4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black as night, with a brown head. Aroma of lots of coffee, some chocolate, slight vanilla, and a little wood. Big coffee flavour, light sweetness, harsh bitter finish. Thick body. Good, but I like plain Yeti better.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black with almost no head. Huge oaky aroma of mainly dark chocolate, followed by coffee, roasted bread and maybe a hint of vanilla. Not as explosive on the tongue as I was expecting but incredibly velvety and smooth. Delicious imperial stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aged three years: Smells roasty, chewable, with an almost spicy pepper nose. In the mouth itís almost smoky, spicy, and much like mellow, wet espresso. Itís gorgeous and so soft that it totally doesnít even register with the palate... it goes straight to the brain, heart, veins, and nervous system. Itís fantastic.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber shared by kevinsenn. Good gods, what an aroma. Appearance is motor oil black. Taste is strongly sweet up front with an immediate regression to coffee. Coffee sits on your tongue and doesnít leave. Pretty good, Great Divide.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ home. Profumo pazzesco di caffŤ della moka. sentori tostati, affumicati, ed il classico aroma della salamoia delle olive. mette in atto la salivazione solo annusandola. ha anche un bel bouquet fruttato ed alcolico, come di Tia Maria. Colore nero impenetrabile, sembra fluida quando la si versa. la schiuma importante fine e cremosa color cappuccino. Gusto pieno, avvolgente. Inizialmente si avvertono caffŤ e liquerizia, poi il dolce alcolico, solo sul finale rilascia líamaro legnoso ed affumicato. Non si puÚ smettere di berla. Corpo pienissimo, finale lungo dolce/amaro.

Bomber into a snifter. Almost black with a creamy mocha head that dissipates into a thin cap. Fairly minimal lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, espresso, roasted malt, oak/vanilla and maybe a touch of dried cherries. The taste is moderately sweet with a lot of the same flavors that come through in the aroma. The hops makes an appearance in the finish and add a touch of bitterness and dryness; pleasant, nothing overwhelming. Body is moderate to full and is smooth and silky. Great beer.
