4.08/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottled 16 Jul 13

Pours ebony with 2 fingers of mocha colored head. Superior lacing & head retention

S: Dark fruit, roastyness & boozeyness

T: Roastyness, charcoal, cocoa & molasses up front. Chocolate, roastyness, dryness & carob as this warms, a little bit of iron & raisin. Finishes roasty, dry, with carob, figs & currants & a whisper of boozeyness & smokeyness. plus leafy hops

MF: Chewy, dryness & slight carbonation, nice smoothness

Super drinkability, don't like this much as some of the iterations, but damn tasty, just the same. Would certainly buy again, will revisit during the winter if possible

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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.
