On-Tap at Great Divide.
A- Very dark, hints of brown with a rich caramel/tan colored head.
S- Chocolate and oak.... slight vanilla notes. Roasted and chocolate malts.
T- Chocolate and oak balanced by hints of vanilla. Dark, bitter chocolate eventually takes over and comes out more and more as we warm toward room-temp. Hops are mild. The cayenne and coffee are ever-so-subtle.
M- Barely carbonated.... and smooth.... Creamy. The chocolate blends in so well with the creamy character... shake-like.
O- A magically robust yet drinkable stout. Balanced between bitter chocolate; hops; and a touch of coffee. The oak and vanilla (along with that hint of cayenne) add extra layers of complexity that take this beer to another level. I love GD's Yeti in all its various forms, but this one just might be the best.... This year's version, anyway.

A. Dark, dark brown, nearly black. An aggressive pour yielded a small amber head that retreats to a minimal film. No laces.
S. Chocolate, coffee, neutral oak, dark roasted malts all at noticeable levels. Hints of vanilla. Mild aroma.
T. The taste follows the nose consistently. A noticeable bitterness, not at all sweet. Major notes of coffee, dark malts, neutral oak, and some hops. No booze. A moderately bitter ale.
M. Moderately smooth, moderate carbonation, medium body.
O. Very balanced and consistent. Excellent. Highly recommended.
