i have for the most part really liked the yeti beers from great divide. i also start everyday with espresso, so it seemed like a great idea when i saw it in my local beer sto. this one is black as satans heart... not a trace of light gettin through, with a very slight brown head. the taste is huge, very bold, the stout and espresso flavors pair up very well. as i was drinking this i was thinking how awesome it would be if the crossbred this with their "chocolate yeti." low and behold they do, but seems you can only get it at their taproom in the great divide brewery....alls im sayin is bottle that stuff up and get it to us! this is a great stout- a great beer in general.

Pours a sludge-like deep, deep brown with a finger of dense, dark khaki head, like the crema on top of a shot of espresso. Impressive lacing for an imperial stout.
Smells of bitter chocolate, black licorice, roasted, borderline burnt barley and a touch of oak.
Tastes big and bold -- bitter chocolate, black coffee, oaky vanilla, milk chocolate. A little caramel sweetness. Smooth espresso on the finish. Nice lasting roasty bitterness.
Full mouthfeel that coats the entire palate and lingers. Creamy, with slightly prickly carbonation.
Overall, this is a roasty, roasty stout with just enough sweetness to balance it out. There doesn't seem to be a huge oak presence, but I guess it may have served to soften the edges and meld the bold flavors. A great barrel aged impy stout, though not the best.
