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).

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2005 Rather dark! Even as it pours, it seems opaque, but I can see the brownish color. Quite dark tan head as well, firm and creamy. Aroma of caramel and molasses, mild roast and maybe a touch of coffee, a sprinkle of something piney. Full, rich and rounded. On the whole sweet, but its more than that. The sweetness blends right into a strongly hoppy finish. Hop flavorings seem difficult to identify mixed with such strong roasted chocolate malts, but are otherwise clearly apparent. Perhaps the hoppiest imperial stout Iíve had. Full bodied, but not too heavy - instead dangerously drinkable...I had to intentionally slow down on this one! Alcohol in the finish, warming in the chest, heady.

Bottle. Found this beauty of a beer in Philly. Pours black as tar with a thick brown head. Great head retention for an Imperial Stout. Smell has burnt chocolate, coffee, caramel and courant. There is a bit of citrus and graitfruit mixed into the taste. IPA characteristics are present in this beer. Palate is very pleasing. I was expecting this to be overly bitter. All I can say is it is excellent.

Pours like a black coffee and creates a thin burnt sienna colored head and makes a nice spattering of lace on the walls of my goblet. Smell is of deep roasted malts and chocolate. Bittersweet dark chocolate and roasted malts, coffee flavors fill the mouth, strong alcohol and a rather bitter finish. Mouthfeel is exceptional, very smooth and soft carbonation and is not cloying or sticky on the palate, has a relatively dry finish. Yeti is welcome for dinner any time, it stacks up well to the other players in this field of massive American stouts.

On tap at BJís, Pearl Street, Boulder. Absolutely delicious and incredible. One of the best in my book, really. Intense, right off the bat it says how good it is to your tounge. Quality. Deepness, "drinkability", and ability to stay on the bar and be quality quaff without you wanting to rush it. Excellently done.

A good imperial stout, but not my personal favorite. Dark, black body with a thick brown head. Aroma is rich, chocolatey, malty, sweet, with a bit of alcohol. Tastes much the same - big malt flavor,including semi sweet chocolate, with a mild bite and a dry roasted malt aftertaste. Full creamy palate..

Tasty and very enjoyable very hoppy for a stout, but I didnít mind. Coffee, chocolate and hops, what more could a guy want. Nice thick tan head that stayed until about halfway through. A great treat.

mmm mmm coffee and alcohol in the nose. Pours out a nice dark black. The head is a delightful dark brown. Taste of coffee and chocolate. It has a fairly high alcohol percent, but it covers it up very well. I like this stout a great deal.

Gentle hiss as the cap comes off, followed by a thick black pour. Head varies from time to time, but itís always dark tan in color. Vibrant caramel, black currant, burnt rubber, smoke, roasty double espresso, dark unsweetened chocolate and cola comprise the aroma. Flavor begins with a heavy heap of French roasted coffee. Dark chocolate - abandoned by sugar - helps to compliment the expressive IBUs, giving a smooth yet abrasive dosage with each sip. The word "epitome" comes to mind for those imperials aiming to have a high IBU stat and embody coffee qualities. That being said, Iíd like a touch more malt sweetness, but Iím not complaining. IBUs fill in the roll vacated by carbonation. Heavy, residual coffee blackening on the palate with an amped-up balance quotient. Finishes like a handful of coffee grinds. Damn enjoyable.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, jerc & tupalev - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Jet black body with a dark brown head. Amazing aroma of rasted malt & nuts, caramel, coffee and hops. Mouthfeel is soft and creamy. Up until this point, itís the equal of the oak aged version, but it falls behind in the flavour department - it starts really nicely, but the alcohol and hops get quite agressive in the finish. Still a pretty fantastic beer, but the oak aging really rounds out the rough edges, making it exceptional.
