3.99/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
bottled 6/24/13, poured into Half Acre snifter.
Dark brown almost black body with a mocha head of impressive thickness, lacing, retention, and creaminess. Perfectly beautiful.
Smells of toasted oats, coffee, chocolate, slight raisin aroma, toffee, caramel.
Taste is certainly unique. Coffee and roasted malts up front, with sweetness from raisins, some strong caramel sweetness, bready finish with some bitterness and a lingering oaty taste.
Promising feel at first with creamy texture, but its overcarbonated body makes it rough and overpowers the flavors. Fairly full bodied with a decently chewy mouth and a dry finish.
Overall, the smell on this is really nice, and this had the potential to fantastic, but the taste is too raisiny and the body too carbonated. Still solid and enjoyed though.

From a 650 ml bottle (dated June 19, 2014) to a snifter.
A-The brew is opaque and nearly black. No light getting through here. The head is short, but retention is good and there is even a bit of lacing on the glass.
S-The aroma is rich and dense with dark chocolate, some creaminess, a light char-roasted flavor, as well as some raisin and prune. Bitterness is pretty high, but more from hop flavor than roasted or smoke.
T-The taste is similar to the smell. It is dense and opulent with dark, dried fruit (raisins and prunes), blueberry, some dark chocolate, and milky chocolate.The famous Yeti hop hit also creeps in among the malts. The finish is a touch rough and hot compared the opening with some alcohol burn.
M-The feel is medium to full body with mostly smooth carbonation of average strength for the style.
O-Ho hum, another Yeti variant and another great beer. The oats don't really come through on their own, but they add a noticeable smoothness and richness to the beer that is not there in the normal version. This beer also has more dark fruit than normal Yeti, as you might expect. All that smoothness falls off a bit on the finish, but this is still a very fine beer.
