bottles hit NY not all that long ago, enjoyed from a great divide snifter.
bottled 1/9/2013 (my wedding anniversary).
a - brew poured a silky, shiny black with a big head (dropped the bottle before opening it, so it was definitely lively at my own fault). great shine and look.
s - oaky hops on a stout. coffee is in there as well. the coffee is a nice compliment to the oaky hoppy stout.
t - gourmet espresso beans. vanilla. hops. oak. chocolate. stout. happiness in a glass. really amazing.
m - SUPER smooth. easy drinking. just a homerun.
o - overall, probably my favorite yeti to date. just phenomenal. not a bad beer in the series, but this one is just killer. the espresso and oak and yeti...oh my.

3.23/5 rDev -24.4%
Nose: strong coffee, strong roasty barley. To much roasty-ness going on, a bit overpowering.
Palate: coffee and roast up front, big surprise. after thinking about it for a bit too long a bit of vanilla became reconizable. there was a bitterness from the hops, but I could not get much hop flavor, not that I would want any, but the bitterness was a bit superfluous.
Finish: burnt, roasty, and a little more vanilla. dulled hop hints.
Overall: a highly unbalanced beer. The malt profile did not complement the coffee, it just all got together to make a very roasty/burnt taste.
