Great Divide Espresso Oak Aged Yeti

At the Colorado Brewer's Guild Brunch at Freshcraft, I ordered a glass of Great Divide Espresso Oak Aged Yeti. The beer pours a black color with a frothy brown colored head. The aroma consists of espresso, coffee, chocolate, toasted malts, caramel, and oak. The taste is dry and bold with dark espresso bean and bacon flavors. Oak accents are strong with bold Belgian chocolate making up the backbone. The finish has a touch of vanilla and caramel. The alcohol content is 9.5% ABV. For a coffee infused beer, this one ranks near the top of them all. It had such a strong coffee presence build upon dark chocolate, and the oak really added the drying aspects to make it spectacular.
