Great Divide Yeti Oak Aged Imperial Stout

Great Divide Brewing Co

USA

I've been going through a "big beer" phase recently, mainly because they've recently become available to me and piqued my curiosity. Still, this one's been sitting in my beer fridge a month, waiting for me to screw my courage up enough to try it. Well, a couple nights ago, I did it. Has a downright viscous pour, absolutely jet black and doesn't let the least bit of light through. Dark brown head. The room fills with malt aroma. The first sip is positively Homeric. Malty, chocolatey, with a definite alcoholic bite. I unwisely drank the entire bomber, because at 9.2% ABV, it snuck up and clocked me, but good. As absolutely delicious and smooth as this was, I don't think I'll be re-addressing this one soon. I'm such a wuss...
