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).

Shippy (43) - - NOV 17, 2015
Poured from a bomber. Pours black with a big, brownish head made up of dense little bubbles. Aromas of roasted malts, a little smokiness, and some dark fruit on the end. Taste is malts up front, lots of roasted malts, followed by some chocolate and some lingering bitterness. Dark chocolate and milk chocolate flavors are clearly present. The aftertaste is of strong dark chocolate, while the flavor earlier is more milk chocolatey. The colder it is, the more hoppy bitterness you taste. Heavy, smooth, milky mouthfeel. Very full bodied, with a hint of carbonation. Definitely some noticeable booziness. Overall very good imperial stout. Let it warm up a bit and it’s a great dessert on its own. Or, make a Yeti float!

Dahlstrom (127) - gasvetksgatan 3, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2015
355 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Pitch-black with a medium brown head. Lovely aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel and coffee. Taste reflects the aroma, but here the roast really takes over. Medium to full-bodied. Medium bitterness. Soft to medium carbonation.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle in LA. Pour is thick pitch black with dark head. strong hot/solvent alcohol on the aroma, more than its 9.5%. Roastiness aroma beneath that. Taste is mildly sweet up front, flavour is rich chocolate and roastiness, american hops, dry and hoppy bitter finish. bitterness, warming alcohol and astringency linger more than I’d like. I’ve had finer imperial stout, but very good nonetheless.

Toomio (412) - Joensuu, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2015
Aika tupakka ja tujakka. Reiman ja Viljakaisen kanssa 60’s palaverissa. Hyvä kyllä, mutta ehkä yksi iltaan.

Samuel214 (217) - SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2015
Flaska från SB. Kolsvart, oljig vätska med ett halv finger tjockt mörkbrunt skum som hänger kvar på kanterna. Fylliga, söta dofter av torkat johannesbröd, mörk chokladkaka, soja, toffee, fruktsyra, mörkrost, bränt socker, lite lätt nötig, kaffe och värmande alkoholtoner. Fyllig, len kropp, något oljig. Inleds med värmande alkoholtoner, kraftig maltsötma och går över i rökiga toner av charkuterier, enbär och kaffe och kraftig efterbeska. Rakt igenom en riktigt bra imperial stout - fin att både titta och lukta på, riktigt härlig i munnen och en lång smakbild med flera nyanser - kraftig och välbalanserad!
