22oz bottle w/ bottled on date of 11/14/11 poured into a brandy snifter.
Impenetrably dark, thick, viscous looking. Espresso crema-colored head of three fingers height. Gnarly lacing scaling down the inner walls of the glass.
Aromas of dark roasted coffee, bleachy oak, alcohol sweetness, burnt sugars, chocolate custard. Almost nose-clearing with a deep whiff.
Upfront bitterness from the dark malt; decent hop bite upon a swish. Wonderful sweetness on the swallow. Intense flavors of coffee, milk caramel, grilled meat char, hard tack candy, and almost a hint of black cherry.
Mouthfeel is a bit milky; great body, full and nearly oily. Chewy, sticky, and most intact.
A gorgeous R.I.S. Complex notes and instantly warming. Remarkable version of the renowned Yeti. Can't wait to try the Chocolate version. Have one more of the Oak Aged that will sit for quite awhile.
Be most determined to get ahold of this one.

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.
