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).

much thanks to brock_landers for sending me this impy stout.i poured a bit into my snifter glass and was greeted with a super black body and nice looking fudge colored head.the aroma was a mixture of brownies,roasted malts,sugar,and fudge.the first sip lit me eyes up with delight.the palate was very complex and changed even after sending the brew down my throat.the flavors were:chocolate,coffee,fudge,smoke,brownies,a tiny bit of beef jerkey,some hops,damn,its like the energizer bunny.it keeps going,and going,and going.....the mouthfeel was nice and thick and the alcohol was well masked.this is nothing short of exceptional.

Had this before and loved it, but wanted to do a vertical with an Oak aged. Still phenomenal, with a great malt backbone and tons of hops. Lots of coffee, and while not as rounded as the Oak Aged, still world class.

Came in a brown 22 oz. bomber, and looked dark brown/black with a creamy brown head when it graced the tulip. Aromatically, a very chocolaty brew, with some prunes and piney hops thrown in. Taste was drier than the aroma suggested. Peppery, roasty, nutty mid palate, slightly hot alcoholic finish, and a lingering vinous bitter aftertaste. The citric hops were more evident than typical for the style. Body was chewy and stiff, and the myriad of flavors felt a bit disjointed. This is pretty good now, but likely will become most exceptional after some additional aging in my opinion. Will have to stop by the store again soon to pick up some for the cellar.

Yum. Pours very dark and thick with dark brown head. Smells of roasted malts. Flavor is roasty, malty, bit of coffee and chocolate. Thick. Flavor stays in your mouth long after each sip. great brew.

Dark color; thick foam. Supreme malt aroma; a lot of roasted malt; light caramel. Well balanced (malt and hop; setness and bitterness), round, solid.

I sampled the Great Divide Yeti before noon and after finishing a chicory coffee. The coffee and Yeti complimented each other. Impressive look to this imperial stout. Gingerbread colored head and a dark brown sugar color to the body. Further greeted by a roasted aroma. This is one complex imperial stout. Piney green hops blended with caramel, toffee, and malt. Superior beer.

Black color; the head reduces quickly, but leaving a nice lace. The aroma is a wonderful mix of hops and roasted malt, dark chocolate. Dense flavor, fat roasted malt (and caramel, malt) flavor, some cardboard, maybe glue, alcohol feeling; in the end offering notes of cookies, coffee, strong liquorice; powerful body. Prepotent bitterness, in a long final, with a lot of roasted malt. Huge.

Blackest color; dark brown thick head. Strong aroma: malt, roasted malt, light liquorice. Good structure, not too thick, not too oily; extreme roasted malt character, with coffee, liquorice; very strong hopping with hidden aromas.
Chewy coffee; extremely balanced. Give me more!

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 This stout did not fail to impress. Poured black as your momma and gave better head. Toffee flavor and loads of quality hops were a nice addition, would have liked more of an alcohol warming. More to add: I had another bomber last night this time it was a batch from 2003 and I’ve got to say this stuff ages extremely well. A complexity of flavors coming out of nowhere and the alcohol warming was definitely present after sitting a while. Booyahkasha!

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2005 Pours black with a tall brown head that lasts and leaves medium lacing behind. Rich roasts in the aroma, hints of chocolate and coffee. This stout had a bit more carbonation than I was expecting, it thinned out the heaviness of the brew a bit but still had a good thickness to it. Very balanced taste with rich caramel taste mixed in with the chocolate and a hint of plum fruitiness, finishing with bitterness to balance.
