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).

It’s a great beer and you can tell that from the other ratings, perosnally I don’t think they got the hopping right. It’s really hard to do an imperial stout with a hoppy finish right. ,I feel like I’ve only tasted it once. I felt like this beer’s specific hop profile detracted from the core qualities of the imperial stout style. But I will say it is a complex beer worthy of tasting and making one’s own mind up. Sure seems like everyone else likes it.

Bottle to glass. Dark black pour with small tan head. Lots of chocolate and coffee on the nose as well as a whole lot of roasty goodness. A little bit of pine also. Heavy bodied with a little bit of bitterness on the finish. A very good beer. Yeti is always a good thing to have in your fridge.

12oz Bottle. Arroma off coffee and faint resin. The taste is malty and roasty with lots of coffee and nutty undertones with a fairly noticeable citrus and pine hop finish. Fairly Good Stuff.

Opaque black pour with a nice two finger creamy mocha colored head, good retention & lacing, great appearance. Aroma is of dark chocolate and coffee. Flavor is roasted malt, finishes with the dark chocolate and a bitterness from the hops. Nicely balanced. A little alcohol at the end. Low carbonation and heavy on the tongue. Good finish, good beer overall. Flavors really come out as the beer warms up.
