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).

Not my favorit of I.S. but pretty good nonetheless. Not as hoppy as i came to expect while reading other ratings. Lots of coffee, some chocolate and roasted malts mostly blasted my taste buds. Caramel hints swirled in the mix too.

licorice, raisin, port, milk chocolate, dark plum , and grass dance throughout the nose like John travolta in Grease....the beer was black as black is and was covered by a medly of small and medium sized frothy bubbles...Hoppy intro, especially for an imperial stout...and this is followed by chocolate raisin...damn this is one bitter stout....with a lot of roasty notes too...too many for an imperial stout.

2004 Bottle. Black body with a very attractive thick brown head. I was about to call this an "ordinary" imperial stout until I really got down with the hops in this guy. Itís hard to tell exactly what they are because well-balanced with a truckload of chocolate and roast malt. Thereís a strong effervescence in the finish, I think itís a combination of hops and alcohol.

22 oz bottle (2003 Yeti version): gorgeous pour -> incredibly opaque black, with a fluffy, tight dark red-brown head. Red-gold lace. Pungent aroma of campfire, tar, burnt vanilla beans, melted dark chocolate, maple infused sap, and just a whisper of the American hops. Wicked flavour of bitter, piney coffee, chocolate milk, molasses, charred oak, and black cherry skins. Mouthfeel is thick, viscous and all around sticky, but is missing the velvety carbonation evident in the best examples. Ah, hop burpsÖhops definitely dominate and actually the palate gets pretty acidic, but the overall flavours make this one truly interesting and greatly enjoyable.

Prime example of a fine stout. Iím salivating over this malted chocolate with sweet mocha aroma. Head is thick and levels out while leaving behind a lacing just like hot chocolate does to a cup. Flavors consisting of fudge brownies,brown sugar, raisin and some mighty hops thrown in as well. A nice oily texture with a fine amount of hop bitterness and roasted malt. Aftertaste is of a strong Turkish coffee while giving off a light rum kick.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2005 Bottle: (Alias Maverick) Strong licorice aroma with chocolate and coffee. Pours an extremely dark, motor oil black with a small tan head that fades quickly. Very malty. Great flavors of coffee, licorice, and chocolate. Finishes light bitter black coffee with nice malt balance. Some alcohol is noticeable in the finish, but very light. Moderate bitter black coffee aftertaste. Have had recent trouble with getting a real good imperial lately but this is one very good.

VERY Black Coloring with Espresso Head. Very Malty and Chocolatey Aroma.. Dark Caramel...Roasted Flavor...Dry and Hoppy too, but Not Enough to Keep a Malt Lover Away... Little Thick and Very Syrapy in Appearance... Warming Noticed After the Fact... GREAT Winter Brew!

Iíve seen dark beers before, but this has to be the darkest. NO light is seen through it. Very brown head to.. a bit creamy but not much of it. Thick roasted aroma with coffee, chocolate, and various fruit hints (including cherry). Taste... nice and thick with roasted malt... slight smoke hints, cherry, chocolate, coffee. Quite bitter as well, but the extreme amount of everything else sort of makes it a "general hop noise". Nice that it isnít overly sweet. Smooth oily palate. Its quite big.

shadey (1929) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Pours like motor oil. Brown creamy thick head. The head is so perfect it leaves a little foam ring on the glass with every delicious sip. Mix of Coffee, Chocolate, Cherri and some other things I couldnít recognize. Silky smooth mouth feel. A delicious imperial. I am very happy with Great Divide. Thanks to Kawa.

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.
