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).

Do you want an excellent imperial stout? This is it. Cradled in a one pint, 6 oz (650 ML) brown bottle purchased from Armanettiís, Mundelein, IL, this black hued stout sports a long lasting large creamy head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Intoxicating complex aroma of chocolate, expresso, and dried fruit. Medium bodied with creamy smooth texture that starts with chocolate, expresso, prune flavors. Finishes dry with light bitterness. A rich, creamy complex stout that is best savored alone after a meal. A giant imperial stout, one of the best that Iíve tried thus far.

Pours black with a thick, foamy brown head. Heavy chcolate aroma (smells so much like chcolate milk) along with toffee, caramel, coffee, hazelnut, and even floral and citrusy hops. Extremely thick and complex taste with lots of chocolate and espresso. Excellent balance between sweetness and bitterness. There is also a huge hops taste that leaves citrus and pine flavors on the palate. This is very creamy for a stout and it goes down ultra smooth with a dry hoppy bitter finish. Overall this is an incredible stout, one of my favorites - canít wait to try the oak-aged version.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2005
A dark, black appearance with a large brown head. Taste is of deep, dark chocolate with alcohol and hops. A very strong and bold beer, almost overpowering, not as smooth or complex as its cousin the Oak Aged Yeti, but still a very good beer.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Dark nearly black color tinted red ever so slightly, a milk chocolate colored head floats atop. Tastes like it has some coffee/chocolate hints with a little bit of a roasted flavor.

awebster (165) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Thick and black. As full-bodied a beer as Iíve come across. A very hoppy stout, itís almost an IPA. Good and strong. Dry burnt finish.

Bottle: This is great. Beautiful dark color with a light brown head. It is bursting forth witrh a complexity of roasted flavors including chocolate, coffee, charcoal, and burnt grains. It has a great feel and is a pleasant drink.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2005
This is the darkest beer that I have tried without a doubt, itís like a black hole; my lights are going dim. The nose is very expressive with plentiful aromas of caramel, chocolate, coffee, hops, malt, and hazelnuts. One would assume that the beer is going to be full-bodied and it is, but itís not too sweet. The palate dries out nicely. On the palate the most dominate flavor is dark bitter chocolate followed by fresh brewed coffee. The hops seem to be appropriately balanced in accordance with the beers gravity. I expected more from the finish, itís by no means short, but I thought that I was going to be bowled over with a long complex finish. A grand Imperial Stout has been crafted by Great Divide that covers all the style bases.
