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).

Chrisco88 (9) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Appearance: Extremely dark brown, some may say black. Thick, luxurious foamy head that lasts, chocolate brown in color. Aroma: Coffee, dark malts and glorious chocolate! Closer sniffs revealed subtle hints of that noble hop goodness, not overpowering or pungent at all. Taste: Chocolate and malts are predominant, aftertaste has some coffee/toffee tones and a good portion of hop bitterness but not out of balance at all. Palate: Silky smooth and almost chewy. Noticeable aftertaste of alcohol which puts me off a bit, but the strong coffee/chocolate tastes keep it from burning or feeling hot. Overall: On the whole a great tasting beer but the strong and lasting flavors combined with the high ABV keep it from being enjoyable on a regular basis. While slowing sipping my one glass kept me impressed throughout, about half way through I realized I wouldnt care for another glass of this anytime soon... one was good but itll do for a while.

heman (867) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 24, 2017
Do szkła nalewa się czarny, nieprzejrzysty trunek z piękna brązową, gęstą i kremową czapą piany, ktra ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat jest intensywny i zdominowany popiołową palonością i mocna kawą espresso. W tle nuty suszonych owocw i tytoniowy chmiel. W smaku potężne, wręcz likierowe. Ponownie dominuje wyrazista paloność, ziarnista kawa i nuty melasy, suszonych. Wysoka słodycz rekompensowana jest wysoką chmielową goryczką, o tytoniowym charakterze. Finisz jest wytrawny, popiołowy.

mviljamaa (57) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Pours with an okay, coffee colored, brown foam. Has coffee color. Aroma is burnt and has e.g. tobacco, vanilla, tar, licorice, dried plum and rose. The aroma is complex and sophisticated. Palate is perfectly balanced and "fluffly". Taste is slightly bitter and has tobacco, charcoal, dried plum, nut skin, licorice, burnt sugar, lemon peel and slight "herbal liquor" notes. Very tasty and strong. This is not a too strong stout, but rather very well balanced between strongness and lightness. Its an excellent stout, highly recommended.

One of the few true classics in the beer world. No one pours a better 12 oz bottle stout with such character and taste that I know of. To define it would be to try to penetrate a mystery that none can decipher. Its the true legend, the lost beast. I try not to buy them too often because its so good, Im afraid of burning myself out on it or being disappointed for once. I honestly wish I could buy cases of the stuff, four bottles is never enough. If I was rich I would just have it on tap at all times at my house and have them come clean the tap once a week. It honestly makes you forget about Guinness in Ireland. This is THE stout. The mouthfeel is so tremendous and thick and pours so rich, it even lets you forget about the amazing bourbon barrel stouts you sometimes find at bars, but can hardly get in a bottle or can. Its basically perfect, and its old too, it came before the darker aged stouts started to get in vogue. I cant believe something like this is sold out of my state. Old reliable, if there ever was one.
