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).

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!"

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.

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.

peter48er (180) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2009
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.

kwerikson (178) - burlington, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2010
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.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - APR 5, 2006
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.
