What the brewer says

“It starts with big, roasty malt fla­vor that gives way to rich caramel and tof­fee notes. Yeti gets its bold hops char­ac­ter from an enor­mous quan­tity of Amer­i­can hops.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Woody hops, with a slight hint of mint, roast malt. Her­bal (rose­mary, sage). Light al­co­hol and a bit of car­bonic acid bite when freshly poured (it fades af­ter the head has dropped a bit).” Fla­vor: “Herbs from the nose, along with a light onion fla­vor. Def­i­nite al­co­hol strength, even a bit hot. Co­coa pow­der–dusted dark truf­fle with a healthy level of cherry es­ter. Hops fla­vor is cit­rusy, mainly lemon and grape­fruit.” Over­all: “In­ter­est­ing hops choice given how much cherry and choco­late are de­rived from the malt and fer­men­ta­tion. It would be bet­ter if the roast was up and the her­bal char­ac­ter was toned down. Needs time to age.”
