Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout is another revered incarnation of our legendary imperial stout. We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. Another great Yeti? Hell yes.

This is a smooth, easy to drink chocolate stout that makes you beg for another glass. Great Divide has a masterpiece in this beer. Smells and tastes like a roasted chocolate malt with crisp carbonation that leaves a silky smooth film in your mouth. Hides the ABV well and is a beer that I would return too for sure. Worth the ten spot this is a fantastic beer! I just had a Siberian Night and this beer smokes it!

Bottom Line: would purchase again for sure.

Served in an over-sized wine glass.

Dark thick motor oil black pour with light bubbles on the body creating a dark tan head rising to about 1/3" with a vigorous pour.

Smell: Smells like coffee with a hit of mocha syrup. Light though, when you smell it, it leaves the nose fairly quick.

Taste: It's like drinking a Godiva infused with Columbian coffee. I say that because of it's roasti-ness. Sweet, but don't think it'll be an overload, quite the opposite...think of a cup coffee with a tablespoon or so of cocoa. A light shot of molasses and a a lighter hit of vanilla....yes lightly complex.

Mouth: A medium bodied carbonation, little dry on the edges but after taste is so friggin complex. very nice.

Overall: Could use a little tweaking but I will take it for what it is...I absolutely love the original Yeti and this one still does the name justice. A little bit high in price, but not bad at all. Salud!
