A- Very dark, no light passing through this one. First pour left a 1 finger deep, mocha brown head that stayed till the very last drop. Looked very appetizing.

S- dark roast coffee, coco, hazlenut and vanilla with a hint of nutmeg. Alcohol taste was there more towards the end when it warmed up. Overall great taste

T- Strong coffee and bitter chocolate up front finished with a molasses bitter vanilla

M- Thick and creamy

O- Amazing Imperial Stout. Quite session able despite it's first appearance. One of the top BA coffee beers I've tried. At $10 a bomber, I think it's a great deal.

Wow this was a great 32 growler this weekend and much better than the one bottle I had last year. Poured into my 8 oz stout glass produced big mocha head with tons of chocolate up front, vanilla notes in the middle and the coffee notes on the finish. Poured tighter into my 4 oz taster and or 5 oz snifter opened with huge coffee, with the vanilla and chocolate finish. So either way I enjoyed both and this is a chocolate coffee bomb. Terrific mouthfeel, this 32 dissapeared in no time at all. Overall outstanding.

Had from a 22oz bottle. It pours a dark brown, black color, with a very dark brown head. It has a strong espresso nose along with some malts and strong alcohol presence. It has a strong espresso taste, with some vanilla, roasted malts, and strong alcohol taste. It is full bodied and dry finish. Overall a great beer. Great divide does such a good job with their Yet's. I wish they would bring the Oatmeal Yeti back.

A- pours an impenetrable black. A hard pour gets a mocha colored head, which doesn't last particularly long but still manages to leave some nice lacing on the glass

S- deep, rich coffee notes and a slight alcohol sweetness in the background

T- there a big malt notes, dark toasted grains, coffee, bittersweet chocolate and some mild earthy hops all bouncing around for great effect.

M- not as thick on the palatte as I would have thought, but still nice. There's a slicker, slightly oily feeling

O- all in all this is a great, big flavored Imperial Stout
