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).

Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2011
Draft at the Euston Tap. Pours jet black, you know, oily with a brown, dense head. Holds a piercing, intense mocha aroma, lots of roast. Just a ridiculously intense flavor. Quite sweet, but the sweetness is overpowered but the super roast, tobacco, charred malts, chocolate syrup and scorched trees. Full in body with average carbonation. Lots of alcohol warmth on the finish, more dark mocha than any human could possibly want, tobacco, oil, light minerality, some stinging chocolate, coffee beans, lingering bitter coffee grounds. Really, super intense. Great beer.

argo0 (11653) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 27, 2004
(2003 Bomber) Small dark brown head atop a motor oil body. Aroma is sweet, big malty, coffee, citrus hops, some vinous, some alcohol. Taste is medium sweet, coffee, grapefruit, some vinous. Finishes with a medium alcohol warming/burn. Big body. No question they put shitloads of malt and hops in this one -- beautiful beer.

brokensail (11612) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Pours black in color with a tan head. Nose is heavy on the roasted malt with lots of coffee, licorice, and dark chocolate. Still nicely sweet with some toffee aromas. A mild hoppiness to it as well. A touch of bitterness on the palate from all the roast. Good chocolate, coffee, and roast flavors to it. Mild to moderate sweetness of toffee, molasses, licorice, and chocolate. A bit of cocoa powder bitterness to it.

bhensonb (11533) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Aroma of dark roasted malt, backed by coffee and chocolate. Starts with a very strong, almost licorice, flavor. Ok, this could be "massive, roasty". I think there’s coffee. This is so massive that the chocolate gets hidden for the most part. It does not finish all that dry, and the hop is almost overcome by the toasted malt. That massive, roasty seems to be keeping the hop out of my taste profiling. There is bitter in the finish, but I’m not convinced it’s hop. Strong stuff. If there are stoutheads, this should work for them. Note: after some passage of time, I actually think I find grapefruit. Still this is dark roasted stuff.

Bottle. Ok, this is truly embarrasing. I made alot of notes about the beer, only to waste them in the laundry later on. So I will give it a try without the notes. Black color, nice big lasting brown head. Great roasted aroma with tar, chocolate, cocoa, licorice and lots of really bitter hops. Flavor is as raosted and bitter, chocolate, licorice, tar and cocoa. Lovely bitterness and a wonderful body. I promise to save my notes next time I try this beer...

Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
[my 100th american rating]
Pitch black pour with a rather small creamy brown head. Powerful aroma, roasted, burnt caramel, a little coffe and much dark chocolate - perhaps cocoa. Extremely creamy and full mouthfeel. Flavour is slightly oaky (even if this is not the oak-aged one), lots of chocolate, a little warming viniousness, some vanilla and lots of roasted toffee. A powewrful presence of hops in the finish.
