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).

This is everything Iíd expect from an Imperial stout and more. Very very smooth beer can brighten a cold winter evening. Iíd given it a 20, but Iím reserving that score until I try a bottle of the oak aged Iíve been saving.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2005
A damn solid Imperial Stout. Pours black as oil with a thin tan head that leaves a very nice lace down the glass. Aroma is mostly of chocolate and a bit of toffee/caramel. Flavor is nice and balanced; chocolate, coffee... sweetness with the perfect bitterness. I wish my cold was completely gone so I could detect more as this is complex. Palate is smooth yet crisp without biting, and very thick. Overall, this is a great beer and one I think youíll be hearing more of soon. Definitely worth seeking out.

desurfer (1219) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2005
Body is an oily black with dark, chocolatey brown head about an inch tall. Aroma is very roasty and alcoholic, hints of coffee and bitter chocolate. Superbly balanced flavor; burnt, roasty, chocolatey malts and plenty of hop bitterness. Just a tinge of alcohol presence. Full, creamy palate. Very good!

deep dark brown with minimal brown head. Nice roasted malt aroma with hints of chocolate. Nice full mouthfeel with a nice roasty malt taste, chocolate and caramel malts are present, with a nice mild alcohol warming midway leading to nice bitter finish. well done

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 9, 2005
Thick dark poor with a very nice chocolaty head. Aroma is big with a lots of malt, and strong tones for carmel, hops and alcohol. The flavor is richly malty with a big hop presence. Roasted carmel and chocolate tones are a little too hidden by the hoppieness. There are hints of dark fruit that could be a little more pronounced. Nice rich finish and a warming alcohol presence.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2005
Dark coffee color with strong chocolate aroma. Some sweetness along with the roasty feel. Finishes with the right amount of alcohol and just enough bitterness. Nice Stout!

Wow. This is a truly awesome beer. After starting to wonder whether I actually like impys this brought me right back. Fantastic aroma of dark chocolate and roasted nuts laced with alcohol. Just lightly sweet, with a balanced resinousness giving a oily smooth silky mouthfeel. Rich dark chocolate going on. Finishes with just enough alcohol to raise the choco-malitness once more and finish with a silky bitterness. Just fantastic. Double bravo.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 4, 2005
bottle from brickskeller. aroma: roast, some higher alcohols. flavor: starts hugely roasty, caramel, finishes pretty dry, with hops dominating a still noticable alcohol taste. not bad, but the booze isnít hidden well enough for my tastes.

Label looks old-school and understated. Very dark, rich, tasty brew. Roasted toffee flavor and a subtle sweetness balanced with a good alcohol presence. Overall, a delicious imperial stout. Thanks CaptainCougar!

I love this beer very much! Nice dark-opaque coffee color with a bit of a bitter-sweet. Loaded with hops and balanced well with a cherry-chocolate like flavor. Very nice!
