Bottle is dated March 27, 2012. Poured into a Lost Abbey Teku. Pitch black pour with a beautiful frothy mocha-colored head. I get a considerable amount of chocolate on the nose along with some roast coffee.
Full body and nice creamy feel. Great flavors of bittersweet chocolate on the front of the tongue. It's not too sweet or bitter and isn't overdone at all. It perfectly complements the roast and malty tones. According to the label, there is also a dash of cayenne pepper and I love the contribution it makes to the flavor. It doesn't clash with the chocolate at all. It provides a small bit of heat that creeps in and pinches you right in the back of the throat as you swallow, leaving a pleasant lingering peppery heat.
I thought this beer was spectacular. Of all the Yeti variations I've tried, this one might be my favorite. It's smooth, tasty, complex, and dangerously drinkable. The peppery heat really gives it character too. I cannot recommend this beer highly enough.

A. Dark, dark brown, nearly black. An aggressive pour yielded a small amber head that retreats to a minimal film. No laces.
S. Chocolate, coffee, neutral oak, dark roasted malts all at noticeable levels. Hints of vanilla. Mild aroma.
T. The taste follows the nose consistently. A noticeable bitterness, not at all sweet. Major notes of coffee, dark malts, neutral oak, and some hops. No booze. A moderately bitter ale.
M. Moderately smooth, moderate carbonation, medium body.
O. Very balanced and consistent. Excellent. Highly recommended.
