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).

Coffee, cocoa, and nuts in the aroma. Strong mocha flavor with some raisins and molasses. Lots of roast coffee bitterness and some alcohol in the finish. Really nice big stout.

Awesome. Terrific 2-finger head, nice lacing indicative of the outstanding creaminess to come. Rich very dark color. Wonderful aroma of malt and caramel. Paired with spicy tuna sushi. Highly recommended.

Amazing beer. Very dark and heavily roasted body, but yet with a fresh touch of fruity hops. Great.

MartzMimic (52) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Pours a very dark reddish brown. Creamy milk chocolate head that hangs around a bit. Heavy lacing. Chocolate, coffee and malt aroma. Dark chocolate, coffee and alcohol explode. Nice, nice bitterness. Coats the tongue. This is nearly a perfect stout. It’s complex, but everything comes together so well.

This an unstoppably complex beer. Pours pitch black with a tan almost maroon head. Aromas of raisins, coffee, and alcohol dominate the nose. The taste has various flavor from coffee to chocolate, from burnt toast to vanilla. Always with a subtle sweet chocolate finish lingering right at the back of the mouth. Malted milk and tobacco enter the palate as the beer warms up. Phenomenal. An almost perfect example of an imperial stout.

Super dark super thick, viscous. The nose is roasted and toasted. Taste is layers of char smoke. Not too too sweet like some other imperial stouts, there's a few hops you can pick out. Nutty too. It's good, could benefit from a nitro tap. Or some barrel aging as I'm sure the others are splendid.

Appearance - jet black. Aggressive pour gives a slight head that dissipates Aroma - slight sweet fruit Mouth - velvet. Awesome. Like motor oil Taste - medium heavy malt. Bitter finish but not overbearing. More bitter than most stouts like this. Overall - excellent. Gets more bitter after more is drank.

JBPortland (458) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 4, 2014
22oz bottle pours dark rich brown/black with nice foamy 2 finger head. Nose is rich coffee, nutty roast, dank dark cocoa. Taste is very smooth rich bitter chocolate and roast coffee beans, touches of sweet hershey mixed with bitter cocoa. Finish is more of the same with some chocolate cake and lasts. One of my first favorite imp stouts, and still amazing.
