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).

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Pours black as coal w/ a medium sized thick, creamy froth. Aroma is full of chocolate cakebread. Full nectar w/ mellow residual effers. Flavors of blackened steak and german chocolate cakebread puch you in the face right at the opening bell. As you are K.O.d and falling other flavors come to mind as your life flashes by. Espresso, iodine, leather, sourdough, big fat day old charred coffee, tar, coconut. BAM! you hit the floor and the huge bitterness drills your palate to finish you off. This is a HUGE style. Malty sweetness meets a severe charred hop twitch. Submit you fool the Yeti cries. The intensity here is in the same league as Mephistopheles. You almost want to run from it. The oak aged version is a tad more tame and refined. This is the bad boy!

Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout 22 oz bomber Bottled Fall 05(?), tamed 10/06 Medium pour in an English pint. Poured black with a mostly lasting light brown frothy head with excellent lacing. Smelt strongly of dark chocolate, dark coffee roast. Taste was upfront strong bitter dark chocolate followed by an equally strong bitter coffee feel and moderate bitter grassy hops with a moderate toffee sweetness, and faint fruity esters, on a long smoky vinous perfumey finish. Mouthfeel was medium/heavy, syrupy, soft carbonation and light to moderate soothing alcoholic warmth, and moderate to strong astringency. Overall, a great imperial stout that offers bold taste and aroma, and looks dangerously satisfying. Hits strongly but satisfyingly. A great winter warmer. Side note: It is more well rounded in flavors and mouthfeel than its oak-aged counterpart, but this brew is as good as it gets flavorwise, whereas aging the oak-aged version would soften it and propel it over the regular version.

Great imperial stout. One of the most balanced and enjoyable I have tried. Strong malty nose balanced with a crisp bitterness that leaves your palate wanting more.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7489) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this marvelous beer poured thick, black and oily with the darkest brown head I have ever seen. The aroma is a wonderful mix of roasty malts, sweet chocolate and light floral hops. The mouthfeel is thick and smooth. The flavor is moderate floral hops, sweet chocolate and roasty malts. The finish is long with bitter malts and sweet chocolate. Overall a classic of the style and significantly better than the barrel aged version.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Free pour from bottle at Knoxville Brewers Jam 06. Pours dark black, even against the bright sunlight, with a dark tan head. Aroma was strong on the chocolate, with notes of coffee, lots of molasses, and even some hop qualities shining though. Flavor was very rich chocolate and coffee, with a very nice roasty finish. Unfortunately, I somehow inhaled some of this into my lungs, and had trouble talking for an hour or so.

22 oz split with Dan. Completely black with a light brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate with heavy roast up front giving way to sweet dark and caramel malts. Roasty and hoppy bitter finish throughout, with a very full body and light alcohol.
