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).

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.

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.

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass, pour’s thick and black with a nice brown head, lotsa lacing on the glass. The toasty aroma was noticeable upfront. Flavors of coffee, caramel, cocoa. This is a huge beer, full bodied, thick and chewy without a lot carbonation. This thing lasts! I will hope to find a BA version of this somewhere down the road. Until that happens, I will be hard pressed to find something better. WOW!

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.

Pours brownish black with a tan head. Burnt, roasted and caramelized. But also rich, creamy and chocolatey.

FatTony (177) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2008
12 ounce bottle- poured out a thick tar black. The head was an incredibly thick caramel brown and lasted until the last mouthful. Aroma was very chocolatey and sweet. First impression was that this was one of the smoothest stouts I had ever tried, texture was pure silk in the mouth. Great toffee flavor with a hint of black coffee, but was in no way sweet. Excellent, really enjoyed it.

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.
