I like oaked beer and love coffee. Until yesterday, I'd never had a GDBC beer I didn't like, and never had a Yeti I didn't love. Imagine my surprise when this became my first of both.
The pour as always is beautiful - gloppy with a polluted looking head. Nice. The smell is a bit subtle, roast, oak, but not a lot of coffee. Not bad, but a bit...hmmm.
Taste is a problem, the coffee is completely absent. Oak and roast are there, but they merge with a totally unexpected shot of hop to create a bitterness that is borderline intolerable. Just not fun to drink. Wonderfully creamy consistency, as is the case with all Yetis. But taste matters most, so this beer is thumbs-down. I will still go after other Yeti mutations, but I am done with this one. Still a bit shocked.
