Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout, 22 oz. bomber: I have had a few outstanding stouts lately, which sets the bar pretty high, but the Oak Aged Yeti cleared the bar easily to join the outstanding club. The Yeti pours like a moonless night, with a dark tan head on top, and offers a big aroma for those inclined to get a nose into the glass. A huge flavor coat the palate and sticks. Chocolate, mocha, espresso all swirl about. The flavor lasts and keeps changing long after the sip. The Yeti has one of the most enduring and nuanced aftertastes I have experienced. Very much in the running for top Imperial Stout. And when I think of the competition: Oskar Blues Ten Fidy, Stone Russian Imperial Stout, Northwest Brewing Old Rasputin, my mouth is watering at the memory of them! High praise for the Yeti to join these ranks.

Look- opaque black, thick poor, thin dark tan head
Smell- hints of milk chocolate almost reminiscent of pudding, oak, coffee, molasses, nutty plum. Some cooked cabbage as well, unfortunately.
Taste- charred oak, bittersweet chocolate, earthy hops, semi-sweet malt in the middle followed by bitter dry finish with notes of cabbage. Alcohol is well hidden.
Feel- medium full, slightly sticky, medium carbonation
Overall- Despite the obvious infection, the aroma and appearance were quite inviting. Flavor was disappointing to me and I'm sure the infection played a role but I'm just not fond of the balance of roasted malt in Yeti.
