No 90 - Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout (USA)

Aaaah - two great Imperial Stouts in a row - well, it was needed to wash the last snow away - now its spring time! :-)
This one has a deep, tight, heavy nose with lots of chocolate with high cocoa content - think at least 90%! - tar, soap and that lovely scent of an autumn walk in the forest. Very deep. A lovely warm scent.
The taste is concentrated and intense with a great structure and masses of black, sweet fruit. The bitterness cuts through the massive fruit in a stunning way. Very, very long. Some notes of balsa wood and bakelite in the end, probably from the oak? Stunning!

95p   (tasted from bottle - 2011/03)
