Not as good as I expected and not as good as Espresso Yeti which is really the only other Great Divide Beer I have had. This was the 2012 vintage.

The taste was a little too bitter and harsh for me. I can't quite put my finger on it. The smell was of chocolate, oak and sweetness but the taste was a little lacking. Maybe the flavors haven't melded together quite yet. Not up to par with other barrel aged stouts.

Serving type: bottle

Vintage 2012 on tap at Brouwer's Café in Seattle. Served snifter-style.

Like the common Yeti, this one is quite black. It has a one finger layer of creamy brown mocha froth on top.

As with the base beer, I get an aroma of very dark, rich chocolate, coffee, and earth. However, there is also an awesome oaky, smoky smell in this version.

The flavor differs from the original Yeti in a similar way. Lots of pretty bitter coffee and chocolate, but mingled beautifully with smoke, oak, and leather. Impressive.

Oak aging hasn't made it any less thick or viscous.

A sensational twist on what was already a superb specimen of an imperial stout.

Serving type: on-tap
