COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

I donít think much needs to be said about this beer. It is one of the best in the world.

Tap@rattlenhum,NYC. Opaque black color with a brown head. Aroma has licorice, smoke, coffee, roasted malt. Taste is malty sweet but ends with a bitter and dry long aftertaste. Flavors of licorice, coffee, roasted malt, ash, dark chocolate and ripe fruits. Very intense in flavors.

Bottle. Shit how the hell have I never rated this? Anyhow, appearance is thick motor oil with dense mocha head, great looking stuff. Aroma is ash, coffee, roasted malts, and anise. Taste is thick coffee, ash, and roasted malts. Finishes with burnt coffee roast and ainse, full bodied, nice carb. A real classic for the style, great stuff.

NikkTwist (2003) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Draft at Good Dog. Pitch black pour with light brown foam. Lots of lace. Have had many times before but finally rating. Deep rich complicated black chocolate brew with interesting liquorice root elements. Creamy body. Strong coffee. Charcoal grill. Black leather. Glossy anise. Burnt charcoal. Lots of great dark flavors. Suppose chocolate rules over all but tons of rich peaty elements are also in the mix. Boozy enough to be felt but not to shy away from. Not to be overlooked!

Great beer. A looker too. Inviting black with mocha head. Huge espresso and oaky booze on the nose. Taste is a great balance of coffee, chocolate, smoke, booze and a great bitter piney finish. Never fails

Draft. My new all-time favorite beer. I will have to re-calibrate my ratings, to accommodate this beer. A dense, sweet, complex mixture of coffee, chocolate, and malt flavor. Intense flavors. Slightly astringent finish, buffered by the overriding sweet flavors and aromas. Will give a 4.9 overall rating, to accommodate an as-yet un-tasted more perfect beer.

Helsdon (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2015
Not too often you get a beer sporting an overall rating of 100, guess thatís why I had this fella brought up from Buffalo. My first great divide. Yeti or not... poured and inky dank black with a sheet of mud-brown head. Nose lots of deeply roasted malts, sweet chocolate and a little coffee. The sweetness takes a step back on the taste, lots of roasted malts that are a touch burnt, but not unpleasant. Coffee, chocolate and a decent balance with the bitter and the sweet. Excellent brew.

Smokey_P (10) - Currumbin Valley, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2015
Such a great beer. Extreme dark chocolate, espresso coffee, caramel and raisin with the booze adding a bit of warmth. Would love to try this at the source.

Tap@Fermentoren, Copenhagen (4/4/2015) - black pour with tan head. Roasted malty aroma and taste, some burnt notes, some milk chocolate, caramel, coffee, light vanilla, great stuff.

Bulk_Carrier (2708) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle dated February 25, 2015. This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a jet black color and it pours like motor oil. A thin tan quarter finger head dissipated practically immediately. Stringy lacing clings nicely around the glass. The smell took a light pine from the hops and allowed a nice gracing of roasted coffee and an ample amount of milk chocolate. The taste had a nice bitterness between the coffee bean and the piney hops. The milk chocolate balances to bring out a nice sweetness. A lingering sweet to roasty milk chocolate aftertaste starts and feeds into the finish. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium on the body with a great sipping quality to it. The carbonation sits good for the style and for me. Bitter piney and roastiness rolls over my palate in a sticky sort of glazing. Overall, definitely a good Double Stout that I would have again. Nice to finally have the horse before the cart, about time.
