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).

Good stuff, but I think that they overdid it on the hops. On the other hand, nice to have an extra hoppy variation on the style for a change. I like the special versions of Yeti more (esp. the Oatmeal one).

Wow. Just gorgeous. Beautiful burnt auburn head. Just the right amount of carbonation. All the right flavors of an imperial stout. Very initially muted bitterness but comes on later in the aftertaste....in a good way. My favorite imperial stout to date.

Bottled March 25, 2015. This stuff pours black as pond sludge. Extremely heavy on the palette. Overpoweringly rich with black coffee notes and bitterness. Sipped thru half a glass hoping it’d get better, bit it didn’t. Pitched it. Not worth the coin.

On tap at Umami Burger with Erica last night (4th of July, 2015). Snifter. Black or close enough. Roasted, almost burnt coffee abounds in the malt profile and there is a nice, fresh hop character as well which combines with the chocolate to make this very refreshing when served cold. Dessert-like. The roast/burnt element was a little too pervasive but otherwise great.

Ok, ingen är perfekt så vi börjar med det tråkiga: Det finns en del spretighet i smaken - lite okammad i Yeti-pälsen. (Det var väl första och sista gången jag fick skriva det.) Om vi nu bortser från det är det här en sjuhselsikes åktur. En ohejdad lavin av arom och smak nerför Tibetanska bergssluttningar som man vill vara med om om och om igen.

Draft. Pours black with thick creme colored head. Some sweetness with a coffee bitter finish. I wish it was a bit thicker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blind RIS experiment [Sample 5/20, 3/30/2015] Poured by myself. Lovely thick inky black pour, like for real used oil. Dense dark brown head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is odd -- unsweetened baking chocolate / cocoa powder laced with windex. At first opening I swear I smelled nail polish remover, but that was gone on subsequent sniffs. Hops have a spicy, floral character. Pretty potent hop component. Taste/texture combo leaves the impression of sooty coffee grounds, like right at the end of a French press. Reasonably dry with tons of bitterness. Coffee and roast, very little sweetness. This is one roasty bitter son of a gun. Full body, appropriate carbonation. Lasting bitter finish. As it warms further there’s this sour dark roasted fruit component that’s pretty unpleasant. Doughy on the midpalate, harsh alcohol burn. Overall: are all non-barrel-aged imperial stouts unappealing to me, or have I just been front-loading? Also, aftertaste reminiscent of edamame? What’s with that?

My favorite beer. Smooth pour. Excellent chocolate taste. High APV so be careful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tiefschwarz im Glas, Kaffee brauner Schaum, würzig malzig, röstaromen in der Nase, würzig malzig im Geschmack, extrem trocken im Abgang, leichte Schoko und Kaffee Aromen. Nicht so meins
