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).

Oakes (17166) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2005 Black with dark brown head. Coffeeish, slightly chocolatey aroma. Stingy alcohol taste but this is more than countered by chocolatey, lightly coffeeish malts. Hop balance is noticeable, but not aromatic. Straightforward, tasty strong stout...the hop bitterness and black patent has me thinking a bit of McAuslan, but with more alcohol.

yngwie (16989) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2010 Bottled. Jet black, even more black, and topped by a creamy tan head. Coffee, hops and hints of chocolate in the aroma. The flavor has a lot of sweetness and theres roasted malt and coffee. Full-bodied and dry, with a finish of sweetness, alochol and some chocolate. The promised bitterness is well hidden, but thats ok. This is a really nice beer, but if I could choose, I would go for the oak aged version. Rating: 8-5-7-4-16-4.0. 060704

Bottle at Patricks. It pours a pitch black, oily body and a small, dense, dark tan head. The aroma is intense and lovely. Licorice, molasses, some ashtray and quite roasted. Nicely hopped too, citrusy and piney. Well hidden alcohol. Its full-bodied and oily, slightly warming. The flavor is much like the aroma. Lots of darkness and with a bitterness level suited for the beer. Sweet and burnt. Really lasting finish, a little too warming. A lovely beer, although not very well suited as the first beer after work. 101105

mcberko (16960) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours deep black with the darkest head Ive ever seen. Aroma of dark espresso, roasted malt, chocolate, nuts and burnt caramel. Extremely complex flavour of espresso, chocolate, roasted malt, with an intensely smooth and rich palate, ends on an espresso note. What an amazing stout!

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Pours black in color with a tan head. Nose is heavy on the roasted malt with lots of coffee, licorice, and dark chocolate. Still nicely sweet with some toffee aromas. A mild hoppiness to it as well. A touch of bitterness on the palate from all the roast. Good chocolate, coffee, and roast flavors to it. Mild to moderate sweetness of toffee, molasses, licorice, and chocolate. A bit of cocoa powder bitterness to it.

Bottle. Pours oily black with dark brown head. Nose of chocolate , licorice, burnt malts, coffee and vanilla. Taste of vanilla beans, rich dark chocolate, licorice, burnt coffee and lightly smoked malts. Probably one of the best imperial stouts for the money (this and Expedition).

Dedollewaitor (16045) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2006
When you pours this you quickly smell and see that this is not your average brewed stout. This one has characther. Thick black with brown head. Strong chocolate and coffee notes. Filling in the mouth. The finish is lasting and pleasant bitter. WAUW! (Best imperial stout ive tasted to date)

FatPhil (15822) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 12, 2008
355ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Black, brief tan head. Sweet, almost-chocolatey roasted malt aroma; some touch of hops just breaks through. Smooth palate, gentle carbonation. Quite a punch of burntness, quite charcoaly, and almost astringently bitter. The hops balance that interestingly with an almost sherbetty and bitter orange-zest zing. Becomes a bit sludgier and slimier in the mouth as it warms, makes me wonder if Ill need a spoon by the time I get to the bottom. Rather lacking in subtlety, but it obviously wasnt designed for subtlety (I dont honestly think most of the Colorado brewers can do subtle, even if they tried). Finish is burnt, piney, and a touch metallic. And sticky. Pretty OK sipper, but not one Id want any volume of. Alcohol quite bold, but surrounded by malts and hops it doesnt jump out as being excessively boozy, just very big. Oak age it for the win.

MiP (15484) - Snderborg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
Bottle. Very strong, sweet, nice liquorice aroma. Black colour, dark brown head. Flavour is strong, fruity and sweet with nice aromatic hoppiness. Liquorice aftertaste. Mouthfeel is creamy.
