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).

Draft. My new all-time favorite beer. I will have to re-calibrate my ratings, to accommodate this beer. A dense, sweet, complex mixture of coffee, chocolate, and malt flavor. Intense flavors. Slightly astringent finish, buffered by the overriding sweet flavors and aromas. Will give a 4.9 overall rating, to accommodate an as-yet un-tasted more perfect beer.

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.

Pours a dark opaque black with a dark brown head. When they said it was an onslaught on the senses they weren’t 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 didn’t get it. It’s a little more hoppy than you would think a imperial stout to be. One of my all-time favorites. Thank you, Great Divide.

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.

12 oz. bottle into snifter. Pours almost black with a finger or so of tan head. Aroma is huge with roasted malts and a little bitter chocolate. The flavor is chocolatey with a touch of coffee and dried fruits that finishes with a wonderful caramel flavor that lingers on the palate. Yum.

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 it’s 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 inky color with slight tan head. Smells of toffee and caramel and tastes like roasted chocolate malt. Extremely well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours nearly black. Not a lot of carbonation. Smells like alcohol more than chocolate. The proof is in the pudding. Chocolate, coffee, and roast flavors. Very smooth slick texture once swallowed. Nice lasting finish, bitter at the end.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 Guiness on steriods. Dark. Rich. Strong charred flavor. Complex flavor. A bit much for regular drinking, but I nice treat every now and again.
