4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thick, black beer with a dark brown to beige, two finger head. Lacing on the glass when the head sinks down to a thin, brown layer.
Nose: Chocolate cream, vanilla, ice cream, honey, toffee, brown sugar, nuts, hops, coffee and of course the special "Great Divide" smell! I JUST LOVE IT!
Mouth: Full, great, big, complex body with a very small amount of carbonation. Coffee, dark roasted malt, espresso, ash, caramel malt and a lot of dark chocolate!
This is a MUST HAVE. I love it. I’m glad I’ve saved a few in the beercellar :)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
65 cl bottle @ home, bottled 24.06.2015. Rated on 03.10.2015
Vertical with basic Yeti, which got 4.0
Aroma has metallic tones, oat, licorice, chocolate and hops. A bit woody and dry. Flavour has grapefruity hops, smooth oaty notes, licorice. Alcohol is present but does not disturb. Hops are a bit disturbing here and make this a bit juice-like – I like my stout less juicy and more roasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black. Dark roast on nose, sweet soy sauce, dark chocolate, weak milky notes. Full bodied, soft smooth texture. Malty chocolate, soy in flavour. Feels a bit lifeless though. Just past bbe, if that has any impact. Good overall, just a bit less than expected.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Musta, hivenen runsaampi mutta reunoille vetäytyvä kohtalaisen kuohkea vaahto. Vetisehkö, hivenen leipäisä suuntuntuma suussasulavan liukas, makea, mietoa alkoholia, napakka suutuntuma. Jälkimakuna vetistä liukkautta ja mietoa alkoholia. Helpohko nautiskeluolut.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
65 cl bottle @ ISKTR V.
Pours jet black color with a large beige head. Quite grainy and oaty aroma, chocolate and vanilla and some spices. Sweet chocolaty flavor, some cocoa, faint potato notes I also found on Imperial Biscotti Break, subtle fruits too. Quite different from the base Yeti, a bit of a disappointment.

650ml bottle @ ISKTR
Pours pitch black with a small head. Aroma of roasty malts, licorice, coffee, chocolate, hints of oaty raisins. Taste is smooth, sweetish and roasty with some licorice, coffee, chocolate and oaty raisiny notes. Finish is smooth, heavy and sweetish with some roastiness, oatmeal, raisin and dark chocolate. Not as good as the regular Yeti.
