Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Bottled on 3/7/12. Poured into a schooner.

A - A dark opaque black with a rich dark tan head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing.

S - As with any quality RIS, the chocolate and coffee poke through with the most vigor, followed by some sweet caramel and a bit of dark fruits.

T - Follows the nose well expect the progression starts quite sweet and turns bitter as the brew finishes. The bitterness is not necessarily bad, just not to my personal taste for the style. A bit of vanilla adds some complexity.

M - Rich smooth velvet like complexion. Carbonation is light, suiting the style, yet I cannot seem to notice the bitterness toying with the crispness. Again, not ruining the beer my any means just against my preference.

O - The bitterness is a high for a beer of this style and frankly is it not particularly to my liking. That said, this is a fantastic brew that I will never refuse should the occasion arise.

12 Oz bottle poured into a pint glasss
Dated August 25 2011 (10 months old)

A- Pours motor oil black with a quarter finger brown head. An intimidating looking stout. Nice alcohol legs.

S- I get big wiffs of chocolate, roasted malts, toffee and coffee. A smokey and roasty smelling stout with some dark fruity esters.

T- A big bitter chocolate flavor and feel up front. The beer follows up with a huge roasted, smokey flavor that really coats the mouth. A bitter and aged hop profile. A little toffee and caramel but this is a very roasty, chocolatey brew.

M- This is bitter for a stout. Leaves behind a smokey,burnt and sticky aftertaste. Has a silky smooth texture.

O- Awesome stout, I has a younger one and I got a lot of hop flavor which was old and I didn't think it complemented the beers other qualities. The hop flavors have worn off and this beer has come into its own. I'm looking forward to trying out some of the other versions.
