3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Oily black with a deep brown head. Whiskey smoke and dark black fruit blend with the nutty roasted malts, a hint of vannila and pumpernickel. Medium to full bodied. Bitter black malt, bready with just a hint of whiskey and bitter chocolate. The finish is full and lingering. I remember enjoying this one more the last time had it, still a quality beer by all means but I was a little disapointed. I’ll have to give this one another try soon.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 This is another American Micro brewed wonder. An excellent RIP..right up there with Hoppp’n Frog Oatmeal RIP. Left Hands Oak agd RIP and Stones RIP. A big beer with incredible balance and hints of chocolate malt, with a subtle sweetness of vanilla, dark sugars, anise, expresso, and a hint of hops for balance. Great Job Great Divide!

Aroma is of milk chocolate, caramel, bourbon, slight notes of coffee and vanilla. surprisingly light on the alcohol for its abv. The appearance is blacker than the abyss of night. Head is a healthy brown upon pour that laces the glass Taste is the best part. Dark fruits, caramel, intense dark chocolate subtle hints of the Stranahans. As a friend would say " Tastes like a high class milky-way-whiskey!" Full body, slick texture with soft carbonation and a long pleasant finish. overall, I wish it was less costly but is still an amazing beer. Near perfect beer if weren’t for the $$$. 2011

YIKES it doesn’t get much better than this for this style. I’m a HUGE fan of the standard Yeti. Add in the Oak Aged process and a FANTASTIC beer becomes even better!
Big thick milky tone with an awesome hoppy finish. The Oak Aged process adds notes of vanilla. Superb beer. You owe yourself to try this if you like IPAs, Stouts, or Imperial Stouts!

Get ready for the yeti as this beer packs a punch and takes no prisoners. Well blended with the berrel aging and at 12..5% abv there is no wondering why people watch out for the yeti.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
pours motor oil black, aroma raisin/dark fruit with strong barrel/whiskey characters. taste is strong whiskey with ripe dark fruit upfront with a smokey finish. Its a great beer but my favorite is still original yeti.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The Barrel Aged Yeti pours midnight black with a dark mahogony head. Seriously, this stuff looks like motor oil.
Aromas of oak, fine tobacco, chocolate, coffee, and dried dark fruits pervade. This beer has quite a nose.
The woodsy oak flavor really comes through on this beer. This beer is smokey and rich with dark coffee and chocolate coming off strong. The dried dark fruits are still present, lurking in the background.
The mouthfeel is rich and sumptuous. Silky smooth with light carbonation.
Overall, this is a great beer. Definitely worthy of slow thoughtful sips. I couldn’t have a bunch of these as it is a very strong beer in every sense of the word.
