4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I saved this bottle for several months to share with my brother for when he came into town. I must say that it lived up to my lofty expectations. Pours very black with an almost reddish looking, dark tan full head. Aroma is robust and impressive. It contains plenty of chocolate to go along with oak, licorice, vanilla, and coffee. The taste is very rich chocolate, and lots of it. Perhaps like chocolate cake, however with some coffee and vanilla mixed in. Despite how much chocolate is in here, somehow this really isn’t sweet. And that might be the best part of all with this one. Bitter, especially at the end. Full bodied, as one would expect, with an oily texture. Subtle, yet noticeable carbonation. Alcohol content hides itself well. This certainly doesn’t feel like its as strong as it is. Altogether, this has just about everything that you could hope for in a big beer. Being tasty, well made in every respect, potent without hitting hard, you will really impress most everyone by pouring one of these.

Yup, I believe....poured from the bottle. Thick soapy head lingers and clings. Big nose full of chocolate caramel and coffee. Call me nuts, but I find a red licorice in there somewhere. First bite is smooth creamy and sweet. The palate follows the nose. The finish is pleasing. Delicious. Yum

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout - Espresso Oak Aged ) Bottle 650 ml, acquired through a trade, can’t remember with who, thanks anyway! BB February ’15, served into a snifter, ABV 9.5%
Pours a thick, black coloured beer, with a tall and thick dark brown head, with very good retention, leaving heavy lacing on the glass as it collapses.
Aroma of vanilla, light alcohol, plenty of coffee, wood, roasted malts as it warms up.
Intense taste with vanilla, less coffee than the aroma but still there, lots of chocolate now, light roasted malts, hints of the alcohol, mocha.
Thick body with soft carbonation.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Draft. My new all-time top beer. Very similar to the regular Yeti Stout, but with a subtle addition of oak flavors, making an already top beer into an exquisite creation. Sweet, strong coffee beer. It doesn’t get any better than this.

Tasted from draft. Pours black with dark brown head. Excellent coffee aroma with some dark chocolate. Taste is similar to aroma. Big time coffee with dark chocolate and some caramel and toffee. Pretty full bodied. Not too drying on the palate. Definitely one of the best coffee stouts

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a tan, big, creamy head that stays long and leaves a lot of lacing. Proper coffee aroma, like pushing your nose down a coffee grinder, fresh roasted espresso beans, strong coffee, oak, dark chocolate. Low carbonated, very creamy and slightly bitter, rough, chewy mouthfeel, full body. The flavor is deep and complex, oily espresso beans, oak, vanilla, marshmallow. Finish bitter with espresso beans and dark chocolate.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
650ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours pitch black with a dark brown head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is lots cold coffee, some espresso, roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, earthy, wood and a little tobacco. Flavour is slightly sweet and medium bitter. Full bodied, very smooth and oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is coffee, roasted malt, a little acidic from the coffee. Really good coffee stout.
