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).

Pours pitch black with rich beige head. A very rich aroma that begins with hops and then goes into toffee, coffee and finally chocolate liquor.There’s a lot of fun in this stout, even if it’s hard to chug the bottle in one go.

Aromas of char, cocoa, woodsy, dried cherry, subtle booze. Black with a mostly lasting chocolate brown head. Very dry, savory, soy flavor, burnt chocolate, bitter. Full bodied, warming.

mike67 (830) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, toast, dark fruit, alcohol and cacao. Body is full, creamy and smooth. Taste is of nutty, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit and herbal hops. Finish is long and bitter. Great RIS.

Pitch black syrupy poor with a nice amount of mocha head. Aroma is big Bready toasty malt with coffee and slight chocolate. Taste is thick and slightly dry. This was an awesome imperial stout had all the factors that I enjoy about this style!

Great solid imperial. Thick black pour. Nose was boozy, citrusy, piney, roasty, and a little bit of coffee. Taste followed with nice balance and a warming finish. Appropriately big body. Nice beer.

ThreeCats (605) - ISRAEL - OCT 30, 2014
Black with a nice, dense, dark mocha head. Aroma of lots of roast, chocolate (especially bitter chocolate), dark fruit and some orange. Taste very roasty with a lot of bitter chocolate. Unfortunately, what Great Divide calls "Wonderfully dry hoppy finish" I call "hop character way out of style and a way to ruin a great RIS". Could have been great, except for that...

Very enjoyable. Deceptively smooth at such a high abv. I like the oatmeal version even better.

maltman53 (386) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Pours dark-chocolate black with mocha-color, persistent, creamy head. Gobs of dark chocolate on the nose, all the way through the entry, middle, and finish palate. Overall, hides its 9.5% ABV beautifully, with no cloying alcohol heat or sweetness.
