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).

(Bottle 6 fl.oz.) One of the greatest stouts Iíve ever tasted. Powerfull bitter notes from the hops, and sweet delecious notes of chocolate and caramel/coffee. Pours completely black, with a nice lasting off-white head. Itís definately not the last time Iíve tasted this great beer!

Pours as black as the night itself..Big Brown head, Great lacing!!! Big cocoa smell at first... not 2 sweet..not 2 bitter, goood! has a sweet roastiness to it that leaves good bitters behind in the yap.coffee+ bitter cooking choc flavours:::Has some heat in the back of the throat, probably due to the high abv, but not noticable in the taste, masked well, but a delicous brew with a black roasted kick! .........where is this "yeti?"

Bottle at RBG Low Countries 2005 Tasting Session
Brown head, excellent lace. Black body. Great nose of malts: nuts, chocolate, coffee, ... Lightly sweet, moderately bitter initial flavour. Somewhat acetic. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish. Medium bodied. Nice Stout. Not overwhelming, but good by itís simplicity.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 Bottle@Home, Feb 09, 3.8: Had this so many times by now and itís still great. But I also had so many other Imps now that I start to recognize the great from the god-like ones. And this isnít god-like, just great. Too one dimensional in the flavor. Bottle@LCRBM, Oct 05, 4.1: Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and blackcurrant. Black color, firm brown head, good lace, pours very thick. Strong flavors, sweet, strong roasted coffee, very bitter, very full and thick. Great example of the style.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - OCT 12, 2005
On tap.
Rich aroma of roasted barley, molassas, chocolate and coffee. Bitter roasted flavor is tempered by a dose of sweetness like molassas and brown sugar. Notable cascade hop presence as well (piney, spicy, floral) but not overdone. Very creamy palate. A pleasant surprise to find this on tap in central Illinois.

antzman (315) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2005
22 oz bomber. This poured a dark mahogony with a thin brown head. Simply beautiful. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. The taste is initially malty but then more hops then I have tasted in a Imp. Stout come through to give a bitter finish. An excellent stout

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2005
This beer is a beast compared to itís oak aged counterpart. Pours just as syrupy black, with a nice reddish head that lasts the entire glass. Nose is a little alcoholic and chocolatey. Palate is sweet roasted barley chased by a vicious bitterness. I honestly would be hard pressed to choose between the two.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Amazinlgy dark with a tight mahoganey head. A general assault of classic Imp. Stout, chocolate, coffee bean , roasted barely and a slightly winey 9.5%

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Pours opaque black with a thick, dark tan head and nice lacing. The appearance is very inviting. Aroma is well-balanced between roasted malts and spicy/piney hops with ripe fruits up front. The flavor of this Imperial Stout is wonderfully bitter with an incredibly complex medley of caramel, chocolate and coffee (roasted) malts and American hops. Full-bodied and well-carbonated (which makes this monster dangerously easy to drink). Alcohol is present, but not overpowering. Very well-made!

oh6gdx (20883) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled. Pitch black, huge brown longlasting bubbly/creamy head. Roasted malt and cream & caramel in aroma. Strong roasted malt, coffee, caramel, toffee and colacandy in flavour. Very complex, and nice. Kickass!
