Bottled 01/10, poured into a DFH Snifter
A - Pitch black with an impressively sized, dark brown head. Good retention with a sticky lace.
S - Alcohol carries in the nose stronger then I would expect for a 9.5 ABV, especially after sitting in my cellar for a year. Strong earthy character with lot's of dark roasted malts and bits of coffee and espresso.
T&M - Heavier and thicker body with a somewhat creamy feel to it. Chocolate malt abounds, with hints of coffee and baker's chocolate in the back. Alcohol is present with a defined warmth after swallowing, and carbonation is moderate. After the beer sits for a while I get traces of dark fruit as well...a bit unexpected, but not unwelcome.
O - It's almost April...and it's snowing. I'm finding this to be the perfect beer for the occasion, with a heavier body and a nice warming effect. This is one I wouldn't mind keeping a few of around for nights like this.

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.
