Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti

Yeti poured a pitch black color with a finger width brown head. The aroma is loaded with huge amounts of dark malt, coffee and some chocolate. The body is low on carbonation and very rich. Tons of coffee up front, with chocolate in the middle and tons of malt throughout. There is some weetness up front before lots of bitterness on the finish. There was some hanging lace left on the glas.

Overall this is one of the more interesting oak aged beers I have had. The nose is phenominal and the body is great up front. The finish is a little harsh in terms if bitterness and the transition lacks enough that it almost seems like two different beers. I think this is a decent brew, but nothing I will be seeking out again.

I'm a huge fan of the regular Yeti and Barrel Aged Yeti (which is pretty pricey and impossible to find), but I've yet to try the Oak Aged! The blog looks great, keep it up!
