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).

brokensail (15468) - Dublin, 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.

When you pours this you quickly smell and see that this is not your average brewed stout. This one has characther. Thick black with brown head. Strong chocolate and coffee notes. Filling in the mouth. The finish is lasting and pleasant bitter. WAUW! (Best imperial stout ive tasted to date)

Theis (14977) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2006
Bottle. A lot more squeezing than the oaked version, not so sweet. Still black with a brown head. Smell: coffee, chokolade. Taste chokolade, strong hop, roast malts, coffee. Again the taste of undesolved chokoladepowder, this dry chokolade flavour.

Oakes (14975) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2005 Black with dark brown head. Coffeeish, slightly chocolatey aroma. Stingy alcohol taste but this is more than countered by chocolatey, lightly coffeeish malts. Hop balance is noticeable, but not aromatic. Straightforward, tasty strong stout...the hop bitterness and black patent has me thinking a bit of McAuslan, but with more alcohol.

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.
