4.05/5 rDev -5.2%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Looks like motor oil coming out of the bottle; jet black and thick. Head is a dark nutty tan, just fabulous. Retention is very good, and after it reduces the lacing is very nice, clinging all over the glass.
Smell: Dark roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee are very prevalent. But the smell that is at the forefront in my opinion is an oak woodiness. Kind of drowns out the other smells, making this Yeti version just okay in this department.
Taste: Roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate bitterness are all overlayed by that woody taste. I like the taste better than the smell, but still not a huge fan of the woodiness in this beer.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Mouthfeel is full, thick and creamy. Totally awesome in my opinion. This beer hides it's alcohol very well, but in the end is a sipping beer for sure. Still, good drinkability.
Conclusion: I definitely prefer the original Yeti over this version. This is still a solid RIS, but as with other things the sequel doesn't measure up to the original.
