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).

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2004
A black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma is of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt and it is the same notes coming from the flavor. This is a great beer. Thanks to Mads Berg for sharing this one.

Papsoe (25076) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Pours black and opaque - almost tar-like - with a light brown, dissipating head. Fat aroma of hard roasted malt. Extremely solid body with lots of sweetish, burned malt with a very distinct bitterness. A tough beer to drink and digest. 171106

omhper (20324) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2003
Bottled. Extremely black with dark brown. Licorice aroma. Very sweet, intensely malty. A lot of grapefruity hops. Some coffee and an aromatic bitter finish. Full bodied and packed with flavour, I would still make it less sweet. Many thanks to hopsrus for sending this and many other great beers!

Oily black stout. The initial stout flavours are quickly blown out of the water by the massive hoppyness! Drinkable and warming though!

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2011 Bottle at home ... Deep Deep black with thin brown bubbly head ... Rich chocolate malt ... Sweet rich chocolate malts ... little caramel lots or roast malts ... quite a bit of spirit... little american hop shows through but not unbalancing it ...though the hoppyness builds a bit much over time... I suspect that this is no worse than the oak aged (from memory) yet i suspect this is a more representative score.

bottle at home ...black ... thick tan head ... big roast cocolate malts ... light pin nose ... overhopped ... light chocolate malt ... medium body... decent enough .. but doesnt excite me ... gonna stick on 3.4
