Notes / Commercial Description:
Chocolate Cherry Yeti is the newest version in our revered Yeti Series. We’ve tweaked the hop bitterness for this special release and then added sweet and sour cherries and cacao. The roasty malt backbone of Yeti melds perfectly with the cherries and cacao to make this one smooth sipper. A Yeti in a cherry orchard can be a great thing

a predictably rad version of yeti, with a well integrated chocolate and cherry profile, but not too much of either, and not sweet at all. the cherry is subtle to me in the aroma, more robust in the flavor, slightly medicinal, but not sugary at all, just a little tartness which actually works well to cut some body and and heaviness of the base beer. i like that i can still taste original yeti first, we always seem to forget just how legendary and great this beer is, and its obvious here again. the chocolate is less than in the chocolate version by itself, but is a baking type dark cocoa thing which balances the fruit and works in seamlessly into the base beer. heavy roast and some bitterness to it, really dark side of malt here, a touch of molasses and caramel, but really balanced too. on the one hand i wish for more obvious cherry, but on the other, i like it being an accent rather than a lead dog. they could do just about anything to this beer and it would be awesome i have a feeling. a treat to get to have a number of these in a row...
