This is one solid beer with a ton of character to spare!
Poured into a Duvel glass this beer is completely opaque-black with a nice 1 inch tight bubbled tan head.
The roastiness of the malt and light oakiness shines through in the scent. There is a decent amount of sweetness that even shines in the aroma.
The flavor is rich, smooth, and creamy with lots of sweet malts. There is nothing too chocolatey, hoppy, or over the top in this beer. I do taste a little more vanilla and a lot less hops than in the regular Yeti. This is a whole 'nother animal (excuse the pun).
Mouthfeel is rich and decatant with lots of unattenuated malt sweetness and plenty of oakiness to round out the alcohol fullness.
Drinkaility is way higher in this beer than in the regular Yeti. This beer is full and rich but is definately easy to drink. I would give it high marks just because I did in fact reach for another - it's just too good to pass up!

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.
