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 660 ml
Dark brown almost tar black. Brown creamy head on top.
Smooth , rich juicy malt. Big well roasted grains. The bitter darkness is the train . Aroma of Polish Baltic with tons of hops.
Full bodied ale , yet not heavy. Clean , smooth work lovely potency. Looking for big , bold strong ale look no further. You got all: hops, roasted malts , clean alcohol. This is a must try for any beer lover.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2009 12oz bottle. With the oak aged version being one of my favorite beers, I was interested in how the normal one compares. The appearance and aroma are identical, from what I remember. Pours dark, thick black with a small bubbly brown head. Chocolate, hops, malts in the aroma. Quite pleasant. Taste is thick, flavorful chocolate. I can tell a slight different in taste between this and the oak aged, which is a little more complex. This is still amazing though.

22oz bomber. is there any other way to have a beer than, after pouring a glass, knowing you have a nice little refill at the bottom of the glass? here i have a thick molasses-esque hue with a foamy and glistening cargo-brown head. sticking my nose in this beer couldnt have been more appetizing. simply from the aromas i gathered its a creamy thick stout with multiple layers of complexity that could surface with the right audience. at the forefront there are thick caramel malts, as well as creamy bittersweet chocolate. peeling back a layer, theres a mily element that mixes with nature; spruce, pine, and dirty earth. and on the tail end, theres a pleasant, though faint, island fruit (mango, passion fruit, starfruit) aroma. the taste leaves me taken aback. perhaps on the top 3 of best impy stouts ive ever had a chance to experience. everything that is in the aroma is also present in the taste. In addition, the pine blends with a touch of oak and molasses, and finishes rather dry (for a stout) and complemented by the nicities of chill spice. though a stout, not as heavy as i would have originally thought. the hops are definitely well configured into the beer as well, as its not overly hopped but also very detectable, even to the younest of palates. the mouthfeel increases Yetis drinkability, but be forwarned...its a high alc. possibly a perfect stout.

nearbeer (5297) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 8, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2009 22 oz bottle dispensed in quart mason jar. Completely opaque black liquid with one finger, large-bubbled, dark brown head which quickly disappears. Aroma is molasses, chocolate smoke and light metallic hops reminiscent of some English bitters. Initial taste is sweet malty, soapy with tingly pine hop finish way past the end. Further tasting has more hops (Cascade?) on the front. Full-body is smooth and roasty-dry. Strange brew; seemed too sweet at first, now seemed more hoppy toward the middle, and back to the too-sweet malt syrup-from-a-can-taste at the end. Alcohol is well hidden. Only complaint is the bottle needs a swing-top; definitely need to share this one, as the beer is way too sweet (and strong) to drink a 22 oz by yourself, unless you have about 3-4 hours to kill. I made a 7% ABV doppelbock (which I thought was too sweet) that tastes similar to this one! This one seems a bit overrated.

cathcacr (647) - Oregon, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Pretty standard for a top-notch Impy. Heavy roasted-cocoa aroma, densely flavored. Not much head to speak of, actually. Finishes just fine with the usual Impy alcohol sting somewhere back there.

BuckeyeBoy (7354) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2007
22oz Bottle Pours out a nice ink black topped with a Great tan head. Very nice aroma of roast, vanilla and some chocolate. The tast is pretty good as well, a little sweet and some of that 9.5% comes in.

oakbluff (447) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 2, 2007
Pours out the expected pitch black. Creamy milk chocolate head with quite a lot of lacing. Aroma is sweet chocolate malt. Flavour backs up the aroma- chocolate, some licorice, sweet toffee, finished off by a hoppy dry finish. Thick and luxurious. Less hoppy than expected, although I have been sitting on this bottle for over six months. The roasted malts were actually subdued. I enjoyed the oak aged version slightly more as it has more complexity and I enjoy the vanilla notes in it. Still this is an excellent impy stout from one of my favourite breweries.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 2, 2007
Bottle. Poured a dark brown-black, with creamy light brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and some hops. Mouthfeel was not that great to me, but still ok. Initially the flavor was dominated by coffee and a bitterness; eventually gave way to a sweet chocolate and light burnt flavor. Ok for the style for me.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAR 2, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and hops. Flavor is different than other imperial stouts. Flavor is a mixture of coffee, hop bitterness, sweet chocolate, and maybe some fruit. It became a little better tasting as I drank it.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2007
Bomber bottle from BOTW, shared with Ben, served almost cold in a snifter. FE 24/07

App.: Deep brown-black, small mocha head. Aroma: Dark dried fruits, molasses, wet spent grain which comes off almost meaty, like dried cat food (bizarre!), sweet, chocolate and cacao. Palate: Thick full body, medium carbonation, a touch astringent. Flav.: Wow, this is huge. Beautiful milk chocolate, molasses, coffee, cacao, dark fruits, plenty of American hops, sweet, yet bitter, yet salty. Thick and mouth-coating. Alcohol is well-hidden. What a monster!.

Other than the strange lauter-tun-full-of-Meow-Mix notes, this is fabulous.
