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).

Bottle at home. Pours black with a beautiful dark brown head. A lot of chocolate in the aroma followed by coffee and american hops. Not too sweet and not too bitter, good balance. Subtle roast. Very smooth and velvety, creamy. Low carbonation. Alcohol warms your throat but apart from this it’s unnoticeable. Remarkable stout.

Top of the line Imperial Stout. Great flavor and with a hint of coffee, chocolate etc. - perfect finish too. For a 9.5% ABV this stout is very smooth. It was hard for me to tell the difference between the oatmeal version and the regular Yeti. Both are outstanding and won’t disappoint.

Shared 22 oz. bottle. Pours a thick brown-black with a brown, chocolatey head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, alcohol, caramel, and molasses. Taste follows but with the hops making an appearance with citrus notes and pine. Viscous and full-bodied. Bitter finish. Rather intense, but very nice overall.

Aroma is all dark roast coffee, oak, dark chocolate, leather and booze. Everything a good imperial stout should be. Beautiful jet black color with a brown head of foam. The taste is sweeter than expected but not in a bad way. Heavy chocolate notes with some oak and leather, similar to the aroma but the chocolate is way more prevalent. The finish is hoppy and has some booze to it, but neither qualities are overpowering. Good palate, overall very good. I like a few of the variants better, but Yeti is a strong offering from Great Divide.

Voici une bière qui porte bien son nom pour moi, parcequ’effectivement, c’est un animal mythique sur lequel je voulais tomber depuis un paquet d’année,et je l’ai trouvé au détour d’un rayon de l’immensité du Bierhalle Deconinck..Le grand poilu était là, sous mes yeux. Ni une, ni deux, je lui ai mis la main dessus. Il s’agit du Yéti de base. Il existe 5 autres membres dans la famille, la plus part avec du vieillissement en fut. Ce qui me laisse encore quelques belles années de recherche devant moi !! Il est temps de faire sortir la bête de sa cachette sertie. Ho là, déjà, le jus est épais et vraiment noir, le bestiau se cache sous un épais tapis de mousse bien marron...C’est inquiétant..Le mieux est encore d’y mettre le nez avant les mains .. Ho hé bé, le moins qu’on puisse dire c’est qu’on le sent arriver, l’animal !!!!! Sauvage !!!!! La Puissance!!! Un café fort, le cacao aussi,c’est grillé et bien grillé. Impressionnant !! Bon, ben... quand faut y aller ... Hohoho l’onctuosité !! c’est pas un Yeti , c’est un Panda !! envie de lui faire des gros câlins !!!ha oui mais non, car c’est bien une bête sauvage !! Quelle puissance du café !! le cacao est bien poilu lui aussi!! Le yéti n’est pas un bonhomme haut comme 3 pommes mais un vrai géant , doté d’une puissance et d’une force incroyable.Il y a à l’évidence une bonne dose de houblon pour laisser une amertume bien longue et collante sur toutes les parties concernées de la bucalité. Un excellent et rugeux Imperial Stout. Ya plus qu’à trouver le reste de la famille..
