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: NOV 5, 2010 Bottled. Jet black, even more black, and topped by a creamy tan head. Coffee, hops and hints of chocolate in the aroma. The flavor has a lot of sweetness and there’s roasted malt and coffee. Full-bodied and dry, with a finish of sweetness, alochol and some chocolate. The promised bitterness is well hidden, but that’s ok. This is a really nice beer, but if I could choose, I would go for the oak aged version. Rating: 8-5-7-4-16-4.0. 060704

Bottle at Patricks. It pours a pitch black, oily body and a small, dense, dark tan head. The aroma is intense and lovely. Licorice, molasses, some ashtray and quite roasted. Nicely hopped too, citrusy and piney. Well hidden alcohol. It’s full-bodied and oily, slightly warming. The flavor is much like the aroma. Lots of darkness and with a bitterness level suited for the beer. Sweet and burnt. Really lasting finish, a little too warming. A lovely beer, although not very well suited as the first beer after work. 101105

Opaque black, creamy small expresso head. Flowery hops in the nose. Lots of licorice and hops. Long roasted licorice flavor in the aftertaste.

brokensail (16057) - 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.

Oakes (15806) - 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.

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 (15152) - 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.

jtclockwork (14999) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Bottle. Pours oily black with dark brown head. Nose of chocolate , licorice, burnt malts, coffee and vanilla. Taste of vanilla beans, rich dark chocolate, licorice, burnt coffee and lightly smoked malts. Probably one of the best imperial stouts for the money (this and Expedition).

mcberko (14678) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours deep black with the darkest head I’ve ever seen. Aroma of dark espresso, roasted malt, chocolate, nuts and burnt caramel. Extremely complex flavour of espresso, chocolate, roasted malt, with an intensely smooth and rich palate, ends on an espresso note. What an amazing stout!
