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. The pour was a deep dark black with an average (1-2 finger) medium brown creamy head that slowly diminished, down to a large puddle with a small collar and offered up some outstanding streaky lacing. The aroma was robust to say the least of a roasted dark bread malt and a strong leathery yeast with notes of dark bitter chocolate, dark roasted coffee, vanilla, a touch of molasses and a mild woody scent. The taste was quite roasty with a nice malty bitter sweet flavor that had a note of bitter chocolate and a bit of molasses from the start, with a big dose of roasted coffee and a slight alcohol presence towards the end. The flavor lasted an extremely long time following the swallow, with a bold mocha coffee taste and a slight alcohol warming sensation that left a bit of heat that hit the back of the throat. Mouthfeel was full in body with a smooth, dry, oily texture and a soft carbonation. Overall this was one fantastic brew, with a nice bold coffee/chocolate flavor with just a little heat left lingering on...

Lovely Brown foam top, sweet chocolate taste, with a slightly creamy texture and a bitter finish. Top quality all through the beer.

SamTheBarrel (452) - 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 (129) - 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.

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.
