22oz. bomber. $6.99 at Once Upon A Vine.
A: Despite the satisfying "pfft" as I opened the bottle, there was precisely zip/zero/zilch head whatsoever, even with an aggressive pour. Couldn't get anything. No sheeting lace action after the sip. No wispy thin layer of lace. Color is very dark, but as the glass empties, it takes on an appearance similar to that of tincture of mecurcrhome. Bits of crimson at the edges.
S: Vanilla beans soaked in wood casks. Lots of boozy notes here. Very sugary as well. A hint of dark and bitter baking chocolate.
T: Smoky chocolate up front. Vanilla extract shows up and mixes with a charred wooden booze barrel. Coffee beans break in. Lingering bourbony aftertaste with a dash of bitterness. Definitely more subdued than regular Yeti.
M/D: Flat, with zero carbonation. Not as thick and chewy as expected. Not as boozy as other aged beers I've had.
Notes: Tasty and mellow, but I much prefer "regular" Yeti. Amazing what aging in casks can do to the overall impression of the beer.
Serving type: bottle
