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. Iím glad Iíve saved a few in the beercellar :)

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Ariel. Black with a brown head. Aroma of roast, coffee and a dark fruit note. Sweet roasty flavor with coffee, a bit of chocolate, a bit of dark fruits, an oatmeal note and a finish with a bitter note and a light alcoholic note. Full-bodied.

October 12, 2014 bottle probably from AV3. Black pour with nice head that lasted. Aroma was coffee, roasted malt, oats, some chocolate and hops. Taste was consistent with aroma, but very strong on the roast and slight bitter finish. Oatmeal gave it a smooth and creamy texture.

12oz glass on tap. Beautiful brew on tap. Aroma is super-complex, I canít wait to drink it! Taste is awesome, the oatmeal does soften the roasty taste of the yeti. It is still a beast, but yeah, itís a little more tame than its cousins, and in my opinion, itís better for it.

In the aroma, I can smell the raisins right away. I am also getting some oatmeal, a lot of roast and booze. Slightly hoppy aroma, not much different from other Yetis. Appearance is black with a clingy tan head. Tastes like Yeti Light - I could chug this. Sweeter than other Yetis because of the oats, the raisins make a slight appearance in the after taste. Hoppy and roasty finish. I like this one more than regular and oak aged Yeti, but not as much as chocolate. Overall a very good beer.

Quite solid, but a bit boozy, and could definitely benefit from aging. Not sure if Iím getting the "raisins" part either in the flavor. But as far as imperial stouts go, this one is indeed good.

Keg @ Mekong. Deep brown with a small head. Cocoa, oatmeal cookies. Rich and sweet. Flavor is similar. Pillowy oatmeal. Grain. Charred cocoa and dark chocolate. Sickly burnt sugar on the finish. Oily and sweet. Full. Definitely not my favorite of the series.

On tap, poured into a snifter. Raisin, sweet syrupy caramel, oatmeal, and a light chocolate chip touch strike the nose. It pours a deep, dark, opaque black-brown with a soapy brown head. A thin, uneven island is left on the surface which eventually reduces further to just some wisps with a thin soapy ring. A good amount of even, small-bubble lace is left behind. The taste is a medium high bitter with a medium sweet. The beer is thick and chewy with a full body and a light, fizzy carbonation. Flavors of coffee bean, oatmeal, raisin, dark cherry and a mild citrus all come through. If finishes spicy, clean, and fresh with some pine-like qualities and it leaves a clean coffee aftertaste.
