An onslaught of the senses. It starts with big, roasty malt flavor that gives way to rich caramel and toffee notes. YETI gets its bold hop character from an enormous quantity of American hops.

Had at The Publick House in Boston, kudos for having this. Although apparently it should almost be expected at this place.

Yeti poured black, with a creamy head, dissapating to a film on top after a little.

Nose gave off the imperial stout norms, with hickory overtones and a type of tangy sauce.

Taste gave me a chocolaty wash with dark malt presence. The bottle indicates 75 IBU's...this is not fully detected, however.

Mouthfeel was average.

Overall, I have to say was a bit of a disappointment. Not that it was bad, but I expected more from this highly hyped beer. That being said, though, I can not find anything wrong with it. I suppose it's almost in the higher end of it's genre, but still lacking somewhat in complexity. Would try again.
