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).

Very dark color, like black! I really like this.. right when it hits my mouth it tastes bitter followed by sweet flower taste and then finishes bitter again. It has a real burt taste. I donít usually drink stouts on a regular basis, but i do know that this one was better. It didnít seem to fill me up as much as the others, these kinda of beers are usually like a meal and although this was like a meal.. it wasnít as bad.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 26, 2006
22 oz bottle. Poured thick and black with a brown head that laced the glass. Big malt nose with molasses, caramel, and chocolate notes. Flowery hops round out the aroma. Slick and oily with lots of alcohol flavor and a burnt roastiness (almost tarry) that lingers along with the alcohol and some hop bitterness. Strong molasses. Very bold. Successively sweet and then acidic.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
"Maverick" 2003 edition. Beer pours a nearly opaque black-brown color with a small, light brown, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma is thick and huge! Malty with sweet heavy notes of burned caramel, roasted grain and molasses and moderate notes of black coffee; Hoppy with heavy notes of resin/pine and herbs; Strong miscellaneous notes of sherry/cognac, resin/pine and smoke. The flavor is heavily bitter, lightly sweet and lightly acidic with a long, warm, heavily bitter, lightly sweet finish. The body is full, the texture is syrupy and the carbonation is soft.

A little lighter in color than most imperial stouts. Pretty roasty in flavor. Good beer, but ive had better imperial stouts.

From the bottle this beer pours thick black with a small creamy brown head. Nice smokey malt aroma with waves of chocolate. Plenty of roasted malt, caramel, a burned wood character and a potent bitter hop finish with notes of juniper berry. Fairly full swallow with a tinge of alcohol tickling the throat. This brew lives up to its reputation and I am glad that it is finally available in Georgia. I am also quite happy I have another bottle in the chill.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - APR 19, 2006
Impenetrable dark brown with a large head. Nice aromas of roasted malt, caramel and chocolate. Smooth roasted coffee flavor. Alcohol takes on a woody, roasted character as it warms. Good balance of intense hops and malt sweetness. Finishes with a malty expresso flavor. Powerful and good.

I havenít had but one or two imperial stouts, so I donít have much to compare this to, but itís pretty good. It pours an extremely dark tar-like color with a very thin brownish-orange head. While the head is not tall, it does leave a thorough and uniform lacing in the glass. The aroma is a little hard to pin down in one sentence. Thereís a very roasty malt smell, a sharp vein of hops, and a bit of dark fruitiness in the background. The beer has a bitter character, but is well balanced with a rich, nutty maltiness. It feels very rich in the mouth -- not quite silky, but very thick. The beer finishes dry and leaves a nice, bitter aftertaste that lingers. Thereís also a slight stickiness left behind, but with a beer this rich, thatís expected, and I accept that. Overall, I like this beer. Itís a bit too powerful for my taste, but it IS an imperial stout, after all.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - APR 5, 2006
Opaque black pour with a significant brown head for an imperial. Nose is mostly roast and oats. Palate is very heavy and sticky dense. Flavor is fairly typical for an imperial that starts out roast, has nice toffee and oak middleground, and finishes with tar and dryness. Not quite as bitter as expected. I had a freshly brewed bottle and it was good, but it was also clear that it was rough around the edges. Alcohol presence prevents the fruition of many of the latent flavors. Worth cellaring and another look.
