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).

cgarvieuk (20699) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2008
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

Black color; the head reduces quickly, but leaving a nice lace. The aroma is a wonderful mix of hops and roasted malt, dark chocolate. Dense flavor, fat roasted malt (and caramel, malt) flavor, some cardboard, maybe glue, alcohol feeling; in the end offering notes of cookies, coffee, strong liquorice; powerful body. Prepotent bitterness, in a long final, with a lot of roasted malt. Huge.

Blackest color; dark brown thick head. Strong aroma: malt, roasted malt, light liquorice. Good structure, not too thick, not too oily; extreme roasted malt character, with coffee, liquorice; very strong hopping with hidden aromas.
Chewy coffee; extremely balanced. Give me more!

Leighton (18032) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2011
Draft at the Euston Tap. Pours jet black, you know, oily with a brown, dense head. Holds a piercing, intense mocha aroma, lots of roast. Just a ridiculously intense flavor. Quite sweet, but the sweetness is overpowered but the super roast, tobacco, charred malts, chocolate syrup and scorched trees. Full in body with average carbonation. Lots of alcohol warmth on the finish, more dark mocha than any human could possibly want, tobacco, oil, light minerality, some stinging chocolate, coffee beans, lingering bitter coffee grounds. Really, super intense. Great beer.

Bottle. Ok, this is truly embarrasing. I made alot of notes about the beer, only to waste them in the laundry later on. So I will give it a try without the notes. Black color, nice big lasting brown head. Great roasted aroma with tar, chocolate, cocoa, licorice and lots of really bitter hops. Flavor is as raosted and bitter, chocolate, licorice, tar and cocoa. Lovely bitterness and a wonderful body. I promise to save my notes next time I try this beer...

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.

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

Cant believe I’d not rated this juan ! Picked up at Systembolaget Malmo and chuged on the train back to CPH, 21/08/15. Black with a decent dirty tan head that retains well. Nose is rich roast, chocolate, spice, bitter fruit, charring notes, burnt toffee. Taste comprises chocolate, spice, toffee, chocolate biscuit. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light boost in a warming close. Decent impy but another of the old guard that I don’t feel warrants the 4+ score in this day and age.
