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).

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. It’s an extremely complex beer, and the awesome flavor hides it’s high alcohol content very well. Just about as good a beer that I have had thus far.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 One of the thickest beers I’ve 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. Don’t plan on having a heavy meal within 24 hours of this one.

pours rich and thick, with a nice dark creamy head. aroma is of perfectly roasted malt living in balance with a strong hoppy undertone. velvet mouth feel. the beer has a great start and finishes with a bang, every sip is a joy.

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.

acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 21, 2005
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 there’s a whole range of flavors that make this a very complex imperial stout. I would say that it rivals Stone’s.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Huge imperial stout. Massive aromas of hops and a good amount of alcohol. Flavor is deep and roasted, bitter chocolate, espresso and a wallop of hops. Nice dry finish with a bitterness that creeps up the sides of your tongue.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2006 Pours black with nice brown head, mostly diminishing, nice lacing. The aroma is big and roasted, lots of chocolate, some fruity esters, some citrus hops, a bit of alcohol. The flavor is very dark bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, dark fruit, caramel, a touch of citrus comes at the end. The texture is thick and creamy, very coating. The finish is long and warming.

Pours jet black with a small of white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma has a lot of chocolate some coffee some hops and a few other aromas, however the most powerfull aroma is definitly the chocolate. The flavor again has a lot of chocolate and coffee. The finish is long and bitter. there are some hops in the finish as well. A very well done Imperial stout!
