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).

Velvety smooth like a marshmallow going down a water slide (?!). Uncharacteristicly hoppy at first followed by a roast coffee finish. This beer loves up to its legendary status. Rated by BrewTom

Julie does not like the 2013 version. It is too smokey. V. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thick dark black with very little brown head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavor has a good bit of coffee bitterness. Warms the gut a little.

Although I prefer more chocolatey/milky stouts to coffee ones, this is an ideal imperial stout nonetheless! Perfectly viscous, thick, oily liquid that is jet black with a great thick brown foamy head. Taste is extremely rich and creamy. Coffee, toffee, roasted caramel throughout. Sweet. Excellent brew!

God øl fin mørkk farge, lukter friskt og godt. Skummet holder seg lenge på topp. Klarte ikke helt å beskrive smaken, men veldig god.

Nische (871) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2014
Black with brown head. Aroma is hops and chocolate. Flavor american hops, chocolate, coffee and rostes malts. Full body with creamy texture. Slight bitter finish. A little bit lower IBU and this one would be excellent.

Nydelig duft av kaffe, bek, lakris, sjokolade og vanilje. Tykt brunt skum. Mørk brun, tilnærmet sort farge. Nydelig smak av lakris, kaffe og mørk sjokolade. Sier ikke nei takk til en til ved en senere annledning.

355ml bottle from BrewDog Cardiff. @home 21-09-2014.
Bottled: March 2014.
In short: robust bitter Imp. Stout.
Had it several times some years ago but not rated till i found the bottle @BrewDog Cardiff.
Pours black with nice quite tan creamy head. Moderate to short head retention, some lacing. Roasty, chocolate, coffee, nut and some creamy sweet aromas. Full bodied, soft carbonation, viscous texture. Viscous mouthfell, moderate bitterness, coffee and chocolate flavours, some spicy ones, ends some dry after a while. Very enjoyable. Lovely one.

BOD 6/17/14. Pours dark as a starless night. Very good head with exceptional lacing and very good retention. Rich nose of dark chocolate, very little roast character, over a nice citrus hop background with only a hint of coffee. As it warms, light vanilla notes are noticed. Rich full body with a creamy texture. Below normal carbonation with no effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is complex, but the alcohol is not well hidden. It begins with rich dark chocolate that flows into notes of coffee coupled with vanilla over a rich malt sweetness. Roast is noted in the middle over a citric hop flavor and mild bitterness. The smooth finish is dominated by alcohol and leaves a warm back of throat burn and a burnt sugar lingering aftertaste. Dial the alcohol back a bit and this one becomes outstanding.

Cubatobaco (8) - Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2014 does not count
Over a year old and holding up like a champ. Loads of dark chocolate and dark fruit with a decent amount of carbonation and mouth coating.
