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).

(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.

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.

Christian (10779) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2006
UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 Black with a lasting brown head. Rich and complex aroma of chocolate, licorice, port, dried fruit. Sweet flavour with all kinds of burned notes, followed by a solid hop bitterness.

Pinball (10607) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2008
draft. one of the best stou’ts i’ve tasted. well balanced, looks great, tastes great - aftertaste keeps balanced, no weird notes to distract you from the goodies. The only letdown was a faint aroma i couldn´t really pick up.

bhensonb (10352) - 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.

Black stout with thick brown head. Aroma has chocolate, liquerice, coffee and roasted malt. Same goes for the flavor. Ends bitter. Could do with some oak agening ;-)

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle bought @ Ølkonsortiet, Aalborg. Pours a thick black colour with a small brown head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate and some alcohol. Great mouthfeel. The flavour is quite sweet with roasted malt and caramel, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, alcohol and bit of smoke. Long lasting sweet roasty finish. Great brew but I do prefer the oak aged version.
