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).

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

Beer was black in color with a good chocolate head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma that stood out was of the roasted malts in this beer. Alcohol presence seamed to be the flavor but near the end of beer got a taste of a sweet caramel flavor. Easy on the palate, a good beer.

Poured black with a awesome chocolate head and lacing. Aroma is heavy with roasty malt, chocolate and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is roast, smoke,sweet malt with a slight alcohol finish.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Heavy, lingering aroma with notes of dark chocolate, roasted beans and dark cherries. Thick mouthfeel, with a deep complexity. Melting flavors of sugary sweet caramels and semi-sweet chocolates churn into a deep, burnt roastiness with a very pleasant and clean finish.

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.
