Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout
TJ's in Paoli had the Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout on draft at the Pliny the Younger tasting, so I decided to give it a try. The beer has a black color with a foamy tan head. The aroma consists of oak and chocolate. The taste is nutty and chocolate, but very smooth and good. I was really impressed with the oak accents that were incorporated in this beer. The alcohol content is 9.5% ABV. The balance between oak and chocolate in this beer was amazing, and the oak really helped bring out the toasted malts. The alcohol provided a nice warming effect without being too bitey.
