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).

A little lighter in color than most imperial stouts. Pretty roasty in flavor. Good beer, but ive had better imperial stouts.

Good Lord!! Humongous beer. Probably an average 12 pack’s worth of hops and malt in a single pint-six bottle. The color of (over)used moter oil. Has a significant lasting head. Lot’s of licorice in the nose but overpowered by malt. Tastes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate . Extremely thick. Maybe have been psychological, but my glass felt kinda heavier than normal when full. ;) I bet there are 500 calories in a bottle of this stuff. The three main tastes are MALT, HOPS AND alcohol. Very generously hopped. I had to drink this slowly. Warms up very very nicely. Hard hitting hops finish. The stout for hopheads.

BottleHound (156) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 6, 2015
330 ml bottle. Inc black color with small brown head. Aroma with lots of chocolate, pine and coffee. Malty, quite dry, well balanced flavour. Surprisingly long aftertaste.

RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - OCT 30, 2006
Poured a thick, black pool of oil with an insubstantial, cardboard-colored head. Very pleasant aroma; malts, chocolate cake, and perhaps some citrusy hints. The flavor is malts and bitter chocolate and then BAM! Hops out the wazoo...to my palate, waaaay to much hops and it seriously throws off the balance of taste. As the mug warms, the hop assault is diminished somewhat by sweet aftertastes. The high alcohol content is masked well, but hell, you could hide a dead salmon under that blanket of hops. It’s not bad by any means, but not my idea of a great imperial stout.

Black with a nice beige head. Fantastic aroma of chocolate, roasted malts. Massive flavor.. roasted malts, chocolate, hops, with some alcohol warmth. Powerful beer.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2005
Bottle. Aromas of blackness; coffee, tar, chocolate. Citrus elements from American hops also. Flavour is very chocolatey and well-roasted coffee-like. On the palate this beer is massive and thick. Great beer, but the large bottle size is actually a bit too much if you’re not sharing.

unibaren (154) - 8000 Århus C, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005
Roasted coffee, licourice, dark chocolate and caramel is clearly detectable in the powerfull yet plesant aroma. Pitch black, creamy with a nice brown head that (like in all Great Divide beers) clings to he inside of the glass. The flavour is much like any strong stout but the amount of hops is much greater then I am used to in a stout - and maybe a little to much for me. The 9,5% alcohol is totally hidden by all the other flavours

DrewTaylor (154) - Michigan, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Pours dark black-brown with a little craemy dark head. Lingering aroma of coffee. Evident coffee and burnt chocolate to the taste, with hints of a woodyness. Lots of hops, complex palate, yet very well balanced. Great Imperial stout.

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.

dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Pours black with a frothy mocha head. Cocoa and coffee in the nose. Full bodied with flavors of chocolate and burnt espresso bean. More hops than you would expect from the style, but very good.
