As its name implies, Great Divide's Yeti is a colossus of a beer. This imperial stout features rich roasted flavor along with notes of chocolate and caramel. It's full-bodied, powerful, and greatly warming. Denverites love these beers, and there are different versions of it all over, so we sampled every one we could get our hands on. The base beer was great, but an oak-aged version of the beer that gained extra complexity and a gentle vanilla note was our absolute favorite. An oak-aged espresso version added more roast flavor through the addition of cold-pressed coffee while a chocolate oak-aged version pushed the cocoa level further than we thought was possible.
