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.

Bottle, written in marker on cap is "03/4". pours black with beautiful brown head. aroma is awesome and reminds of expedition/speedway. Flavor is just as it smells though it is not as thick/chewy as the afformentioned brews. Not thin by a longshot , but thin for the expectations the aroma set up. I taste choc, roasted malts, a bit of soy sauce which is not unpleasant.

Bottle. Pours black with dark brown head. Aroma is roasty and smokey. I found this beer to be a bit one dimensional and a bit thin/watery. I drank this after I had an expedition stout and it just seemed like a much less substantial beer. It’s good,but I wasn’t impressed.

12 ounce bottle. I have had Great Divides Oak Aged Imperial Stout so I was very excited to try this brew. Pours a completely opaque black with a small brown head. The pour reminded me of the consistancy of motor oil. The aroma was very complex with hints of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, and hops. The taste followed the same pattern as the aromas with a lot of the complex flavors coming out as the beer warmed. It did finish a bit bitter but was a very enjoyable experience. I would seek this one out again!

Dark oily pour, body is almost black with a slightly maroon brown head. Rich sweet malty aroma with some caramel and some dark fruit, noticing some fig. Body is thick with an initial carbonation. Initial bitterness, sweet and malty with some floral hop character. Slightly grassy behind the rich malt. Finishes out with a tasty bitterness. A great thick imperial stout, a great intro to Great Divide.

22oz bottle. Nice thick pour; completely opaque with foamy brown head that leaves nice halo and some patches. Aroma is a little subtle, but nice: chocolate, some roastiness, some booze. Hops definitely overwhelm the chocolate sweetness more than I would prefer; alcohol taste is definitely there, along with some nice warming at the end. Sticky and viscous, the body of this beer is about all you can ask for. Finish is long, sweet, and delicious.

Den här snömansölen är fantastisk. Hårdrostad malt avvägd med distinkt humle. Smaken är minst sagt kraftfull och eftersmaken lång. Finns alltid i mitt "stash"

Overall a really good stout, that I have had numerous different times. But now that it is sold in four packs...I have been enjoying it a lot more. I recently had a Jan. 2007 bottle, and even while sooo fresh this beer was still great. Lots of coffee and chocolate with some caramel and toffee coming through towards the end of the flavor profile. The aroma is very solid with lots of roastiness and some coffee and a little bit of chocolate. A really good beer.

Delicious! Great head, good smelling dark stout. Poured like a thin oil. A new favorite imperial stout. I like Stone’s better, but this is a very close second. I want another.
