Dark opaque black color. Nice one finger dark brown head. I love the color of the head on this beer. Lots of spotty lacing
Sweet roasted malts on the nose. Espresso and dry cocoa with some salt water. Hints of vanilla in the finish as well as alcohol.
The taste is full of bitter sweet cocoa and roasted sweet malts. Deep espresso flavors and a nice bitter hop finish. The oak is evident in the finish and seems to smooth out some of the sweetness that Yeti usually has. You can really notice the vanilla in the oak in the background. The oak flavors help balance out some of the sweetness as well.
Very full bodied. Goes down very smooth, but you'll want to sip this one to really appreciate all of the complexities. Quite drinkable, a real treat in the evening to sip and relax with. The oak notes in the finish really add a layer of sophistication to this already amazing brew.

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.
