COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Divide’s 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, Yeti’s hop profile reveals a slightly citrusy, piney, and wonderfully dry hoppy finish. 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

One of the most beautiful pours I’ve seen in a beer. Had that pefect thick, dark brown, tiny bubbled head. Beer is blacker than black. Smells of pure goodness, roasty chocolate and burnt coffee. So thick and rich. Nice sweet malt opening that progresses to a heavy chocolate and caramel and coffee presence. Some hops peek though next and then back to a sweet but not too sweet finish, with some raisins, molasses and licorice showing through as well. Yum yum, give me some. Very HEAVY beer but with a silky smooth mouthfeel, almost like whole milk. Perfect for any occassion, with or without food, but goes great with thai.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 Completely black body with a nice brown head. Smells of raisins, chocolate, and milk. Taste is huge. Hints of sweet coffee, maple syrup, and chocolate. Alcohol comes in and bites you on the finish, which is bitter and roasty and actually quite sweet. And its extremely smooth. Nice stout, I like it a lot.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2005
A pitch black beer with a thick brown head, absolutely beautiful. Roast and chocolate dominated aroma with pleasant creamy notes. Sweet, full and extremely nice. Chocolate is dominating in the flavor as well with lots of roast and an excellent bitter end. Rather alcoholic, more evident than the oak aged version. Very good balanced and a nice soft mouthfell. This is a huge beer!!

650 ml bottle. Pitch black wiht a gorgeous thick dark brown head and very sticky lacing. Aroma is also rich and sweet, heavy malt, molasses, caramel, prune, vanilla, blackberry, underneath a massive bitter cocoa and intense roasty aroma. Flavour is of coffee, dark fruit, soy sauce and faint licorice. Massive roasty flavour with a big bitter finish. A bit bitter than I’d ordinarily like, but still very enjoyable.

Very heavy roasted nose, caramel, malts, some sweetness and alcohol can also be detected. Very thick and very dark brown to black body, with a wonderful ruby tint, big fluffy brown head. Lots of roasted malts in the flavor, coffee, chocolate, ends on a bitter roasty note. Very creamy and balanced.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Bottle, bomber: Wanted to try this first before the Oak Aged. Pours a thickish nearly opaque brown/black with a big sustaining brown head. Aromas were big, roasted malts (coffee, toast), chocolate, toffee for a little bit of sweetness through the roastiness. Flavor was similar with a roasted malts coating the mouth, chocolate and toffee are still there, with an unexpected soy sauce appearance. Velvety mouthfeel and a lasting roast aftertaste.

22oz. bomber thanks to Goldtwins. Black with a medium sized brown head that doesn’t go away. Awesome aroma of dark roasted malts, chocolate, and some soy. Flavor was pretty much the same as the aroma which in this case is a very good thing. A wee bit thinner than expected, but by no means thin and watery. Delicious. I liked this much better than the Oaked version.

Bottle, written in marker on cap is "03/4". pours black with beautiful brown head. aroma is awesome and reminds of expedition/speedway. Flavor is just as it smells though it is not as thick/chewy as the afformentioned brews. Not thin by a longshot , but thin for the expectations the aroma set up. I taste choc, roasted malts, a bit of soy sauce which is not unpleasant.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Pours like motor oil. Thick, opaque black with a thick creamy brown head. Looks like a frothy milkshake. Quite lacy and tantalizing. Smells like milk chocolate with some coffee bitterness underneath. Taste is a wave of roasty dark malt. There’s a coffee bitterness that steps right up and bites you. Sweet malty chocolate, mily offset by that powerful mocha bitterness. The mouth is surprisingly creamy with that lingering coffee bean aftertaste. Tasty beer and surprisingly drinkable. A newcomer to ATL and a welcome one. A fantastic imperial stout that takes no prisoners.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 Black, Black. This beer is a joy ride. Coffee flavour. Roasted and slightly smoked. Finsih is mederately hoppy and soft. Great imperial stout. I’d love to try a matured version.
