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).

On tap...I clearly don’t like imperial stouts which was expected honestly since I don’t care for any type of stouts...other than on chocolate one I had. Anyway, this tasted like grill scrapings with some Hershey’s syrup. I gagged it down.

Great beer. A looker too. Inviting black with mocha head. Huge espresso and oaky booze on the nose. Taste is a great balance of coffee, chocolate, smoke, booze and a great bitter piney finish. Never fails

Draft. My new all-time favorite beer. I will have to re-calibrate my ratings, to accommodate this beer. A dense, sweet, complex mixture of coffee, chocolate, and malt flavor. Intense flavors. Slightly astringent finish, buffered by the overriding sweet flavors and aromas. Will give a 4.9 overall rating, to accommodate an as-yet un-tasted more perfect beer.

Helsdon (250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2015
Not too often you get a beer sporting an overall rating of 100, guess that’s why I had this fella brought up from Buffalo. My first great divide. Yeti or not... poured and inky dank black with a sheet of mud-brown head. Nose lots of deeply roasted malts, sweet chocolate and a little coffee. The sweetness takes a step back on the taste, lots of roasted malts that are a touch burnt, but not unpleasant. Coffee, chocolate and a decent balance with the bitter and the sweet. Excellent brew.

Such a great beer. Extreme dark chocolate, espresso coffee, caramel and raisin with the booze adding a bit of warmth. Would love to try this at the source.

Tap@Fermentoren, Copenhagen (4/4/2015) - black pour with tan head. Roasted malty aroma and taste, some burnt notes, some milk chocolate, caramel, coffee, light vanilla, great stuff.

Bulk_Carrier (2532) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle dated February 25, 2015. This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a jet black color and it pours like motor oil. A thin tan quarter finger head dissipated practically immediately. Stringy lacing clings nicely around the glass. The smell took a light pine from the hops and allowed a nice gracing of roasted coffee and an ample amount of milk chocolate. The taste had a nice bitterness between the coffee bean and the piney hops. The milk chocolate balances to bring out a nice sweetness. A lingering sweet to roasty milk chocolate aftertaste starts and feeds into the finish. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium on the body with a great sipping quality to it. The carbonation sits good for the style and for me. Bitter piney and roastiness rolls over my palate in a sticky sort of glazing. Overall, definitely a good Double Stout that I would have again. Nice to finally have the horse before the cart, about time.

GIJOE (771) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pours pitch black with a voluminous, frothy, brown head that stays long. Copious lacing. Nose is huge malt with bold coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is bitter dark chocolate up front, trailing off to a slightly burnt toffee. Full body, playful carbonation. This is a tasty beast that stout lovers will enjoy.
