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: FEB 25, 2006 Pours pitch black color with thick tan head that dissipates slowly. Rich taste of chocolate, coffee, and malt with hoppy finish and hint of alcohol aftertaste. I enjoy, but I’m not a huge fan of stouts, but this is a tasty one.

Black color with a brown head. The taste is sweet roasted malts with a nice alcohol sharpness. Notes of liqourice, coffee and chocolate bitterness. Very nice

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2007 Bottle, at the brewery? Great Divide is a small production brewery. they gave an excellent tour, but are only equipeed with a few of their beers on draft. They were happy to open up bottles of anything that we wanted to try. Big, black, bold, and beautiful! Roasty aroma of dark chocolate and burnt sugar, with a little coffee. A great 1-2 punch along with the oak aged version. It has a little more edge, or nuts if you will, but they are both excellent. Huge, roasty, and a dry finish that kleft me desiring a lot more of it. HOWEVER, IT DOES NOT MAKE FOR A GOOD SESSION BEER!!!!!!!

Pours a deep brown/black hue with a light brown/tan head with nice cascading lacing. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, a little nutty with a light sourness almost floralness on the nose. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice, smooth, bitter finish. Flavors of the normal coffee, chocolate, but the hops are there that give it a little nudge on the back of the tongue. Very easy to drink and not as over-cloying as many of the other impy’s out there. A very drinkable stout similar to rasputin, just not as roasty.

Bomber into tulip glass, sometime in 2004. 2003 vintage (Maverick label). Smells like a strawberry tinged latte, but not intensely. I wish the aroma were more potent, but still dope. Black in the glass. Remember the show X-Files? Remember the alien black substance that took over people’s minds? Looks like that. Brown head, fully disapears. Hopsy hopsy hoppity! Is this an IPA stout? More coffee than an IPA, but mostly straight up bitter with some nice grapefruity undernotes. Finish lingers forever. Very impressive. It proves that barrel aging ain’t everything, since Oak Yeti depends on all this dopeness underneath to support it. Fantastic stout.

Black color with a dark brown head. Bitter coffee aroma. Huge bitter roasted taste that was just too overwhelming. I corked the bottle to give to a friend because I couldn’t finish it. Just because you can make something taste bitter to the point of it being unenjoyable doesn’t mean you should.

Thick, dark, roasty, heavy and caramel-malted aroma. Opaque, with a small head. Some lactose, slightly sour flavor. Not quite as well-balanced as some other I.S.’s. Indeed, like the commercial description says, it is unusually hoppy. The alcohol is quite obvious.

[maverick imperial stout 2003] Impressive black pour with one of the darkest tan heads you’ll ever see (but it disappears quickly) - warm, inviting alcohol nose, with aromas of vanilla, bourbon, charcoal, hickory - a little on the thin side, dispite this complex and "heavy" aroma - not overly-sweet, with a lot of dark chocolate/espresso bitterness - quite a dry finish for an imperial - starts with a lot of promise, and ends a little lacking.

Pitch black body with a light brown head. Light roasted malty aroma with some dark chocolate sweet notes and a nice hoppy touch. Sweet chocolate flavor with hints of some coffee. Finish has a lovely dry bitterness.

I felt a little let down, especially after the big alcoholic chocolate nose. Smooth Imp Stout, no doubt, but a bit thin on the aftertake, perhaps it’s the hops, but I still hugely enjoyed this one.
