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).

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 14, 2005
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.

ElManana (1763) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2016
Bottle at home, aquired in a trade, long time ago. Chocolate, pretty bitter which adds to the full body, caramel and some toast. Pretty nice.

Aroma includes caramel and lots of roasted malt. Has a nice bitter hop finish that elevates the beer.

Muzzleloader (27) - FINLAND - AUG 20, 2016
A bottle from Alko. Pours pitch black with brown 1-finger thick head. Sweet molasses, surypy nose with some toffee, burnt sugar, caramel and coffee notes. Thick and bit oily mouthfeel is balanced with quite nice carbonation. Initial sweet taste of dark maltiness, coffee, chocolate, caramel and suryp turn into bitter and long finish.

mrjez (440) - Osaka, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2016
Bottle. Pours jet black with a solid dark tan head, great lacing. Gorgeous. Deep roasted malt and dark chocolate aroma, coffee. Full decadent flavour, not complex but rich and very bitter tail. Not a full-on body for the style, easy to sip, a little chocolate sweetness, drawn out bitterness, warming booze note. Great stuff.

commonmac (1025) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Tap at the brewery to start a tap room crawl kind of day. Attractive looking dark black color with a quarter finger tannish head. Roasty, coffee and a dark, dried fruit aromatic quality. Taste has continued roasted coffee notes and nearly a Belgian dark fruit quality. Some mild bitter chocolate characteristics. Pretty delicious stout.

Pours jet black with a large brown head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is chocolate and some espresso. Body is pretty light for an imperial, but goes down very smooth. Flavor is roasty malts and chocolate. Finish has a splash of alcohol with caramel. Love this one.
