GREAT DIVIDE OAK AGED YETI IMPERIAL STOUT


Russian Imperial Stout | 9.50% ABV


Beer notes:

Pours super black with a very viscous flow. A sturdy tan head builds late in the pour and delicately laces the glass. Small amounts of vanilla and chocolate play out in the aroma as well as following straight into the taste. The nose is loaded with malt character which translates into a very heavy bodied beer. There is a very forward bitter flavor that occurs from the dark malts, hops are very subdued. The alcohol of the beer is not too forward but warms the throat nicely and melds well with a long finish.

Pairing notes:

Grill a nice thick NY Strip Steak to your liking, hopefully you like it medium-rare. The abundance of malt in the beer links very well with caramelized meat. Perhaps you’d top the steak with Gorgonzola which this beer would tear through using the bitterness from the malts. Although their subtle, the hops do a nice job clearing the palate. If you’d happen to have any left in the bottle from dinner, pair the rest with quality dark chocolate or a very rich chocolate cake. Once again, the malt body possesses some chocolate characteristics which would play nicely with your desert.
