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).

Pours thick with a dark head. Smells of mainly caramel over chocolate and coffee. Very smooth feel, impossible to tell alcohol percentage. Roasted flavor with hints of taste matching the aroma with very hoppy finish.

peterstrongale (43) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Black coloured beer with fluffy brown head on top. Aroma is generous, slight sweet with caramel and fruit touches but also with tons of coffee and black chocolate. The taste is powerfull but not overpowering. It is rich, mild, elegant-fruity and has a tasteful and overwhelming caracter of burned malts and coffee. A rich, smooth and tastefull beer.

Gigantic head tan in color leaving nice lacing. The stout is opaque black. Sweet rich smell of malts and hops. Very straight forward roasty flavor with hints of coffee and chocolate. Smooth on the tongue that turns to a nice bitter afterfinish. Nice!

Just a fantastic Imperial Stout. Great dark amber head, impenetrable brown color. the 9.5% alcohol deftly balanced. Nice kick of hops at the end. In my book only bested by the Oak Aged Yeti.

Thanks Secret Santa for this one--deep black pour with malty chocolate aroma and molasses balanced by rich piney hops, less burnt roastiness than I expected, this is pretty easy and pleasant to sip, and doesn’t taste like 9.5%.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 28, 2006
12oz bottle from Picadilly in Champaign, IL Pours dark brown, almost black with a huge brown head. Soft carbonation and oily mouthfeel. Aroma of coffee grounds, black patent malt, dark chocolate, and at warmer temps...alcohol. Nicely blended flavors of coffee, bitter dark chocolate, and molasses. Semi dry, mildly hoppy, and chalky finish. This is a fine example of an Imperial Stout. Better than the OA Yeti.

troopie (2290) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Poured black with thick brown lasting head. Aroma of malt, with piney notes. Complex and well balanced flavour, notes of chocolate, coffee, malt and caramel. Hoppy finish without being too hoppy. A fine example of the imperial stout.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - NOV 22, 2006
From a 22 oz. bomber bottle with a blurb along the left side of label, no year or freshness date I could find. Poured a lightly ruby hued dark chocolate brown with a rocky, creamy tan head, small amount of ringed sticking. Aromas of dark ripe berry fruitiness, hints of vanilla, coffee with a light chocolate, and small whiffs of alcohol. Good moderate carbonation and a chewy, creamy smooth, slick, full bodied mouthfeel. Smooth, easy sipping, satisfying taste, roasted chocolate mingled with coffee, a subtle berry fruitiness, a little vanilla and molasses, a citric hop bite towards the end, the alcohol is in the background and warming in the palate, and a dry roasted malty, fruity finish. A really nice RIS from Great Divide, a pleasant drinkability, very nice on a cold, windy midwest evening.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Pours black and opaque - almost tar-like - with a light brown, dissipating head. Fat aroma of hard roasted malt. Extremely solid body with lots of sweetish, burned malt with a very distinct bitterness. A tough beer to drink and digest. 171106

22 oz bottle. Dark black with dark brown head. Lacing and inch or two tall. Toasted malt aroma and taste. Oak aged Yeti is a step above, but this is still darn good.
