COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Divideís 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, Yetiís hop profile reveals a slightly citrusy, piney, and wonderfully dry hoppy finish. 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Pours black with a frothy mocha head. Cocoa and coffee in the nose. Full bodied with flavors of chocolate and burnt espresso bean. More hops than you would expect from the style, but very good.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Pours black with a leathery head that rapidly dissipates. Aroma is heavily hopped, lots of pine and coffee, some mint and currants. Initial flavour is abrasive, bitter-sweet chocolate and hops fighting for attention, before it explodes into a gorgeous ashy finish thick with strong American hops and roasted malts. One of the most well executed and exciting stouts Iíve found yet.

JohnnyMummbles (151) - Pitman, New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Poured from a 12 oz bottle a dark black opaque beer with a massive dark chocolate head that adds a great lacing around the glass from start to finish. Aroma is strong of coffee, espresso, and dark chocolate. Flavor is very good with notes of coffee, chocolate and slight bitterness from the hops, A very well balanced imperial stout...very good.

shroud0fdoom (150) - Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Taste follows the aroma on this except there is a rich bittersweet chocolate flavor upfront. Nice coffee, spicy bitterness that lingers for awhile. Very well rounded brew. Very dangerous, 9.5abv is well masked by all the roasted malt, and bittersweet chocolate and fruit notes. Highly recomended.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Dark nearly black color tinted red ever so slightly, a milk chocolate colored head floats atop. Tastes like it has some coffee/chocolate hints with a little bit of a roasted flavor.

Bottle. Pours a deep dark chocolate brown with a thick frothy mocha colored head. The aroma is great with strong notes of coffee and chocolate. Thick texture. Main flavors evoke thoughts of thick black coffee and dark chocolate. There is a nice balance of hoppy finish. I have had the Oak Aged Yeti too but it was a while back. This one is outstanding and makes me want to revisit the Oak Aged.

joechristenson (149) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Absolutely opaque and chocolate brown teetering on black, this is a beautiful beer. Not much head, but itís mocha frothy. The aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, and bitter sweetness, along with pronounced citrus hops. Oily, tingly, and thick, this beer is a joy for the tongue insofar as the palate goes. For a beer drinker of my limited experience, the flavor of this beer is more baffling than it is inscrutable. While I certainly appreciate tasty hops, the pineyness of the hops in this beer make for a strange complement to the bitter, roasted sweetness of the chocolate and coffee malts. The dry, bitter finish is nothing to complain about, but I would love to try a sweeter version of this brew.

Pours a dark opaque black with a dark brown head. When they said it was an onslaught on the senses they werenít kidding. It has a very malty taste with a bitter after taste. I drank this out of a shaker.

If this was a tad cheaper, my weight would certainly climb. Black, thick and big. Tan head invites you in to a nose of roasted dark chocolate and carmel. Very expasive stout that leaves itself open for interpretation, such as definate roasted malt and toffee with some mild molasses. Some say coffee, however being a coffee-beer lover, I didnít get it. Itís a little more hoppy than you would think a imperial stout to be. One of my all-time favorites. Thank you, Great Divide.
