COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Divide’s Yeti Imperial Stout is an onslaught of the senses. An almost viscous, inky-black brew, Yeti opens with a massive, roasty, chocolate, coffee malt flavor that eventually gives way to rich toffee and burnt caramel notes. Packed with an enormous quantity of American hops, Yeti’s hop profile reveals a slightly citrusy, piney, and wonderfully dry hoppy finish. 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

This beer deserves 5. Everything is right. The body is black with a soft khaki head. Aroma is right on point with roast, chocolate, toffee, licorice, herbal, bitter and sweet. Rich flavor of roasted malt, licorice, burnt sugar, and chocolate. Very full body. Very delicious beer. Had this in south carolina at wild oats taproom, which has great burgers as well.

22oz bottle. Pours inky-black as the description suggested. Tan head with nice lace. Nose is a nice sweet roast with toffee. Opens with quite a punch of roast flavor, more toffee and chocolate than coffee. Finishes malty and sweet but fades out with a nice dry bitter taste. Really nice. New favorite stout.

This one is really classy. Cream and soda mixed up with some coffee and roasted malt. The big ABV makes that one even more interesting. I could not have imagined a better one to start a saturday evening.

McTapps (3031) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - APR 19, 2014
Bottle from Meilby - thank you so much for this gem, Kenni! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with low, beige-brown head and medium body. Aroma of chocolate and torf. Taste of strong coffee, espresso, dark chooclate, nuts, dark bread and plums. Dry finish. Highly quaffable beer - big enjoyment.

HIGHB4LL (280) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2014
On tap. Appearance: black color, two fingeers of oatmealy black head, ok lacing. Aroma: alcohol, coffee, chocolate, light roast, light flora. Palate: full body, soft carbonation, alcohol and oily texture, bitter lasting finish. Taste: sweet chocolate start, great transition into light bitter finish. Overall, one of the best. Nuff said

Bottle aged for 1 year. Smoke and toffee in the nose, maybe some light hop aromas. Lots of smoke and ash in across the palate with a very long dry ash finish. The hops are there in the aromas but the bitter feels more like really dark chocolate. This beer has a lot to offer and I personally think it needs another year to mellow out a little to allow the sweeter notes to come forward.

SimonTja (99) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2014
Black with good brown head for 9.5%. Roasty aroma, some wood, coffee, bitter chocolate, earthy leather. Taste of pumpernickel, coffee, a lot of roast, great hop background which gives a slightly piney and a earthy input, with a mellow bitterness which is still decent but doesn’t hold back. Very nice mouthfeel and good drinkability.

Dark brown almost Black colour work a very thin Brown head and a roasted aroma. The taste is heavy and roasted too with a slight bitterness in the after taste. I am not a big fan of stiuts but this is a good one.
