Oak Aged Yeti
Bomber that was bottled on Oct 30 2009 poured in a DFH signature glass.
A: Oak Aged Yeti pours black, and a deep brown head erupts, clings to glass and falls to a thick skim atop the beer, leaving behind impressive Brussels lacing.
S: Oak and earth catch my nose's attention. Next, milk chocolate and herbal, tea-like hops. A little roast brings up rear.
T: Oak leads off taste, joined by sweet malts Then a fusion of chocolate, bitterness, and roast take over. An earthy, tea-like quality, which seems to be Yeti's calling card, pervades the entire tasting experience. Bitter, roasted coffee lasts long in finish.
M: Big-boned beer with medium carbonation. Yet, it is mouthcoating and keeps acting oily. A touch warming.
D: Oak Aged Yeti is a sipper that goes down a tad too easily. This particular bottled had been cellared for roughly 18 months and it responded wonderfully.

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.
