4.09/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

July 16, 2013 bottling date.

A: Pitch black pour with a head that's nearly as dark. They sorta meld together initially and then the head starts to lighten. Large and dense head that fades very very slowly. Top notch retention. Thick and heavy walls of lacing. Great appearance.

S: Interesting aroma. Charry grains and black malts loaded with raisins. Fresh juicy raisins, not that typical raisin aroma you get in a lot of BSDAs and barleywines and such. An interesting dark bread aroma too which I think might be the oatmeal.

T: Right up front there's lots of burnt oatmeal. Thick, chewy roasted oatmeal. Mild raisin with it, not nearly as strong as the aroma. More of an afterthought. That bready flavor is still here, kinda tastes like raisin bread in the middle and in the finish. Okay, a LOT like raisin bread sometimes. Bitter char lingers around in the finish and beyond, giving it a fairly accurate burnt raisin bread aftertaste.

M: Heavy and thick and smooth.

O: I'm not entirely sure how to score this one. I expected an oatmeal stout with some raisins to add a little complexity. What I got is a startlingly accurate burnt raisin bread beer. It's good, but I was hoping for a nice creamy oatmeal version of yeti. It's quite different than that. Good but I think the other versions are much better than this one.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

From bottle, 1/21/14

A: motor oil black with a fluffy brown head, only appears with a 90 degree pour
S: sweet roasted malt, coffee and cocoa, raisins and dates, pumpernickel and a hint of orange
T: Lots of raisin up front and throughout, really great (if quick) coffee and charred notes in the finish with a touch of pine; lingering burnt, cocoa bitterness
M: quite smooth, but not as heavy as I'd like
O: Decent, a bit much on the raisin, but not really overboard. Overall well made.

4.54/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Thick, black beer with a dark brown to beige, two finger head. Lacing on the glass when the head sinks down to a thin, brown layer.

Nose: Chocolate cream, vanilla, ice cream, honey, toffee, brown sugar, nuts, hops, coffee and of course the special "Great Divide" smell! I JUST LOVE IT!

Mouth: Full, great, big, complex body with a very small amount of carbonation. Coffee, dark roasted malt, espresso, ash, caramel malt and a lot of dark chocolate!

This is a MUST HAVE. I love it. I’m glad I’ve saved a few in the beercellar :)
