Great Divideís 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, Yetiís hop profile reveals a slightly citrusy, piney, and wonderfully dry hoppy finish. 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

jtclockwork (13269) - , 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).

argo0 (12856) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 27, 2004
(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.

FatPhil (12779) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 12, 2008
355ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Black, brief tan head. Sweet, almost-chocolatey roasted malt aroma; some touch of hops just breaks through. Smooth palate, gentle carbonation. Quite a punch of burntness, quite charcoaly, and almost astringently bitter. The hops balance that interestingly with an almost sherbetty and bitter orange-zest zing. Becomes a bit sludgier and slimier in the mouth as it warms, makes me wonder if Iíll need a spoon by the time I get to the bottom. Rather lacking in subtlety, but it obviously wasnít designed for subtlety (I donít honestly think most of the Colorado brewers can do subtle, even if they tried). Finish is burnt, piney, and a touch metallic. And sticky. Pretty OK sipper, but not one Iíd want any volume of. Alcohol quite bold, but surrounded by malts and hops it doesnít jump out as being excessively boozy, just very big. Oak age it for the win.

imdownthepub (12684) - 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 (12668) - 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.

(Bottle) Pours a black, opaque, with a large creamy brown head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Full body, creamy texture, and bitter finish. Flavors of alcohol, roasted malt and a hiont of caramel. Soft on the tongue.

Christian (12553) - 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.

mcberko (12416) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours deep black with the darkest head Iíve 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!
