A deep, rusty brown body, wholly opaque, with a dark tan head. Mahogany in depth and mood. Scent of coffee, dust, earth, and wood chips. Taste is espresso syrup, roasted malt, coffee, earth, resin, and compost. Overall, it’s another amazing, layered, and complex creation for the Yeti brand, and for Great Divide. Keep them coming.
