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 (10675) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (10382) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Harziger Malzgeruch. Tief herb-malziger Antrunk, schnell stellt sich eine angenehme und passende Bitternote ein. Sehr semig, karamellig, betont harmonisch, hintergründig ist der Alkohol erkennbar. Ausgewogen, stark. Test vom 19.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,11,13,9,12 - 11,85

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 (10291) - 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.

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...

Bottled Maverick Imp. 2003: Pitch black coloured. Huge brown long lasting head. Impressive. Coffee, roastyness, tart, malt and cocoa in the aroma. Really makes me want to sniff the liquid up in the nose. Creamy, soft and smooth mouthfeel. Coffee, chocolate, liqouorice, malt, hops and some delightfull sweetness in the flavour. This is liquid for the gods. Ends up in a balanced roasty bitterness in the end that makes you fly away on a sky. Totally addictive brew. For me this was the top runner of the nights tasting including several top notch Belgian and American brews. Thanks to Raindog for sending this.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2007
This is a truly pitch black beer with a huge, delicious, creamy and brown head. The aroma has notes of coffee, dark roasted malt and caramel. The flavour is fantastic!! It has loads o dark roasted malt, hops and before the big hoppy symphony closes the ball, there are a lot of notes: Sweetness, caramel, coffee, nougat, licorice and chocolate. It’s very complex and exciting and worthy of a high score...!
