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.

Wow. Really disappointed in this one. High hopes going in and just a cliff dive from smell to taste. I wanted to love this one and was expecting this to outdue the original but it fell well short. If i had this blindly you could never convince me that this was the chocolate variant. Tasted exactly like the original. "Hops toned down", exactly as hoppy as the original. No real chocolate nose or taste. Smoother in taste than the regular but less Roasty. Same killer creamy mouthfeel. That's the only thing saving this beer. I'd easily chose a evil twin or westbrook stout over this one. I will definitely try again and i would recommend because I am certain they mixed up the labels on this one.

Thick gorgeous pour of a deep flat blackness. The head was a thick congealed cloud of dark brown foam.

The nose is a touch lighter than I expected with a dry chocolate malt, whipped cream, vanilla, roasted coffee and smoke.

Mmmmm, dessert! You get chocolate and the taste of an after dinner coffee at the same time. There is a bit of spiciness, like a Jalapeno heat, with some Graham cracker maltiness, roasted ember, caramel and maybe toffee.

This is rich and thick with a tinge of alcohol and spiciness.

Saved a good one for my 1000th review, but I knew that Great Divide would deliver!

A - Almost black, opaque, with a dark tan head and lace retention.
S - Chocolate, barley, vanilla, some smoke, and a touch of oak.
T - Starts with malt and dark chocolate, then a bit of happiness and raisin, and finishing with vanilla, a little bit of cayenne, and charred oak. Coffee flavors are present throughout.
M - Definitely thick and creamy. Seems to coat the mouth. Very little heat, which is surprising. Super long, dry finish that almost seems peaty.
O - Extremely impressive addition to Great Divide's Yeti line. Made a beer float using this and malted vanilla gelato, resulting in the discovery of my new favorite dessert!
