COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Divides 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, Yetis hop profile reveals a slightly citrusy, piney, and wonderfully dry hoppy finish. 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

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.

Big thanks to Dansting for this baby. Ive been waiting awhile to get the regular Yeti, as its been awhile since I had the BA version. Appearance is jet black with some light brown highlights on the edges of the glass (gotta hold it up to a pretty bright light) with a thick creamy dark tan head with some serious staying power (head almost looked like something off a cappuccino). Aroma was dark chocolate, molasses, slight coffee notes and some undercover citrus hops. It would have gotten high marks but the aroma was a little tame for my liking. Flavor were pretty much the same as the nose with a little more emphasis on the hops. The creamy smoothness of this beer is just incredible. Overall, an excellent beer but I think I like the BA version a bit better. It carries just more complexity for me.

Black as a moonless night. Brown head. Sweet with hints of coffee, wood, chocolate and a nice bitter finish. Not as much vanilla as the oak aged, but that makes sense.

I;ve been waiting a long time for this one, and I was not dissapointed, big brown head, black body, sweet syrupy rasted nose, brilliant chocolate flavor, woody mocha smoke, roasty, lingering dry and warming finish

22oz bomber served in a shaker. Pours jet black, like oil, black as night. HUGE brown head, fizzy with tons of bubbles. Leaves some nice lacing on the glass as well. Impressive looking, intimidating and inviting, just like an Imp Stout should be. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted/charred malts, hops, earthiness. Creamy, full roast on the fore of the tongue. Malts and toffee dominate the back of the tongue. Finish is bitter hops, coffee, dark bitter chocolate and some citrus notes. This is a BIG beer. Wow. A new favorite of mine.

Very pleased with this beer. Not as much as I was with the Oak Aged edition, but still a magnificent beer. Ink black, pours a nice and thick beer. The taste is definitely roasted coffee. The coffee taste is not accompanied by that burnt wood taste as the Oak Aged is. Also, there are not any sweet notes that I can really taste. I smell the sweet more than I taste it. I like this beer and it deserves a 99. Great job, Great Divide Brewery.

Bottle. 2005. Pours a pitch black body with a large brown-mocha head. Smells of heavy chocolate, green hops, toffee, and lots of resinous fruity hops. Tastes quite hoppy, and very flavourful by that account. Thick and chewy roasted malts with tame alcohol lingering. Immensly palatable.

750 Bottle. Tulip Glass. Black. Aroma is almost all chocolate and roasted malts. The hops are plentiful and make their entrance upon tasting. However the vanilla, chocolate, and coffee notes make this a sweet beer. The bitterness and alcohol come in at the finnish. Body is full, thick, and flat. Enjoyable.
