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).

Bottle aged since October 2004. Pours thick black, setteling opaque beneath a pancake batter thick light brown head. The aroma is roasted, sweet, coffee, and chocolate malts. THere is still some noticable hop of the citrus variety, and a bit of alcohol also in the aroma. At a second whif, dark fruits and more chocolate emerge contributing nice complexity of aroma. The flavor has strong and sweet bready malts in a thick liquid meal. There is chocolate and clean husky sweet malt along with a slightly earthy bitterness and tangy, somewhat warming alcohol finish. After it warms a bit, coffee flavors emerge and it finishes roasty and full.

Aged about 6 months in my beer fridge. Pours deep, thick black, tiny dark brown head. Fills the nose with a nice balance of sprucey and floral hops, backed up by roasted coffee and cocoa. In the mouth the malts, roastiness and chocolate come more to the top, and the hop aroma comes up in the finish. This strikes me as a very well balanced Imperial Stout. I didnít detect alcohol. Despite a somewhat syrupy and oily appearance itís not too sticky or slimey or syrupy in the mouth. Itís still heavy in body, but itís a little chewy, very soft, velvety. I will probably buy this again.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 Thick black with a brown chocolate hue. The smell of coffee and alcohol rushes from the bottle. Velety smooth with a very sharp hop bite finish. A good stout.

Thank you Tidiaguy! This beer has a delightfully soft creamy texture but is loaded with flavor. It packs a punch with its roasted layer of coffee, caramel malt and chocalate notes swirled around in an array of hops. It is complex but incredibly balanced and tasty. I like this one better than the oak aged version.

Really fabulous beer. Exactly what an imperial stout should taste like. Loaded with chocolate, toffee and caramel flavors.

Very dark color, like black! I really like this.. right when it hits my mouth it tastes bitter followed by sweet flower taste and then finishes bitter again. It has a real burt taste. I donít usually drink stouts on a regular basis, but i do know that this one was better. It didnít seem to fill me up as much as the others, these kinda of beers are usually like a meal and although this was like a meal.. it wasnít as bad.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 26, 2006
22 oz bottle. Poured thick and black with a brown head that laced the glass. Big malt nose with molasses, caramel, and chocolate notes. Flowery hops round out the aroma. Slick and oily with lots of alcohol flavor and a burnt roastiness (almost tarry) that lingers along with the alcohol and some hop bitterness. Strong molasses. Very bold. Successively sweet and then acidic.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
"Maverick" 2003 edition. Beer pours a nearly opaque black-brown color with a small, light brown, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma is thick and huge! Malty with sweet heavy notes of burned caramel, roasted grain and molasses and moderate notes of black coffee; Hoppy with heavy notes of resin/pine and herbs; Strong miscellaneous notes of sherry/cognac, resin/pine and smoke. The flavor is heavily bitter, lightly sweet and lightly acidic with a long, warm, heavily bitter, lightly sweet finish. The body is full, the texture is syrupy and the carbonation is soft.

A little lighter in color than most imperial stouts. Pretty roasty in flavor. Good beer, but ive had better imperial stouts.
