate.
This is a full bodied beer with just the right amount if carbonation (ie not too much). The finish leaves almost a tiny bit of an oily film which only allows the tastes of the finish to linger for forever.
Although I prefer the oak-aged Yeti, I do enjoy this stout quite a lot. Upon first taste, the beer is very hardy, but as you drink it becomes excessively palatable. I could definitely drink a couple of pints of this beer, even with it being a year old.
