Bought a snifter at the Magic Tree Pub in OH. Midnight black with a dark cocoa-tinged head (reduced to lacing quickly), looked like a stout-lover's wet dream. Notes of chocolate and vanilla, mild oak, bitterness (go Yeti), and a hint of smoke/tobacco on the nose. Flavors really came through will all of the above mentioned players (aromas) at the party on my tongue. Especially dominant were the chocolate and bitterness, and overall nice balance prevailed. Will have to try this again, I feel like I scarfed it a bit quickly because it was so good! Imagine that more flavors might have emerged... man was this tasty. Medium to hearty mouthfeel as expected. This was a 'NAILED IT' type of beer. Not to mention half-price on Mondays so it put me back about $3. Cheers. Find this.

A: Coal black and nice lacing mocha head

S: mostly a malty roasty wood smell

T: hoppy bitterness with a malty roast finish not very sweet and once if warms you can taste the wood

M: full bodied and creamy

O: I remember liking this beer better a year ago I think it is the hoppiness I don't care for but overall it's a good beer if you like a more hop forward stout which I don't feel is my cup of tea anymore.

The regular Yeti is an excellent, bitter Imperial Stout, but the oak aging sends it "over the top," imparting a lovely sweetness and complexity that makes it one of the most memorable beers of the year. Had it at Far Bar in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles.
