Open it! Great Divide Espresso Oak Aged Yeti

Beer of the day No.2 and it's a biggie, one of the beers that I've recently had on draught at The Rake that I have been particularly impressed with. On draught it's a mere 11.5% abv, in bottle it's an almost sessionable 9.5%!


The first thing you get is coffee, the second, coffee the third co...you get the point! A MAHOOSIVE beer that is so drinkable that you won't know you've had too much until well, you've had too much!
I'm pissed, not too pissed but nicely buzzing and I know I've been drinking a rather titanic beer today. Worth every penny of the 12.50 that Utobeer sell it for. This beer is one of the favourites of the Great Divide Brewing crew and is now one of mine too.
If you have a bottle anywhere in your home then for the love of all that's holy, OPEN IT!

So it's coffee, right?

I've wanted this beer for AGES. I've got the Oaked one but who wants just the oak AND oaked version?! Whatever. I need to open my oaked one. The 'normal' yeti is fantastic. I'm glad you opened it and made me jealous...

Loving the "almost sessionable 9.5%!"

Talk about "I see dead people!"

For a couple of years, a bottle of Yeti at the Rake, mid-afternoon, has been one of our pre-Christmas treats. This sounds even *more* of a treat.

When I had this [draft version] last night, I coudln't get past Frys Turkish Delight. Not in a bad way ... it just has the exact same aroma.
