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).

A good imperial stout, but not my personal favorite. Dark, black body with a thick brown head. Aroma is rich, chocolatey, malty, sweet, with a bit of alcohol. Tastes much the same - big malt flavor,including semi sweet chocolate, with a mild bite and a dry roasted malt aftertaste. Full creamy palate..

Tasty and very enjoyable very hoppy for a stout, but I didnít mind. Coffee, chocolate and hops, what more could a guy want. Nice thick tan head that stayed until about halfway through. A great treat.

mmm mmm coffee and alcohol in the nose. Pours out a nice dark black. The head is a delightful dark brown. Taste of coffee and chocolate. It has a fairly high alcohol percent, but it covers it up very well. I like this stout a great deal.

Gentle hiss as the cap comes off, followed by a thick black pour. Head varies from time to time, but itís always dark tan in color. Vibrant caramel, black currant, burnt rubber, smoke, roasty double espresso, dark unsweetened chocolate and cola comprise the aroma. Flavor begins with a heavy heap of French roasted coffee. Dark chocolate - abandoned by sugar - helps to compliment the expressive IBUs, giving a smooth yet abrasive dosage with each sip. The word "epitome" comes to mind for those imperials aiming to have a high IBU stat and embody coffee qualities. That being said, Iíd like a touch more malt sweetness, but Iím not complaining. IBUs fill in the roll vacated by carbonation. Heavy, residual coffee blackening on the palate with an amped-up balance quotient. Finishes like a handful of coffee grinds. Damn enjoyable.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, jerc & tupalev - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Jet black body with a dark brown head. Amazing aroma of rasted malt & nuts, caramel, coffee and hops. Mouthfeel is soft and creamy. Up until this point, itís the equal of the oak aged version, but it falls behind in the flavour department - it starts really nicely, but the alcohol and hops get quite agressive in the finish. Still a pretty fantastic beer, but the oak aging really rounds out the rough edges, making it exceptional.

Unbelievably good, if you like things on the extreme end of richness. The thick, very sweet, syrupy body pushes it to the top of the pack of those beers Iíve tried in this style. (Iím waiting for Paul to share my bottle of World Wide Stout, so weíll see if my last comment holds up.) OK...pours almost lumpy, with a huge head in my wide-mouth glass. Smells like a barleywine, all fruit, alcohol, tart hops and spice, but with burnt/toasted aroma -- which makes sense, because the beer is pitch black. A burst of carbonation when you sip it (please SIP it, or pay), then a wave of sweetness, coffee, malt. This is 75 IBU? Then it must have 300 GSU (Gregís Sweetness Units), becauseto me the finish was happily, but not very, bitter, the hops just saying hello after all the malty, caramely goodness. Iím left with the sweet, roasty flavor in my mouth for many minutes after Iíve had a sip. Got it for just over $6 at the "discount" liquor store on Foster and Clark. Drank the whole 1 pint 6 oz bottle in about 30 min. Now, time for a nap.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 Guiness on steriods. Dark. Rich. Strong charred flavor. Complex flavor. A bit much for regular drinking, but I nice treat every now and again.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2005
A big dark brown head over a black opaque brew.Heavy roasted malt flavor. Big mouth feel, viscous, it coated the mouth. The hops are needed for balance but the 75 IBUíS are a bit too much for my liking. It left a nice lace pattern in the glass. Canít help but compare it with the Oak Aged version. This one is not as smooth, not as mellow, a tad harsh.

ABUSEDGOAT (2387) - California, USA - AUG 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 Black pour, big head. Aroma is the usual dark malts with roast, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Also a huge hop presence is here. A straightforward and good example of a hopped up Imperial Stout. Bells still has the far superior one though..
