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).

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass, pour’s thick and black with a nice brown head, lotsa lacing on the glass. The toasty aroma was noticeable upfront. Flavors of coffee, caramel, cocoa. This is a huge beer, full bodied, thick and chewy without a lot carbonation. This thing lasts! I will hope to find a BA version of this somewhere down the road. Until that happens, I will be hard pressed to find something better. WOW!

(Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout) 650ml bomber at home, served into a snifter, ABV 9.5% 2012 vintage. Black as tar colour on the body, small dark brown head, thick and creamy, with good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Strong aroma that I can smell while my glass is sitting next to me. Vanilla, light alcohol, chocolate, cake, toasted malts. Great taste, sweet. Same as the aroma, vanilla, chocolate cake, the alcohol not so notable here, toffee, light caramel, some hops even, roasted malts on the finish, coal. Medium thick body, good carbonation. Very good, even better when it warmed up a bit.

One of my favorite smelling beers to date! Bourbon, dark chocolate, vanilla, wood, prune, Bold coffee. Pours like oil or molasses with a thick 2.5 finger, caramel head. Dry dark Chocolate on first sip with hints of Bourbon and burnt caramel. Dry, almost creamy finish. Booziness comes out as it warms. Incredible flavor depth and profiles. One could almost find any flavor of there in this beer.

Bottle at Whole Foods, Sarasota, FL. Black & beautiful. Strong & rich Roast flavor, with bitter chocolate and smoke. Cloves? Not my favorite, as the alcohol didn’t hide the coffee very well...but overall not bad.

The Yeti Imperial is a delightfully balanced medium to heavy bodied stout with a robust introduction of mildly sweet toffee flavor and a pleasant smooth smoky finish

Aug ’14. A 0.355 l bottle from Systembolaget, Upplands Väsby. In the absence of local imperial stouts I finally went for this classic. It was cheap, too. Poured pitch black body with small brown head atop. First sniff revealed coffee, licorice, some caramel, even lemon. Complex roasted aroma along with secondary notes like cinnamon, overcooked fruits and some volatile notes with it. Flavor was lightly bitter, both from spicy herbal hops and roasted coffee-like malt. Pleasant maltiness generally, wide palette of flavors here, ranging from caramel to fruits and even vanilla. Full bodied with long coffee dominated finish, that showed some herbal and citrus character, too. Very good imperial stout, did not exactly blow me away, but it’s definitely a true classic.

nihtila (1928) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2015 Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh. Thick black beer with brown head, oily texture. Aroma has plenty of roasted malts, and coffee and cacao. Palate is very smooth and oily. Taste has velvety roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Finish is cocoa powder, almost ashy, with plenty of hops. Heavy but not too much, highly enjoyable.

Pitch black in color w/ dark tan head 3 fingers in depth. Aroma is dark roasted malts, coffee and cocoa nibs. Taste follows the aroma with a big hop presence in the back end. Silky smooth mouthfeel.
