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).

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 Pours a jet black color w/ an average frothy light brown head. The lacing is averagewith a mostly diminishing head. The nose has a medium molasses and chocolate sweetness, with hints of tofee and dark coffee. The mouthfeel is amazing and long lasting with toffee, coffee, a moderate hoppiness, and good floral hop flavors. It drinks very creamy with a very dry long finish. A great beer from a great brewery.

The pour reveals a pitch black color with a thin brown head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Excellent aroma and flavor of resinous hops, roasted malt and chocolate with a strong bitter finish. The body has a medium thickness with a dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. This is really good, the malt is rich and the hops give a good sense of balance to roast and chocolate.

Boutip (6084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2006
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black stout with a medium off-white foamy head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and vanilla is very enjoyable. Taste start with some bitterness from the roasted malt and hops but then fades away to leave a strong vanilla finish. Body is about medium full and could have been fuller and alcohol is well hidden. A bit more sweet then the oak-aged version but as enjoyable nonetheless.

asheft (3026) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2006
[on tap at Dieu de Ciel during the Mondial de la Biere] Fruity mocha and butterscotchy oak aroma that doesnt have the usual oaky vanilla. Black, opaque, with brown foam cover. Salty and sour, intense dark malt, with sherry notes, but strangely no chocolate or coffee in the flavour. Medium body and moderately astringent.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2008 (Bottle at Olbaren, Copehagen) Pours black with a small brown head. Smell: wet asfalt in sunshine. Rum raisins. Fresh and heavy at the same time. Notes of dark fruits. Some alcohol sweetness. Notes of cocoa. Taste: In the beginning sweet, ends with dry afterbitterness, cocoa. Coffee. Salty liquorice. Sweet but dry. Complex. Good body but not excelent. Second try: (Bottle) Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of roasted and light burned malt with tones of chocolate, light coffee and light caramel. Also a lot of piny, grapefruit-ish and resiny hops. Undertones of black berries and asphalt. A great deal of alcohol warmth is also present in the nose. Burned malt flavour with citric and resiny hops. Malt brings dark chocolate and coffee, mostly espresso. A salty, full bitterness is covering everything. Grapefruit-ish hops and burned liquorice in the finish. Round and lightly soft mouthfeel but with a black belt karate bitterness cover everything. Full bodied and with an aggressive IIPA bitterness.

Aroma is spices, banana, chocolate and toffee. Thick, pillowy tan head looked like tan whipped cream. Lots of toffee, vanilla, chocolate and some coffee in the flavor. ABV not even noticed. Very good.

beachbum25 (1086) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - AUG 20, 2006
22 oz bomber-Poured a dark ruby red, almost black color. Strong sweet roasted malty aroma. Overpowering flavor of coffee, chocolate, cherry. Sweet & bitter all at once. There is a whole lot going on here-maybe a little too much. Long, strong, rough finish of peat/burnt toast that I did not find refreshing or enjoyable-or I would have rated this one higher. Would probably benefit from some cellar time to mellow out a little.
