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).

Black coloured with brown head. Chocolate, liquorice and malts in the aroma. Smooth and sweet flavour with powerful notes. Some coffee and hop bitterness in the finish. Smooth and well rounded.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2004 Re-rate bottled as Yeti Stout. Not as thick, motor oily and beef jerky-esque as Maverick. Still incredible with that big roasty, coffee and chocolate flavor. Bottled as Maverick Imperial Stout 2003 series. Awesome. Pours black as death with a small brown/amber head. Looks like heavily used motor oil. Aroma is highly unique: chocolate malt, dark coffee and smoked beef jerky! Taste is of dark coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, big hops, caramel and dark fruit. Sweet. Mouthfeel is full, creamy and oily. Aftertaste has a nice roasted hoppy bitterness. Highly recommended!

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2004 Pours with a very thin brown head. Aroma is a bit of soy, roasted malt, and some chocolate. Flavor is of bitter roast malt, and bitter chocolate. A hop kick pops in when the malt flavors die down. Good solid palate without being to thick or syrupy. Nice beer. Very dry and bitter imperial.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2004 22 oz bottle 2004 yeti-pours jet black with a nice brown head-excellent! fantastic aroma like a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie. flavrors show huge roasted and chocolate notes with some hops in the finish. This beer is excellent! Ok, im going on a rant here. This beer is very under-rated IMO. Tons of chocolate notes that meld with caramel and toffee to create the taste of a milky way candy bar. For me, this is a top 10 imperial stout! Very under-rated. This will age very nicely and cant wait to see how it turns out. 22 oz bottle 2003-pours almost pitch black with a minimal tan head. nice looking brew. robust flavors of coffee and chocolate. no alcohol detected. well balanced and solid. I need to get more of this stuff. thanks to whaleman for sharing this fine CO brew

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2004
Fully opaque black body and ruddy-brown head with fair lacing. Milk chocolate nose. Coffee and chocolate flavor. Nice bitter coffee finish. Body feels a bit light for an imperial stout. Still damn good though.

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - APR 11, 2004
Whaleman 2004: Poured pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of hops and coffee. Dry with a slight sour milk bite. Finishes sour with bitter hops. Good but not great. Sorry Eric!

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2004 22oz Bottle no Date. Thanks to Raindog for the Bonus Brew! This bad boy poured black and as opaque as could be. Leaves a huge dark bown head that lingers for a long while. An impressive looking stout for sure. The aroma is quite hoppy for the style and blends well with its notes of sweet roasty chocolatey decadence. Some licorice is also present yet faint. The body is full and smooth and everything you expect in this style. Very creamy with just enough carbonation to keep it in check. The flavor is a chocolatey espresso treat. The licorice detected in the aroma is even more subtle in the flavor. This all adds up to a winner in my opinion. Overall an excellent Imperial and probably equal to or possibly better than my other favorite from Left Hand, another Colorado gem.

TheBeerGod (5230) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2004
2003 vintage. Pours black with a brown head. Nose is roasted malt and coffee. Perhaps dark chocolate or cocoa as well. Taste has more of the same with licorice added to it. Some definite coffee notes in the taste along with licorice and alcohol. Some bitterness during the mouthfeel and finish but, man, this is good. Very good Imperial Stout!

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Uh, wooooo. Deep viscous black with a beautiful blood red head. Rich nose, chocolate and loads of malts, lots of molasses and plums. Very good flavor, strong and very vinous. Huge roasted malts, lots of chocolate, a pleasing hint of bitterness at the end. Full and creamy, yet very quaffable. Quite spectacular.

argo0 (11452) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 27, 2004
(2003 Bomber) Small dark brown head atop a motor oil body. Aroma is sweet, big malty, coffee, citrus hops, some vinous, some alcohol. Taste is medium sweet, coffee, grapefruit, some vinous. Finishes with a medium alcohol warming/burn. Big body. No question they put shitloads of malt and hops in this one -- beautiful beer.
