650 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a thick, inky, virtually black dark brown with lasting brown head. Aroma is dark roasty malts, some oaky barrel, molasses. Flavour is very roasty coffee, molasses, dark chocolate and solid oakiness. Fine, fairly lively carbonation. Impressive.

Pour is black. Smells of chocolate and toffee. Tastes of very robust oak, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, with a hoppy finish. Every time I have a different version of the Yeti they seem to somehow get better. Another delicious Yeti from Great Divide.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black. Little foamy beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, dried cherries and currants, caramel, and carbon. Flavor has a strong burnt roasted barley flavor. Rich mocha latte and sweetened condensed milk. Thick, almost syrupy body. Almost chewy. Good for a cold night.

Brief write-up. Itís a Yeti variant, so it will obviously be top-notch, and indeed it is. Still, I kind of feel that the only real influence the oak makes is an increase of finishing dryness - which also increases harshness a bit. Really, thatís the only criticism; itís not quite as excellent as the regular Yeti.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Perhaps the darkest head I have seen yet. A completely opaque beer, even as I tip this in my goblet to the edge and hold it up to the large fluorescent lights in the ceiling. There is a green hop aroma but surprisingly no oak, nor any aroma associated with a beer that has been aged for anytime in any type of wooden barrel. The viscosity is thicker than most IS and the lacing is impressive but the taste and aroma are strictly standard for the style. The green hop bite is mellowed with the aging. It is a very nice beer, the whole experience is very smooth, especially for a 9.5% and I can detect no off parts to the recipe. But the question is, is a $10 22oz bottle better than any 6-pack IS that you can buy for $15 or lessÖ..the answer is for me, no.

Bottle. Ultra dark with tan head. Bitter and oaky to the tee. Not a good choice for the go nutz for donuts challenge.

One year aged bottle from the local bottle shop. Nice oaky aroma with a deep black pour. Oily mouth feel. Good sipper.

Pours black with brown head and lacing. Aroma of licorice, leather, dark chocolate, vanilla and wood. Taste is bitter dry of dark chocolate, coffee and licorice. Oily texture and very enjoyable.
