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).

355 ml. bottle poured in to a Snifter. Pitch black with a dense, tanned head. Roasted aroma with rich malts, caramel, chocolate, coffee, liquorice. Rich hops: Citrus and spruce, some herbal hops. Taste is bitter. Full body with a creamy, bordering oily and a soft carbonation. Long lasting, roasted finish with rich malts and hops. Excellent Stout, very delicious.

I'm continuing to venture into imperial stout territory... this time I came across the famous Great Divide Yeti. To begin, I think this beer has the coolest shiny pitch black appearance, looks very appetizing. Smell is unusual, distinct, but good, as it smells of west coast hoppiness and some coffee, not quite what I would expect from a stout. In the flavor, this beer features a distinctive combination of roasted caramel maltiness contrasted with piney hops and solid hoppy bitterness. No alcohol notes that I discern, very fresh and balanced. It's flavorful and very smooth, although I personally don't quite enjoy the piney hop and heavy roasty malt combination. Still I can recognize this as a superior beer, and it finishes pretty clean and leaves me ready to savor another round!

Aroma: Toasted nuts, roasted coffee and chocolate, with a little sweet liqueur thrown in for good measure Appearance: Pours like slick black oil with a minimal, decadent, half-inch tan head Taste: Bitter and slightly salty, with a nice, long, lightly sour aftertaste Palate: Light bodied with a thin oily texture, flat with an astringent, bitter finish Overall: A good stout, but perhaps a little too bitter to be named excellent.

Served on tap in a chalice glass Appearance – The beer is served a deep-deep brown nearly black color with a one finger head of brown foam. The head holds on strong, slowly fading to leave a fantastic level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is a big, roasty, and sweet with a nice roasted malt smell mixed with plenty of milk chocolate, brown sugar, and some caramel. Along with these aromas comes some smells of coffee, bourbon and an earthy hop giving a heavy and nicely roasty aroma overall. Taste- A big sweet roasted malt and chocolate flavor greets the tongue. This is accompanied by flavors of vanilla and caramel mixed within. As the taste advances coffee starts working its way in, with it beginning lighter and really gaining strength toward the end of the taste. Along with the coffee comes some boozy flavors with some smoke mixed within, melding very well with an increase in the roasted flavors of the brew. More booziness and sweetness (with hints of vanilla) hits the tongue at the end of the taste and with the now somewhat stronger coffee flavor, the robust roast and the sweeter chocolate flavors of the brew ends up leaving a thick and warming taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is quite thick and creamy with a carbonation level that is slightly on the lower side. Both the thick-creamy body and the low carbonation are fantastic for the big, warming and boozy roasted flavors of the brew, making a great slow sipper. verall – A very tasty Russian imperial with a big sweet and boozed roasted flavor.
