3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown black from the bomber with a thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma light on roasted malts, slight coffee, and belgian fruitiness. Taste is yeti stout with a slight fruit note, and an odd lingering finish on tongue. An interesting mix of styles, nice but odd.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks to jackl. It pours very dark brown, with a thin light beige head. The nose is tire, roasted malt, toffee, plastic, dark fruit, cherry and blueberry. The taste is charcoal, roasted malt, chocolate, sweet-sour aspect, tangy fruit, grapefruit, cola and earth. Medium-full body and fine, prickly carbonation. Alcohol is pretty obvious. Interesting, but I definitely prefer regular yeti.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ CBC’s First Birthday Party. The pour’s deep brown with hardly any head. The nose is vanilla and charred wood, some marshmallow and honeyed peanuts. The taste is light honeyed apples and spicy chili chocolate. Some hints of lactose and roasted coffee. Medium body, soft and pretty easy to drink. Overall, decent. Not my favorite in the generally phenomenal Yeti series...

Pours opaque black. Combination of coffee and roasted malts along with dry fruits, yeast and honey. Combines my two favorite styles together.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the CBC 1st Birthday Party, London. I think Jack brought this bottle, so thanks. Pours deep and dark with a sturdy, beige-brown foam. Moderate roast in the nose with suggestions of chocolate. Flavor is not overly sweet. It has lots of dusty roast, cocoa, some dark candies. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Nice finish, lightly warming with more dark chocolate, dry and dusty roasted malts, faint earth and dark fruits. A solid beer and a decent twist on the normal Yeti.

Not much nose but a darn nice lookin beer. Too sweet for my taste but my partner thinks otherwise. A decent representation for great divide, but an unfortunate lowering of the formidable yeti stout series.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black colour with a beige head. Coffee and chocolate aroma. This beer is close to a BIPA. A fine balanced fruity sweetness. Hints of hops. Chocolate and coffee. Warming but not dominant alcohol. Lovely beer.
