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).

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

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2010 Bottled. Jet black, even more black, and topped by a creamy tan head. Coffee, hops and hints of chocolate in the aroma. The flavor has a lot of sweetness and there’s roasted malt and coffee. Full-bodied and dry, with a finish of sweetness, alochol and some chocolate. The promised bitterness is well hidden, but that’s ok. This is a really nice beer, but if I could choose, I would go for the oak aged version. Rating: 8-5-7-4-16-4.0. 060704

Bottle at Patricks. It pours a pitch black, oily body and a small, dense, dark tan head. The aroma is intense and lovely. Licorice, molasses, some ashtray and quite roasted. Nicely hopped too, citrusy and piney. Well hidden alcohol. It’s full-bodied and oily, slightly warming. The flavor is much like the aroma. Lots of darkness and with a bitterness level suited for the beer. Sweet and burnt. Really lasting finish, a little too warming. A lovely beer, although not very well suited as the first beer after work. 101105

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2008
Bottle from Utobeer. I had the oak aged version 2 years ago and was probably at the time my first big US Impy Stout and I was blown away by it. So a couple of year down the road, what do I think of this one? It’s black and viscous. Thick tan head. Aroma of heavy hop, lots of oily roasted malts. Lots of hop and choc. I do really rather like it. Lots of choc. Very oily in mouth. Not too much carbonation. Lots of everything actually. So much choc. It’s lovely. Lots of hops on end. Gorgeous. Really smooth in mouth too. I guess with these big beers, you either like them or not or have a particular favourite, well this one I think is one of my favourites, not quite Speedway, but close.

Dedollewaitor (14110) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2006
When you pours this you quickly smell and see that this is not your average brewed stout. This one has characther. Thick black with brown head. Strong chocolate and coffee notes. Filling in the mouth. The finish is lasting and pleasant bitter. WAUW! (Best imperial stout ive tasted to date)

Theis (13801) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2006
Bottle. A lot more squeezing than the oaked version, not so sweet. Still black with a brown head. Smell: coffee, chokolade. Taste chokolade, strong hop, roast malts, coffee. Again the taste of undesolved chokoladepowder, this dry chokolade flavour.

Travlr (13422) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 28, 2010
33 cl bottle. Very dark brown, medium dark brown head that settles quickly. Great lacing. Aroma of Hershey bar and roasted coffee. Taste is over roasted coffee beans and bitter cocoa. Very thick, almost chewy. OK, but a bit overpowering.

Opaque black, creamy small expresso head. Flowery hops in the nose. Lots of licorice and hops. Long roasted licorice flavor in the aftertaste.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2005 Black with dark brown head. Coffeeish, slightly chocolatey aroma. Stingy alcohol taste but this is more than countered by chocolatey, lightly coffeeish malts. Hop balance is noticeable, but not aromatic. Straightforward, tasty strong stout...the hop bitterness and black patent has me thinking a bit of McAuslan, but with more alcohol.
