an awesome combination of extras in this special version of yeti. i think this base beer lends itself so well to cool adjuncts like this, its robust and defined, but not sweet or overly heavy to the extent that it takes a ton of something added in to taste it. i think the maple and the pecan are both relatively subtle in this, but thats part of the appeal for me. the maple is there for sure in the nose, maple syrup. the good stuff, sticky and rich amber, woodsy and wintery and warming, amazing with the coffee character from the dark roasted barley in here, it fits in so well. the pecans dont have much of a nose, maybe somewhat more of a toasted profile than i get in the original, but its not obviously pecan until i taste it. the maple and the pecan surprisingly dont taste like pie in the beer, they kind of stay separate, well as they fit together, they retain their own identities. the nuts are awesome with all the body, they are earthy, a little sweet, and really give some incredible depth to this. the maple lingers on the finish but isnt too much, and there is enough bitterness from the dark grain to balance it. lots of coffee character there at the finish too, and such a smooth body! a really fine version of this, i could tolerate both the maple and the pecans being amplified a bit, but their mellow nature makes this as drinkable as the original. delicious, well executed, and overall another killer variant of yeti!
