Bottle. Bottled May 2010, imbibed at just over 1 month old. Pours black with a thin brown head. Light roasty aroma with some piney hops and lighter notes of semi-sweet chocolate. The flavor has a good balance of roasted malts and piney hops, and lighter chocolate notes. Some coffee comes out as it warms. Really good. I’d imagine that in a few months the hop profile with subside, allowing the chocolate to come more to the forefront. thagr81_us (175) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Vintage: 2009 Served from tap into an imperial pint. Pours a deep black with a tan one finger head that subsides to minimal. Maintains excellent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of malt and chocolate. The flavor was of malt, coffee, and a chocolate followthrough. It had a medium feel on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this is by far the best Yeti I have had. I will compare it to a 2010 bottle I have in the fridge right now in the near future for a comparison. This one will be hard to top though...

22oz bottle. Pours black with a a nice brown head. Nose is roasty, chocolate, coffee, some hops and spices as well. Flavor is roasty malts, chocolate, raisin, and a hint of chilli. Finish is nice and roasty with the chilli flavor lingering. Full bodied and an awesome beer. dimenhetfield (2554) - , Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Traveled to Orlando to get this one at Knightly Spirits and thank god I did. The pour out of the bottle was just super sexy. Super dark with a brownish foam head. The aroma was oaky, with touches of roasted nuts. It was incredibly smooth and easy to drink. It also had a nice bitterness to it that hits you right on the back of the jaw.

Midnight black pour from bottle. Taste is smokey, with notes of bitter chocolate. Finish is warm, but not overpowering. Another solid effort from Great Divide. Cheers!!

22oz bottle from Knightly Spirits. Pours red/black with a good sized brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, burnt wood, tobacco, coffee. Flavor is a blast of warming alcohol, not rough, but really nice. Burnt chocolate coffee dominates, raisins, and some other dark fruits. And finishing in some amazing chili flavor. Full bodied and as much warmth as any beer ive had...i could sit naked on an iceberg and this beer would warm me up. Fantastic. This beer blew me away. Yeti fucking rocks.

Pours a deep opaque sable that is just a whisker above black with a thick, persistent tan head. Rich mocha aroma is smoky and slightly sweet with a hint of toffee. Mouth-filling flavor is rich and smoky with tones of unsweet chocolate, fine coffee, molasses and toffee; it is sweet but not cloying and - WHOA! - has a little kick from the cayenne pepper that gets your attention without overwhelming the rest of the flavor. Lively, restless texture is sharp and strongly tingly. It leaves a nice chocolate and molasses finish, while the pepper nips at the tongue. Strongly recommended to stout lovers - and those who like beer that is different. portableparty (2384) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Pour is black like oil and a very dark tan head. Aroma is rich malt and dark coco and soy. Taste is creamy chocolate and hop, and I still get subtle coffee along with dark fruit and nuts. Palate is full rich and creamy with a dry finish. Another solid Yeti from Great Divide! PorterPounder (8286) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bottle. Tar black pour, dark mocha colored thick head that leaves nice lacing. Fresh fragrant aroma with nice baker’s chocolate accents and a bit of fresh black dirt earth. Bold flavor with loads of dark chocolate goodness, some espresso and a does of rich black earth. Hint of the wood if you really try. Mouthfeel is thick and rich. Very enjoyable.
