Poured a pure jet black with a finger of tan head. Aroma on this one is very strong on toffee and roasted chocolate-like malts. Taste is a dual assault of some strong bitter chocolate and piney hops. There is also a hell of a lot of toffee. Full bodied. There is certainly a bit of citrus as well on the hops, but the pine is stronger. The alcohol lingers a bit stronger on the aftertaste, especially as the beer warms up. The toffee, while expected in a stout, tends to have a bit too strong of a presence here and drowns almost everything else on the aftertaste. While this is still an excellent brew, the amount of toffee it keeps it from being (in my opinion) a top tier imperial stout. Odde (308) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2009
thick lacing and a light brown head rest atop the dark cola body. a hoppy bitterness rises forth over the malt base. Yeti doesn’t have the thickest mouthfeel for an imperial stout, but its not too thin, either. Worth trying again. GSH1976 (307) - Delaware, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Pours an almost black color with some light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Taste is similar with a lingering bitter finish. The alcohol is noticeable but not overly so. The body is medium to heavy and somewhat creamy. Overall this is a very nice beer. soyorganic (307) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle: Pours a black color with a huge tan head. Nice molasses type aroma. Taste has a wonderful sweetness, but not over the top like I thought the Oak Aged version was, with the stout bitterness. This is a wonderful beer. mikkos (306) - FINLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Oily, almost pitch black beer, with a small small head. Aroma is huge - dark malts, hops with fruits, roasted malts, coffee, rye bread, a hint of alcohol, port wine. So much going on. Taste follows with roasty malts, coffee, rye, smoked malts, chocolate with a hint of alcohol following. Very slick and smooth mouthfeel, oily texture, low co2. Finishes smooth and bitter. Very very good!

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2007 MY 100th rating, from my favorite brewery. Your not a man until you have had one of their beers. Jet back in color, two finger off white head. Coffee, roasted barley, brown sugar, cinnamon and sweet malt. Finishes clean and dry with a subtle sweetness. mickut (305) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle. Pours black with minimal brown head. Taste is medium bitter and light sweetness. Palate is full bodied, almost oily with a bitter finish. Aromas have heavy roasted/burnt malt, spruce, coffee flavors, some wood. Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Draft at Kclinger’s Pub. Nearly black with a small brown head. Very aromatic with coffee, chocolate, raisin, malt, a little hops.
Flavor is very complex and a little hoppy. Nice slightly bitter hops on the finish. Great beer. clingman71 (300) - Centerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2007 Bottle, at the brewery? Great Divide is a small production brewery. they gave an excellent tour, but are only equipeed with a few of their beers on draft. They were happy to open up bottles of anything that we wanted to try. Big, black, bold, and beautiful! Roasty aroma of dark chocolate and burnt sugar, with a little coffee. A great 1-2 punch along with the oak aged version. It has a little more edge, or nuts if you will, but they are both excellent. Huge, roasty, and a dry finish that kleft me desiring a lot more of it. HOWEVER, IT DOES NOT MAKE FOR A GOOD SESSION BEER!!!!!!!
