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).

Pours solid black with a two finger dark tan head that looks loosely bubbled from the side but very thick from the top. Taste of the foam is strong with roasted malt. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth with a lingering pleasant bitter aftertaste. Main tasting notes are caramel, burnt marshmallow and hints of coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

polo_marco (198) - milton, Vermont, USA - APR 30, 2016
Smells of super soft coffee and chocolate malts. Nice dark black in color. Super Rick dark chocolate flavor followed by coffee and dark roasted malts. Very nice flavor with the two combined. Beautiful full body with just the right amount of carbonation. The first beer from you guy and all I can say is love this brew. Nice work with this coffee stout wish it wasn’t so day but nice work.

Xevious (77) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2016
Bought at a specialty brew shop. Pours a surprisingly dark, almost ink like color with a small dark head. Smells of roasted nuts, chocolate and some malt. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, malt, roasted nuts and a hint of dark fruit. It has an oily chewy consistency that goes down very filling. Overall? Absolutely amazing! many people I have talked to say this is the best Imperial Stout they’ve had!

Alengrin (4078) - BELGIUM - APR 12, 2016
Great Divide’s acclaimed RIS, so far only tasted in its oaked version but now it’s time for the original. Creamy, lacing, stable, pale greyish beige head on top of a black beer with mahogany edges. Lovely, rich and flawless bouquet of cocoa, coffee grounds, vanilla, stewed beef, bayleaf, cappuccino, cured bacon, salmiak, some shoe polish, roasted pine nuts. Restrained, well-placed candied fig sweetishness in the mouth surrounded by a thick, beefy umami edge, softish carbo with very creamy, thick, oily mouthfeel as is to be expected from the style, thick bitter chocolate sauce, caramel and coffee-like roasted bitterness, mouth-filling, ensuring a long dry finish along with a spicy dosis of peppery hops and a glow of warm, whisky-like alcohol. Classic American impy in every sense, this completely lives up to is reputation, but then I admit to have a weakness for the style.

Nonshaugen (333) - Fetsund, NORWAY - APR 11, 2016
355 ml bottle. Jet black beer in the glass, thin mocca coloured head. Aroma is wonderfull, packed with dark chocolate, coffee, leather and tobacco smoke. Full bodied mouthfeel, thick, well carbonated and bitter. Flavours are plum, cherry, alcohol and loads of bitter chocolate and coffee. This is the final beer for the night, or at least it should be...

This is an absolute meal of a beer and it’s wonderful. Had it on tap and aromas of coffee and chocolate were practically jumping out of the glass. There’s a nice roastiness as well. Taste is big roasty coffee, chocolate and surprisingly not massively sweet. It’s a little dryer if that’s even a thing. The big win for this was the delicious coffee flavor. It’s a beast of a beer and definitely worth trying.

AdolfoCC (97) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 8, 2016
Servida en Snifter. APARIENCIA: De color completamente oscura, no pasa la luz a través de ella. Corona de espuma color marrón de burbuja algo abierta, un dedo y medio de altura y poca retención, un muy buen lacing en la copa. AROMA: mucho chocolate amargo, caramelo, café tostado, muy ligeras y discretas notas de lúpulo con notas de pino y el licor se percibe en nariz, pero no es agresivo. SABOR: ¡Wow! de entrada el amargor moderado, seguido de toneladas de chocolate amargo, toffee, caramelo, café y sus notas torrefactas, tabaco, queda un ligero gusto como pastel de chocolate; el retrogusto con amargor moderado y ligeras notas de lúpulo algo herbal y terroso, no llega a ser astringente, además de una sensación cálida del alcohol nada agresiva. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo pleno y baja carbonatación. RESUMEN; una excelente imperial stout de gran calidad.
