4.45/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Bottled on Dec 07 2010 (purely coincidence I'm drinking it at exactly two years old). Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter.
A: Pours a jet black color with a dark mocha colored head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring clinging to the sides of the glass. Appears very still like staring into an abyss. Spotted lacing is left behind.
S: Intense dark roasted malts and hints of dark bitter chocolate come through initially. A vanilla like sweetness is noticeable as it warms. Not surprisingly, there is a certain woody quality throughout due to the oak barrel aging process.
T: A slightly more mellow dark roasted malt with a blast of coffee at the finish. Similar to the aroma, the vanilla and woody characteristics have a prominent role.
M: Medium to heavy bodied and very still. It has a slight oil-like feel and drinks very, very smoothly.
O: I was thoroughly impressed by this one. I've never had it fresh, but with two years on it, it is one of the better stouts I've tried. Really well balanced, easy to drink, and ridiculously delicious. I have to pick up as many as I can next time I'm luck enough to find it in my area.

3.31/5 rDev -22.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Look- opaque black, thick poor, thin dark tan head
Smell- hints of milk chocolate almost reminiscent of pudding, oak, coffee, molasses, nutty plum. Some cooked cabbage as well, unfortunately.
Taste- charred oak, bittersweet chocolate, earthy hops, semi-sweet malt in the middle followed by bitter dry finish with notes of cabbage. Alcohol is well hidden.
Feel- medium full, slightly sticky, medium carbonation
Overall- Despite the obvious infection, the aroma and appearance were quite inviting. Flavor was disappointing to me and I'm sure the infection played a role but I'm just not fond of the balance of roasted malt in Yeti.
