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).

Strong alcoholic taste, no special smell, coffee and chocolate, good bitterness, not that extreme as it’s aged sibling

Roasty, malty, dark chocolate bitterness. I have a hard time pulling out the hop bitterness mainly from the dark chocolate malt bitterness I taste. Smooth and alcohol is super well hidden for the ABV on this one. The Oak aged one adds a whole new level of complexity, and my favorite is the espresso oak aged, but original yeti is tried and true. Oh and in case you’re wondering I Believe.

Really good imperial stout. Chocolate hit me first thing in the aroma. Also some citrus hop notes. Very drinkable for the abv. For some reason the taste for me fell off a bit as it warmed up. Wonderful mouthfeel.

Roasty chocolate aroma. Very dark opaque beer with a thin coffee colored head. Combination of malty, roasty, chocolate notes with a bitter hoppy finish.

Bottle. Awesome. Wonderful flavors with a great balance of toffee, chocolate and coffee. The color was very opaque black and a nice caramel head.

StormCoat (106) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Tasted a 12oz bottle from Best Damn Beer Shop in San Diego. Tasted from a snifter. Pours a brown so dark that you could probably just round it up to black, with a reddish, dark tan head. You can tell it’s pretty heavy-bodied just by looking at how it coats the side of the glass. Has a huge aroma of chocolate with undercurrents of roasted almonds. Flavors are sweet at first, and rich as hell throughout: dark chocolate, espresso, and molasses mingle with a date-like fruitiness. Big, bold, and very good.

Since there are 5 pages of tasting notes on this beer already I will just offer some knowledge about it that I have not read here and that I may have special privy to. This beer ranked 2nd in the 2003 Alpha King Competition which determines the hoppiest beer in America. I know because I judged in it and was lucky enough to have the #1 and #2 beers at my table. How does an Imperial Stout do well in a hoppy beer competition? - Well, it is very hoppy and very drinkable which were the 2 requirements for the competition.

Just incredible. Really tempting aroma with a pitch black color. The flavor is very full with a chocolaty, caramely flavor that gives way to a toffee aftertaste. Absolutely delicious

One heck of a stout. Aroma is heavy on the hops, lots of chocolate, caramel, burnt bread, toffee, very complex and pleasant. Such a hoppy smell for an impy stout is nice, and none too common. This sucker pours black as night, with a near-red/orange head. Flavor is quite nice- hoppy up front (wierd) but plenty of chocolate, coffee, toffee, malt, with a dry roasted finish. Yummy. Mouthfeel is seriously thick and coating. A DAMN good stout here!

Pours jet black with a small of white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma has a lot of chocolate some coffee some hops and a few other aromas, however the most powerfull aroma is definitly the chocolate. The flavor again has a lot of chocolate and coffee. The finish is long and bitter. there are some hops in the finish as well. A very well done Imperial stout!
