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).

Thick and black. As full-bodied a beer as I’ve come across. A very hoppy stout, it’s almost an IPA. Good and strong. Dry burnt finish.

Bottle. First off let me say state this: this is one of the most beautiful beers I’ve ever seen. It pours a completely opaque black. I held this right up to a lamp and wasn’t able to get any light through it. The head is very big but not Duvel big, super thick and creamy (think latte’), and milk chocolate brown. And it hangs around basically forever. Like 3 years or something. Aroma starts to give hists of this one’s odd nature: cream, lots of brown sugar, and...hoppy citrus? Yup. So...the flavor. Well, right off the bat it sorta punches you in the face with roasted coffee malts and bitter dark chocolate, piles of brown sugar. Then, well, you have the hops and frankly, this is where the beer lost me. The distinctly non floral bitterness that felt like some one had dumped some of their IPA in my stout. And alcohol. This beer does a poor job hiding its high gravity, which of course adds to the harshness. Personally, I did not find this anywhere near as well balanced as other premium imperials (namely Storm King, Rasputin). Finishes with alcohol, coffee, and and a weird sweet bitterness. By far the worst thing about this beer is the feel. At first it is ok, thick like a stout should be. But then, well, it has this horrible bottom-of-the-coffee pot chalkiness that made me cringe. Its like I chewed some Tums and washed it down with a swig of reheated day old coffee. Blarg. So the moral of the story is that this beer gave me a great first impression, and then consistently let me down there afterward. I had problems even finishing it. I can see why some like it, as American beer makers and drinkers seem to be obsessed with hops and the number of IBUs. Anywho, this one was frankly not for me.

Unibonger (163) - Mount Shasta, California, USA - JUL 17, 2010
22oz. Pours a very insanely deep black, brown thin head with very good retention, decent amount of lacing. Smells slightly of cherry, strong roast grain, and coffee. Very grainy flavor, with strong roast, some of the cherry hints. Low carbonation, big bold body, slightly slick texture.

Schwarz mit dunkelbraunem enormem Schaum. Röstmalzaromen Kaffe, dunkle Shokolade, etwas Melasse, Tabak, Holz. Vollmundig und cremig, malzig: Kaffee, Schokolade, leichte Süsse, und dann massive Bittere die im Abgang bleibt, fast ölig. Sehr gut.

AlKHall (161) - West Hartford, Connecticut, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Very dark and thick - like black tar. has all the roasted fmalt, coffee, chocolate lavors of a stout plus the hint of dark fruit like grapes. Overall -- an excellent beer!

orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 not the most pleasant stout, but what can you expect from 75 ibu (are you man enough?). The head disapears, flavor is comlex as well as the aroma. I enjoyed it with a brownie.

Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2005
Poured into a snifter, large tark tan head, aroma of sweet chocolate and toffee. Taste of roasty malts, chocoalte and coffee, more hop bitterness than most imperials. Apart from the hop bitterness, this is not as intense of a brew as expected.

texasbartender (160) - Sugarland, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2008
The beer pours a deep black with a thick brown creamy head that has great lacing. The nose is a mix of roasted malts, bitter sweet chocolate and coffee. The taste is a deep rich mix of roasted malts, burnt sugar, bitter chocolate and dark fruit. The mouth feel is a lot of carbonation on the tip of the tongue and a watery mouth feel in the middle, The finish is a light bitterness that is medium lasting. Goes great we smoked cheddar.

Drank a 12 ounce single. I’d never seen it before but I’ve had the Oak Aged Yeti on several occasions. This beer was a bit more aggressive, not as rich. I expected it to be very similar but it was fairly different. None the less, a very good Imperial Stout. Not as smooth as the Oak Aged, but still, an aggressive brew.
