Tonight’s beer is brewed by The Great Divide, one of the many variants of their world-class beer YETI beer. This one is aged on oak chips and brewed with cocoa nibs and cayenne peppers. What an experience!

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a snifter. Purchased at Yankee Spirits in Attleboro, MA.
Appearance- Pours a pitch black, oily, opaque body with a slow rising, creamy, bubbly, milk chocolate colored head that reduces slowly and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Absolutely beautiful and near perfect.
Smell- The smell is definitely not in your face but still very inviting. The most prominent aromas are freshly ground coffee, mocha, and rich milk chocolate. Slightly metallic.
Taste- This beer really lives up to it’s name as far as taste goes. From start to finish, it’s full of HUGE fudgy, chocolatey, cocoa notes. It’s like drinking a chocolate fudge cake. In the background is vanilla which is probably brought on by the oak, but it isn’t as forward as I would have prefered (-.25). The finish is nice and roasty, and the cayenne peppers add a little spicy note which really works!
Mouthfeel- Rich, thick, full-bodied, low carbonation.
A great variation of Yeti which definitely lives up to it’s name. If you like chocolate, you will undoubtedly love this beer. Very nice.
