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).

2008 bottle courtesy of BMan1113VR, thank you Andrew for my first RB trade in person. Pours pitch black with a large tan head that quickly fell off into a tan ring around the top of this black brew. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is huge! roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, caramel with a touch of citrusy piney hops. Finish is bitter , citrus/pine, long and dry. Very nice stout! I am really looking forward to the BA version, thank you again to Andrew.

Pours a prune juice color and consistency with a dense tan cap that leaves beige lacing on the glass. Wonderfully malty nose with chocolate, burnt toffee, prunes, and soy sauce (itís a first for me). Smooth, satiny feel with dark chocolate, espresso, malted dark caramel, and a nice hop tingle. Truly the real Dark Knight!

Pours black with tan head into my GD tulip glass. I get aromas of toffee, coffee, roasted grains, the glaze on the skin of a thanksgiving turkey, salt, and some tar. Flavor is similar aroma, but with more emphasis on burnt grains and coffee flavors. Finishes with roasty bitterness and nice alcohol warmth. Itís a bit thinner than I expected. Overall, a good but truly excellent RIS.

Bottle, had this at a tasting last night and it blew me away but did not finish that well overall with the rest of the tasters and I have to disagree! Nice dark body and creamy head. Aroma of Roasted nuts and Chocolate and coffee and malt goodness! It has some hops in the taste but it didn’t turn me off and I don’t like a ton of hops. Very smooth for an imperial stout. very think all around in taste and palate. this is not one to be downed quickly and good luck drinking more than one. Drink this if you want a nice stout to snack on.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2006 donít bother with me. read Pigfoot: "Appearance: solid black color, dark as the Devilís skidmarkís, with a lush, bubbly roasted, dark tan head...beautiful, canít wait to lift it to my lips, ah, but first, to smell... Aroma: bittersweet espresso, rich cocoa, creamy, delicious, toasty, tasty, with further sensations of anise, molasses, dark rum, just lingering in association. Taste: Ah! Thatís what I like! Full-on flavor, thick mouthfeel, rich, tasty, coating the entire palate with this dark delight, a chocolatey paradise in the mouth. Not too heavy, either, not too overwhelming, not too dominated by alcohol, though it does slowly make itís presence felt, this is an exceptionally drinkable IS, almost surprisingly so. Even at 9.9%, itís not knocking me over the head with booze, not even halfway into this bomber, the integration is so perfect, it seems. Flavor never ends, and stews on the palate for nearly an eternity, for as long as it takes to enjoy this beer, which might be forever. Were I a Coloradan, Iíd stock up severely on this brew, and as Iím not, I can only lay back and enjoy it just this once! Like a blissfully bewitching Butterfingers in the mouth, this one, and not about to overtake any in my Pantheon of Imperial Stouts, it admirably takes up the rear!"

Pours opaque black. Strong coffee, bakers chocolate, and cocoa aroma. Chocolate taste is dominant with nutty aftertaste. No fruity esters present. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz Bottle: Pours an almost black with a dark tan medium head. Some lacing is present. The aroma is drive by chocolate, coffee and roast. The taste is similar with chocolate and coffee dominating the flavor with a hint of hop bitterness and alcohol on the finish. The palate is good but not as solid as I want. This is a very good IS and more drinkable every day than the Oak Aged. My sample was at least a couple of years old so it has had time to mellow.

mmm mmm coffee and alcohol in the nose. Pours out a nice dark black. The head is a delightful dark brown. Taste of coffee and chocolate. It has a fairly high alcohol percent, but it covers it up very well. I like this stout a great deal.

Bottled August 07. Perhaps the beer was a bit past its best. I was really expecting something exciting, but the bottle poured with very litle carbonation and no discernable head. Very darK and particularly bitter with some coffee notes. I enjoyed this but nothing as much as I had anticipated.

pours like used motor oil producing a very tall milk chocolate colored head that was very thick and slow to fall. the body is black with no light penetration at all. the aromas are are like dark roasted coffee, roasted dark malts, bitter chocolate and the body has produced some thick lacing all around the glass. it is full body and very thick with a creamy smooth mouth feel that felt like heavy silk flowing across my tongue. i taste dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, some bittering hops, some vanilla and heavy cream. it finishes very smooth and leaves an aftertaste that was subtle and light but tasted like it started. great beer and i purchased it in a 12ounce bottle.
