COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Itís official, you can now have Yeti with breakfast.

Great Divide Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout pours obsidian with a camel brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla...nice mouthfeel with tastes of roasted malt and raisin. I donít get much advance of espresso even compared to the íplainí oak-aged Yeti. Nice beer, though.

Poured from 22oz., thanks to nickd717. Darker brown with medium tan head. Nose of dark espresso with a little milk, oak, and some chocolate thrown in. Taste was right there also, reminded me of a boozy chocolate milk mixed with coffee - iced mocha maybe. Overall very tasty, a good breakfast beer.

22oz bottle thanks to nickd717. Black with a tan head. Oak, coffee, cocoanut, and hoppy aroma. Complex, but just a touch too much spicy oak chip character. The flavor is smoother than the aroma, with some vanilla and spice from the oak, and a bitter, roasty finish. Medium on the malty sweetness with a nice coffee balance that is really the highlight, but the oak provides a weird counterpoint that still holds it back a little. I like this much better than oak aged yeti, but the oak is really the problem. The coffee is actually quite nice in this, but great divide just sucks at any subtlety when oak-aging beers, and the oak holds back what could be a great coffee stout.

Bottle courtesy nickd717, glad you could make it! Pours darkest brown with a fluffy beige head. Aroma is coconut from the wood aging with roasted coffee and dark chocolate and a surprising amount of sprucey, piney hops peeking through. Flavor is toasty and chocolatey with a big roasted coffee influence. Woody and bitter. This is clearly the superior version of Yeti.

Bottle via trade from ben4321. Thanks, Ben. This was a great one, possibly the best of the Yetis Iíve had. Pours jet black with a nice tan head and some good lacing. Aroma is intense with lots of coffee, chocolate, and roast. Flavor is excellent: espresso, roast, oak, and milk chocolate, melding extremely well, with none of the flavors too heavy. Medium-full on the palate with lots of coffee bitterness and some hop bitterness as well. Pretty drinkable for an imperial coffee stout. As rating #1420 for me, RateBeer played a "Bag of Weed" video from "Family Guy" after I entered my rating. Nice touch.

Pours a pitch blackwith a big tan head... Aroma of milk chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and vanilla... Flavor profile matches nicely, roasted malt, vanilla coffee bourbon chocolate alcohol... Medium full body fades to a finish that is complex but not entirely cohesive...

Pure black color. Aroma is full of coffee and chocolate, with some malts, vanilla, and nutty undertones. Flavor is of big time espresso beans! There is also some chocolate malts, roasty flavors, and slight vanilla. Leaves a lot of coffee in the aftertaste. I might have to go to the bathroom after drinking this one.

DArk brown pour thin dark tan head. Simple but intense aromas of chocolate thick heavy cream with hints of that bitter roastyness from the espresso . Flavor follows suit dark coffe roast smooth silk cream. Hints of booze linger on the mouth. So warm and yummy

Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma holds definite coffee/espresso, dark chocolate, cream, roasted malt, and a bit of charred wood and chalk. Flavor is on another echelon from the smell; tons of coffee grounds, roasted malt, big cream notes, wood, and plentiful chocolate. The palate is absolutely insane; massive roast notes, but also that great chocolate and cream sweetness. Yet another variant of Yeti, and yet another ridiculously good brew.
