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).

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.

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.

One of the most beautiful pours I’ve seen in a beer. Had that pefect thick, dark brown, tiny bubbled head. Beer is blacker than black. Smells of pure goodness, roasty chocolate and burnt coffee. So thick and rich. Nice sweet malt opening that progresses to a heavy chocolate and caramel and coffee presence. Some hops peek though next and then back to a sweet but not too sweet finish, with some raisins, molasses and licorice showing through as well. Yum yum, give me some. Very HEAVY beer but with a silky smooth mouthfeel, almost like whole milk. Perfect for any occassion, with or without food, but goes great with thai.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 Completely black body with a nice brown head. Smells of raisins, chocolate, and milk. Taste is huge. Hints of sweet coffee, maple syrup, and chocolate. Alcohol comes in and bites you on the finish, which is bitter and roasty and actually quite sweet. And its extremely smooth. Nice stout, I like it a lot.

A pitch black beer with a thick brown head, absolutely beautiful. Roast and chocolate dominated aroma with pleasant creamy notes. Sweet, full and extremely nice. Chocolate is dominating in the flavor as well with lots of roast and an excellent bitter end. Rather alcoholic, more evident than the oak aged version. Very good balanced and a nice soft mouthfell. This is a huge beer!!

650 ml bottle. Pitch black wiht a gorgeous thick dark brown head and very sticky lacing. Aroma is also rich and sweet, heavy malt, molasses, caramel, prune, vanilla, blackberry, underneath a massive bitter cocoa and intense roasty aroma. Flavour is of coffee, dark fruit, soy sauce and faint licorice. Massive roasty flavour with a big bitter finish. A bit bitter than I’d ordinarily like, but still very enjoyable.

Very heavy roasted nose, caramel, malts, some sweetness and alcohol can also be detected. Very thick and very dark brown to black body, with a wonderful ruby tint, big fluffy brown head. Lots of roasted malts in the flavor, coffee, chocolate, ends on a bitter roasty note. Very creamy and balanced.

Bottle, bomber: Wanted to try this first before the Oak Aged. Pours a thickish nearly opaque brown/black with a big sustaining brown head. Aromas were big, roasted malts (coffee, toast), chocolate, toffee for a little bit of sweetness through the roastiness. Flavor was similar with a roasted malts coating the mouth, chocolate and toffee are still there, with an unexpected soy sauce appearance. Velvety mouthfeel and a lasting roast aftertaste.

22oz. bomber thanks to Goldtwins. Black with a medium sized brown head that doesn’t go away. Awesome aroma of dark roasted malts, chocolate, and some soy. Flavor was pretty much the same as the aroma which in this case is a very good thing. A wee bit thinner than expected, but by no means thin and watery. Delicious. I liked this much better than the Oaked version.
