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).

Beardown (1) - Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2015 does not count
Great appearance! I feel the aroma is lacking, but the taste makes up for that pretty quickly, big roasted initial taste, Carmel and chocolate followed by a Starbucks style coffee aftertaste. Very low carbonation (at least where I am having it right now) which works very well. Can taste a bit too much of the alcohol which puts it a few pegs behind old Rasputins legendary version of the style. Yeti is still in my top 5 in the imperial stout category.

Gentle_Ben (22) - Rutland, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2015
Pours from the bottle like treacle with a reddish crema head. The nose is coffee, chocolate and hops. In the mouth it does exactly as described. Massive hits from the chocolate and roasted malts, caramel and boozy sweetness. This is cut perfectly with the hops leaving a delicious dry mouthfeel. Pretty flawless although too highly flavoured to drink more than one per session!

Bottle - pours thick and black with a lovely deep brown at the edges that is briefly visible as it is swirled. Pleasing sweet toffee aroma with a hint of coffee. The mouthfeel is soft and heavy, but carbonated enough to stay lively. The expected roast nut and coffee flavours are there initially along with bonfire toffee. Then a wave of the alcohol laced with brandy soaked fruit finishes it off, with a dry biscuity aftertaste from the hops. Very tasty combination of different flavours, but a bit too much of the booze and hop bitterness comes through for my preference.

Erbenaut (11) - VANTAA, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2015
Tap at William K. Fredrikinkatu, Helsinki. Aroma is roasty, resinous with some citrus from dry hops, and shows caramel, chocolate and coffee. Some woody notes and distinct warm alcohol. Appearance is black, clear, head has brown thick and durable foam. Heavy sweetness, very bitter though well balanced, full bodied, thick mouth feel, average carbonation, long finish. A decent imperial stout.

tfontana (369) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle pour into shaker glass from Craft Beer Cellar, Amesbury, MA. Aroma is dark fruits, chocolate and slight coffee. Appearance is opaque black with 1/2 finger width light brown fluffy head with great persistence and nice sticky lacing. Sparkle seen at sides of glass. Taste is early sweet mix of chocolate and dark fruits with mild alcohol, middle with caramel/toffee and mix of roasted malt/coffee sweet and bitter at the end. Palate is full bodied with amazing creamy texture, warmth from the alcohol in the throat and stomach and pleasant bitter roasted dry finish. Overall, this one lives up to its reputation. There is complexity at every turn with the only knock on perfection being a slightly muted and less complex aroma than the rest, but this is nitpicking to the highest degree. Worth every penny.
