Poured Espresso Oak Aged Yeti into a Belgian Tulip.

A - Pours black as midnight with a half of finger of mocha head.

S - Wow, whiskey, coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolates. This thing smells ridiculous.

T - Wow again, and no apologies. This is the shit. Wonderful, coffee up front with bitter chocolates, vanilla. Very nice.

M - Smooth beer, medium carbonation, medium mouthfeel. Wish it was a bit fuller for a Imperial, but nice nonetheless.

O - Nice brew from Great Divide. Highly recommended! Cheers!

2009 vintage.

Pours deep, dark, and full of mystery.

Smells like morning - fresh coffee percolating with a hint of vanilla. Not the coffee vanilla bomb I expected - chocolate, roasted chicory, and malted milk balls.

Smooth and lush flavor and texture. The age has calmed the harsh alcohol edges and mixed the espresso and oak vanillins just right.

Overall definitely a beer I will revisit after a couple years in the cellar.

A: Pours a very thick opaque jet black in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the sides of the glass and some very faint crimson highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy extremely dark mocha head made up of moderately sized bubbles that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of deeply roasted dark and chocolate malts with stronger aromas of espresso beans. There is also a light to moderate aroma of oak.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of deeply roasted dark and chocolate malts which are followed by some strong flavors of espresso (both freshly brewed as well as almost like the chocolate covered beans themselves). Light to moderate amounts of oak flavors towards the finish as well. Slightly heavier than moderate amounts of bitterness in the finish which lingers for a moderate amount of time.

M: Just shy of full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and coats the entire inside of your mouth with some light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: For a big beer like this one (high ABV), the alcohol is extremely well hidden and that makes it easier to drink then some of the others in the style (DIS). Nice flavors of coffee/espresso that are very complementary to the flavors and aroma of the beer without overpowering or dominating it. Really an enjoyable world class beer.
