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).

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2007 This is a nice imperial that seems to combine the more vinous and roasty styles of imperial stouts fairly well. Mostly bold, roast and chocolate flavors, with a hint of strong alcohol in the aftertaste. Appearance was the fairly typical beauty often seen with sweet or imperial stouts. Dark brown to black, with a fluffy, "chocolate milk" colored head. A nice brew, and better than other offerings from GD.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2004
This pours out of the bottle like my Momís coffee used to pour, dark brown and very, very thick. The beer has a nice dark brown head... Momís coffeeís was white. Great smokey, chocolatey aroma with a hint of the higher abv. Very smooth to drink, full bodied and tasty. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, and smoke, witha dash of bitterness in the finish. A great Winter warmer. Well.. itís working well in the Fall, too.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2004 Whoa, Nelly! This is one beer that grabs you by the you-know-whats and doesnít let go. Talk about a thick, smoky, and delicious brew. It pours like motor oil, but tastes like a liquor-filled chocolate candy. Grab one if you happen to see it...

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2004
Love the mouth feel- exactly the consistency I look for in an imp stout. The hops are prominent up front and then give way to leather, licorice and dark chocolate. This is for sure a bitter imp stout on the more astringent side of the spectrum. A bit creamier and sweeter and I would rate higher. As it is- delicious!

Shared Bomber. Now this is a beer. Poured jet black. Nice hop and roasted malt balance. Alcohol is hidden very well. Yummy!!

I puored it pretty aggressively into my Chimay glass. It had an awesome black appearance with a brown creamy head. The head dissapated pretty quickly. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, black licorice, and some dark red fruit. The body is just a little thin, but creamy at the same time. Taste consists of chocolate, coffee, some molasses, and some raspberry. I really like the creaminess. Itís a really well balanced beer that combines all of the good things I like in an Imperial Stout, and doesnít have anything that bothers me. If anything, itís too balanced, and doesnít have anything besides the balance that is exceptional. Itís almost too good. Do you know what I mean? In a way it's like a slightly milder Speedway.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Pours dark black with a tan head that has a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is deep in roasted character and hints of vanilla. Flavor is dominated by an expresso taste with hints of vanilla. The aftertaste is bitter but from the roasted flavor rather than the hops. At 9.5% this is very drinkable.

JMerritt (1786) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2004
GABF 2004. Black with a small, light-brown head. Fair lacing. Roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, black licorice and molasses. Quite a heavy bitterness, the hops really came out to play here. Medium-bodied. Overall, Iíd say that this is on par with some of the other big Imperial Stouts coming out around the US of A. I always like to find more of a piney hopiness to the aroma of my Imperial Stouts, however.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
The Maverick poured the blackest of the blacks. The head was a beautiful coffee colored head that molded together nicely to the glass and the liquid symphony throughout the entire session. The nose was full of expresso, burnt chocolate, and roasted malts. The nose wasnít bad but it certainly was the low point on the Maverick. The flavor is big, what you would expect from an Imperial Stout but much more. Nice Roasted Malt flavor up front, then caramel, toffee and then a huge roasted coffee aftertaste which lingers on the palate. OHHH, What a beautiful beer. My only complaint and yes I always seem to have one is that it isnít that big up front. Still awesome though and a beer I will definately be revisiting soon.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Bottle - not a lot of hop in the aroma, but I guess that should be expected. Hints of dark fruit. Black as night with a small, but persistent medium brown head. This is one HUGE beer! So much malt - very complex - just a lot going on. At the same time, this is probably the most bitter IS Iíve had as yet. Really enjoying this one!
