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: FEB 19, 2005 Bottle at Chris’ - thanks joet. Very dark with a beautiful chocolate head. Lovely strong aroma of chocolate, no apparent alcohol, beefy. Strong flavoured with sweet malt, chocolate and coffee and a really strange addition of piney, citric, resiny American hops.

Pours like used motor oil. Thick and black forming a small brown head. Huge roasty malt nose with a pronounced burnt sugar note. Flavor has large ammounts of chocolate and coffee that lingers on the palate almost too long. Excellent brew and I will make this a regular.

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Pours just like many people say: motor oil. Creamy dark brown head that sticks to the side of the glass like glue. I smell a musty chocolate and heavy licorice. It tastes very complex to me. Starting from a fruity raisin or date like taste, turning into a black licorice then finishing off strong chocolate. It fealt thick in my mouth and seemed to be gritty near the bottom of the glass. I enjoyed this, but couldn’t drink a lot of it.

Aurelius (4175) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2005
Dark malt-hoppy aroma with whiffs of chocolate and some fruit. Very drinkable but not very complicated. I like the throwback label -- reminds me of a bad Johnny Quest cartoon from my childhood in the 60’s. A good balance between bitter cocoa, sweetness, roast and hops. Pours like pothole patch. Strong but very drinkable. The main flaw is some greenish nut/grassy thing going on but it’s minor. A sturdy effort. Medium-heavy body.

Bottle, from lumpy, thanx man. Poured black and thick, like used motor oil. cannot see any light through this bad boy. Tight, creamy rich brown head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate and roasted malts. Oh, mmmmmm. Sweet candy chocolate with a caramel back bone followed bye a hoppy-pine finish. This clings to my mouth. Feel full and decadent. As this warms, the hops really come foward and almost dominate, which is OK by me. The final sweetness is blended with the alcohol, which at 9.5%, is going to pack a wallop when I work my way through 22oz bottle of Black lushes hoopy love.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 23, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2005 Black and thick as used motor oil, I love this stuff already. Fluffy, whipped chocolate mousse head...must have stayed around for 10 minutes at least. Lace is sticky, probably gonna need a scrubber to get it out of the glass. Aroma is not as massive as it’s appearance would lead you to believe that it should be, roasted malt, woody, some chocolate and coffee backer but only slightly so. The flavor is amazing. Strong roasty malt right up front, burnt wood, coffee, semi-sweet chocolate and caramel with a welcomed bitterness to finish. Body is big, deep, thick and oily, and definitely silky smooth. This is a must have.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 19, 2005
Just traces of a dark orange head. Of course the body is black. The aroma is relatively light with some grass, tobacco and brown sugar. The taste is very roasted with hints of raspberries, dark chocolate and toffee. A relatively light impy stout. Plenty of carbonation. A solid, but not spectaular brew.

Frank (2865) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2005
Deep dark black with a big old brown head. Nose is luxiurious with velvet strains of milk chocolate, coffee and raspberry. Thick and luscious--incredibly smooth aside from an aggressive touch from the hops. Silky smooth carbonation and nary a hint of alcohol. Not obnoxiously complex so it retains an all too easy drinkability. Reminds me somewhat of Brooklyn Black Chocolate stout--a high compliment coming from me.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Body seems to be thick on the pour, opaque with a deep mocha head. Aroma is chocolate malt, coffee, alcohol, caramel. Taste is toffee, espresso, and bittersweet chocolate. Alcohol coverage is very average. It is pretty damn hoppy that really holds back some of the sweetness that you’d usually catch.
