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).

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2006 Pours black with nice brown head, mostly diminishing, nice lacing. The aroma is big and roasted, lots of chocolate, some fruity esters, some citrus hops, a bit of alcohol. The flavor is very dark bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, dark fruit, caramel, a touch of citrus comes at the end. The texture is thick and creamy, very coating. The finish is long and warming.

Pours jet black with a small of white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma has a lot of chocolate some coffee some hops and a few other aromas, however the most powerfull aroma is definitly the chocolate. The flavor again has a lot of chocolate and coffee. The finish is long and bitter. there are some hops in the finish as well. A very well done Imperial stout!

[RBG Low Countries 2005] (Sampled) Full and strong aroma of roasted coffee malts. Cloudy, black/brown coloured with a brown, lasting head. Taste is (hop)bitter and a bit sweet. Roasted coffee malts. Good body.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Black as night and opaque. I couldn’t see a halogen light through it! Luxurious brown head with superb lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, some floral hops, and subtle alcohol. Tongue coating wonderful mouthfeel. Coffee and roasted malt flavors give way to woodsy hops that keep coming on stronger in a dry finish. Delicious and complex, this is an excellent Imperial Stout.

22 oz bomber. Pours a pitch black color with a very thick creamy beige head. Aroma is unusually hoppy for an imperial stout. Slight coffee scent and malts also detected in scent. Flavor is very hoppy with hints of coffee and sweet chocolate. Different, but great.

bomber from kms399 acquired via a recentt rade. pours like old used motor oil, thick and black! a dark tan head fades to a lucious ring of lace and chases its way down the glass with every sip. aroma of deep roast malt and coffee. flavors are more of the same with hints of bittersweet chocolate and high hop bitterness. a solid impy, but the roasted flavors are a bit overpowering and seemingly unbalanced for my palate. thanks Ken for this one and the great trade.

A very nice imperial stout. Pours an opaque black with a dark head. Flavor is dominated by chocolate malt up front with a warming coffeeish finish. A great beer for a cold autumn night.

Nice label. Pour was thick and inky, with dark dark brown head. Mmmm. Huge malt aroma, with a tang of alcohol on the nose. Hops? Probably, but I was revelling in the malt smell! Thick malty yummy taste! Stout as it oughtta be. Quite bitter with the hops, with a strong resin flavour. Fantastic, complements the huge malt flavour and knocks back the alcohol taste. Mouthfeel a bit grainy, thick, rolls around your mouth. Astringent finish refreshes your mouth and makes you crave another go! This is close to my ideal stout....

22 oz bottle. Pours an opaque motor oil black. It has a good sized creamy head that is very dark brown. The head quickly goes to a bubbly film and collar that laces the glass.

The aroma is lactose, chocolate, some bitter hops, wood, and anise. There’s also some dark fruits and alcohol.

The flavor is anise, lactic cream, coffee, chocolate and some fruitiness. It has a pretty sharp burnt bitter finish that leaves a slight sticky aftertaste. It’s well balanced between the sweet and the bitter (tending a little more towards bitter), and the alcohol is well hidden (yet belly warming). The mouthfeel is full and creamy.

Overall, similar to the oak aged version, but I liked this much better. It was a little more tamed in terms of alcohol and bitterness. One of the best imperials I’ve had to date. It’s still a tad rough around the edges...I bet this would age nicely.
