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).

Big massive beautiful beer. Pours nearly black with very little head. Lots of lacing. Up front it is all burnt stuff, espresso and bitter chocolate. Middle has some hints of caramel, and finish is again coffee. Tastes are sweet, and big bitter in the end. medium carbonation with a light creamy mouthfeel. Great stuff!

Bottle at home. A very good beer, but I had higher hopes. Guess I have been told too many times that this is the best imp. stout in the world. It proberly never got a fair chance:-)

Dark opaque black. Very small tan head. Coffee, dark chocolate, roasted grains. Sweet, some bitterness from the roasted malt. Thick, heavy body. Very oily, very chewy. Decent amount of acidity. Pretty upfront alcohol. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (4067) - BELGIUM - APR 12, 2016
Great Divide’s acclaimed RIS, so far only tasted in its oaked version but now it’s time for the original. Creamy, lacing, stable, pale greyish beige head on top of a black beer with mahogany edges. Lovely, rich and flawless bouquet of cocoa, coffee grounds, vanilla, stewed beef, bayleaf, cappuccino, cured bacon, salmiak, some shoe polish, roasted pine nuts. Restrained, well-placed candied fig sweetishness in the mouth surrounded by a thick, beefy umami edge, softish carbo with very creamy, thick, oily mouthfeel as is to be expected from the style, thick bitter chocolate sauce, caramel and coffee-like roasted bitterness, mouth-filling, ensuring a long dry finish along with a spicy dosis of peppery hops and a glow of warm, whisky-like alcohol. Classic American impy in every sense, this completely lives up to is reputation, but then I admit to have a weakness for the style.

Nonshaugen (329) - Fetsund, NORWAY - APR 11, 2016
355 ml bottle. Jet black beer in the glass, thin mocca coloured head. Aroma is wonderfull, packed with dark chocolate, coffee, leather and tobacco smoke. Full bodied mouthfeel, thick, well carbonated and bitter. Flavours are plum, cherry, alcohol and loads of bitter chocolate and coffee. This is the final beer for the night, or at least it should be...

This is an absolute meal of a beer and it’s wonderful. Had it on tap and aromas of coffee and chocolate were practically jumping out of the glass. There’s a nice roastiness as well. Taste is big roasty coffee, chocolate and surprisingly not massively sweet. It’s a little dryer if that’s even a thing. The big win for this was the delicious coffee flavor. It’s a beast of a beer and definitely worth trying.

AdolfoCC (79) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 8, 2016
Servida en Snifter. APARIENCIA: De color completamente oscura, no pasa la luz a través de ella. Corona de espuma color marrón de burbuja algo abierta, un dedo y medio de altura y poca retención, un muy buen lacing en la copa. AROMA: mucho chocolate amargo, caramelo, café tostado, muy ligeras y discretas notas de lúpulo con notas de pino y el licor se percibe en nariz, pero no es agresivo. SABOR: ¡Wow! de entrada el amargor moderado, seguido de toneladas de chocolate amargo, toffee, caramelo, café y sus notas torrefactas, tabaco, queda un ligero gusto como pastel de chocolate; el retrogusto con amargor moderado y ligeras notas de lúpulo algo herbal y terroso, no llega a ser astringente, además de una sensación cálida del alcohol nada agresiva. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo pleno y baja carbonatación. RESUMEN; una excelente imperial stout de gran calidad.

Bawelt (373) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAR 29, 2016
Juste wow... Le bouquet est puissant, du café très fort, très torréfié, un fond chocolat noir ultra typé, des fruits noirs (prune, mûre), un fond vanillé, quasiment bourbon. Bouche tour aussi puissante, ultra torréfiée, assez amère mais parfaitement équilibrée par les côtés vanille/bourbon. La longueur est d’un café incroyable et légèrement chocolat au lait. Vraiment hâte de goûter la version bourbon BA.

On tap, Crazee Burger San Diego. Amazing flavor, not overpowering but perfect for the style. The alcohol is there but it is not overpowering. Great beer.
