We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. A Yeti for summer? Hell yes.

Tap at engine 15. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Surprisingly light aroma - milk chocolate. Medium body, medium carb. Soy, espresso, dark chocolate, lemon. There boozy heat, and it comes off a little harsh. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, courtesy of Nische, many thanks! Pours, well, the same as the regular Yeti. Aroma is more floral, some more green peppers, also some dark chocolate. Body is heavy, sweet, more dark chocolate, a little spicy, feels less complex though. Still an interesting and very good take on the Yeti.

SinH4 (6895) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2017
Bottle, many thanks Nische and anstei! Black color with beige head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted. Taste is chocolate, roasted, earthy. Silky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Excellent.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2017 0.33 l bottle brought by Višnja 666 and Pilot Goran. Thanks. Dark brown to black, small beige head. Barrel, roasty, nutty, chocolate. Dry. Thick, spicy. Medium body, spicy finish. Interesting.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2017 Sometimes you stumble into good fortune. Great Divide and the Yeti imperial stouts have been personal favorites and I happened to find this 22 oz bomber at Spec's in Lubbock, TX. Couldn't stand to wait any longer so here we go. The label says the bottle was put up on 2/3/17, bought in October and opened in December. The raven black liquid pours into my Buffalo Bayou tulip glass. The head is the normal Yeti dark mahogany brown, plentiful and long lasting. Lifting to my nose I find chocolate (duh), raspberry and some earthiness. A good sip now, Holy crap. Outstanding. Molasses, chocolate malt, dark fruit, a hint of brown sugar, charred wood. Dense and deep. Very full in the mouth. A bit of bitterness afterwards. A little heat too, unusual. Really nice. Great Divide, you have met my expectations and then some.

Nearly black with a brown head. Roasted malt and chocolate with a nice oak backing. Bitter finish. Nice work

On tap at the brewpub. Pitch black with a brown head. Quite fizzy for a stout. Bourbon and chocolate flavours. Very good.
