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).

Philip (436) - Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2006 Poured on the night of Edwardís (brooklynboy) surprise tasting, side by side with the Oak-Aged Version and accompanied by about 20 other stouts rated 3.95 or higher on this site. Onto the beer: Pours a decent color with a bit too much carbonation, and not a very dark head. Some solid notes of bittersweet chocolate and Sumatra coffee on the nose. A bit more of the same on the palate, although not as lush as one would be led to believe by its score. Some raisan and cream on the palate lead to a solid finish. Good, not exceptional. UPDATE: On draught at Crane Alley, Urbana. Once again Iím amazed at how much better imperial stouts are on tap. This impressed me yesterday with its mouthfeel and notes of soy, semi-sweet chocolate, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Much better on tap.

bottle. Great opaque black with a dense tan head. The aroma is very thick of chocolate, coffee, and accented with some pine. Nice chewy mouthfeel and a huge balance of malt and nice spicy hops. This is damn good, but is lacking that little extra flavor that the Oak Aged Yeti packs.

mjg74 (2910) - La Mesa, California, 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 (3824) - 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.
