This is always one of my favorite beers to revisit. It pours like motor oil with an awesome, quickly dissipating head. It’s extremely rich, but not sweet or overwhelming.
The ABV (9.5%) is virtually non-existent and the combination of chocolate and oak give this iteration of Yeti a fantastic balance between roasted coffee, chocolate syrup, and vanilla.
To top it all off? A dash of cayenne pepper in the finish that becomes more apparent as the beer reaches room temperature. Once the heat hits the back of your tongue (and always just barely there) it makes you want another sip to cleanse the heat, which causes a
vicious beautiful circle of drinking.
Great Divide makes some of the best beers in the country that are constantly and widely available, with Yeti being their flagship line. The price tag of Yeti is never low, but always worth it.
