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.
