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).

1FastSTi (3338) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 Poured from a 2005 bottle I picked up at Brennanís. This beer is a thick black body with a head thatís the color of cocoa powder. Excellent lacing. The aroma is dark chocolate and fully roasted malts. Pine is also apparent but masked pretty well. The flavor has some sort of strange hop that overcomes the chocolate. Almost a stale coffee. Something seems off but this bottle isnít stale. I think itís just the standard flavor Iím not liking. I love the BA version of this beer but donít think this one takes the cake. Very hoppy for an imperial stout. Does anyone know what hops they used? The palate is nice and medium-full bodied with a bitter finish. 7/5/6/4/13 = 3.5 >>>>>>>> rerate 12/10/05 >>>>>>>>>>>>&g the 2004 vintage per a friend thatís not on ratebeer. It has a dry mouthfeel. Much smoother than I remember. Perhaps its all about the aging? Sampled a 2005 vintage and it definitely is harsher. Thanks Todd! 7/5/8/4/16 = 4
2003 Maverick bottle: Heavy hops. Compared to the 04 Yeti, the hops held up quite well but arenít over-powering like a fresh 05 version. The beer has a dark brown head. Huge hoppiness to it. 8/5/8/4/17 = 4.2

jhliesen (742) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Bottle-Pour a deep, deep black with a brown head, lots of hops in the taste. Aroma of chocolate and coffee--gotta go with bstill that there was too much coffee taste for me.

Gread Divide is brewing some impressive beers and this one is among them. Darkest beer Iíve had in a while. Nice tan head forms quick and rises. A hint of red comes from the edge of my glass. Roasted barley, coffee, toffee and chocolate aromas. Full bodied, sweet, but not too, sharp roasted malt flavors - cold coffee, bitter chocolate and a linger dryness. A fantastic beer. Oak age Imperial is good too - had it at the Flying Saucer in San Antonio - what a treat!

jcr (2220) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Black with pleasing tan head. Aroma of heavily roasted malts, coffee with a hint of sweet toffee and chocoate. The flavor seemed strongly of chocolate and licorice, the latter especially evident in the bitter aftertaste. The high alcohol content was evident. There was also a hint of roasted, strong coffee. The palate was medium to heavy, but smooth enough.

PhillyBeer2112 (2528) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2005 Rather dark! Even as it pours, it seems opaque, but I can see the brownish color. Quite dark tan head as well, firm and creamy. Aroma of caramel and molasses, mild roast and maybe a touch of coffee, a sprinkle of something piney. Full, rich and rounded. On the whole sweet, but its more than that. The sweetness blends right into a strongly hoppy finish. Hop flavorings seem difficult to identify mixed with such strong roasted chocolate malts, but are otherwise clearly apparent. Perhaps the hoppiest imperial stout Iíve had. Full bodied, but not too heavy - instead dangerously drinkable...I had to intentionally slow down on this one! Alcohol in the finish, warming in the chest, heady.
