Great Divide Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout
Thick, motor oil black with a red hue and an awesome looking rich chocolate head. It looks so tasty that it's hard to look at without taking a sip.
Aroma is rich chocolate, cookie dough and a vanilla milkshake with a plum and some simmering charcoal. You can tell this beer is packed with flavor just from the look and aroma. It might be a bigger feat to make something that looks and smells this good to taste average.
Mouthfeel is thick, taste splashes with chocolate and smokey roasted malt. Vanilla isn't nearly as prominent as it advertises on the label, but it peeps its head out initially. Dark coffee is the undertone, but the smokey roast and chocolate dominates. Hops do have a bite and are noticeable more towards the aftertaste. Nice alcohol warmth on the back of the throat. Aftertaste is smoke and burnt wood.
This beer is just amazing. One of those dynamic Stouts that reminds us why we like exploring the world of craft beer.
