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).

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 The pour is black color with a small brown head. Aroma is of dark fruity plum notes, roasted caramel malt, some notes of cacao and espresso. Taste same as aroma with some notes of licorice, and a good bit of dark malt and a kind of dry roasted espresso bitterness. Palate is a full rich body, mild carbonation, slight viscous mouth feel. Finish has some dark fruit plum notes, licorice with a rich dark malt cacao and espresso bitterness. Overall a very good full flavored and enjoyable brew.

The beer pours pretty much back with a huge tan head and lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is espresso and dark chocolate forward with some piney hops. It smells sweet but not overwhelmingly so. Aromatic & inviting.

The beer is plenty bitter & plenty rosy. It’s got a good sort of expresso & cocoa thing going on without being "chocolate syrupy" It’s a sweet beer with a little dark fruit but the bitterness, the piney hops and the big roast character really do a great job of balancing that.

Obviously a classic for a reason.

Aroma of roasted and sweetness. Dark color with a beige minimal head. The taste is perfectly balanced. Lots of bitterness and sweetness. The body is full with a creamy texture. Overall a great beer.

Yeti is a killer beer. It's big in every category. Looks great in the glass. I'm not going to say anything that everyone doesn't already know. Just try it.

Very dark coffee look. Coffee flavor was there but tasted a little off. It was good, but definitely on my top list of stouts.

BOTTLE 12 OZ from Cuningham. Intense, yet balanced. Rich black malt character, black chocolate, quite sweet - hint of dark honey, not acrid roasted flavours. Unlike many other impies, it has a distinct citrus hop accent. Excellent.

Svart med et nydelig høyt mørkebrunt skum. Noe anonym duft med kaffe og sjokolade. Dette følger i smaken sammen med en del lakris. En del bitterhet i ettersmaken. Virker noe ubalansert.

Bottle from Total Wine. About a year old. Poured at home into a snifter. Very dark color with a light mocha head. Slight lacing. Nose is roasted malts, cocoa nibs, Nestle Quick, vanilla, caramel, and sweet milk. The flavor is so good with chocolate cocoa, creamy sweet milk, caramel, vanilla, and a hint of spice. Medium to full body, somewhat of a hoppy finish for this style but it works. Moderate carbonation. Awesome.

Very dark appearance, almost black. Aroma of chocolate, caramel and malts. Flavors begins with sweet chocolate and caramel and finishes with a tasty hop finish. This beer has a great flavor profile.
