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).

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Dark nearly black color tinted red ever so slightly, a milk chocolate colored head floats atop. Tastes like it has some coffee/chocolate hints with a little bit of a roasted flavor.

awebster (165) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Thick and black. As full-bodied a beer as Iíve come across. A very hoppy stout, itís almost an IPA. Good and strong. Dry burnt finish.

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 10, 2005
Bottle: This is great. Beautiful dark color with a light brown head. It is bursting forth witrh a complexity of roasted flavors including chocolate, coffee, charcoal, and burnt grains. It has a great feel and is a pleasant drink.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2005
This is the darkest beer that I have tried without a doubt, itís like a black hole; my lights are going dim. The nose is very expressive with plentiful aromas of caramel, chocolate, coffee, hops, malt, and hazelnuts. One would assume that the beer is going to be full-bodied and it is, but itís not too sweet. The palate dries out nicely. On the palate the most dominate flavor is dark bitter chocolate followed by fresh brewed coffee. The hops seem to be appropriately balanced in accordance with the beers gravity. I expected more from the finish, itís by no means short, but I thought that I was going to be bowled over with a long complex finish. A grand Imperial Stout has been crafted by Great Divide that covers all the style bases.

rdawson321 (145) - USA - DEC 6, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2006 Pours like oil with a thick lasting head. Aroma fills the room like freshly brewed coffee. Exceptionally complex, you need the full 22 oz bottle to find everything. Rather high ABV is masked very well (until you try to stand up). Super heavy and super hoppy, notes of chocolate, caramel, smoke, toffee, and brown sugar. Very smooth, very thick, very good. Expensive brew, but worth every penny.

An excellent beer. One of the heaviest beers I have ever consumed (think 10W-5). The flavour well masks the very high alcohol content (chocolate and malt).

kfarrnd (113) - Oldsmar, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Pours out like motor oil - thick, brownish-black, viscous - with a medium tan head that clings nicely to the glass. The aroma wafted up with a strong roasted malt and chocolate tone with some coffee and caramel notes. The flavor is just massive roasted malt in the beginning with some milk chocolate sweetness, coffee and smoke undertones and then finishes with a very interesting hoppy flavor. I had a hard time beliving this came out of a bottle because it was so smooth and rich as if it came out on a nitrogen tap. Itís an extremely complex beer, and the awesome flavor hides itís high alcohol content very well. Just about as good a beer that I have had thus far.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 28, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 One of the thickest beers Iíve ever come across. Pours is midnight black, viscous, with no head. Roasted malts, chocolate, and toffee dominate the nose. Very thick mouthfeel with the same flavors. Light smokiness and caramel come through with it. The end is a nice bitter hop, which is different end for such a heavy beer. Donít plan on having a heavy meal within 24 hours of this one.

pours rich and thick, with a nice dark creamy head. aroma is of perfectly roasted malt living in balance with a strong hoppy undertone. velvet mouth feel. the beer has a great start and finishes with a bang, every sip is a joy.
