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).

12 oz bottle - pours thick inky black, with a nice sized tan head. Huge aromas of both dark chocolate and lots of hops. Also some alcohol in the aroma. Some pleasing sourness as well. Thick oily mouthfeel, spreading all the flavours across the palate. Black plum, coffee, chocolate, roasted barley, hops and a creaminess as well. More alcohol in the back of the mouth. Superbly bitter dry finish that lasts for quite a while. Excellent overall.

Bomber. Pours an opaque black with a lacy tan head. Malty chocolate nose. Full, oily body with minimal carbonation. The taste starts sweet with coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts, all the standard imperial stout goodness. Lightly bitter and smoky finish.

I have some kind of mental block with giving perfect scores so tIhis is as perfect as I can get. The flavor this beer has should be illegal. Thick black pour with a tan thin head. Taste is of coffee, chocolate, and malt with a smokey undertone. The bitterness made me smile...the milky mouthfeel made my heartbeat. If I weren’t married I would have proposed to this snow beast then and there.

Blach pour like oil but thicker. Head is light brown and long lasting. Aroma is coffee and choclate. Flavor was a wonderful bitter. This beer is thick, it’s like a beer shake....and it is GOOD!

This imperial stout was confusing to me. Not as smooth as other imperial stouts, I had a Samual Smith Imperial Stout right after it and the Samual Smith was smoother. The appearance was very nice with a jet black body and a medium tan with a hint of red in the head. Very sweet aroma again could not put my finger on it what smell i smelled, maybe very bready. The alcohol was in the forfront, but the taste was not as bitter as other imperial stouts.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Secret Santa. Pours an opaque black with a massive mocha colored head. Lots of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Lots of flavor in this brew too. Initially, there is plenty of roasted malt with chocolate also very present. The coffee is there as well, but not as strong as the other two. After a few seconds, a long, bitter finish kicks in from the hops. There is also some heat from the alcohol in the finish. Really, really good stuff!

Great stout. Head dissapates quickly, really nice lacing though. Aftertaste is complex mix of caramel, coffee, and chocolate, and last quite long. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth. An exemplary stout a MUST try. The oak aging of the other stout adds a hint of flavor and makes it just a hint better.

Another lost review from earlier this fall. My notes state that it was off balanced, with not enough malt: a bit too sweet and the alchohol comes on too strong. Thanks to my wife, Quillaraymi, for bringing this beer back from Panama.
