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.

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 (5050) - 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 (2279) - 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 (7233) - 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.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Pitch black, dark tan head. Aroma is cacao nib, ash. Taste is oaky vanilla, big chocolate, roasty, almost a whiskey light note from the oak.

arminjewell (9237) - 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.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2010
(bottle) dark black with small medium brown head. Aroma of oak and dark chocolate. Flavor was all oak. I really need to stop trying oak-aged beers - all I ever taste is the oak barrel

Dogbrick (11327) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Firkin version at Barley’s 8th Annual Mini RAF (05/22/10): Pours black with a medium foamy light brown head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet chocolate, roasted malt and spice. Rich and smooth body with flavors of bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee. Some spicy hops notes in the background as well. The finish is chocolatey with a mildly peppery hops aftertaste. Enjoyable all around.

jseifer (62) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Smells like a chocolate cigar dipped in beer. Tastes ridiculously good. Pours a deep chocolate brown like The Ladies Man’s tuxedo. The smell is ridiculous. Taste is very smooth. Hints of raisins, chocolate, caramel, with a coffee finish. Drink this with no regrets.

BVery (9503) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Awesome beer. Very dark brown / opaque pour with a foamy light brown head. Milk chocolate and cayenne on the nose. Creamy mouthfeel. Taste is sweet, milk chocolate, and the cayenne really comes through - which actually works pretty well. Fun beer.
