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 the color of molasses with a caramel color head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Thick mouthfeel like syrup in your mouth. A tad bitter on the backend but the IBU rating belies the massive taste of this beer. This is smooth as silky chocolate. Damn good.

Pours inky black with almost no head. What head there is, is a deep dark brown. There is a great blend of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. There are hints of toffee on top of it as well. It has a rich texture to it. The chocolate tastes mix well with coffee and toffee overtones with a complex blend of roasted flavors. This is definitely a quality brew.

Yeah, MatSciGuy’s. Just wow! Huge, huge thanks! You know... the Oak Aged Yeti was the first American-brewed beer I’d ever tried, back in 2007.... I’ve tried the Espresso version in the meantime but it took 7 years till I got to try the original... wow :). In any case, pitch black more or less with a dark brown medium sized head. Aroma... coffee, soft, creamy maltiness, caramel (yeah, now I see that it says the same in the comm description too, but it’s not off the mark), lovely... Distinct notes of chocolate, malty, rye bread, very light alcohol. Chicory bomb in the taste, dry, sweetish yet soft, some jaffa cakes, light bitterness (when 75 IBU shows as "light" you can imagine how full this is... or how burned out our palates were at that point... oops?) going into the finish. Deserves the hype in any case.

Black pour, thin Brown head. Hop aroma. Taste starts chocolate, espresso, caramel, and vanilla. Ends slightly bitter and boozy. Big flavors! Very good

damn solid stout, had a typical black/brown pour and had a nice full complex body with a nice bitter hop aftertaset at 75ibu’s. not quite to the level of expedition stout or founders imperial stout. but a damn good one non the less

Big and bold with heavy hits of chocolate and caramel. Not overly sweet and very drinkable at such a high ABV.

CacheManyHose (168) - HONG KONG - MAY 30, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 Pitch black but not super thick, fine dark tan head. Smells great - huge coffee, chocolate, woodsy leather, bright lemony hop, a little bit of soy sauce but nicely balanced by bitterness. Taste is similar though with less soy and more hop. Super smooth body with just the right small amount of slickness. An amazing beer.

HKdIPA (214) - HONG KONG - MAY 30, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 Bottle from Bottle Shop at home. Pitch black pour with thin dark tan head. Aroma is roasted, chocolate, nut, and a bit of juicy hops. Delicious. Taste is big roasted malts, bitter, chocolate, with surprising juicy hops flavor before bitter boozy finish with lasting bitterness. Rich but not oily palate. Really great imperial stout.

On tap at the brewery. Ink black with thin tan head, looks like a cappuccino in the glass. Strong coffee and chocolate presence on the nose with some hop resin sneaking through. Palate is complex, roasted malt, coffee and chocolate, some burnt caramel... Truly outstanding Imperial Stout... Wow!!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PotjeBier (1597) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
Backlog. Had this several times, both bottle & draught. Bottled version: pitch black color, opaque. Thick dark head, which recedes after some time. Aroma’s: strongly roasted, ground coffee, mocha, light fruit. Burnt malts, some acidity, sharp & sweet malts retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet, hard roast, light acidity. Strong alcohol feel. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel. Long finish with quite harsh bitterness. This rating doesn’t seem to make it appealing, but it was very good!
