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).

355ml bottle. Pours pitch black, with a brown head. Compact, roasted aroma, coffee, chocolate, ashes, caramel, hops. Off-dry, full bodied, high bitterness, creamy CO2. Roasted, rich taste, tar, licorice, chocolate, coffee. Long finish, still very young. The ashy note become very evident as the beer develops in the glass. (2014-06-15)

Yeti is a great stout, but I prefer the other varieties (chocolate and espresso). Overall though, the pour is dark black and it has a nice malt flavor. It is slightly more hoppy than the other iterations as well, but Yeti is a good old standby.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Pours thick and black with half a finger of reddish light brown head. Dense, gutsy aromas, some potate peel, dark roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Good balance of dark density and freshness on the aroma. The palate is full bodied and powerful. Balanced sweetness, loads of coffee and roasted malts. Good lingering bitterness on the long finish.

Pours the color of molasses with a caramel color head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Thick mouthfeel like syrup in your mouth. A tad bitter on the backend but the IBU rating belies the massive taste of this beer. This is smooth as silky chocolate. Damn good.

Pours inky black with almost no head. What head there is, is a deep dark brown. There is a great blend of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. There are hints of toffee on top of it as well. It has a rich texture to it. The chocolate tastes mix well with coffee and toffee overtones with a complex blend of roasted flavors. This is definitely a quality brew.

Yeah, MatSciGuy’s. Just wow! Huge, huge thanks! You know... the Oak Aged Yeti was the first American-brewed beer I’d ever tried, back in 2007.... I’ve tried the Espresso version in the meantime but it took 7 years till I got to try the original... wow :). In any case, pitch black more or less with a dark brown medium sized head. Aroma... coffee, soft, creamy maltiness, caramel (yeah, now I see that it says the same in the comm description too, but it’s not off the mark), lovely... Distinct notes of chocolate, malty, rye bread, very light alcohol. Chicory bomb in the taste, dry, sweetish yet soft, some jaffa cakes, light bitterness (when 75 IBU shows as "light" you can imagine how full this is... or how burned out our palates were at that point... oops?) going into the finish. Deserves the hype in any case.

Black pour, thin Brown head. Hop aroma. Taste starts chocolate, espresso, caramel, and vanilla. Ends slightly bitter and boozy. Big flavors! Very good

damn solid stout, had a typical black/brown pour and had a nice full complex body with a nice bitter hop aftertaset at 75ibu’s. not quite to the level of expedition stout or founders imperial stout. but a damn good one non the less
