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).

12oz bottled in Feb 2007. Delicious, deep, rich. thick. mellow, fudge, coffee, dates, and then as it warmed it got good. Sure do wish I had another seven year old bottle of this.

A perfect example of the quality of beer breweries should start with before they go tossing it in wood barrels with cocoa nibs and organic kale. Hugely flavorful and aromatic with chocolate, coffee, toffee and char.

Shark_Pants (168) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2014
Apr 2014 650ml bottle. Pours like ink with higher than expected carbonation creating an aerated 2 finger dark brown head that leaves nice lacing. Aromas of mocha, milk chocolate, vanilla and roasted meat - very inviting. Taste is initially fairly sweet, caramel, dark chocolate and stewed plums, then transitions to a coffee bitterness and finishes with a dry charred meat flavour. Full bodied, nice oily mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

Bottle (12oz): pours black with small Dakotan head. Flavors matched description which is not always the case. Some bitterness in the end. Not very sweet. Very nice.
