on nitro draft, in a shaker pint glass

opaque black in color, thick off-white colored head. aroma is quite roasty. not as bold as the normal version of Yeti. Taste is fairly dry too - coffee, dark chocolate flavors. medium bodied.

Nitro Tap at Flynn's Mansfield

Nice creamy nitro waterfall head, black beer, typical lacing

Nose nitro out front, creamy, milk chocolate, little roast, caramel, biscuit, touch coffee and caramel

Taste creamy, milk chocolate, bitter roast and coffee, little dark choc cocoa, faint caramel, decent spicy hop bitterness, creamy lactose and oats, dried milk and chocolate. Finishes dry with a little bitter spicy hop, more cocoa and coffee lingering, nitro flavor too

Mouth is med bod, very creamy lush velvety, typical nitro carb creamy but a bit light on overall carbonation

Overall nice, glad to get a very drinkable yeti, like the flavor.

On nitro tap:
Pours opaque black in a poorly lit bar. The creamy head of nitro is tan/mocha and sits in its creamy state above the beer for a while.

Nose is wood as much as char, and roasted malt that has a little more bitterness than a dark chocolate.

A slightly astringent coffee meets my tongue, but the light feel adds a weak, watery aspect that does not completely define the feel. Soft and light, coffee and dark toasted bread doesn't come with very much sweetness.

A nice lower ABV stout, roasted malt with a little extra bitter kick (mildly woody) results in a solid offering.

Great beer nitro perfect smooth like a lighter version of yeti. My only gripe for it being light it doesn't have much sweetness mostly burnt sugars and licorice.

On nitro tap at Great Divide Barrel Bar

A: Pours cascading dark brown with a creamy light brown head that hangs around and laces nicely.

S: Good and roasty, hints of chocolate and coffee, and some toffee sweetness.

T: Roasted malt, milk chocolate, mild coffee, touch of burnt toast, and toffee sweetness.

M: Medium body, mild carbonation, creamy smooth.

O: Nice way to get your feet wet into the Yeti family.

Very smooth on tap. It's a nitro beer. Velvet stout is a great many because I would describe the texture as such, velvet. Medium bodied. You get the coffee notes in there for sure. Nothing overbearing.
