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).

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 22, 2007
22oz bottle: Pours totally opaque black with medium to large creamy dark brown/red head. Aroma is very chocolatey, creamy, bit of ash, cherry, honey. Flavor is malty, bit of ash, hints of bitter malts, touch of cherry and vanilla, with a balanced, silky finish, just on the sweet side. A very nice IS, I like it.

Thick pouring stout with a pleasant hoppy after taste. An easy description of its flavor is chocolate carmel and cascade hops.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Poured an oily, virtually opaque dark brown with a gorgeous two finger brown head. Great lacing. Alcohol is noted with the initial pour, but dissipates as this one opens up. Burnt wood comes through as does a hint of sweet caramel and bitter chocolate. Alcohol flavor is strong initially as well but it to gives way as this monster opens up. I was truly impressed with the way the 9.5% abv wasnt really noticed after this stout opens up. The flavor of burnt wood, coffee, caramel and some chocolate are balanced against a nice hoppy finish. Incredible mouthfeel in this full bodied, creamy/oily stout.

An excellent complex imperial stout. Pours a thick black color with a tan light head. It smells of chocolate and herby and hops. It tastes heavily of hops at first, with a heavy herb/chocolate/hops aftertaste. VERY flavorful. An excellent imperial stout thtat i highly recommend.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 The notorious Yeti. On tap at the Bocktown bar & grill in the Robinson shopping complex. Pours very black with a darker tan head. The head keeps holding on. Imperial stout is one of my least favorite styles so dont look for any super evaluation here. Sweet aroma that is typical of many imperial stouts. When you taste it, it has the impact of your good imp stouts. Definitely within the style. Deep roasty, charred wood and black coffee. The liquid does not seem to be as thick as other stouts Ive tasted. This brew does have some carbonation, something that is usually lacking in these stouts. A vicious malty/hoppy bitter astringent linger that really hangs with you for a long time after the last swallow. Bitter like medicine. I think this is what many stout lovers like about imp stouts, something Ill never get used to. I guess this is the thing that they consider creative personality. How can something that is so bitter be referred to as wonderful I dont know. The only reason I give this a rating that is as high as a 2 is that Im afraid I would be considered a troll, will not buy again. Yep, very similar to thirsty dogs siberian, bells exp and brooklyn choco. Yeti is probably a hair better. Not quite as bitter as lion stout. Normally I would stay away from IPA and imp stout, since I dont have enough beer experience to enjoy the style. I got this one as a gift from a friend. Id never buy it for myself, it is way too expensive. Ill sneak this rating in early in the morning so nobody will see it.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 Bomber. Pours near black with a medium head. Fair lacing and good retention/foam shapes. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, earthy and citrus hops. Taste is licorice, chocolate and coffee. Also flavor hops. Full bodied. Creamy/oily texture. Moderately sweet with a short, bitter finish.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a thick inky black color with a good 2" of deep brown head. Some spidery lacing. Nice roasted grains in the aroma. Strong roasted malt, coffee, toffee, and black cherry in the flavor. A delicious combination. Then, a solid hop bitterness is followed by an alcoholic aftertaste. Full bodied, softly carbonated, potent. In a word - splendid.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Courtesy of bditty187. Pours an absolutely pitch black with no hints of light creeping through the edges. Its topped by a one inch dark brown head that slowly fades to a thick cap and leaves behind an impressive webbing of lace. Smell; some bitter hops are first to float out of the glass, followed very closely by roasted malts, dark chocolate and rich espresso. I also get some hints of dark fruits and molasses. Taste; the piney hops, roasted malts and coffee really play well together. Dark chocolate and fruits flow through in the middle, and a nice sweetness counters a strong alcohol presence in the finish. Muhfeel is full bodied and silky smooth, but with the high abv the drinability takes a bit of a hit.
