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).

mjg74 (2854) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Bomber. Pours black in color. Small bit of head. Sweet, milky, chocolate aroma. Coffee with sugar. Quite a bit of hoppy bitterness right up front. Some roasted coffee flavors. Followed by a hint of sweetness. Bitter finish like burnt coffee beans. Some alcohol is present in the finish. Full flavored impy. Nice winter warmer.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 12, 2006
Pours a extremely dark brown, almost no carbonation. Aroma is of alcohol and coffee. Tastes of coffee and alcohol with an EXTREMELY bitter finish. This beer was just too bitter for me, maybe Imperial Stouts are just not for me. This beer just did not live up to the hype.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Bottle. Pours black with solid tan head. The aroma is rich and roasty with a healthy dose of bitter earthy hops and some chocolate. The flavor is dominantly chocolate malt and creamy espresso. Some toffee, toast, and plum are in there, too. Toward the finish, the hops come out. Lots and lots of dry, earthy hops. Very tasty.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Beautifully dark, great head, roasty chocolate and coffee aroma. Chocolatey, and hop flavours. The hops are far more pronounced here when compared to the oaked.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - JAN 7, 2006
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is hoppy, chocolate malt. Taste is very hoppy, chocolate, coffee. Not as smooth at the oak aged, but still top notch.

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Heavy vapors of alcohol, chocolate-coffee liqueur. Roasted black malts, molasses, licorice and smoke. Light hops aroma, overpowered by the malts. Inky black liquid with chocolate brown creamy lacing head. Heavy body, almost oily, with medium carbonation. Alcohol warming. Starts heavy and sweet, with big roasted malt, chocolate coffee notes, bitter and alkaline. Big hops finish to mellow out the sweetness. Big on taste throughout, starts sweet and ends on dry nutty bitterness. Good warming, too.

Sofajoern (146) - DENMARK - DEC 30, 2005
Truly dark colour with a very, very good looking beige almost brown head, that lasted very well. Looked spectacular in my regular tasting glass (bowl type glass). Aroma with notes of coffee, licorice, and something I canít quite place but think is coriander. Very full, dark flavour with everything from the aroma in rich amounts as well as an interesting complexity of other flavours (I suspect itís one of those beers in wich everybodycan find different flavours). Lasting bitter, hoppy aftertaste, that I liked, but realise might scare some people off (itís rather agressive after all). One of the best stouts Iíve had.

ebarnes (260) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2005
650 ml bottle. Pours black as night with a thick, creamy head that lasts forever. Lots of coffee and chocolate flavor. Finishes a little bitter. Not nearly as smooth as Bellís Expedition.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2005
This is not nearly as smooth as itís Oak Aged cousin, and I found it to be extremely complex and strong. Very dark brown/black with a brown head. Very hoppy and filling with roasted malt flavor everpresent. Give it a try.

Bottle. First off let me say state this: this is one of the most beautiful beers Iíve ever seen. It pours a completely opaque black. I held this right up to a lamp and wasnít able to get any light through it. The head is very big but not Duvel big, super thick and creamy (think latteí), and milk chocolate brown. And it hangs around basically forever. Like 3 years or something. Aroma starts to give hists of this oneís odd nature: cream, lots of brown sugar, and...hoppy citrus? Yup. So...the flavor. Well, right off the bat it sorta punches you in the face with roasted coffee malts and bitter dark chocolate, piles of brown sugar. Then, well, you have the hops and frankly, this is where the beer lost me. The distinctly non floral bitterness that felt like some one had dumped some of their IPA in my stout. And alcohol. This beer does a poor job hiding its high gravity, which of course adds to the harshness. Personally, I did not find this anywhere near as well balanced as other premium imperials (namely Storm King, Rasputin). Finishes with alcohol, coffee, and and a weird sweet bitterness. By far the worst thing about this beer is the feel. At first it is ok, thick like a stout should be. But then, well, it has this horrible bottom-of-the-coffee pot chalkiness that made me cringe. Its like I chewed some Tums and washed it down with a swig of reheated day old coffee. Blarg. So the moral of the story is that this beer gave me a great first impression, and then consistently let me down there afterward. I had problems even finishing it. I can see why some like it, as American beer makers and drinkers seem to be obsessed with hops and the number of IBUs. Anywho, this one was frankly not for me.
