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).

From a 22 oz. bomber bottle with a blurb along the left side of label, no year or freshness date I could find. Poured a lightly ruby hued dark chocolate brown with a rocky, creamy tan head, small amount of ringed sticking. Aromas of dark ripe berry fruitiness, hints of vanilla, coffee with a light chocolate, and small whiffs of alcohol. Good moderate carbonation and a chewy, creamy smooth, slick, full bodied mouthfeel. Smooth, easy sipping, satisfying taste, roasted chocolate mingled with coffee, a subtle berry fruitiness, a little vanilla and molasses, a citric hop bite towards the end, the alcohol is in the background and warming in the palate, and a dry roasted malty, fruity finish. A really nice RIS from Great Divide, a pleasant drinkability, very nice on a cold, windy midwest evening.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Pours black and opaque - almost tar-like - with a light brown, dissipating head. Fat aroma of hard roasted malt. Extremely solid body with lots of sweetish, burned malt with a very distinct bitterness. A tough beer to drink and digest. 171106

Zimmo (57) - Siloam Springs, Arkansas, USA - NOV 20, 2006
22 oz bottle. Dark black with dark brown head. Lacing and inch or two tall. Toasted malt aroma and taste. Oak aged Yeti is a step above, but this is still darn good.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - NOV 19, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2006 Poured a dark black color with rich, thick, dark brown head. Aroma was a magnificent carmel-toffee, with hints of chocolate. The flavor was a continuation of this toffee-caramel-chocolate, and the alcohol crept in as the beer warmed to be a perfect complement to the malty-sweet-candy shop flavors. Left an excellent sweet-dry palate. This is the best Impy Stout I’ve ever had.

TerryR (390) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Deep black with a large tan head that slowly settles to a thin covering. Roasted malt, chocolate and piney hops in the aroma. Malt driven flavor, lots of chocolate. Nice bitter finish provides some balance. Alcohol noticeable but not overly so. Wonderful.

RobertGBG (109) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2006
Strong alcoholic taste, no special smell, coffee and chocolate, good bitterness, not that extreme as it’s aged sibling

JohnnyJ (5330) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Pours a pitch black with thick tall head, and good lacing. Smoke, chocolate, coffee, sweetness, and some hops in the aroma. Good roasted flavor of chocolate, coffee, bittersweetness, some caramel and toffee notes. Excellent brew.

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2006
Bottled. Black color with small tan head. Sweet and roasted aroma with notes of coffee. Thick and sweet palate with vinous and deep roasted character. In the finish the sweetness changes gradually to strong coffee-charcoal roast. Very good and long finish.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 not the most pleasant stout, but what can you expect from 75 ibu (are you man enough?). The head disapears, flavor is comlex as well as the aroma. I enjoyed it with a brownie.
