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).

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.

Pinball (11335) - 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.

imdownthepub (11291) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011
On tap at The Euston Tap, Euston, London. Black with tan head. Full on roasty, burnt, sweet, caramel / toffee flavours. Overwhelming on the palate, tricky to enjoy in a pub like this would probably be better as a fireside warmer. Bitter finish.

Ratman197 (11097) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2005
This was a bottle of 2003 Maverick [the origanal name before Yeti] Imperial Stout I had in my cellar. Pours a dark opaque black with a big dark brown head that really hangs in there. Aromas of faint smoke, coffee, and chocolate.It has a smooth rich mouthfeel. Rich roast malt, and coffee flavors dominate with some chocolate and carmel. The bitterness has really dropped out from when it was fresh.

bierkoning (11044) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2007
Bottle. Almost opague, dark head. Licorice and mango in the aroma. Sweet and full bodied. Licorice and roastflavor, immediately followed by loads of fresh earthy and flowery hops. Citrus in the far background. There is a difference in character between the oak aged and the "plain" version. The oak version is perhaps more complex, the "plain" version has more hop caharacter and a more pronounced aroma. The quality in both cases is outstanding.
