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).

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 28, 2010
33 cl bottle. Very dark brown, medium dark brown head that settles quickly. Great lacing. Aroma of Hershey bar and roasted coffee. Taste is over roasted coffee beans and bitter cocoa. Very thick, almost chewy. OK, but a bit overpowering.

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

Maria (9963) - 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...!

brokensail (9940) - Orange County, 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.

Leighton (9848) - 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.

bierkoning (9826) - 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.
