look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a Duvel glass.
A: Head is a deep dark cola (black) color. Good persistent creamy white head. Lacing good but not spectacular. 4
S: Actually reminds me of rich chocolate ice cream. As expected, fairly highly hopped- citrus, nice DIPA-ish tangerine/malt dichotomy, and chartreuse (think the chartreuse note comes from pine/grassiness mixed with alcohol). Rich and interesting-smelling. Definitely chocolatey, maybe that's from the oak. 4.5
T: Again I think the oak comes across as chocolatey. Good acrid, bitter, earthy dryness with some nice hops breaking through. You get the occasional hint of residual sugar but it's largely undermined by roast bitterness, which I like. Very well balanced to my palate. Again, very chocolate ice creamy, although it ends very dry. 4.5
M: Very thick, viscous, but also somehow slick, furthering the "chocolate ice cream" impression. 4.5
O: This beer is a rich and decadent assault on the senses. Very, very solid (and delicious) beer. Almost too rich. Better than the coffee by a fair margin. 3.5

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.
