Had during Brewvival 2012! Served from cask into a Brewvival sampler imperial pint. Poured a massively dark brown with a minimal tan head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, wood, raspberry, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and raspberry. It had a heavy feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. The raspberry aspect here really added a nice touch to an already solid brew. Adding that nice bit of sweetness to help balance out all of the roastiness that the Yeti is known for. However, with this being said, it did cover up a lot of the subtle flavors that makes Yeti a great brew. Really glad I got the opportunity to give this one a try as it was quite enjoyable. I could definitely see myself getting into A LOT of trouble with this one. Tick.

Cask at Brewvival 2012

Pours a dark brown with a slight reddish hue and a creamy ivory head. Big aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and raspberries. Big and malt-heavy, with just the faintest of raspberry flavor. I was definitely expecting more. Smooth and creamy, with the typical Yeti full mouthfeel. Overall an underwhelming and forgettable take on a classic.
