look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Brewed with chocolate and marshmallows and spices. It taste like when I burn my s'mores. But seriously it is pretty good. Next time I'll drink it I have s'mores with it.

Look: Black with a thick fluffy mocca colored head

Aroma: roasted malts, chocolate, cinnamon, marshmallow

Flavor: roasted and smoky malts, maybe graham crackers, dark bitter chocolate, cinnamon and a marshmallow vanilla sweetness in the background.

Body/Overall: full bodied, quite good

Poured from a 19.2 oz can. Pours deep black with a large tan head formation. Smells like a standard stout. Taste has some smores characteristics, but not overwhelming. Body is fluffy like a marshmallow, deceiving for a 9%+ beer. Some of the spices they claimed on the can didn't come through. Not sure how old the can was, may need to seek out a fresher can in the future.

2 finger almost brown head with excellent retention.
Jet black Imperial Stout. Ample lacing.
Graham cracker-y cinnamon stands out first in the aroma. Roasted malt, dark chocolate.
Fantastic mix of bitter malt, dark chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla (fluff). Great balance and flavor...s'mores for sure.
Full body, medium carbonation with a rich, spicy, slightly sweet finish.
Outstanding.

Poured moderately hard from an extra tall can into a snifter glass, forming a ton of brown head that slowly faded to nothing. Deep brown, not quite black, body. Smell is slightly sweet and smoky malt, maybe a hint of chocolate. Taste is a bit more campfire smokiness with sweet chocolate than s'mores. Just a hint of bitterness. Medium bodied, just a hint of oiliness, with minimal carbonation. Really yummy take on s'mores without being excessively sweet or smoky.

Stovepipe can poured into a tulip
Canned in 2019

A- pours jet black in color with a two-finger creamy dark tan head that has great retention and leave s a bit of lacing behind

S- aroma opens with milk chocolate, vanilla cream and roasted marshmallow. Notes of cinnamon and graham cracker begin to pop, as well as brownie batter & caramel. Charred malt and black licorice close it out

T- milk chocolate and vanilla notes up front give way to a creamy marshmallow flavor, followed by a spicy note of cinnamon and even a bit of clove. Mid-palate gives a hint of graham cracker before notes of charred malt start to takeover the finish, lingers of chocolate, char and vanilla

M- medium heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly creamy mouthfeel with a bit of warmth on the close

O- a solid Yeti variant, chocolate and marshmallow really come through

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

An actively tall tan head settles to a foamy, bubbly thick collar over a matte black body.

The roundly medium-full body has a softly firm carbonation that introduces a more gentle, less assertive chocolatey sort of smoothness to the typically cedary-pine bite I love the Yeti series for. However, this is no knock, especially considering the inspiration, as I sit here nursing this brew over an actual campfire in the middle of the Appalachian mountains, real life s'mores at the ready.

A hint of char and a slight vanilla exhale develops shortly thereafter, while there's still a touch of hickory woodiness to the underlying Yeti stout, with a hint of cinnamon. They are clearly trying to merge into contemporary stout lane, and successfully so to my palate. The finish is semi-dry with no heat or bitter burn, making its final departure from the original series.

Tall boy can, wow... canned 4/16/20
Pours a large bubbly thick brown head with moderate retention, nice soapy lacing, pitch black color with decent legs, no light

Nose brings some cinnamon out front, cinnamon graham cracker with a bit of licorice, into a marshmallow nougat caramel sweetness, fudgey dark chocolate behind that, the mallow gives a sweetened condensed burnt milk character as well, a bit of roast and a touch of coffee, heavy dark charred malt but not burnt or acrid, smooth alcohol

Taste brings more of the dark malts with roast and some cocoa, dark chocolate, a bit fudgey, thick creamy cocoa with some burnt marshmallow again, as well as that nougat, caramel, and a bit of baking spice which has some generic spice from the malt, as well as the mild licorice, but also some cinnamon cutting through, a bit of bitterness mostly from the dark malts, but a bit of spicy hop as well, the nougat and spices really come through on the back end, cinnamon, licorice, then spicy hops really kick in with med bitterness and a little astringency bitter, dark roasted cocoa as well, med sticky sweet finish, a touch of smooth alcohol getting warm on the finish

Mouth is fuller bod, rich creamy thick, some mild warming alcohol getting tingly as it warms, med foamy carb, a touch of astringency on the finish which can be expected with so much dark malt and spicy hops

Overall not bad, a good base beer as usual, great spices and cocoa, roast levels, etc, delivers the marshmallow, cinnamon graham cracker, and chocolate, although the finish gets a bit rough with astringency and spicy bitterness, as well as alcohol, but otherwise a good beer

Pours with a beautiful head that sadly disappears quickly. Marsh mellow and chocolate on nose, literally as if real s'mores are in front of me (minus the smoke). Flavor mimics the nose accurately, with the addition of significant bitterness, as if you were eating s'mores made with dark cacao instead of milk chocolate. Full bodied. Very enjoyable.

Great Divide Brewing Co. "S'Mores Yeti"
19.2 fl. oz. can, "CANNED ON: APR 16 2020 13:53", and sampled on JUL 14 2020
$11.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ (Can this be right?, Yep, it's right.)

Well there's nothing to complain about here if you like the spices of a Graham Cracker... cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, vanilla... I'm not really sure what's in them but it tastes like one has been dropped in and soaked. There's chocolate to it as well, and according to the label, marshmallow although I can't find that. Then there's the Yeti itself with is a solid all-around Imperial stout.

Now, I'm generally a traditionalist who might normally say that I don't like added stuff, but in this case the Yeti has been through so many variations that I'm used to it, and some of them have been great. I feel that throwing another one into the mix isn't such a crime anymore, and this one actually turns out to be pretty damned good - that is, of course, if you like Graham Cracker spices, chocolate, and (missing for me) marshmallow.

I drank this by itself, the whole can, and I didn't find it at all cloying or sweet. I think it could be a dessert beer on its own, but I don't really see it as such. It would probably make a good ingredient in a dessert, but at the same time I'd ask why not just go all out and add the spices and chocolate and sugar yourself?

Poured from a stovepipe can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Beautiful inky black pour.. oily and viscous with thick mocha head. Great lacing.

S: Rich and roasty... spicy and sweet. Cocoa and coffee.

T.F: Just like it smells. Some sweet chocolate and roasted malts mixed with espresso. A bit of spice to it... kind of like a milder take on 'Chai Yeti'. A bit of marshmalllow and cracker if I hallucinate a bit, and some surprising bitter bite later in the swig. Medium to heavy bodied. Smooth.

O: A fun semi-sweet and spiced 'Yeti' variant. Gorgeous looking and fairly easy drinking... a good 'share' beer.

Black in color with no penetration to light. There’s a fingernail of brown on top. Light lacing. The aroma is of cinnamon, chocolate, and lactose. I’m tasting a wallop of lactose, chocolate, and cinnamon. The mouth is thick and sticky.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a dark brown / black color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a half inch of creamy, tan-colored, very long-lasting head. Below average lacing.

S: A decent, but overly low key, aroma of chocolate, malt, marshmallows, hops, and spices.

T: Tasted of a bit of marshmallows (sweet, but definitely subtle), a hint of hops (mostly in the finish; not a big presence), a decent amount of chocolate (not bad, nut could've used more), and a good amount of malt (present throughout). Like the aroma, this isn't a bad flavor, but kind of underpowered in some ways. Still, not bad.'

F: An average amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An uneven beer, but it has some good attributes. Worth a look.

Copy from Untappd. Motor oil black, minimal head, rather roasty and notes of marshmallow, cinnamon, and a smokiness reminiscent of my Boy Scout days. ENJOYABLE.

19.2 oz. can. Black body. Smells smells of roasted malt and dark chocolate. Tastes of marshmallow up front. Sweet and then milk chocolate. Turns roasty and bitter quickly, returning it to a real beer. Sweet and heavy, but good. I appreciate that it isn't s sweet sugary mess and still retains Yeti's profile.

Big, burley and chocked with char, the Great Divide Yeti has always exuded masculinity, aggression and force in imperial stout. But now its childish side starts to show with the ingredients that are quintessential in s'mores campfire treats.

With the same look of a opaque black as the original concoction, a milky, malty and dark chocolaty pour renders a tremendous loose knit mocha head while its retention lingers deep into the session. Chocolatey with a burnt cocoa scents, sweet caramelized malts, cherry rum-like alcohols, strong bitter coffee, and highly roasted grains are extremely powerful to the nose while its suggestions of s'mores are mild.

Initially sweet with caramelized barley, baker's chocolate, and light licorice, the taste leads with robust espresso and roastiness. And there's the s'mores as the savory candied ingredients show a light marshmallow, milk chocolate and graham cracker whimsy over the campfire and carbonized grains. Mild berry tartness fills in the blanks while aggressive hop bitterness compounds the roasted grain to create intense piney resiny flavors deep into the taste.

Thick, creamy, chewy, and heavy on the palate, the big beer slides down the gullet dense and cream-dry, chased by the coffee-like bitterness and burnt berry tartness. Lingering with malty sweetness, complexity, and long roast, an aftertaste of roasty, coffee, and cocoa extends into a kahlua and whisky filled finish with hints of s'mores struggling to hold on.

Man, like the Dodgers this one was a letdown. Barrel aged S’more Stout? Yeah, I’m into that like the first time that I saw Eva Green on the big screen. But man, what a disappointment. Weak barrel aged feel and no s’more taste whatsoever. Not feeling this at all.

Light carbonation with an above average body. Has a thick creamy feel
Aroma is bitter black coffee, coffee beans,espresso, bitter black coffee. Some cocoa, marshmallow, Graham cracker was there but sort of in the background
Taste was true to aroma with everything coffee dominating. Like the aroma the s'more showed up in the background and aftertaste
Even though I didnt pick up a lot of s'more this was still an exceptional beer . Would seek this out again as I completely enjoyed this yeti beer

Poured into a 16 oz Snulip glass canned on 9/17/19. Pours a slick near pitch black with a 2 plus finger sticky mocha head that leaves thick streaks of lace as it slowly settles into a thin layer of bubbles. 5

Smell is cocoa nibs, toffee, graham cracker, expresso, vanilla bean, and some marshmallow. 4.5

Taste follows chocolate, toffee, expresso, vanilla, graham cracker, and marshmallow exactly what you expect, but actually very subtle but balanced and crazy tasty. 4.5

Mouthfeel is big and chewy, a tad dry, drinks bigger than 9.5%, but extremely approachable. 4.75

Overall this is exceptional, as I always expect from Great Divide and brewing Imperial Stout. 4.5

19.2 ounce can into snifter, canned in 9/2019. Pours dense dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, graham cracker, cinnamon, marshmallow, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, marshmallow, roasted nuts, toasted biscuit, and dark bread/crust; with lighter notes of licorice, molasses, raisin, fig, date, smoke, charcoal, leather, wood, tobacco, peppercorn, pine, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/black/bready malts, chocolate, marshmallow, spices, and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with big strength. Taste of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, graham cracker, cinnamon, marshmallow, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, marshmallow, roasted nuts, toasted biscuit, and dark bread/crust; with lighter notes of licorice, molasses, raisin, fig, date, smoke, charcoal, leather, wood, tobacco, peppercorn, pine, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate pine, herbal, woody, grassy, peppery, roasted, charred bitterness; and cinnamon/ginger spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, graham cracker, cinnamon, marshmallow, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, marshmallow, roasted nuts, toasted biscuit, dark bread/crust, licorice, molasses, dark fruit, smoke, charcoal, leather, wood, tobacco, peppercorn, pine, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/black/bready malts, chocolate, marshmallow, spices, and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with an awesome hop/char bitter/sweet and spiciness balance; with no cloying, acrid, astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering hop/char bitterness and spiciness. Medium carbonation and fairly full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety/bready, and fairly sticky/chalky/resinous mouthfeel that is great. Mild increasing warmth of 9.5% after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic flavored imperial stout. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/black/bready malts, chocolate, marshmallow, spices, and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the big ABV, with the modestly bitter/resin/charred/drying finish. Great soft/silky feel, and not overly bitter/charred. Perfectly balanced between rich malts, chocolate, marshmallow, and spices; with great earthy hop presence and restrained fruity yeast. Light residual sweetness with lingering dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and outstanding spot on base RIS style as expected. Not overwhelming on any aspect.

A- Beast of a 19oz can into a snifter with a body as black as night and a tall cap. The head has a deep nutty cocoa hue and a thick puffy texture. Very good head retention and thin plentiful sheets of lacing.

S- Roasted malts and chocolate notes are the majority of the aroma. The biggest thing about the s'mores is the toasted marshmallow notes with that burnt sugary goodness coming to mind. Caramel, toasted nuts, hints of moderate sweetness, dark chocolate, strong espresso, graham crackers and a hint of licorice.

T- Saying this in a good way, not as sweet and dessert driven as I might have expected given the s'mores title. The roasted and bitter malts still have a huge say in things and they pair well with the s'mores spectrum character. Dark bitter chocolate, baking cooca, dark roast coffee, heavily toasted nuts and milk chocolate balanced with graham cracker, vanilla sweets, toasted sticky marshmallow and a hint of smoke. A bit of dark fruits with time but the roast still runs the show by far. A touch of earthy and pine hops.

MF- Thick and luscious as anyone would expect from the Yeti lineup of brews. Texture is a bit oily and nice and frothy/creamy with a medium level of the bubbles. Roasty bitter finish.

Not a s'mores or dessert stout bomb but really well crafted with great balance between that spectrum and the base stout.

On draught at Frontier Brewing and Taproom.

Pours pitch black with a luxurious head of tan foam.

Smells really roasty, chocolate, vanilla, light spiciness

Taste is the same, cinnamon being the spice that I pick up. Has a pleasant sweetness to accommodate the roast.

Feels full bodied with medium carbonation.

Excellent!
