Sampling right now on 4/8/15. Comes in a 1 pint, 6 ounce (22 ounce OR 650ml) bottle with silver foil on the top that covers the cap also. From the Great Divide Brewing Company in Denver, Colorado, their "CHOCOLATE OAK AGED YETI" contains a stronger 9.5% alcohol (ABV). Bottle on sale for $7.99 at the local Hy-Vee. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled-glass thumb-print stein.

Brew pours a pitch black in color, almost like motor oil. A good 4-finger foamy beige head is seen when poured slowly and finally settles down to still a good 4-5mm after 20 mins or so. Lots of sticky lacing is seen when sipped that sticks to the sides of the glass. The aroma is of dark roasted malts and cocoa for the most part. More going on with the taste as their is a hint of black coffee as well a light hint of oak from the barrel. Lots of flavor and you don't taste the booze unlike some of these Imperial Stouts. Actually easy to drink with no harsh or bitter taste to speak of. A tasty brew overall with lots of tasty goodness. Medium+-Heavy bodied with perfect carbonation. This one is a sipper and I doubt you will drink more than one of these in a single setting. Overall, really liked it.
