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.

Loved the Espresso version, so expectations were very high. Color is black, head is tan in color, but not as thick as expected. Some chocolate comes through in the nose, but not much. Tastes like a Imperial Stout should, but more coffee than chocolate. Did not enjoy as much as the Espresso.

SamTheBarrel (445) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2014
650ml brown bottle with a foil sealed top, poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is opaque brownish black with a medium sized thick brown head with good retention. Aroma of rye sourdough bread, dark chocolate, vanilla and muscovado. Flavours of dark chocolate, vanilla, raisins, muscovado, roasted malts and some oak wood notes. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Great Divide Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti is excellent overall, not overly sweet it has the character of bitter dark chocolate, also some heat from the cayenne.

Flaska från Systembolaget - doftar som en vanlig yeti fast med lite smygande chokladtoner. Mörk som natten med brunt skum. Tydliga brända toner likt en vanlig yeti men trevliga chokladtoner.

Beachmaster (124) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 6, 2014
On tap. Pours a deep brown, with a moderate tan head which lasts and leaves good lacing. Nose is cocoa and oak, and the taste is similar, with cocoa predominant, but notes of vanilla arise toward the finish. Very smooth, well-balanced. Just a touch of semi-sweet chocolate bitterness. Delicious.

bigda83 (204) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pours a very dark brown, small foamy brown head. Aroma was very nice with coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and woody notes. Taste was pretty close to the nose with the oak coming out and just a faint hint of the pepper. Very good beer and well done.

Is every yeti a 100? Just asking, had this on tap at the bocktown, nice place, rude beer this is. Some choco aroma on this one. Nice, attractive rolling pour on this baby. Taste of whisky laced choco thing. Strong and difficult. High alky beer. What else can be said? Accolades for the choco keeping this out of the basement.

Pours a very dark brown with a dark brown head leaving heavy lacing. oak aging is in the nose of this beer, with notes of chocolate. Very mild chocolate flavor with strong oak aging, slight astringent coffee flavor with a bit of alcohol at the end.
