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.

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.
