Bottled on Dec 20, 2013. 22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black with barely any light getting though; small mocha head that leaves nice retention and lacing. The aromas deliver on the expresso and oak. Tons of fresh black coffee. Lots of vanilla. Lots of chocolate. Hints of cocoa malts. The flavors truly match the aromas. The coffee and vanilla really give this an expresso feel. The coffee and dark chocolates give this one a nice bitterness. Very rich and roasty. The vanilla gives this a subtle sweetness. The chocolate really adds another dimension to everything. The oak is there accentuating everything else and never becomes harsh or overwhelming. This is a pretty complex stout. Mouthfeel is nice. It's full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's not too thick, not too light. Alcohol goes unnoticed. This makes a great sipper and a nice beer to relax with and appreciate.

Great stout from Great Divide. They really deliver. Coffee fans and stout fans should rejoice. Recommended.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Black with a deep brown head.

S: Coffee, vanilla, oak, and roasted malt in the nose.

T: Chocolate, bitter espresso/coffee, roasted malt.

M: Full bodied, smooth.

O: Really good, but nowhere near as good as Chocolate oak aged Yeti. Worth a try, but I probably won't buy it if Chocolate Yeti is available as well.

Pours oily black with a nice medium khaki head approximately one and a half fingers that lasts a nice long time. Some nice long lacing too!

Smells of coffee, some oak, big roasted malts and butterscotch.

tastes very sophisticated,light for an oak aged stout but not in a bad way well planned out and wonderfully executed I daresay this beer could challenge BCBCS don't pass this up if you see it on tap or at a store. This beer is is a wonderful treat. Cheers!

Sampled from a 22oz bottle purchased at Apex Beer Dispensary. Bottled on Dec 23 2013.

A - Deep, deep black with a small tan head that dissipates quickly.

S - Starts coffee then goes dark chocolate before settling into a mix of the two along with notes of oak and smoke. The coffee never dominates but rather dances among the other aspects. Some hops come through as it warms.

T - Big time dry roast coffee, maybe too much. It finishes with a dry, roasty bitterness. Good depth and complexity but the espresso just runs a little too wild for my taste.

M - Creamy and smooth. The carbonation is there but also unnoticeable.

O - Very good but I'd like it more with a bit less coffee.
