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).

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.

I truly love this beer! Being from Colorado I am extremely proud of Great Divide for offering such an amazing beer (well, all of their beers are pretty amazing if you ask me) Anyways, this beer is motor-oil thick. Laces up nicely, pours extremely dark. Very nice malty flavors with chocolate and dark fruits such as figs and raisons. Enough bitter in here to keep the malts in check, but nothing in this beer seems overwhelming. I am always amazed when I have this beer, and i’ve had it hundreds of times (lucky Old Chicago right near my house sells the oak aged version of this on tap! YUM!)

I had to exclaim that "this beer is awesome!" at least three times while drinking the Yeti Imperial Stout (bomber). It was an absolutely beautiful pour (opaque brown-black with a solid tan-brown head). The taste was not overbearing in any direction as a result of the almost perfect balance between the hops, roast, coffee, caramel, and (dare I say Godiva) chocolate flavors. I shared with a friend, and he admitted that this was his favorite imperial stout; I might be willing to agree with him. The Yeti Imperial Stout is an absolutely amazing beer, damn tasty and substantial (substantial as in 9.5% ABV).

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2007
Tasted at the breck beer fest. Liquid chocolate, residual tar, and a little coffee in the finish. Mellow bitterness, balanced and strong. Not quite as refined as the oak aged but still an amazing stout.

bmanning (142) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Pours black with a thick, foamy brown head. Heavy chcolate aroma (smells so much like chcolate milk) along with toffee, caramel, coffee, hazelnut, and even floral and citrusy hops. Extremely thick and complex taste with lots of chocolate and espresso. Excellent balance between sweetness and bitterness. There is also a huge hops taste that leaves citrus and pine flavors on the palate. This is very creamy for a stout and it goes down ultra smooth with a dry hoppy bitter finish. Overall this is an incredible stout, one of my favorites - can’t wait to try the oak-aged version.

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Pours thick, syrupy and black with a molasses colored head. Aromas of brown sugar, toast, and raisins with no detectable hop bouquet. Huge flavors of roasted malt and coffee, with a hint molasses and citrus hops. Substantial alcohol warmth. Very full body with a lip-smacking quality. Long hoppy finish.

Pours like motor oil. Aroma is of strong chocolate, alcohol, vanilla, raisin. Flavor is very velvety smooth with a nice roasted coffee and chocolate finish. Mouthfeel is very full rich and bold. Excellent beer.

From the bottle this beer pours thick black with a small creamy brown head. Nice smokey malt aroma with waves of chocolate. Plenty of roasted malt, caramel, a burned wood character and a potent bitter hop finish with notes of juniper berry. Fairly full swallow with a tinge of alcohol tickling the throat. This brew lives up to its reputation and I am glad that it is finally available in Georgia. I am also quite happy I have another bottle in the chill.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Bold, black and beautiful... while the oak aged gets the nod as one of the best IS in this world, this one is no slouch and is blissfully palatable... creamy goodness, and black chocolate coffee heaven waits the lips of the recipient.
