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).

Bottle: This is great. Beautiful dark color with a light brown head. It is bursting forth witrh a complexity of roasted flavors including chocolate, coffee, charcoal, and burnt grains. It has a great feel and is a pleasant drink.

This is the darkest beer that I have tried without a doubt, itís like a black hole; my lights are going dim. The nose is very expressive with plentiful aromas of caramel, chocolate, coffee, hops, malt, and hazelnuts. One would assume that the beer is going to be full-bodied and it is, but itís not too sweet. The palate dries out nicely. On the palate the most dominate flavor is dark bitter chocolate followed by fresh brewed coffee. The hops seem to be appropriately balanced in accordance with the beers gravity. I expected more from the finish, itís by no means short, but I thought that I was going to be bowled over with a long complex finish. A grand Imperial Stout has been crafted by Great Divide that covers all the style bases.

rdawson321 (145) - USA - DEC 6, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2006 Pours like oil with a thick lasting head. Aroma fills the room like freshly brewed coffee. Exceptionally complex, you need the full 22 oz bottle to find everything. Rather high ABV is masked very well (until you try to stand up). Super heavy and super hoppy, notes of chocolate, caramel, smoke, toffee, and brown sugar. Very smooth, very thick, very good. Expensive brew, but worth every penny.

An excellent beer. One of the heaviest beers I have ever consumed (think 10W-5). The flavour well masks the very high alcohol content (chocolate and malt).

22 oz. bottle. Pours out like motor oil - thick, brownish-black, viscous - with a medium tan head that clings nicely to the glass. The aroma wafted up with a strong roasted malt and chocolate tone with some coffee and caramel notes. The flavor is just massive roasted malt in the beginning with some milk chocolate sweetness, coffee and smoke undertones and then finishes with a very interesting hoppy flavor. I had a hard time beliving this came out of a bottle because it was so smooth and rich as if it came out on a nitrogen tap. Itís an extremely complex beer, and the awesome flavor hides itís high alcohol content very well. Just about as good a beer that I have had thus far.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 28, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 One of the thickest beers Iíve ever come across. Pours is midnight black, viscous, with no head. Roasted malts, chocolate, and toffee dominate the nose. Very thick mouthfeel with the same flavors. Light smokiness and caramel come through with it. The end is a nice bitter hop, which is different end for such a heavy beer. Donít plan on having a heavy meal within 24 hours of this one.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2005
22 oz. bomber. This one looked great coming out of the bottle. Pours a dark, oily black with a brown rocky head that has an almost orange tint to it. Very cool. Molasses, roasted coffee, and chocolate dominate the aroma. The taste has a lot of bitter chocolate and coffee. Nice and thick in the palate. This is one phenominal stout.

While it looks great, the aroma of this beer led me to believe I would be sampling an average imperial stout. Boy, was I wrong. In the mouth thereís a whole range of flavors that make this a very complex imperial stout. I would say that it rivals Stoneís.
