4.06/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
22oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (bottled on 12/18/12)
A: Pitch black with a nice bubbly thick mocha head, but not as big as the chocolate yeti.
S: A bit of dark chocolate, with a lot of that acidic espresso scent.
T: Espresso acidity with a nice slightly sweet malt backbone. Black coffee all the way. Just a bit of vanilla oak in there to complement it. It really comes across in the bitter aftertaste that is just like coffee. Only a bit of warming malts here. There is a bit of chocolate taste in there as well.
M: Almost no carbonation, it is very subtle and masked, just a hint of coarseness so it isn't completely flat and gives it a bit of character.
O: I love that the Yeti offers an affordable way to try variations on a single base stout. I think I said this before in another review but I'm not a huge coffee/espresso guy, but they can really put in that flavor.
