22 oz bottle dated December 20, 2010 poured into a snifter

A-Pours black with a nice two finger chestnut colored head that has very good retention and leaves copious amount of sticky lace.

S-As you'd expect huge coffee/espresso aromas abound, some roasted malt, a bit of smoke and oak, chocolate, a bit of booze. Smells very good.

T-Dark roast coffee/espresso leads, hints of chocolate, oak, smoke, black licorice and a bitter hop bite at the back.

M-Full bodied, lush, creamy. Coats the palate well.

D-Dangerously drinkable. I polished this one off quickly. Its was very enjoyable.

This was the last of the Yeti clan for me to try and I think it is now my favorite. Overall, a superb beer from Great Divide.

Glad I have another stored away. I'll have to revisit this one at the end of the year. I'm sure it'll be even better.

22oz bottled Feb 12, 2010.

Pours thick black with a large three finger dark brown head that is very foamy and rocky, leaves ring after ring of sticky clumpy lace and holds a solid cap. Beautiful.

Rich, strong aroma of premium coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, and a touch of vanilla. The coffee steals the show here and it's some quality stuff. Very inviting.

Flavor...wow...rich dark chocolate, intense coffee, roasted malts, nice vanilla notes from the oak, alcohol is very well hidden for the ABV although makes a light presence on the finish. Overall this has a certain coffee-infused chocolate milkshake thing goin' on. Absolutely delicious.

Mouthfeel is full, velvety, creamy, low to medium carbonation.

Damn this is good. Really good. Probably my favorite of the Yetis, and that's saying a lot cuz I love 'em all. Will definitely grab this fresh next year for a more intense coffee experience.
