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.

Simply delicious!! Dark brown head that I’ve come to love in all yeti versions. If you like any other yeti you’ll live this one.

I could not say enough about this beer. If you are one of the privileged few to wrap your lips around this amazing beer then do not hesitate! An instant favorite of mine. Taste/feels like a different version of Southern Tier Choklat. Drinks like a chocolate fudge brownie, hint of coffee flows through, the cayenne is very mellow and almost undetectable, the after taste of the oak/whiskey taste coats your whole mouth as the beer goes down. The sweetness is perfect and not overdone. Alcohol taste is well blended. Wow. Very thick body and mouth feel but not too thick that its off-putting. This one went down easy for me and was an absolute pleasure from start to finish! This is one bold, complex and amazingly well done beer once again from The Great Divide.

I love this beer. One of my new favorites. Pouring the beer it is dark black color. As soon as you pop the cap off you can smell the chocolate aroma pouring out of the bottle. You get a strong chocolate taste when you first drink it. The aftertaste you get a string spice and malty taste. Overall I would give this beer a 10 out of 10. I love great divide brewing company. Working at Tipsy’s now. I am glad I can experience these

Aroma of dark chocolate and roast hops. Appears black with a very deep brown head. Tastes like dark chocolate with a with oak finish. Very thick feel but it doesn’t linger uncomfortably. A truly amazing stout.

Wow. So Good. Apperance: Jet black 1/4 finger of carmel color head. Aroma: Chocolate strong, milk chocolate and dark chocolates, coffee, a little oak. Not as much as I would expect. A little vanilla. Taste: initial chocolates right up front and throughout. The oak taste is in the end, but the chocolate is so strong I didn’t get any alcohol tastes. Overall: If you like the Yeti series, you’ll like this one. Complex, but extremely good.

Dark and chocolatey. One of the best readily available stouts out there. Never a disappointment.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2013 Pours pitch black with a small light brown ring. Smells of chocolate and hints or roast. Taste is strong chocolate with hints of bitterness. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Great Divide Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout finishes with some mild lingering sweetness.
