Notes: A generous infusion of Denver's own Pablo's espresso adds yet another layer of complexity to this beer, combining with the vanilla oak character, intense roasty maltiness and bold hop profile to create a whole new breed of mythical creature. It's official: You can now have Yeti with breakfast.

Dark w/ creamy thick tan head. Nice lacing. Fabulous aroma. Coffee strong. Taste is strong coffee and a hint of sweetness. Smooth and easy to drink. Overall a nice strong beer that will satisfy any Craft beer drinker. On draft at Ron’s Corner Tavern.

Bottle review.

Pitch black; no light shall pass.

Nice dark tan head; thick lacing.

Smells of a delicious mocha latte; hint of booze. Enticing.

Thick, heavy mouthfeel.

Dark chocolate slaps you in the mouth on the first sip; coffee hits you on the back end.

This feels and tastes like a delicious chocolate malt. One of a kind.

Still love this beer. First had in 2016 from the bottle (4.75*), then in 2017 (4.5*), then a 2016 in 2018 (3.75*). Maybe my palette has changed over the years, resulting in the lowered rating or maybe it's me aging the beer, but it's still one of my old favorites that I'll continue to buy.

On tap. Pours a satin black with a multi finger, tan head that lingers and leaves lacing. Nose of espresso and roasted malt. Taste follows nose with roasted malt, strong coffee, and a subtle not of chocolate to balance the roastiness. Full body and low carbonation that is absolutely velvety smooth.
Another great Yeti. Great Divide does these magnificently.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass, sipped for an hour and a half

Look - Thick motor oil black, with a beautiful milk chocolate brown half finger head. The lacing on this beer is thick, top notch.

Smell - A wonderful whisky up front, with notes of vanilla and espresso and some chocolate

Taste - A nice roasted espresso with hints of chocolate and vanilla. A suprising bitterness likely accentuated by the espresso beans helps cut the maltiness. As it warms, the espresso really comes through and takes center stage, almost too much.

Feel - This is a thick and chewy beer, definitely a nice slow sipper.

Overall - This is a good strong stout. Pretty standard in terms of big bold flavor, however I felt the bitterness was a bit too prevalent as this stout warmed. It would have been a bit more agreeable if was slightly sweeter. Still very enjoyable, no doubt.

This is one of the best coffee stouts that I ever had. This is up their with your Mikkellers, Deschutes, Avery, Founders, New Holland, Oskar Blues, & Firestone Walkers of the beer world. Due to the oak aging that coffee is going to last longer than usual which is a good thing if your sitting on a bottle that is somewhere between 6 months to 1 year old. The 6 pack of highland black mocha stout that me & friend drank was blown out of the water by this beast. This blows the others from the oak aged lineup out of the water as far as I'm concerned. This is as good as any coffee stout that I have ever had. It's a little pricey but worth every dime spent, a World Class stout for sure. Cheers! A

Bomber into a snifter appears black in color with a khaki head. Nose is citrus pepper, earth, roast and charred grain. Taste is bitter roast, earth, citrus, coffee and tobacco. This is medium to light in body with modest carbonation. Not bad, not great.

My wife brought this home from a business trip to Denver and boy am I glad she did! Very complex and unique aged stout. There is a lot going on here and it all goes together very well.
