Bottled Dec 20, 2010. Tulip glass.

A: Pours oily, viscous black with a few centimeters of dark brown, red tinted foam. The head vanishes within a minute or so, leaving behind a ring. So-so retention and leaves a few streaks of lacing.

S: Huge, rich roastiness and faintly fruity espresso. Wow, this is a big one. Also features some dark cocoa, chocolate, woody/vegetal/earthiness underneath, some sour/acidity, but is dominated by espresso and roast.

T: Loads of espresso, roastiness, finishing with a lightly sour coffee + bitter aftertaste and lingering on the palate. I'm impressed that the coffee is still present after a year of age.

M: A mouthcoating full body and light carbonation. Alcohol is hidden.

O: A little abrasive and fatiguing to drink alone. On the other hand, it's big enough to stand up to a rich dessert and has the right flavors to complement.

When poured from the bottle the beer pours a very dark chocolate brown with a nice light brown head. The scent is all rich roast coffee with a hint of chocolate malt. The taste is coffee though not as intense as the nose would indicate. The mouthfeel is full and rich but again not quite up to expectations. Overall this is a very tasty beer and I am glad I tried it. While the alcohol level stated on the bottle is high it is extremely well integrated and not at all noticeable when drinking this brew. The carbonation is also well integrated.

A: Pitch black, opaque with hardly any brown visible. Big, frothy mocha colored head. Caked on lacing with foamy film.

S: Smells a good deal like the base Yeti, but with slightly bitter espresso and oak added. Chocolate and roasted malts.

T: Rich espresso coffee in the forefront with chocolate, oak, roasted malts, molasses and dark fruits.

M: Rich and velvety.

O: This is a very good beer, but to be honest, I like the regular Yeti better. Just like the regular though, the alcohol is incredibly well hidden making this extremely drinkable.
