4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Pitch black body with the darkest shade of brown on a head that I’ve ever seen. Darker than the words Yeti on the label.
Aroma: Big espresso with chocolate with a touch of pine and earth.
Taste: Huge espresso throughout. Like chewing espresso beans. Slightly piney overlays with just a touch of chocolate. The espresso is bitter and pungent. Hints of oak tannins linger with espresso.
Palate: Medium to thick bodied, mild carbonation.
Overall: This is balls to the walls espresso in a great way. Avoid this if you aren’t a fan of coffee, but if you are then you’ll want to gulp this down. Very nice.

Motor oil color with dark head. Sweet roasty malt aroma. Well balanced sweet toasty malt profile followed by notes of chocolate, with a slightly bitter coffee finish. Low alcohol warmth. Really comes into its own at warmer temperatures.

Bu en bouteille de 66.6cl, couleur pétrole très très noire et mousse marron , odeur très grillé intense, au goût c’est très café, mais vu que c’est une bière vieillie, je pense qu’elle était un peu passé on a l’impression que je buvais un café un peu trop fort craqué après être resté longtemps après l’avoir coulé, c’est très costaud car une fin de bouche fumé, très intense...

Just had this beer in Stockholm. It is amazing. Great Divide is my favorite brewery, from wonderful Denver, in the great state of Colorado. This beer is in itself a stout superior to most other (regular Yeti is amazing), but with the espresso adding to the impressive instense roasty malt, the great hop blend and, well, I think there’s vanilla here? I can only imagine this beer being served with a hearty English breakfast and working really well. What more can I say? I want more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with high longlasting head. Nose is chocolate, coffee (obviously), vanilla, hints if booze and roasted malts. Taste is tart chocolate, coffee and black malt bitterness. Body is full but maybe a bit to much carbonation. Great beer but I think it would improve with age. Sadly, almost no character from the oak.
