Great beer. It pours dark black with a cherry cream colored head. Chocolate and rich malt hit the senses. The flavor is even better. Rich, bitter baker’s chocolate and coffee up front, then a smooth caramel at the swallow, followed by a slightly bitter blast to finish the sip. Very good beer!

Bottle, about one year old. Pours jet black with a fine tan head. Aroma of vanilla, oak, fruitiness, toast. Sweet up front, huge body, oak and roasty bitterness, chocolate, coffee, warmth. Like a nightcap for the winter. Bring it on, spring.

A classic beer, too bad I have to drive up to MA to buy it. Layer upon layer of dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Sweet and bitter, in similar proportions. Chewy, lingering, satisfying. The alcohol is boozy and warming, but not harsh at all. So freaking good.

Bomber in snifter. Beautiful black pour with a brownish red thin head with good lacing. Aroma is light coffee and dark chocolate with a taste to match. Really good one.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I love this beer. It pours dark black with a cherry cream colored head that leaves a lot of lace. Chocolate and rich malt hit the nose before you even raise the glass; itís like thereís something awesome in a nearby oven. The flavor is even better. Rich, bitter bakerís chocolate and coffee up front, then a smooth caramel at the swallow, followed by a slightly bitter blast to finish the sip. 9.5 ABV, but it isnít there in the flavor, itís hidden by all that smooth richness. Sweet beers often wear out my welcome before I finish a 22, but this one didnít. Either my taste is changing or this is just one of the best sweet beers Iíve ever had.

At the brew exchange with Taylor and Justin. Pours black cream, som head hat drops to lacing after 5 minutes. Aroma is espresso bean gram cracker burnt marshmallow malt, toasty, beautiful. Taste is roasted malt, barrel, dark chocolate, raspberry dark chocolate bar. Finish is medium and toasty.

On draft at Yogis. The roasted malt character and espresso bean aroma is strong and well balanced in this stout. The ABV is well masked in this smooth mother of an Imperial Stout. Great Divide's Yeti series never fails to impress and this is truly one of their best.

Nice!!!!! Dark roast coffee combined with dark chocolate. Looks and feels like WD-40. Hits all the notes it should. Alcohol is not hidden and very strait forward. Little on the pricey side. Very nice.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from 2010.
Pours black with a espresso coloured head.
"Musty" aroma with loads of dark chocolate and roasted malt, some liquorice.
Taste has dark chocolate, liqueur drenched raisins and plums, liquorice, loads of roasted malt, not very much coffee though. Might be the age.
Full body, low carbonation. Super smooth and soft mouth feel.
Long bitter, chocolatey after taste.
While a bit to expensive compared to regular Yeti, the variants are always a great treat!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2014 Bottle: Dark as hell; black, black, black, with a surprisingly voluptuous head for an imperial stout... Dark, leathery tan foam that chunks up nicely & lasts over half the glass. Aroma has lovely notes of bittersweet chocolate, cream, oily coffee beans, & intensely roasted malts... Beautiful undercurrent of sugary sweetness to balance the mild aromas of char & roast. Bittersweet cocoa is the first thing to hit the palate, followed closely by deep notes of fresh coffee. An epic battle between sweet dark chocolate morsels & roasted, oily coffee beans lasts from start to finish. A cup of rich, French pressed espresso mixed with a liquid Godiva dark chocolate bar. Faint touch of cream & a kiss of figs lingers in the after taste alongside the beans. Rich, chewy, creamy, lovely body on this one. Simply a delicious stout, for chocolate & coffee lovers alike. Couldnít get enough of this one.
