Long overdue review. Had this Yeti once on-tap long ago, finally getting around to revisiting/reviewing. Bottle was about 6 months old.
Black beer, tan head, good retenetion, some lace, etc. It's Yeti.
Lots of chocolate, roast, caramel in the nose.
Taste delivers big Hershey-type chocolate, has a fudgy brownie vibe. Nicely backed with caramel, roasted malts, some vanilla, some hops and oak. Not getting much of the cayenne pepper spice - it's Yeti, ya know?
Thick, smooth mouthfeel, a bit of booze but drinks pretty easy considering. Mouthfeel is always a Yeti highlight and this is no different.
Well it's Yeti and it's X-tra chocolatey. Since Yeti is already quite chocolatey in itself, this isn't really as outstanding as other variations (Espresso, Barrel Aged, regular Oak), but it's still a treat of a stout.

Bomber poured into a snifter
A- Pours pitch motor oil black. No light, no coloration. one finger of a brown head.
S- A little fruit in the nose. some dark fruits and some citrus as well. A moderate amount of chocolate. Theres a bit of the oak character as well. Still fairly hoppy.
T- Bitter up front, A lot of bitterness from the chocolate as well as the hops. The hop flavor has faded but is still somewhat present. Chocolate is this beers strongest flavor. There's a good bit of roasted malt as well as some caramel notes. Alcohol is well hidden. Oak flavor is subtle but only adds to the beer.
M- Smooth but a sipper never the less. Some alcohol warming. Bitter for a stout.
O- Great beer. Good take on the regular Yeti.
