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).

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 Thick black with a brown chocolate hue. The smell of coffee and alcohol rushes from the bottle. Velety smooth with a very sharp hop bite finish. A good stout.

Thank you Tidiaguy! This beer has a delightfully soft creamy texture but is loaded with flavor. It packs a punch with its roasted layer of coffee, caramel malt and chocalate notes swirled around in an array of hops. It is complex but incredibly balanced and tasty. I like this one better than the oak aged version.

Really fabulous beer. Exactly what an imperial stout should taste like. Loaded with chocolate, toffee and caramel flavors.

Very dark color, like black! I really like this.. right when it hits my mouth it tastes bitter followed by sweet flower taste and then finishes bitter again. It has a real burt taste. I don’t usually drink stouts on a regular basis, but i do know that this one was better. It didn’t seem to fill me up as much as the others, these kinda of beers are usually like a meal and although this was like a meal.. it wasn’t as bad.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 26, 2006
22 oz bottle. Poured thick and black with a brown head that laced the glass. Big malt nose with molasses, caramel, and chocolate notes. Flowery hops round out the aroma. Slick and oily with lots of alcohol flavor and a burnt roastiness (almost tarry) that lingers along with the alcohol and some hop bitterness. Strong molasses. Very bold. Successively sweet and then acidic.

"Maverick" 2003 edition. Beer pours a nearly opaque black-brown color with a small, light brown, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma is thick and huge! Malty with sweet heavy notes of burned caramel, roasted grain and molasses and moderate notes of black coffee; Hoppy with heavy notes of resin/pine and herbs; Strong miscellaneous notes of sherry/cognac, resin/pine and smoke. The flavor is heavily bitter, lightly sweet and lightly acidic with a long, warm, heavily bitter, lightly sweet finish. The body is full, the texture is syrupy and the carbonation is soft.

A little lighter in color than most imperial stouts. Pretty roasty in flavor. Good beer, but ive had better imperial stouts.

From the bottle this beer pours thick black with a small creamy brown head. Nice smokey malt aroma with waves of chocolate. Plenty of roasted malt, caramel, a burned wood character and a potent bitter hop finish with notes of juniper berry. Fairly full swallow with a tinge of alcohol tickling the throat. This brew lives up to its reputation and I am glad that it is finally available in Georgia. I am also quite happy I have another bottle in the chill.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - APR 19, 2006
Impenetrable dark brown with a large head. Nice aromas of roasted malt, caramel and chocolate. Smooth roasted coffee flavor. Alcohol takes on a woody, roasted character as it warms. Good balance of intense hops and malt sweetness. Finishes with a malty expresso flavor. Powerful and good.
