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).

Black body, small but creamy chocolate coloured head. (3+) Oily palate coats the glass. Lacklustre sweet malt in the aroma does little to support the dominant mild roast. Flavour is surprisingly bitter and hoppy. Malt and chocolate notes seem quite subdued compared the bitterness of the roast and hoppy bite. I am not appreciating the hop presence in the same way as in say Alpha Klaus or Bear Repulic’s stout, and I am not sure why. Medium palate. Much less rounded than the Oak Aged version.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2005
Bottled. Sampled at plan b during the RBESG pub crawl. Black, with a tint of red. Roasty nose, with notes of coffee, chocolate and a wonderful accompanying hop tone. Body is extremely rounded. Coffee and dark chocolate notes. Amazingly yummy.

DanielBrown (3777) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle at Plan B during RBESG 05 pub crawl. Great smell: coffee cream and searing hops. Oily black, with a brown fuzz head. Wonderful strong flavour: deep roast on a crispy hop background. Excellent combination of well sourced flavours, which works brilliantly. Awesome. (Big thanks to Rick Gordon and Hammenlind for seeking me out because they knew I would love this!)

Very thick black color, lots of smoke in the aroma and lots of chocolate. The body holds up well, the chocolate is real, not plastic and the coffee is huge, i love this one copared to its oaked counterpart/.

22oz bomber all to myself.. Pours black and thick like liquid tar with a small dark tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate and hops. Flavor is rich, thick, and heavy with burnt malt, espresso coffee, molasses, and dark chocolate. Almost too much at once, this beers sips slow. Long roasty bitter hop finish. The flavors are so intense it’s a while before you even think about alcohol being present, and it packs a good kick at 9.5% Amazing that so much can be packed into a beer. Everything about it is massive. A bomber is almost too much for one person. Not something you will want to drink every day, but awesome.

zach8270 (3431) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 [bottle - 22 oz] Dark black pour with a long and lasting tan head. Very thick and rich aroma of roasted malts, alcohol and sweet malts and molasses. The taste is very sweet at the beginning, lots of roasted and toasted malts and chocolate. The middle has more of a hoppy bite with some possible toffee taste mixed in. The finish is very rich and sweet with lots of alcohol and surprisingly not much aftertaste.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2005
Pours redish black with a thin beige/yellow head with some lacing. Roasted, acidic nose with small hints of orange. Burnt flavour, with some notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Rounded taste. A very pleasant imperial stout-ish acidicness in finish.

unibaren (154) - 8000 Ĺrhus C, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005
Roasted coffee, licourice, dark chocolate and caramel is clearly detectable in the powerfull yet plesant aroma. Pitch black, creamy with a nice brown head that (like in all Great Divide beers) clings to he inside of the glass. The flavour is much like any strong stout but the amount of hops is much greater then I am used to in a stout - and maybe a little to much for me. The 9,5% alcohol is totally hidden by all the other flavours

Bottled
Opaque black, creamy small expresso head. Flowery hops in the nose. Lots of licorice and hops. Long roasted licorice flavor in the aftertaste.
