Bottled on May 28 2010. Pours very thick jet black with a nice big dark tan head. The head has decent retention, and leaves a little bit of lacing on the glass. The smell at first is over powering of chocolate but smells awesome. Once you get around the chocolate there is roasted malt, some coffee and just a little bit of vanilla behind all of that. Pretty typical of a big imperial stout except with loads more chocolate in the smell. Despite all the chocolate in the smell the taste kind of threw me off. Still quite chocolately obviously, and the chocolate is right up front. There seems to be a bit more coffee in the the taste that comes out after the chocolate. The vanilla is a bit more apparent as well rather than hiding in the back like I had in the smell. A little burn from the alcohol but nothing that throws the flavor off. The mouthfeel is semi thick and a little chewy. As for drinkability, it's pretty easy to drink even with a ABV of 9.5 (which isn't to bad for me) and with a little burn of alcohol. Probably wouldn't do two of these in a night but I wouldn't put it past me. Overall really good, another good Yeti from Great Divide. I've got another I've been sitting on for a year already so I wanted to try one that was kind of fresh to compare it to. I think this one will do good with a bit of age on it.
