Poured the full bomber into an oversized mug.

Pours a motor-oil black, in color and consistency. A weak, light-brown head tops off the pour.

The aroma is a bit chocolatey, with a bit of a coffee bite. There's a touch of a generic hop smell as well.

Big flavor here. It's chocolate forward like the nose (and like the other Yetis I've tried). The coffee adds some dry bitterness, and quite a bit of classic coffee flavor. The dryness here is not surprising, as the dominant flavors are dark chocolate and java. This gets much, much better and flavorful as it warms, so do yourself a favor, and let it sit out of the fridge for a half-hour before pouring.

Mouthfeel is solid, but just a bit syrupy. In addition to being syrupy, it's somehow just a touch too thin. These are minor issues, though.

This is a nice, versatile, potent brew. Lots of flavor, but would seriously be suitable for breakfast as well as dessert. Typical of a Yeti brew, it's almost too dry and bitter to get through the whole thing, but I did it anyway.

A- Black with large dark tan head.
S- Coffee and grapefruit smell. citrus smell overpowers the coffee smell.
T- caramel dark chocolate, with espresso flavor
MF- full bodied flavor. very thick malty and bitter flavor
D- would drink again. easy to somewhat medium drinking. would assume to see as a higher class place offering this beer. sort of hard to drink if you are not used to bitter or stouts. but will take time to drink through the glass.
