1 year, 2 months aged.

A - Pours like motor oil, chocolate milk colored head.

S - A bit of booze, iced coffee, roasted malt.

T - Espresso loud and clear, sweeter than expected, dry chocolate. Alcohol is non-existent.

M - Silky and smooth.

O - Excellent, but more oak flavors would put bump this badboy up a few points.

Had this on tap at St. Gambrinus in Boerum Hill Brooklyn.

Poured a thick jet black with a creamy delicious looking khaki colored head. The lacing hung around from the initial diminish to the last sip. Great pour for a beer named a Yeti.

Smell was a bitter black coffee explosion. If you like the aroma of espresso in the morning, this is for you. After the initial blast of coffee, I picked up some hints of dark chocolate and some sweet notes from the oak barreling process in the form of vanilla. Extremely pleasant.

The taste was more of the nose. The coffee is dominant. From the first sip to the last, this was all about the coffee. It's got a bite, and is slightly acidic just like your morning coffee. Eventually it opened up to the vanilla notes (more vanilla in this IMO than the Oak Aged Yeti) and the dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel was thick and coated my entire mouth. A touch too sticky for me. Since the coffee profile is a touch bitter, it lingered for a bit.

If you like coffee forward stouts, this is for you. Extremely delicious beer by Great Divide.

A - Pours a motor oil black with a one-finger dark brown head. Head dissapates quickly leaving a nice amount of lacing.

S - Subtle notes of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate.

T - Lots of dark roasted espresso right upfront. Some roasted malts are also present. Finish is lingering bitter espresso.

M - Heavy bodied with low carbonation. Dry sticky mouthfeel. Lightt alcohol burn in the finish.

O - Excellent stout. A must try for anyone for enjoy coffee forward stouts.
