Thick and dark as night. There's not the faintest hint of light getting through. Nice thick milky dark chocolate colored head. Judging the beer by the cover, this one will be a gem. Smells of bitter bakers chocolate and vanilla. Faint hint of coffee aroma but I was expecting much more. Smells good, just not what I was expecting. On first sip I let out an audible, "WOW!" This is one tasty beer. Sweet chocolate and vanilla flavors balanced by the roasted and coffee flavors. By balanced, I mean perfectly balanced. I honestly don't see how Great Divide could improve on this beer. I love coffee beers and this is one of the best I've had. It's right up there with Pisgah Valdez. Mouthfeel is so thick you can chew on it. Wonderful beer and I wished I'd purchased more than one bomber.

a jet black thick motor oil like pour with about 3 inches of dark brown head. smells sweet like chocolate milk, coffee beans, caramel.. no scent of alcohol. the taste is dead on with smell, except a bit heavier on the coffee and slightly bitter because of the roastiness.

full body, lightly carbonated, very creamy, nice warm feeling.

this is a ridiculously good stout and well worth every penny. a heavy sipper but delicious throughout the whole time. barely tastes like alcohol.

Bottle into huna snifter. Bottle date jan 9 2012.

A: dark as night with a light coffee colored head about 1 finger. Finishes with a good amount of lacing, a great looking beer.

S: coffee, wood, chocolate, caramel, sweet, light alcohol.

T: more oak than anything, followed by dark coffee and dark chocolate notes. Perhaps dark fruits. Caramel comes through at the end. At 9.5% it hides the booze well. Great tasting beer.

M: heavy with comfortable smooth carbonation. Great feel to match the big taste.

O: a great beer that I have been holding for a while and it didn't let me down. Refreshing and tasty, a bit filling but any beer with this depth should be. Recommended

Delightful. Big, though. Very big. Not just the booze/alcohol presence, but the feel. The acidity/alkalinity from the espresso and the natural thickness of the brew really detracts from what is an excellent overall experience.

Sweet, malt roastiness combines so well with the espresso roast. Hops cut through the center, quietly, and bring an essential bitterness for something this sweet, but the roasted coffee flavors help in the bitterness department too. Very chewy, very filling. Also, very oaky, but some of the subtler oak characteristics are overwhelmed by the malt, coffee, and body.

Okay, does it sound like I dissed this beer? I'm not trying to dis it. I love it!

I love the look of the Yeti’s. Always super dark bodied with a large dark mocha head.

The nose on this is great. It hits on all cylinders: oak, vanilla, chocolate and the namesake espresso/coffee.

Such a heavenly smooth and heavy bodied beer. Big coffee and chocolate flavor. There is a pop of bitterness that subsides quickly but lingers in your mouth. The oak is slightly noticeable.

So good.
