3.31/5 rDev -22.3%
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.

Extremely black pour with a brown head...what could be better? I love the dark stuff and dark stuff with a dark head is even better. Everything about this beer is dark. Completely devoid of any lightness in the color and the head is only slightly lighter. The only thing holding the beer back is the head, which while beautiful, doesn't retain well. There is a nice lacing however.
Subtle scents abound, of caramel and toffee, and dark roasted malts. Faint chocolate. But in this, you can really smell the grains.
I love this beer. More roasted grains and a bit of chocolate. Either hops or bittersweet chocolate provide balance.
Sweet, then bitter, but always smooth and creamy. Despite the grainy feel, it's oh so creamy. The alcohol is always present, but in a good, manly way. Very thick and full bodied, could be a great dessert beer.
Such an easy beer to sip, despite the high ABV. The oak gives an ever-present earthiness to it. Bordering on flawless.

Bomber from Bristol Farms Palm Desert CA for 8$ - Dec 2011 bottle date
Appearance - Black/brown colour with a large size light brown coloured head. It's too dark to see the carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Grains, chocolate/coffee, malts
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste chocolate, coffee, and malts. There is also some some burnt/roasted notes and a light woodiness.
Overall - Can't pick up on the oak as much as I would like, but this is also a bottle from 2011. Holind up very well I might add. Still some great chocolate flavour and a bitter roastiness. A great beer that I will pick up again to try fresh.
