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: AUG 10, 2005 22oz bottle. Opaque black pour, thick and syrupy from the looks, with tan head. Huge semi-sweet and dark chocolate aroma with lots of raisins and some plum. Creamy thick mouthfeel. Huge inital flavor of sweet chocolate and roasted malts, then some raisins and plums, and turns into a fairly bitter bite at the end which lingers a little. Some smoke and toffee/coffee to the flavor. As it warms, the initial flavors are like luxurious chocolate milk. 9.5% is well hidden. Simply awesome.

22oz bottle received as a gift from my Secret Santa.. Thanks Mullman - Pours black and thick with a brown creamy head that laces quite well. Aromas of chocolate covered raisins, plums and a bit of coffee. Flavor is beautifully smokey, quite coffee-like, roasted malts, some plum, a touch of caramel, and a great chocolate coating over it all. The taste is quite complex and quite delicious. The palate is amazing. Absolutely great feel in the mouth thick and chewy but oh so creamy and smooth. So rich and so delicious.. I hardly noticed the 75 IBUs, but then I hardly noticed the 9.5% alcohol either. I’m looking forward to trying the Oak Aged.. I find it difficult to figure out how this could improve much more. Great stuff.

IndianaRed (2313) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Bottle Pours a moderately thick oily black with a chocolate tan head. Aromas are of prunes, grapes, sweet chocolate and a little coffee and alcohol. Lots of thick sheeting lacing. Flavors are mostly dark smokey charcoal notes with some coffee and dark pitted fruits.Quite bitter with hops and dark roasted flavors as well. The trailer is a lingering bitter, woody sense. Very thick smooth feel. Terrific.

I’m finishing this one up right now, and it is amazing. A million flavors going on all at once.Coffee, caramel dominate the aroma. Palate is distinctly bitter with the addition of some alcohol. Great, great stout.

Pours a heavily viscous motor oil-like black goodness. Blackhole like quality, with no light shining through whatsoever. It sucks in the light of the shade when I even attempt to spy out some red hues. A thick dark burned chocolate chip cookie colored head oozes up after the pour to a thick three fingers. Eventually dies down to an eighth to a quarter of an inch of clinging foam that leaves trademark lacing. Perfection. The aroma is noteworthy, with all the expected flavors of molasses, espresso, bourbon. It smells thick and chewy. I already want a thick piece of chocolate cake to enjoy it with. There are three levels of flavor here. Initial rush of malty sweetness as the molasses shows off its goodness. Light bitterness, almost hoplike in nature comes next and perfectly compliments the former. It finishes nicely bitter, like the remains of a turkish coffee. You know, that thick chewy blackness at the bottom of the espresso cup. I always mix a little table sugar in it and spoon it into my mouth. I get wonderful images of seaside restaurants in the Meditteranean enjoying after dinner coffee. As with that image, I think I’d need a limoncello just to clear the bitter and sweet mixture that has infected and taken over my tastebuds. Mmm, the thick and chewy, but easy, mouthfeel is captivating. 9.5%! Are you kidding me! This one isn’t even close to being a sipper. I could, evilly and stupidly, pound this baby at happy hour and pay the price. Yes, mid west trips will have me picking this up again.

Maverick 2003 bottle. Been sitting on this for awhile. Pours dark oily black with minimal beige head that fades to a ring of film. Initial aroma is chocolate and licorice/alcohol. Tiny bit of coffee through the middle, then a dark burnt grain overload. Flavor is dominated by dark grain bitterness, with lots of dark fruit. Turning a little sour as it warms. Wonder how much life these have left.

MMMmMMM Yeti, what else can I say. Even in mid-summer it brings a huge smile to my face. Aroma huge roast, chocolate and coffee. Pours a cavernous black with a chocolately head that billows and beckons. The flavor, chocolate,coffee,burnt malts. Palate was thick and rich, filling, I almost didn’t eat dinner. Overall damn good, thankfully I have more. Great with steak!!

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2006 Pours pitch black color with thick tan head that dissipates slowly. Rich taste of chocolate, coffee, and malt with hoppy finish and hint of alcohol aftertaste. I enjoy, but I’m not a huge fan of stouts, but this is a tasty one.
