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 Lord!! Humongous beer. Probably an average 12 pack’s worth of hops and malt in a single pint-six bottle. The color of (over)used moter oil. Has a significant lasting head. Lot’s of licorice in the nose but overpowered by malt. Tastes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate . Extremely thick. Maybe have been psychological, but my glass felt kinda heavier than normal when full. ;) I bet there are 500 calories in a bottle of this stuff. The three main tastes are MALT, HOPS AND alcohol. Very generously hopped. I had to drink this slowly. Warms up very very nicely. Hard hitting hops finish. The stout for hopheads.

The aroma is caramel, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and molasses. The appearance is black with a large brown head. The flavor is astringently bitter with all the elements from the aroma in the taste. It is well roasted without being burnt. The palate is nice and thick. The hops make there presence known in the finish. This one has a lot going for it in the aroma and appearance categories. But in the taste department I have had better.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2006 Poured motor oil-ish with brown head. Big aroma of syrupy molasses, caramel malts, chocolate and alcohol. Flows into my mouth thick and chewy yet silky smooth. Wow! Loads of malt flavors: Caramel, chocolate, coffee, alcohol too, brown sugar and black patent roasted (burnt) malt. Very nice chatty beer.

Poured a very pitch dark black color with a nice chocolatey head that yielded great lacing. The aroma was resinous, somewhat pine-like, and full of the usual stout aromas of light roasted coffee and chocolate. The flavor was much of the same with the alcohol fairly detectable. Best part of this beer was the smoothness, the nice silky and creamy mouthfeel. Finish was resinous and nicely bittered (I don’t normally like hoppy stouts, either).

When you pours this you quickly smell and see that this is not your average brewed stout. This one has characther. Thick black with brown head. Strong chocolate and coffee notes. Filling in the mouth. The finish is lasting and pleasant bitter. WAUW! (Best imperial stout ive tasted to date)

Nice dark colorwith brown head. Hints of coffee, chocolate, molasses and toffee hit the nose and palate. Slight hint of alcohol, but a definite sweetness as this stout warms a bit. I liked it better as it warmed up, the myriad of flavors was much more evident and enjoyable.

Bomber...Pours thick and black with a 1/2 inch to 1 inch cocoa colored head with some larger bubbles in the head. Aromas are molasses, licorice, raisin, coffee. Tastes are similar to the smell and also a detection of vanilla and dark fruits. Rich and thick palate. A good Impy stout, not quite to the level of the oak aged version though. Still a very solid brew!

Diogène (1068) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2006
Deep black, nice medium dark brown head. Amazing aroma of toffee, chocolate, malt, vanilla, mango... The taste is roasted malt by the ton with coffee, toffee and dark chocolate and a long bitter aftertaste. One of the best Imperial Stout I have tried!

I truly love this beer! Being from Colorado I am extremely proud of Great Divide for offering such an amazing beer (well, all of their beers are pretty amazing if you ask me) Anyways, this beer is motor-oil thick. Laces up nicely, pours extremely dark. Very nice malty flavors with chocolate and dark fruits such as figs and raisons. Enough bitter in here to keep the malts in check, but nothing in this beer seems overwhelming. I am always amazed when I have this beer, and i’ve had it hundreds of times (lucky Old Chicago right near my house sells the oak aged version of this on tap! YUM!)
