COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Cybercat (5119) - Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2010
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.

portableparty (2281) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2010
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!

PorterPounder (7332) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bottle. Tar black pour, dark mocha colored thick head that leaves nice lacing. Fresh fragrant aroma with nice baker’s chocolate accents and a bit of fresh black dirt earth. Bold flavor with loads of dark chocolate goodness, some espresso and a does of rich black earth. Hint of the wood if you really try. Mouthfeel is thick and rich. Very enjoyable.

arminjewell (9256) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2010
Pours deep black with fluffy brown lacing head. Aroma is big chocolate, roast, smoke, vanilla, and oak. Taste up front is big bitter chocolate, coffee leading into some smoke, vanilla, oak, and roasted malt that dries the finish with a bit of heat from the peppers. Nicely made brew, complex, lots of layers, and drinkable.
