Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Deep, dark brown. Thin khaki head, and little lacing.

S - Dark roasted cocoa... brown sugar... vanilla bean

T - Dark roasted malt combined with bittersweet chocolate, vanilla and oak. Slight booziness on the backend with a bitter finnish. Mellow all around.

M - Creamy, full bodied and smoooth. slight leftover burn and spice from the pepper.

D - Excellent beer. There was a lot of hype and it didnt disapoint. Would have liked a little more chocolate and oak flavors, but the way it was constructed was fantastic.

Moving out of the apartment last week, I new I needed to go out with a bang. I decided to try this version of the ever popular Yeti.

Poured into my Surly Tulip. Pours a deep black with a thick and chunky brown mocha head. Maybe the thickest head I've seen on an Imperial Stout. Great retention and lacing.

The nose on this one is Chocolate (surprise!), coffee, a nice hop bitterness and sweet toasted malts. There is a very subtle oak character, not as much as I was expecting. Big warming presence of alcohol.

The taste is much what you would expect from the nose, dark chocolate, bitter hops, sweet malts, ground coffee, light vanilla and oak, and a friendly warming alcohol. Absolutely great stuff.

Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, with a nice alcohol bite. Honestly, as this warmed to room temperature, I found the alcohol came out more and more, so I would serve this at slightly below room temperature to maximize the flavor and aroma without drowning it in alcohol. Drinkability is great, I had no problem finishing the bomber by myself.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a small snifter.

A: Black with very little head, but a good retention that leads to a spider-web like lacing on my glass. The only thing that this beer could use to enhance its appearance is another half centimeter of head.

S: The smell is surprisingly subdued. I figured a big beer like this one would contribute more to the nose. I can make out a good amount of chocolate...no surprise there...but also some cayenne pepper and some nice strong roasted malts.

T: There is a very evident vanilla character, right from the beginning. Chocolate is more mild than the smell leads on. As the beer is swallowed, the overwhelming character is that of cayenne pepper juxtaposed subtly against the beer. The beer lacks that strong Imperial Stout "kick in the jaw" of intense beer character.

M/D: Smooth and creamy with only a touch of tingly carbonation. Extremely pleasing. The cayenne is a very compelling flavor and it adds a lot to the beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pour is super dark.. black and quite viscous with a tan head. The only way it could be better would be with a darker head. Aroma is certainly a bit chocolatey and oak but sort of reserved.. Some floral hops in there as well. Flavor has a sort of milk chocolate presence, like chocolate milk (more so than just blatant bitter dark chocolate).. There is some bitterness.. surprisingly not that sweet overall. The addition of the cayenne pepper is present in the end of the sip and the aftertaste and adds an interesting little flare. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with a good level of carbonation but it is missing a little bit of something. Its on the border of greatness and a really full, silky feel that you want in an impy stout but at the same time has a certain lightness that could be improved upon. Overall its certainly nice but a bit letting down. Definitely deserves a high score, but the let down is that I was hoping to be blown away with an A+. Towards the end of the bottle you may not be relishing every sip.

Poured into a 20 oz imperial pint glass. Dark brown with no penetrating light. Light to moderate lacing. First sniff is very intense, coffee, cocoa, vanilla, dark fruit. The taste is amazing. So much going on at once. The cocoa is very prominent, the alcohol is almost burning at times. Bittersweet chocolate is the strongest flavor i'm sensing at first but as it crosses the palate, coffee and dried fruit, molasses, burnt sugar are all present. This beer is perfectly carbonated and is very enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Brownish black and opaque with eggplant highlights. A light brown froth of soapy bubbles rises p thick and settles out quickly.

Aroma of milk chocolate and some powdery talc, some sharp tangy fruit and some port notes.

Flavor of cocoa and espresso, some licorice and a peppery finish. Hints of marshmallow and vanilla, cayenne warms up slowly as you sip. Not too hot or overpowering but definitely present, and masks the hop bitterness taking its place to offset the malt sweetness. Expected more chocolate and typical Imperial Stout richness.

Slick mouthfeel, low carbonation, a little slippery, tannic with a thin body.

A decent beer, perhaps a little overrated and bordering on novelty.

growler from party source,poured into a snifter.this beer is pretty much pitch black.nose is dominated by oak,chocolate and vanilla,with some roasted malt and dark fruit lingering in the back round.i feel. like this beer is a bit too oak dominated,i think bourbon oak aging would have been better.oak and vanilla dominate this beer,with dark fruit,chocolate,and coffee lingering in the back. kinda the reverse of how it should be.

mouthfeel is smooth but a bit thin.this beer kinda reminds me of new holland dragon's milk.overally pretty good,probably wouldnt get it again though.

22 oz. bomber poured into tulip glass

A: Wow! This one is a sight to see. Silky smooth black color, jet black. Pours with a huge khaki colored head, that reduces slowly and leaves nice full cap on top. Tremendous lacing. Impressive.

S: Smells of vanilla, cocoa and oak as well as a hint of ethanol.

T: Tastes of chocolate up front, however I was expecting much more. The oak is very strong. Also, there is an alcohol presence, but not nearly as strong as I had expected/hoped. What's really weird is the spices towards the very end, they just accumulate and build up a bizarre spicy aftertaste that does linger and may be a bit much. Pretty complex, but again, I was expecting a bit more chocolate.

M/D: Creamy and smooth. I don't think I could drink more than a bomber of this, a full bomber to myself may even be a bit much.

I'm a big fan of the Espresso Oak Aged Yeti which had a HUGE espresso taste. So, naturally, with Chocolate oak Aged Yeti, I was expecting a HUGE Chocolate taste only to find that the Chocolate was much overpowered by a peppery spice. I suggest, for what that's worth, that this bottle be shared by 3 people at minimum. I also suggest that this beer be renamed "Pepper Oak Aged Yeti". One of the more eccentric beers I've had.

This is a gorgeous beer! Poured from a bomber into a snifter, it is totally opaque with a huge billowing chocolate colored tan head that is big and frothy and doesn't seem to be going anywhere soon. As it dissipates down it leaves a very nice lacing.

The smell is really good, especially as it warms up (big surprise, right?) Roasted malt, chocolate, caramel sweetness, vanilla, wood flavors and booze all contribute to a really deep and complex bouquet. However, the booze and chocolate are really pronounced.

The taste is very interesting and not really what I expected. Up front you have a creamy and sweet mouth feel. The initial flavor is of roasted malt, chocolate and caramel; however, that is short lived, because almost immediately upon sipping you are kicked in the teeth with a big boozy and woody flavor. While the front is chocolaty and creamy, the middle and finish are very spicy and boozy with a big wood flavor. The aftertaste lingers with a biting boozy finish that burns the throat and mouth long into the aftertaste, which builds up a spicy flavor with each sip.

The flavors seem to be competing for dominance, with the booze and spice really overcompensating. The aftertaste was very potent and strong, making this a definite sipper. Perhaps this would mellow out with some aging?

A: Poured from a bomber to a pint glass. Had a jet black color and a completely thick texture. There was a huge amount of tan-colored, creamy, long-lasting head and excellent lacing.

S: Smelled of chocolate, malt, barley and alcohol.

T: A solid taste of malt, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and barley. Not ground-breaking, but definitely big, bold and flavorful.

M: A good amount of carbonation and a slightly slick finish. Full-bodied.

D: A very drinkable Imperial Stout. Another fantastic beer from Great Divide.

22 oz. bottle. Bottled on June 15, 2009.

Very dark inky brown body. Big, tall, rocky, dark sandy brown head. Great lacing up the sides of the tulip glass. Nose of powdered sugar, chocolate milk, light coconut, roasted barley, and hints of bourbon and vanilla.

Roasted malts and some coffee bitterness up front give way to dark chocolate and charred, yet sweetish fruits. Slight metallic twang follows, along with solid bourbon, oak, and vanilla notes. Coconut and some fruit sweetness in the finish, along with woody hop bitterness and bourbon-y warmth. Full-bodied, with an a somewhat oily, yet creamy feel. Pretty good!

Pours opaque with better than a full finger foamy brown head that resists fading and sets to stringy patterns of Belgian lacing. The smell through the collar is subtle but sweet with hints of chocolate and lightly roasted malt. The free surface thing is aggressive and suggests a total richness to follow. Nicely carbonated, the mouth feel has a touch of heat from the 9.5% ABV that lingers somewhat. Full bodied and creamy smooth the texture coats really well and enhances the overall experience. Full flavored, milk chocolate, licorice with a malty sweetness and vanilla cherry from the oak treatment. The alcohol is present but not distracting. There are TONS of quality ingredients and a whole lotta TLC in this one!! HIGHLY recommended!! Get yo hands on this bubbas. I'm enjoying this on many more level than the Espresso product. Is there a stock option with the purchase? Great Minds do think a like!!!

I was happy FooFaa decided to share this beer w/ tenderbranson69, ffejherb, brewlut and me.

Poured into a pint from the chilled bomber.

A - Deep black body w/ a medium tan cap. The appearance of a thick stout with deep opacity and the beading is tiny.

S - A dark cocoa aroma which is sweet, creamy and nutty, plenty of roasted notes w/ a light dark fruit hint like plum with chocolate and vanilla bean

M - Creamy textured, full feel w/ mild spice and dry cocoa edge the alcohol is subtle , the finish is mildly bitter

T - The flavor is rich with a moderate blend of roasted malt, vanilla and bittersweet chocolate. The cayenne pepper noted on the label is there but more in the texture than the taste and the intensity of the chocolate is sufficient to accent the roasted malts. The flavor of the hops and alcohol seem to linger as the finish still has plenty of vanilla, probably a bonus from the oak aging, but not overdone.

D - A fantastic stout, not everything I hoped for, but pretty decent in the chocolate flavor dept. I wished it was a little more oaky with cayenne in the taste, but not disappointing in the least - another version of Yeti that hits the mark.

Part of my Goebel's haul

Pours like 10,000 mile motor oil with 3 fingers of rocky brown/caramel colored head head. Nice viscosity to this, great head retention & good lacing

S: Dark chocolate, coffee & vanilla

T: Rich dark & milk chocolate, roasted grain bitterness, & some boozey vanilla up front. Dry boozey dark fruit dominates as this warms, plus some herbal hops along with vanilla & caramel, finishes dry, spicy from the pepper boozey hot with sublime chcolate & vanilla notes.
MF: Smooth, sticky, with low carbonation

Drinks a tad slow, the spicyness hotness is dragging an otherwise stellar offering down a bit. If you only have one bottle, save it until winter, or maybe even the next...First time I've really noticed this much hotness in any yeti iteration I've had. Still pretty damn tasty...

22 Oz. bomber shared with a friend at the bar. Chocolate Yeti pours an opaque black body with a strong tan head that sticks around a while, then slowly sifting down to a smaller layer. The aromas are strong dark coffee, dark chocolate, some hop character, vanilla, and deep dark malts. The flavor matches with a noticeable burn from cayenne peppers. Or perhaps that was the abv. Either way, there is some heat to this bad boy. The mouthfeel was exactly I imagined a 10% RIS. This type of beer is not typically up my alley, but it was enjoyable nonetheless--especially since it was offered free at my local beer bar.

Chocolate in Stouts is probably a better match than the time honored, yet failed marriage with peanut butter.

The beer opens like all other Yeti's; dark as you get, complete opaqness, a billowing tan head that rises to the brim and begs me to bounce quarters off of it. Retains even longer. Really, an ideal look.

Mellow and well blended aromas of cocoa, dark coffees, toffe, heavy cream, and bready maltiness. Low on fruity esters and restrained on spices from alcohols and phenols. Great Divide has great control of this beer.

Flavors are again balanced, though the chocolate notes are more prevailant than in other Yeti's. Nutty, caramel-toffee sweetness, rum-soaked sweet breads, deep Columbian coffees, and sweet/spicy alcohols round out the taste. The beer doesn't try to do too much, just simplify the variations and reinforce the present flavors with error-free, quality taste.

The body is very, very smooth- definately the smoothest of all the Yeti's. Harshness from grains and hops are again very restrained. Full, rounded, and creamy throughout. I keep waiting for the alcohol and hop bite in the end and it never happens. Though timid, it's solid.

This beer gives up on some of the complexity that regular Oak Aged Yeti displays, but is smoother than both regular and coffee Yeti's. The balance found here may be the better of the four. Although the beer is effortless and error-free, I keep looking for the subtle qualities that make me push it into the elite class of Imperial Stouts... and its just not there.

...but a chocolate and peanut butter Stout might make a great threesome.

Thanks jyounger30!

Excited about this one!! maybe a little too excited since this bottle is relatively new...

P: Bottled on date says 6/15/09. A youngster. Poured into a Brookyln Brewery pint glass.

A: Amazing deep, dark red hue that is almost opaque were it not for the slight bit of bloody red illumination. A massive caramel colored head that dissipated very quickly. There is not as much lacing as I expected from an IS.

S: Milk and dark chocolate aromas. I also detect a roasted bitter malt flavor along with an oaky, hoppy undertone. A whiff of alcohol completes the smell.

T: Deep milk chocolate opening. There is a rubbery hop flavor that I think may have come from oak aging towards the middle along with the taste of bitter, roasted malts. A strong, spicy, alcoholic coat lingers through the entire experience and leaves a trace in the finish.

M: Medium bodied. This was too course and carbonated for me and the >9% ABV is not hidden at all. The alcoholic taste and spiciness are so strong in this brew that it overpowers everything else.

D: Not gonna lie, I was a little disappointed by this one since OAY was so good. I wouldn't have this again. The mouthfeel really keeps me from going back for more. Though perhaps with age, more subtle flavors will take over the strong alcoholic taste.

Poured from a 650 mL bomber into a Nonic glass.

A - Pours a deep, dark black with 2 fingers of dark khaki head, leaves rings of lace on the glass as it's consumed.

S - The nose is coffee, chocolatey goodness.

T - Dark chocolate bitterness with plenty of alcohol. Also a bit of cayenne in the finish.

M - Highly carbonated, yet velvety like a stout should be imho.

D - I'd have to classify this as a sipper, given its richness and potency.

On-tap at the Great Divide Tap Room. Served in a snifter.

A: Midnight black with a voluminous hot cocoa head. Head retention is very good and patches of lace are left behind.

S: Smells like a chocolate pine forest. Hop aromas dominate with a heavy pine scent, bakers chocolate is in the back providing nice balance. A slight whiff of pepper is also present.

T: After an initial hit of dark chocolate, espresso and vanilla, bitterness bursts onto the scene with heavy pine and grapefruit flavors. The chocolate rides through the experience. The pepper adds a spicy kick toward the end. Finishes dry, with a lingering spicy bitterness.

M: Heavy body feels oily and slick. Carbonation is about right.

D: Oak Aged Yeti is still my favorite member of this family, but this chocolate one is a strong effort. I'm glad I tried it.

Picked this up in a bomber from the Charleston Beer Exchange.

A - Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Pours opaque black with a brownish-khaki head.

S - A big cocoa powder chocolate smell mingling with some toasty malt and vanilla beans.

T - Again, a cocoa like chocolaty taste upfront, with some dark chocolate, roast malt, and vanilla the rest of the way.

M - Thick side of medium bodied, decent carbonation, extremely smooth.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a Yeti chalice. Beer was pitch black with a two-finger, light brown head. Moderate lacing and light carbonation.

Aroma was chocolate, licorice, oak, vanilla and bourbon.

Taste was chocolate, bitter hops, light coffee, vanilla and brown sugar. Slightest hint of peppers that's only apparent in the back of the mouth in the aftertaste.

Great beer. Decent drinkability. Alcohol is fairly well hidden.

Pour is a motor-oil brownish-black, completely opaque. It creates a rich deep tan head that rings the glass in lace. The aroma is of liquorish and chocolate, with some alcohol present. Much more subdued in flavor than I expected.The bourbon like characteristics found in many barrel aged brews is subtle. Some alcohol in the middle and finish with a noticeable heat at the end. Good, but I don't get the bittersweet chocolate taste and slight smokiness that I was expecting. Worth trying again if it were on nitro, otherwise, I'd pass.

S: Chocolate and bouron. Significant piney hop aroma that surprised me. Vanilla and alcohol were more noticeable as the beer warmed.

T: Chocolate, roasted nuts, coffee and caramel flavors were big and bold. Sharp bitter finish lingered to balance.

M: Medium-to-full body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, but very dry.

D: Very complex and flavorful. ABV will slow you down a bit.

22oz. bottle into a Great Divide chalice. Bottled on Jun 15, 2009.

I'm a bit tainted by my love for the Yeti series, as this is the fourth variety I've tried and rated. Still, as a reviewer, I feel I must drink and report my impressions of this beer no matter the cost...come hell or high intoxication. You're welcome.

Beautiful pour...saw that one coming. Look at you, Chocolate Yeti--sitting there all smug with that creamy cappuccino head of yours, body dark and thick like a boozy motor oil. You disgust me. The aroma isn't much different than regular Yeti--which is to say it smells amazing. Cookie dough and Godiva dark chocolate, spiced, earthy hops, and lots of alcohol. A bit more vinous and boozy than the other three, with a faint hint of red peppers. Must be the Cayenne talking.

Yum. And I do mean YUM! Starts off quiet and chocolaty, like a snack of chocolate milk and cookies in the dark of midnight. Then, slowly, the hops creep in. Earthy, musty, dank. They sit heavy on the back of the tongue and open the gates for the booze to rush in. And rush in it does, as spicy, dark chocolate liquor kisses the back of the throat with a delicious hint of oak. The pepper is a decidedly amazing touch, adding a slow, succulent burn to the roof of the mouth with each sip. Luxurious mouthfeel, creamy velvet with a tight, prickly carbonation level and boozy finish. My only qualm is that the mouthfeel and drinkability degrade slightly as this beer warms, a phenomenon which should be the reverse for a beer of this caliber. A sipper for sure, but this is dangerously easy to drink. Damn you, Great Divide, for making such an amazing lineup of Imperial Stouts!
