The Old Yale Brewing Company is well known for their Sasquatch Stout but they have inverted their direction and called upon the Sasquatches distant cousin to brew the Yeti White Stout. This relatively new style of beer is picking up steam as a big bodied, light coloured beer style. As Old Yale puts it, “light colour, dark intentions”. Pouring this beer from the bomber bottle it is a colour of light golden-amber and has a thin finger of head. The aroma is strong with coffee tones in an intense and rich way. On the nose, coffee is up front along with a big peat tone. Tasting the beer the coffee again takes the main stage along with the peaty tones. The initial hit of coffee flavour is big and intense and the peat adds a kick that is reminiscent of sipping a finger of smokey scotch. This does mellow though and on the finish a light vanilla and chocolate tone comes through in a fairly balanced way. All of this is happening with a low carbonation level and a light booziness on the tongue. The beer is very polarizing between the beginning and finish but if you like coffee flavour and a peaty drink then you will not be disappointed.
