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).

Dark coffee color with strong chocolate aroma. Some sweetness along with the roasty feel. Finishes with the right amount of alcohol and just enough bitterness. Nice Stout!

Wow. This is a truly awesome beer. After starting to wonder whether I actually like impys this brought me right back. Fantastic aroma of dark chocolate and roasted nuts laced with alcohol. Just lightly sweet, with a balanced resinousness giving a oily smooth silky mouthfeel. Rich dark chocolate going on. Finishes with just enough alcohol to raise the choco-malitness once more and finish with a silky bitterness. Just fantastic. Double bravo.

bottle from brickskeller. aroma: roast, some higher alcohols. flavor: starts hugely roasty, caramel, finishes pretty dry, with hops dominating a still noticable alcohol taste. not bad, but the booze isnít hidden well enough for my tastes.

Label looks old-school and understated. Very dark, rich, tasty brew. Roasted toffee flavor and a subtle sweetness balanced with a good alcohol presence. Overall, a delicious imperial stout. Thanks CaptainCougar!

I love this beer very much! Nice dark-opaque coffee color with a bit of a bitter-sweet. Loaded with hops and balanced well with a cherry-chocolate like flavor. Very nice!

tomciccateri (995) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAR 29, 2005
A great rendition, with the mellow roasted aroma and full mouthfeel concealing the big hop presence. A very rich but well-balanced flavor profile where you sense the alcohol long after the lasting chocolatty finish fades.

Poured into a snifter, large tark tan head, aroma of sweet chocolate and toffee. Taste of roasty malts, chocoalte and coffee, more hop bitterness than most imperials. Apart from the hop bitterness, this is not as intense of a brew as expected.

What a great IMPY this is. I canít say enough besides itís so well balanced that itís easy to knock off a few bombers and not really notice it until youíre on the floor. Kudoís to Great Divide for a great stout and great overall beer.

An interesting, smack you in the back of the head kind of stout. Tons of hops in an imperial stout. Totally a different animal for me. Like coffee and chocolate aftertones, but the majority is hops.

nice, thick black. Poured and smelled like a nice solid impy. However, had I not poured this myself I would sworn that this was the worlds darkest APA. The hop character was HUGE for a beer this dark. It completely blew away the roast and coffee flavors. Perfect stout for the hopheads, but i wasnít all that impressed
