look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Completely black in color. Poured with a brief caramel brown foam that dissiaptated quickly leaving behind a light wisps of foam. Roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee with hints dark fruits and vanilla. Thick, viscous, incredibly smooth, almost chewable feel. Deep roasted malt, dark coffee and dark chocolate flavors up front transitioning to a steadily intensifying hop bitterness through the finish. Finishes with a boozy, pine hop bitterness that lingers for quite some time.

all this time and no review of yeti! bottle picked up while passing through NJ. bottled 4/27/2011

a - opened the bottle and filled my E snifter. brew poured an oil sludge black and settled just as dark with a deep brown foamy head. the finger of head just sat there with occasional popping of bubbles until some of the deep black showed through the surface. head is easily rebuilt with a swirl...lacing is sparse and spotty, but clings.

s - wonderful roasted malt. fresh roasted coffee with flashes of vanilla and cream. booze soaked chocolate. smooth and even. decadent.

t - deep rich chocolate. like getting one of those fondue plates and just putting your glass under the molten chocolate. this thing is rich and wild. toasted malts dipped in chocolate. hint of coffee and drippy caramel.

m - thick and powerful. leaves a boozy tingle.

o - overall...i believe.

This beast is heavy.

A: Poured from a bottle 4 days after bottling. Didn't even have time to put a bottled on date on the label. Poured a thick, jet black syrup in my glass. The beast has a nice brown head that dissipates pretty quickly.

S: The beast smells of chocolate, roasty-like and coffee smelling. Second whiff brings bits of caramel and toffee to the mix as well. Quite complex.

T: Damn, this beast packs a wollop. First I was hit in the face by deep roasty character, but after that subsided, it backhanded me with a pretty strong citrus character. Also, there is a nice caramel, chocolate and toffee tone, but nothing like that coffee upper cut which left me helpless on the snow at the beast's mercy. Very
good.

M: This beast has thick weight on the palate. Quite heavy on the entire palate, but still fairly dry. The malt character especially dries out at the end to lure you into that false sense of safety for the hop blow, which dries out in the end as well.

O: This is a superb beer. I will definitely throw myself in front of the next Yeti I see in snowy Kansas and test the power that is such.

I also picked up the Oak Aged Yeti, but I can only deal with 1 beast per night. I must rest up before I take on the next one.
