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).

Great and close to the oak aged version. Nice malty, roasted aroma with some alcohol and sweetness. Cool black color with minimal head retention. Could not see through it. Same deep roasted flavors as would be expected, coffee essence. Smooth palate, almost oily. This is so good.

From a 12floz can (canned on 01.12.2017, bought as a single within a $10 mix-six) to a large snifter glass. Looks fabulous, a brown well-contained two finger head calms to a layer leaving its marks on the glass. The body is a very dark brown and it is full and robust. Chocolate and alcohol fill the nose, yet in my mouth coffee, resin, and pine are evident. This is pretty good as it is not overly bitter roasted, but I do prefer a silkier and sweeter imperial stout. I have had this before from bottles, and do very much enjoy the oaked-aged and chocolate versions very much (The espresso is good too, better than this but not as good as those two).

Puszka 0,33l. Kawa, winogrona i jabłka. Lekko słodki, dość palony, do tego aromat sosny i owocw, ktry nie bardzo pasuje do całości i jest nieco zbyt dominujący.

Really nice and classic RIS. Caramel, roast and coffee in aroma (piny scent is kind of interesting). Well balanced (similar polish beer - Golem Lilith).

355ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a dark brown head. Vanilla, toasted coconut, some dried fruit, lots of roastiness. Very smooth. Lovely.

heman (869) - 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 (59) - 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.

Piękna, puszysta i trwała ciemnobeżiea piana. Czarne i oleiste piwo. W aromacie kawa, karmel i mleczna czekolada. W smaku kawa. Pokaźna giryczka. Sporo paloności.

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.
