This is my favorite Yeti yet -- the darkness & spicyness the coffee adds to it makes this even more spectacular a beer than the other Yeti's I've tried.
Pours dark & thick, kinda like maple syrup... Had a creamy white head of small bubbles initially, but that dissipated quickly leaving just the black tar behind.
The smell is very complex, like coffee one minute but also with strong hints of vanilla coming through. Whatever is in there, it smells big, roasted, and dark!
Very (surprisingly) sweet taste to it. I figured the malt would come through heavy, but this was almost like drinking a tootsie roll. The sweetness is matched only by the bitterness -- they managed to bring the hop bitterness forward along with the sweetness of the malt too!
