Bottle dated October 2009, picked this up at Gomers in KC last year.
A – Dark rich black color, nice brown head that pairs nicely with the body.
S – Lots of earthy notes in the nose, some dark dank fruit also, a very mild vanilla smell and nice roasted malt. Not a lot of oak to this, could the aging have stripped that away?
T – A very rich earthy taste, some woodiness, and a decent amount of roast. But something either is still developing or over developed because it felt like it was missing a little something.
M – Exceptional, nice carbonation and a little on the thick side which I like for a big stout.
O – I might have either opened this too early or too late, I’m curious if an additional year or two would have added more, I guess I’ll have to wait and find out since I have one more bottle in my cellar.
Still love the Yeti line, wish more breweries would make more readily available stout variates similar to GD Yeti.

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.
