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).

Pours like a black coffee and creates a thin burnt sienna colored head and makes a nice spattering of lace on the walls of my goblet. Smell is of deep roasted malts and chocolate. Bittersweet dark chocolate and roasted malts, coffee flavors fill the mouth, strong alcohol and a rather bitter finish. Mouthfeel is exceptional, very smooth and soft carbonation and is not cloying or sticky on the palate, has a relatively dry finish. Yeti is welcome for dinner any time, it stacks up well to the other players in this field of massive American stouts.

Ok, ingen är perfekt så vi börjar med det tråkiga: Det finns en del spretighet i smaken - lite okammad i Yeti-pälsen. (Det var väl första och sista gången jag fick skriva det.) Om vi nu bortser från det är det här en sjuhselsikes åktur. En ohejdad lavin av arom och smak nerför Tibetanska bergssluttningar som man vill vara med om om och om igen.

Draft. Pours black with thick creme colored head. Some sweetness with a coffee bitter finish. I wish it was a bit thicker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blind RIS experiment [Sample 5/20, 3/30/2015] Poured by myself. Lovely thick inky black pour, like for real used oil. Dense dark brown head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is odd -- unsweetened baking chocolate / cocoa powder laced with windex. At first opening I swear I smelled nail polish remover, but that was gone on subsequent sniffs. Hops have a spicy, floral character. Pretty potent hop component. Taste/texture combo leaves the impression of sooty coffee grounds, like right at the end of a French press. Reasonably dry with tons of bitterness. Coffee and roast, very little sweetness. This is one roasty bitter son of a gun. Full body, appropriate carbonation. Lasting bitter finish. As it warms further there’s this sour dark roasted fruit component that’s pretty unpleasant. Doughy on the midpalate, harsh alcohol burn. Overall: are all non-barrel-aged imperial stouts unappealing to me, or have I just been front-loading? Also, aftertaste reminiscent of edamame? What’s with that?

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours thick, oily, pitch black with a thick tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, whisky, brown sugar, prunes and Vegemite. Taste is much similar leading to a heavy bitter finish. Great beer

on tap at Dog & Bull in Croydon - you can taste the alcohol in this one. A good strong chocolate stout.

Pours like chocolate syrup with a deep brown head. Aromas of chocolate and toffee greet the nose and similar but more intense flavors follow on the tongue. Subtle flavors of burnt caramel are also present. This is a big bold beer with lots to offer. Definitely one to try and to order again. And again, and again.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very black in colour with a coffee coloured head. Aroma of hops, dark chocolate, coffee and lots of roast. Flavour was roasty, some coffee, creamy, chocolate with a slight sweetness. Finish is creamy, roasty and long. Very good.
