look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured into a brandy snifter from 22 oz bottle.
A: Pours out jet black with half to full finger of light brown head that dissipates after a minute or so. Brown ring of tiny carbonation beads line where the beer meets the glass.
S: Smells of coffee and dark chocolate. Lots of roastyness that lets me know this is going to be powerfully bitter at the end of the drink. Strong coffee is the main player in the aroma. Don't get much oak though which I had assumed would be a distinct characteristic.
T: Get's hit with a huge amount of sweet maltyness that blends to strong cocoa almost right away. Comes to bitter coffee, as expected, in the back palate. No hop character with a very boozy aftertaste.
M: medium bodied for a stout. Slight creamyness that makes it somewhat filling. 22 oz is all I would be able to take of this beer as that much made me fill heavy and light headed.
O: Pretty much what I expected after sampling the nose of the beer. Lots of coffee and chocolate bitterness. Good but would definitely be a sipping beer for me as the coffee and alcohol was a bit overpowering in large gulps. I drink most all of my beer at just under room temperature to get the full spectrum of flavor from my beer. some oak character picked up in the second fill to finish off the bomber which was nice.

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.
