UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Many offerings on draft and in bottle. Base Yeti is a solid stout and the oak, coffee treatment does a great job at complimenting the beer. Always grab a pour when I find it on draft. AskForJenny (1086) - Ontario, New York, USA - APR 15, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2010 22oz - Black liquid under brown head. Roasted notes on nose, cocoa on palate. The oak aging moderated the flavors, avoiding the thwack I find with the Yeti. Hid the booze nicely. ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2010
650ml bottle. Pours pure black with tan head. Nose of huge espresso and dark chocolate, some oak. Thick, creamy body, great roasty espresso flavours, dark chocolate and vanilla. A beautiful coffee beer. brosen561 (70) - Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2010
Bomber. Pours like ebony with a thick as butter chocolate head. Aroma is smokey and chocolaty, with a nice and noticeable floral hint of hops. Drinks like a syrup, vanilla/chocolate sweetness, awesome dark and robust coffee flavor, and a little bit of that good hoppiness. Finishes sweet, like a mocha. Finally, another great coffee beer.

On tap at maproom. Pours very dark brown to black with thick tan head. Aromas of espresso, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and oak. Flavors of espresso, roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, oak, and light caramel. Solid mouthfeel and finish. Much better than the chocolate version. I tend to dislike coffee beers as a whole but this was top notch. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 10, 2010
On tap at Max and Joe’s. Pours extremely dark brown to black with a dark reddish brown head of large bubbles. The aroma is a ridiculously intense shot of espresso. In fact, there’s likely more espresso in this than in a single shot of espresso. The coffee completely dominates and covers up all other aromas and flavors. This is a prime example of how liberace was wrong - too much of a good thing is not always wonderful. The delicious barrel-aged Yeti is simply ruined by too much coffee flavor. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 10, 2010
On tap at Beer Temple. Wow. A really nice improvement on what is already a top marks beer. Black body with dark tan head. Nose of dark chocolate, espresso and caramel. Flavour is really rich, chocolate again of course, with espresso, coco and plenty of bitter. Almost feels like a chocolate milk shake in texture. Very nice. radagast83 (8072) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2010
22 oz bottle. This Great Divide beer may be as near perfect as Great Divide can get the Yeti to be. The aroma is roasty, with heavy notes of coffee (espresso), chocolates. Alcohol presence is not too overpowering, but it’s there. Boy is it there. Flavor is a rich, smooth one with chocolates, coffee, a touch of vanilla. Bottle warms quite well as consumed.

On draft at the Beertemple, Amsterdam. Pours pitch black with a very creamy tan head that leaves so much lacing no spot of glass is left without the creamy head sticking to it. Aroma of coffee/espresso, chocolate, spices, cake and caramel, very well balanced. Flavor is smooth, coffee, slightly watery, chocolate, caramel, very bitter and with a long lingering bitterness. Slightly powdery yet surprisingly watery texture. Still, very very nice.
