Had this one last week. Very good. I'd definitely buy again.
Appearance: Thick, dark, with a beautiful brown head. Nothing looks better on beer that a head of dark brown bubbles. Otherwise the beer is dark and clean.
Smell: Deep and malty. I might even say rusty, but in a good way. The oak isn't really coming through in the smell.
Taste: Again, deep and roasty with a little bit of hop. It took awhile for the oak taste to come out, although it was more noticeable once the beer warmed up.
Mouthfeel is pleasant. You can tell you're really drinking something. The thickness meant that the carbonation was present throughout which gave the beer a subtle foaminess that I liked.
Drinkability: This is without a doubt one of the most drinkable stouts I've ever tried. I went through it much faster than I anticipated. This could be a session beer on a cold night.

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.
