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).

This beer has the color of the blackest coffee you can imagin. The froth is creamy and intens warm brown. It has the aroma of freshly burned coffee-beans, caramelized sweet apples, the grill of a uzed BBQ, aroma’s of the best bitter black chocolate and caramelized Belgian andives. The taste is soft and smooth. Very much dominated by burned touches of expresso coffee, the blackend edges of an apple-pie, some dark sugar sirup, black tea, real vanilla-stick, again caramelized apple and Belgian andives. The alcohol is well integrated and gives you a slight warm feeling. A very well balanced Imperial Stout.

This is a like a Stout on Steroids in some respect. More alcohol, more bitter but just enough, so it’s balanced well and strong. Black color and malted black coffee taste.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2005
Black like a coalmine with a big, dense brown head. Wonderful aroma of black coffee, luxury chocolate, pepper and hops with touches of citric fruit. Big chocolately flavour with notes of espresso, roasted malts, toffee, tar and citric hops. Long bitter aftertaste of cocoa, dark chocolate, pepper and hops. A graet beer.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Bottled. Pours a still black with a bit of a tan head. Hoppy aroma. Tons of chocolate with notes of coffee. Dry, bitter hop finish. Also taste a smokey flavor in there as well. A bit bubbly , but it warms very well. Well done, I look foward to opening the Oak Aged next!

Black pour with a cascading waterfall....taste was harsh at first, but warmed up to a well mounted blend of chocolate, roasted malts, fueled by some serious hops.

Hangover (1056) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Pours black as night with one of the most spendid heads I have personally seen a beer... almost a shame to drink it. Roasted malts, some chocolate and coffee. Complex taste with a little bit of everything, and quite a lot of hops. Not too sweet, very pleasant mouthfeel and, what i think is a fantastic bitter finish. I love hoppy beers and I think this is a great take on an imperial stout.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2005
Bottle. Aromas of blackness; coffee, tar, chocolate. Citrus elements from American hops also. Flavour is very chocolatey and well-roasted coffee-like. On the palate this beer is massive and thick. Great beer, but the large bottle size is actually a bit too much if you’re not sharing.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2005
As adequately documented below, this was a lovely pour. Rolled out of the bottle like warm black ink, and topped with a nice caramel crown of head. Aroma is heavy on the roasted malts, with undertones of coffee, toffee, chocolate, caramel, and some hops that add a nice twist to the style. The hops are also prominently featured in the quite complex flavor profile. Chocolate and coffee malts hit the palate first, with toffee and some citrusy hops toward the back. Long roasty finish with a nice hop twist. Heavily-bodied, but very smooth mouthfeel. The Yeti rocks! I like his style.
