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).

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.

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

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.

performula (148) - Heart of the Rockies, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2007
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.

xibalba89 (147) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Pours black with a brown, frothy head. The aroma is full of bitter hops and coffee... very heavy. The flavor is more of the same... tons of coffee, bitter hops and hints of chocolate and caramel. I would like to sample this side by side with JavaStout... to my memory, they taste the same. Very creamy and heavy. Not quite as sweet as I prefer my stouts, but a really good beer regardless.

DiabolikDUB (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Poured from Bottle into Snifter glass. Pours a smooth dense black with a creamy mocha colored head that very slowly dissolves into a good layer around the glass. The aroma is mostly coffee bean with some roasted malts. The flavor is sweet chocolate upfront accompanied by some coffee, toffee, caramel and finishes with a soft slightly dry bitterness. Its a full bodied beer and has a velvet-like creaminess. Very nicely balanced Imperial Stout that isnít too bitter and isnít too sweet. Nice complex palate, delicious beer.

Sofajoern (146) - DENMARK - DEC 30, 2005
Truly dark colour with a very, very good looking beige almost brown head, that lasted very well. Looked spectacular in my regular tasting glass (bowl type glass). Aroma with notes of coffee, licorice, and something I canít quite place but think is coriander. Very full, dark flavour with everything from the aroma in rich amounts as well as an interesting complexity of other flavours (I suspect itís one of those beers in wich everybodycan find different flavours). Lasting bitter, hoppy aftertaste, that I liked, but realise might scare some people off (itís rather agressive after all). One of the best stouts Iíve had.

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.

Looking back on old notes. Drank this one shared by my boss at work while on the clock. Thanks Mike! Quarter inch off white head. Nose is dark fruit and sugar. Taste is heavy malt and mocha. Good solid beer from great divide.

rdawson321 (145) - USA - DEC 6, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2006 Pours like oil with a thick lasting head. Aroma fills the room like freshly brewed coffee. Exceptionally complex, you need the full 22 oz bottle to find everything. Rather high ABV is masked very well (until you try to stand up). Super heavy and super hoppy, notes of chocolate, caramel, smoke, toffee, and brown sugar. Very smooth, very thick, very good. Expensive brew, but worth every penny.
