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).

Pours a dark black with tan frothy head that fades quickly. Smells of roast, caramel, toffee, and hops. The thing that suprised me was the hidden floral notes of the hops. They really shined thru in this one and I havenít found that in any other Impy. Quite delicious and well worth drinking!!

This was black in the glass with a chocolate/coffee nose, just what you would expect from a stout. The flavor was very roasty, slightly alcoholic, with a touch of dirt. Yes, dirt. A little light on the palate for the style. Bitter finish. Not overwhelming in flavor, itís not trying to be something it isnít.

Bottle (650ml) - Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev - courtesy of yours truly. Poured black, with a good dark brown head - a thing of beauty (oh, belt up, jerc! I know it wasnít perfect...). A feast for the nose - oak, other woods, resin, a mix of dark roast malts, some oils (lemon, juniper), plenty of hops, as well as fruit, raisins, alcohol. Taste - well, quite a lot of roasted, almost burnt malt, chocolate, and a virtual avalanche of different hops, fresh cream; it starts dark malt/hoppy and finishes very hoppy, almost to harshness. Mouthfeel is at least medium bodied, bitter and alcoholic. I liked it a lot, but the Oak Aged Yeti is a full cut above - this one is a little to hop-demanding and not as harmonious as I would like.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2005
Black body, small but creamy chocolate coloured head. (3+) Oily palate coats the glass. Lacklustre sweet malt in the aroma does little to support the dominant mild roast. Flavour is surprisingly bitter and hoppy. Malt and chocolate notes seem quite subdued compared the bitterness of the roast and hoppy bite. I am not appreciating the hop presence in the same way as in say Alpha Klaus or Bear Repulicís stout, and I am not sure why. Medium palate. Much less rounded than the Oak Aged version.

rickgordon (3851) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2005
Bottled. Sampled at plan b during the RBESG pub crawl. Black, with a tint of red. Roasty nose, with notes of coffee, chocolate and a wonderful accompanying hop tone. Body is extremely rounded. Coffee and dark chocolate notes. Amazingly yummy.

DanielBrown (4320) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle at Plan B during RBESG 05 pub crawl. Great smell: coffee cream and searing hops. Oily black, with a brown fuzz head. Wonderful strong flavour: deep roast on a crispy hop background. Excellent combination of well sourced flavours, which works brilliantly. Awesome. (Big thanks to Rick Gordon and Hammenlind for seeking me out because they knew I would love this!)

Very thick black color, lots of smoke in the aroma and lots of chocolate. The body holds up well, the chocolate is real, not plastic and the coffee is huge, i love this one copared to its oaked counterpart/.

22oz bomber all to myself.. Pours black and thick like liquid tar with a small dark tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate and hops. Flavor is rich, thick, and heavy with burnt malt, espresso coffee, molasses, and dark chocolate. Almost too much at once, this beers sips slow. Long roasty bitter hop finish. The flavors are so intense itís a while before you even think about alcohol being present, and it packs a good kick at 9.5% Amazing that so much can be packed into a beer. Everything about it is massive. A bomber is almost too much for one person. Not something you will want to drink every day, but awesome.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 [bottle - 22 oz] Dark black pour with a long and lasting tan head. Very thick and rich aroma of roasted malts, alcohol and sweet malts and molasses. The taste is very sweet at the beginning, lots of roasted and toasted malts and chocolate. The middle has more of a hoppy bite with some possible toffee taste mixed in. The finish is very rich and sweet with lots of alcohol and surprisingly not much aftertaste.
