The Yeti in all its forms is my all time favorite Imperial Stout. I consider myself lucky to share the planet with its greatness. The Espresso just adds another layer of depth to this wiley creature. I was lucky enough to taste some of the first test batches at the Great Divide tasting room and I’m very impressed with Bryan and crew’s ability to capture the magic in a bottle. Don’t fear the yeti. Ride the snake. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2009
OMG! Da BOMB! Top of the line man. Everything is perfect. Aroma, color, head job, all superb and expressive. The mouthfeel is dazzling. Effers to malt ratio in balance. Huge and very strong. Not sweet at all. Just a sublimely balanced specimen summoned by all beer gods and shoved forefront. This one gets the Nobel prize in my book. Eat this with a chorizo and egg burro with a few Herdez jalapeños. chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Tap - union jacks - black pour with tan head. Aroma of coffee dominates. Flavor of coffee, licorice, malt, and some alcohol. Really good - flawless for a coffee type stout. Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - AUG 15, 2010
Tap at Mikkeller bar. Just when i thought i had been through enough beers to experience getting gobsmacked, i come across this one. I’ve tasted several great coffee stouts before, but this one takes the prize in my book. Poors opague black with a creamy dark brown head leaving lots of nice lacings, nice. The aroma, of course, holds a great deal of fresh grinded coffee beens, which is always nice. Along with it comes dried tobacco leaves with a hint of smoke, wood, vanilla and to top off all these masculine notes comes some underlying fruity milky chocolate which just feels so right in this. The flavor overwhelmed me. The coffee brings forth an awsome roasted bitterness accompagnied with a salty milky sweetness that runs rampant on your palate. The high abv makes it all the more powerfull and in the end i cant think of a singel flaw. Thanks! dengleberry (22) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Perfect Stout. Opaque. mmmm coffee stouts can be offered overpowered by the coffee. Yeti can handle the espresso roast and end up completely balanced.

I am giving this Stout a perfect score. WOW. The Espresso Flavor is so well balanced in this Stout. For the high ABV it was very smooth. Like the bottle says I could most Defiantly drink this with breakfast. ferit (176) - Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2012
+ De esspresso nasmaak is net even iets extra’s vergeleken met de
(normale) Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout
+ lekker dik bier, niet waterig
+ ruikt oud en volwassen
+ de kraag heeft een mooie kleur
+ 1 keer van de tap gedronken toen de tap bijna leeg was. Mijn collega’s vonden dit niet lekker maar ik vond de smaak nog intensiever
- Het nieuwe design is oer lelijk, het oude had een oude en speciale look.

What can be said poured darker than night. As said in most ratings lacing is very pronounced almost like a spider web of creamy milk like head, smell of chocolate and espresso assault your senses, dense chocolaty malt with bitter espresso hop finish very nice hopheadsbrew (142) - Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Chocolate colored foam. Pitch black. Roast malt and chocolate aroma. Thick mouthfeel. Very chocolatey. Coffee and bitter aftertaste. MountainG0AT (1) - California, USA - JUL 29, 2013 does not count
Exceptional character, mature yet naughty. It’s the veritable breakfast of champions.
