When poured from the bottle the beer pours a very dark chocolate brown with a nice light brown head. The scent is all rich roast coffee with a hint of chocolate malt. The taste is coffee though not as intense as the nose would indicate. The mouthfeel is full and rich but again not quite up to expectations. Overall this is a very tasty beer and I am glad I tried it. While the alcohol level stated on the bottle is high it is extremely well integrated and not at all noticeable when drinking this brew. The carbonation is also well integrated.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pitch black, opaque with hardly any brown visible. Big, frothy mocha colored head. Caked on lacing with foamy film.

S: Smells a good deal like the base Yeti, but with slightly bitter espresso and oak added. Chocolate and roasted malts.

T: Rich espresso coffee in the forefront with chocolate, oak, roasted malts, molasses and dark fruits.

M: Rich and velvety.

O: This is a very good beer, but to be honest, I like the regular Yeti better. Just like the regular though, the alcohol is incredibly well hidden making this extremely drinkable.
