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).

A very nice imperial stout. Pours an opaque black with a dark head. Flavor is dominated by chocolate malt up front with a warming coffeeish finish. A great beer for a cold autumn night.

Nice label. Pour was thick and inky, with dark dark brown head. Mmmm. Huge malt aroma, with a tang of alcohol on the nose. Hops? Probably, but I was revelling in the malt smell! Thick malty yummy taste! Stout as it oughtta be. Quite bitter with the hops, with a strong resin flavour. Fantastic, complements the huge malt flavour and knocks back the alcohol taste. Mouthfeel a bit grainy, thick, rolls around your mouth. Astringent finish refreshes your mouth and makes you crave another go! This is close to my ideal stout....

22 oz bottle. Pours an opaque motor oil black. It has a good sized creamy head that is very dark brown. The head quickly goes to a bubbly film and collar that laces the glass.

The aroma is lactose, chocolate, some bitter hops, wood, and anise. Thereís also some dark fruits and alcohol.

The flavor is anise, lactic cream, coffee, chocolate and some fruitiness. It has a pretty sharp burnt bitter finish that leaves a slight sticky aftertaste. Itís well balanced between the sweet and the bitter (tending a little more towards bitter), and the alcohol is well hidden (yet belly warming). The mouthfeel is full and creamy.

Overall, similar to the oak aged version, but I liked this much better. It was a little more tamed in terms of alcohol and bitterness. One of the best imperials Iíve had to date. Itís still a tad rough around the edges...I bet this would age nicely.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2008 smellls of sweet roasted malts, carmel, and a hint of citrusy hops. syrupy texture and black in color with a dark brown orange head. oily palate. i definitly notice the hops underneath the roasted chocolate malts. tastes of chocolate covered oranges. similar to a rogue stout with the hop content. unique and enjoyable. great find.--11/2/05-- re-rate- well, itís been a long time since iíve had this one, so i decided to re-rate. pours completely black with a large creamy whipped dark brown head. aroma of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, sugared coffee, espresso, mocha. full bodied and creamy. flavors like the aroma with notes of orange and pine. this still rocks just as hard.

Pours black as night with a thick tan head. Coats the glass nicely. Taste has a heavy helping of roasted malts and coffee. Coats the tongue pretty well. This is one of the better impies Iíve tasted.

I knew i would find a beer that i hadnt rated yet, but i didnt think it would be this one since pauline is always going on about it. I opened his and poured one of the best pours iv ever done, jet balck with dark coffee brown head. Aroma is coffee and molasses with a dryness in there also. Taste is similar with maybe some fruits kicking about and another dry finish.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2005
Black beer with a brown head. Fruits and coffee-aroma, the better kind. Sweet taste, but overpowered by roasted bitterness. Very thick, chewy mouthfeel, alcoholic finish.

Pours deep black with a foamy, but fully receding mocha brown head. Nice aroma of coffee, chocolate, with a vinous character. Taste has a perfect bitter/sweet balance. Dark chocolate, mild roast, dark breads. Quite delicious.

Tasting 10/22, picked up the bottle in Colorado in late March. Itís spent some time in the cellar. 22oz bottle. Served at 58į in my NB worthy glass. First cold spell of the fall is happening outside, we have misty rain and the temps will be nearfreezing. The beer pours completely black, perhaps a sliver of maroon at the top that is topped by a small mocha colored head that dies away to a ring of bubbles and a few fractals in the middle. The smell is roasty and hoppy. The malt seems to have the upper hand on the malt, at least so far. Both are huge. There is a huge mouthfeel. The taste is milk chocolate at first with a dash of espresso. The finish is pure, oily hops finally overcoming the malt onslaught. The hops are piney, maybe a little earthy. The creamy mouthfeel lasts until the end when the warming alcohol and hops leave it somewhat astringent. The aftertaste is roasty and piney. I can see where this beer has the sheer "bigness" to survive a stint in the barrel. Tasty.
