COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Divideís 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, Yetiís hop profile reveals a slightly citrusy, piney, and wonderfully dry hoppy finish. 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

This is a truly pitch black beer with a huge, delicious, creamy and brown head. The aroma has notes of coffee, dark roasted malt and caramel. The flavour is fantastic!! It has loads o dark roasted malt, hops and before the big hoppy symphony closes the ball, there are a lot of notes: Sweetness, caramel, coffee, nougat, licorice and chocolate. Itís very complex and exciting and worthy of a high score...!

Beautiful opaque brown coloring with a nice carmel head. Maybe I was too enamored by the look of Yeti, but the taste just didnít hit the mark. I found this beer to be too bitter, not in a good hoppy way but in a soy-sause kinda way. Head retention was non-existent. Left a tar-like coating in the glass.

The color was a dark black/ brown with no light penetration. The head was a mud brown, thin, and creamy. The aroma was molasses, soy-sausce, sweet and malty. The palate was medium/ thick body, and wasnít very carbonated. The finihs was warm and waxy. This beer left a yellow film on the glass.

I think Heathen has it right. Pours a black black brew, not quite the oil consistency i like, but black nonetheless. The aroma is sweet (bueno) and then there is this hop that shows up (reminds me of 06í Storm King). The aroma also has some chocolate and slight slight roast to it, alcohol was not present for me. the flavor had a mild hop bit (not expecting), roasted flavor, coffee, and didnít have the alcohol backbone iíve come to expect from the style. The palate was the typical full, burnt, smooth and lacked any individual charm. The finish was warm (only hint of alcohol) and was a little thin. Overall, a it is up and down an imperial stout. Sadly the only unique spin they put on it is undesirable (by me anyways). Lacks the complexity and "wow" to get a great score but is still solid enough for the 4.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 25, 2007
THOUGHTS: To me an Imperial Stout should smell a little sweeter with underlying hops, not the other way around. Great aroma, but not quite good for the style. That was what I initially what I thought and then as it warmed the aroma became much more balanced. A little too much hop aftertaste. The aroma may have changed as time went by, but the flavor was the same throughout ó sweet up front but overpowering hops in the finish tha actually lasted into my next beer, which was luckily not one I was going to rate. If there was a little less hops I would have gave it a near perfect rating. TECHNICAL: Poured a dark red-brown coming out of the bottle and looked opaque black with a red tint in the glass. There was a large, light brown head that was mostly lasting and left excellent lacing. The aroma was moderately to heavily malty (chocolate and caramel) and heavy turning lighter grapefruit hops. The initial flavor was heavy sweetness and light bitterness, and the finish flavor was moderate to heavy sweetness and heavy to harsh bitterness with a very long duration. The body was full and both creamy and syrupy with a metallic finish.

A massive brew here in many senses of the term - assertive, complex. An oily black hole of a beer with a capping of brown foam - this thing even has some legs to it, that is how thick it is. Massive notes of roasted malt backed up by chocolate, burnt sugars and a faint tinge of alcohol. Definitely detecting some citrus as well, perhaps grapefruit. The beer basically invades your mouth on first sip: chocolate, coffee, profound burnt sweetness that all melds quite well into a decisive and distinctive bitter finish. Almost abrasively bitter, the sweetness of the front of this brew is balanced so sublimely by the dry finish.

This is a good Imperial Stout. Coffee, malt, and hoopy flavors. Finishes clean and smooth.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 22, 2007
22oz bottle: Pours totally opaque black with medium to large creamy dark brown/red head. Aroma is very chocolatey, creamy, bit of ash, cherry, honey. Flavor is malty, bit of ash, hints of bitter malts, touch of cherry and vanilla, with a balanced, silky finish, just on the sweet side. A very nice IS, I like it.

Thick pouring stout with a pleasant hoppy after taste. An easy description of itís flavor is chocolate carmel and cascade hops.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Poured an oily, virtually opaque dark brown with a gorgeous two finger brown head. Great lacing. Alcohol is noted with the initial pour, but dissipates as this one opens up. Burnt wood comes through as does a hint of sweet caramel and bitter chocolate. Alcohol flavor is strong initially as well but it to gives way as this monster opens up. I was truly impressed with the way the 9.5% abv wasnít really noticed after this stout opens up. The flavor of burnt wood, coffee, caramel and some chocolate are balanced against a nice hoppy finish. Incredible mouthfeel in this full bodied, creamy/oily stout.
