We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. A Yeti for summer? Hell yes.

6/18/10. Bomber into a snifter. The pour is jet, opaque black with a huge, creamy, thick, oily brown head that looks speckled with cocoa powder. The aroma is dark chocolate powder with a hint of sour and a good roasty kick. The flavor starts sweet and chocolatey, hints at a touch of sour, and finishes huge and roasty bitter. A nice spectrum and tingles spiciness at the very end and makes for a pretty yummy experience.

Bottle. Bottled May 2010, imbibed at just over 1 month old. Pours black with a thin brown head. Light roasty aroma with some piney hops and lighter notes of semi-sweet chocolate. The flavor has a good balance of roasted malts and piney hops, and lighter chocolate notes. Some coffee comes out as it warms. Really good. I’d imagine that in a few months the hop profile with subside, allowing the chocolate to come more to the forefront.

Vintage: 2009 Served from tap into an imperial pint. Pours a deep black with a tan one finger head that subsides to minimal. Maintains excellent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of malt and chocolate. The flavor was of malt, coffee, and a chocolate followthrough. It had a medium feel on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this is by far the best Yeti I have had. I will compare it to a 2010 bottle I have in the fridge right now in the near future for a comparison. This one will be hard to top though...

Traveled to Orlando to get this one at Knightly Spirits and thank god I did. The pour out of the bottle was just super sexy. Super dark with a brownish foam head. The aroma was oaky, with touches of roasted nuts. It was incredibly smooth and easy to drink. It also had a nice bitterness to it that hits you right on the back of the jaw.

Midnight black pour from bottle. Taste is smokey, with notes of bitter chocolate. Finish is warm, but not overpowering. Another solid effort from Great Divide. Cheers!!

750 ml bottle from knightly, had this after the espresso yeti, couldn’t quite match up but this is still a great beer. chocolate aroma with a very clean woody smell. Pours a great black with a light brown head. looks good. Taste was great, strong chocolate taste, you can taste the alchool a bit more in this one. nice bitter finish. Strong mouth feel, fully balanced. Im a big fan of this brewery.

22oz bottle from Knightly Spirits. Pours red/black with a good sized brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, burnt wood, tobacco, coffee. Flavor is a blast of warming alcohol, not rough, but really nice. Burnt chocolate coffee dominates, raisins, and some other dark fruits. And finishing in some amazing chili flavor. Full bodied and as much warmth as any beer ive had...i could sit naked on an iceberg and this beer would warm me up. Fantastic. This beer blew me away. Yeti fucking rocks.

Pours a deep opaque sable that is just a whisker above black with a thick, persistent tan head. Rich mocha aroma is smoky and slightly sweet with a hint of toffee. Mouth-filling flavor is rich and smoky with tones of unsweet chocolate, fine coffee, molasses and toffee; it is sweet but not cloying and - WHOA! - has a little kick from the cayenne pepper that gets your attention without overwhelming the rest of the flavor. Lively, restless texture is sharp and strongly tingly. It leaves a nice chocolate and molasses finish, while the pepper nips at the tongue. Strongly recommended to stout lovers - and those who like beer that is different.

Pour is black like oil and a very dark tan head. Aroma is rich malt and dark coco and soy. Taste is creamy chocolate and hop, and I still get subtle coffee along with dark fruit and nuts. Palate is full rich and creamy with a dry finish. Another solid Yeti from Great Divide!
