Great Divide Espresso Oak Aged Yeti

Return to List

This Yeti Series selection is a bold and powerful stunner. It's infused with Denver's own Pablo's espresso, the prominent coffee character marrying harmoniously with the beer's roasted malt core and additional notes of vanilla bean, Baker's chocolate, cocoa powder, caramelized sugar, leather and charred oak. The mouthfeel is velvety and smooth, while a dank, resinous hop profile unfolds on the close alongside similarly dry flavors of bitter cocoa, coffee and cigar-box spice. It's wonderfully dense, flavorful and forward now, but some cellaring for another year or two after release could coax out additional layers of complexity. Lauren Buzzeo
