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 brownish black with a tan head. Burnt, roasted and caramelized. But also rich, creamy and chocolatey.

Opaque black pour with a significant brown head for an imperial. Nose is mostly roast and oats. Palate is very heavy and sticky dense. Flavor is fairly typical for an imperial that starts out roast, has nice toffee and oak middleground, and finishes with tar and dryness. Not quite as bitter as expected. I had a freshly brewed bottle and it was good, but it was also clear that it was rough around the edges. Alcohol presence prevents the fruition of many of the latent flavors. Worth cellaring and another look.

Bottle, 2010, Thick black pour, zero head, Coffee notes upfront, followed by dark chocolate malt with a slightly bitter hop finish. A little hot and very fresh. Enjoyable beer.

FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2008
12 ounce bottle- poured out a thick tar black. The head was an incredibly thick caramel brown and lasted until the last mouthful. Aroma was very chocolatey and sweet. First impression was that this was one of the smoothest stouts I had ever tried, texture was pure silk in the mouth. Great toffee flavor with a hint of black coffee, but was in no way sweet. Excellent, really enjoyed it.

Bottle. 1 Pint, 6 Fl. Oz. Dark as night with thick, frothy, dark tan head. Dark chocolate, malty aroma with balanced, full bodied palate with creamy texture. Nice flavor with an even nicer finish.

FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 Pours thick and black, with little head. Great aroma...sweet, roasted malt with some alcohol. The flavor was a bit too strong and overpowering for my tastes. It reminded me of a barley wine more than a stout. Although there was some definate bitterness, the hops weren’t as present as the description would seem to imply (which I was personally happy about). In the end it was a good, strong stout, but it won’t go in the regular rotation.

From a bottle. pours very dark and has some amber come through when held up to a light. Aroma is malty, chocolate, coffee, and some caramel along with noticible hops. The first sip reveals much of what I smelled. Surprising this beer is pretty hoppy... alot more than other imperial stouts I’ve had. Great beer and the oak aged one is even better.

Huge amount of hops in the aroma. Some malt, some chocolate. Beautiful deep black. Dark brown head, lasts forever. So complex, I don’t know where to start. Begins with a bit of soy, but quickly becomes a rich dark roast. Not quite creamy enough for me, but great bitter chocolate. Nothing too interesting in the mouthfeel. Standard. Great appearance, good taste, nice aroma. Not as great as I expected, but good beer.

udflyerfan07 (173) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2009
12oz bottle. Poured pitch black with very fluffy dark brown head. Tons of malt aroma with roasty, coffee, and chocolate all present. Taste medium bitterness, with flavor bursting on the tongue. Palate is full body, thick feel, with a bitter finish. Overall a great Imperial Stout. Really enjoyed this stout.
