4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Opened to make my 200th rating a bit more special. Bottle. Pours black with lovely brown head that unfortunately disappears quickly. Aroma is chocolate, but also hops, roast and a bit of wood and crust. Flavor is cocoa powder, dark chocolate, bit of malt, bit of hops, bit of wood. It is bitter, but there is not a significant bitterness in the aftertaste. I really like how the cocoa and chocolate are absolutely present in the taste and aroma but do not make it a chocolate beer by any means. Alcohol is not present in the taste, but it warms you nicely going down your throat. Excellent beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml brown bottle with a foil sealed top, poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is opaque brownish black with a medium sized thick brown head with good retention. Aroma of rye sourdough bread, dark chocolate, vanilla and muscovado. Flavours of dark chocolate, vanilla, raisins, muscovado, roasted malts and some oak wood notes. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Great Divide Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti is excellent overall, not overly sweet it has the character of bitter dark chocolate, also some heat from the cayenne.

Flaska från Systembolaget - doftar som en vanlig yeti fast med lite smygande chokladtoner. Mörk som natten med brunt skum. Tydliga brända toner likt en vanlig yeti men trevliga chokladtoner.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap. Pours a deep brown, with a moderate tan head which lasts and leaves good lacing. Nose is cocoa and oak, and the taste is similar, with cocoa predominant, but notes of vanilla arise toward the finish. Very smooth, well-balanced. Just a touch of semi-sweet chocolate bitterness. Delicious.

Pours a very dark brown, small foamy brown head. Aroma was very nice with coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and woody notes. Taste was pretty close to the nose with the oak coming out and just a faint hint of the pepper. Very good beer and well done.

Is every yeti a 100? Just asking, had this on tap at the bocktown, nice place, rude beer this is. Some choco aroma on this one. Nice, attractive rolling pour on this baby. Taste of whisky laced choco thing. Strong and difficult. High alky beer. What else can be said? Accolades for the choco keeping this out of the basement.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great looking beer. Very deep, brown appearance with frothy, chocolate head. Aroma is chocolate and oak, but could be stronger. Taste is lots of chocolate up front, but this beer is more complex than just chocolate. Earthy leather, oak, and booze throughout. Lots of sweet sugar and some vanilla. The carbonation is a bit strong, but overall a really good bear.
