Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout is another revered incarnation of our legendary imperial stout. We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. Another great Yeti? Hell yes.

Ah yes. Pours black with nice dark brown head on top.

Mmm. Loads of roast and soot in the nose. Then the chocolate comes. Strong milk chocolate/cocoa character. Then finally I get a really strong sense of the pineappley hop/malt combo. Lots of soy.

Taste is more soot, roast. Again pretty much a repeat of the elements present in the nose.

Mouthfeel is thick with nice malt sweetness and roast.

Ah...glad to get back to the Yetis. Still prefer plain old Oaked though.

Desert + Beer = Chocolate Yeti

a - Dark, oil-slick like quietly poured out - calmly awaiting to be drank

s - chocolate notes are immediate. Dark roasted malts. Did I say chocolate.

t - See Nose = Chocolate! This one, I feel, is up there wit ST. Chokolat. Bits of an oakiness along with slight hints of vanilla make this an enjoyable drink.

m - a good, thick, heavy stout...somewhat syrupy.

o - very enjoyable. I think I may have 1 or 2 left... :)

22oz bottle (bottled 3/31/2011) poured into a snifter. Pours an opaque black w/ a dense tan head that lingers, leaves sticky mocha lacing.

Aroma is dark roasted malt, chocolate, and a vaguely familiar spiciness - looking at the label now, this must be the cayenne.

Taste is roasted dark malt, bitter hops, chocolate, coffee, and dry oak. Nice bitter finish, and a little heat from the peppers.

Overall this has really good complexity w/ all the elements working in concert: chocolate, hops, oak, and spice. Well done Great Divide, another great rendition of the Yeti.
