On tap at Old Man Raffertys in Hillsborough. Opaque black with 1/2 inch tan head, leaves lacing as it dissipates. Almost creamy viscosity with hints of dark chocolate, toffee. Nice bitterness balances the finish. Fully agree with 100-point rating. Delicious!

This beer is thick, delicious and satisfying. I’ve found very few to actually stand up next to this brew. Great Divide actually brews a chocolate Yeti, which I like even more. But the Whiskey Barrel aged Yeti is the best, if you can find it. It goes up to about 12%. Another brew that is very good is the Epic Big Bad Baptist.
