Had from a 22oz bottle. It pours a dark brown, black color, with a very dark brown head. It has a strong espresso nose along with some malts and strong alcohol presence. It has a strong espresso taste, with some vanilla, roasted malts, and strong alcohol taste. It is full bodied and dry finish. Overall a great beer. Great divide does such a good job with their Yet's. I wish they would bring the Oatmeal Yeti back.

22oz single from Wilbur's in Ft. Collins, Mar 06 2009 bottling date. Just this one and barrel aged Yeti to complete the tasting of all the varieties.

A: Extremely dark brown with cinnamon colored head, about half an inch thick after settling, pretty impressive retention on such a big beer. Big gobs of lacing on this one too. Completely opaque. Excellent looking big stout.

S: Coffee, chocolate milk, dark fruits, mostly plum, a few hints of vanilla, coffee is strong, definitely more of an espresso, which is appropriate given the name. Slightly boozey as well, hits all the notes just about right. As with all of these coffee beers, I'd like just a bit more coffee in the nose. Still excellent smelling though.

T: Initially the chocolate hits hardest, a few hints of brown sugar, and burnt toast/bread, big time roasted malt/coffee profile, almost acidic from the coffee profile, what was lacking in the nose is definitely compensated for in the mouth. Oak aging subdues the normally high IBU's that Yeti has. Slightly bitter, but it really comes more from coffee, there are a few citrus hints in the beer, but this one focuses on coffee and chocolate. Really tasty. I'm quite impressed. Nice oak/vanilla flavors as well. Great.

M: Fairly thick, extremely dry from the wood/coffee, sucks the moisture right out of my mouth. Booze is subdued and not nearly as hot as I had figured for a beer that is a little over 2 months old. Spot on.

D: Easy drinker, can you say hangover beer? This is the perfect morning after beer, I'm really impressed with this one. I wish I would have grabbed another bottle to age. Excellent beer. Highly recommended.
