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).

ON TAP: black pour with beige head, glass lacing, aroma has obvious roasted malt flavors. Smooth medium-full body, short finish with hints of chocolate aftertaste and medium alcohol (nice, considering the strong ABV).

bottle 12oz: Poured deep black with a small dark brown head. Smell of roasty toasty malt and licorice and slight spice and some smoke. Taste was roasted malts slightly sweet with a nice bitter touch and a slighty smoky flavor. Thick mouth feel. Overall I liked this better than the Oaked version (apparently oaked beer ainít my thing). Great brew.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2009 Black pour nice creamy head. rich malty chocolate coffee flavor. Dont let the stout fool you. This beer is hoppy. Lots of that hoppy funk in this one. One of my new favs. Added 11/26/2009...just tried a 2007 yeti. This beast aged beautifully. I have a 2006 in the fridge canít wait to try that in a year or so

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!

SourNotes (104) - Bloomington, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2011
Appearance: looks beautiful. Jet Black stout, brown creamy head pours thick with a thin half finger head. creamy creamy creamy Smell: smells of malty coffee, with a hoppiness giving it a little sweet fruity/flowery aroma. Taste: I taste fig and some Walnut up front and through the middle, and a toasted oat taste on the outside. very strong coffee aftertaste like espresso or a good strong jet black coffee was expecting chocolate but i didnít get much of that. its a pretty hoppy beer though, there is a strong hoppy bitterness, i feel it could use a hair less of that. Drinkability: its not real chewy, it rolls well, kind of oily on the tongue sticky on the lips.

I saved this brew to rate as the first one that would count after my ten ratings. What a magnificent stout Great Divide has come up with here and I look forward to trying the other varietals composed within the brewery. Aroma is that of chocolate, caramal and espresso. Yeti coats the palate and rewards your tastebuds in a fully hopped and delicious experience. The drinkability is almost to good and for such a full beer, Yeti goes down quick and smooth. For those looking for a benchmark Imperial Stout this is an excellent choice.

Poured from a bottle. Color is inky black with a good head and retention. Laces well all the way down the glass. Wonderfully roasty with enough hop bite to balance it out. Finishes dry and clean on the palate. Iíll be visiting Total Wine for a 6 pack.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2006 I really wanted to love this. Unfortunately, I just thought it was mediocre. Great color, decent aroma, flavor was more hopped than I care for. Alcohol was very present especially as this warmed. Became bitter and astringent on the finish. Wasnít too crazy about the aftertaste, just too bitter.
