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).

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2006
Bottle. A lot more squeezing than the oaked version, not so sweet. Still black with a brown head. Smell: coffee, chokolade. Taste chokolade, strong hop, roast malts, coffee. Again the taste of undesolved chokoladepowder, this dry chokolade flavour.

Benzai (15092) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2012 Bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Pitch black, opaque color, average sized creamy beige head. Smells pretty hoppy, grapefruit, bitter and some coffee. Very nice grapefruit, hops and dark fruits taste. Soft carbonation, medium body. [Score is a re-rate without comment. Old score: 8-3-8-4-14]

bhensonb (14871) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Aroma of dark roasted malt, backed by coffee and chocolate. Starts with a very strong, almost licorice, flavor. Ok, this could be "massive, roasty". I think theres coffee. This is so massive that the chocolate gets hidden for the most part. It does not finish all that dry, and the hop is almost overcome by the toasted malt. That massive, roasty seems to be keeping the hop out of my taste profiling. There is bitter in the finish, but Im not convinced its hop. Strong stuff. If there are stoutheads, this should work for them. Note: after some passage of time, I actually think I find grapefruit. Still this is dark roasted stuff.

Ratman197 (14356) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2005
This was a bottle of 2003 Maverick [the origanal name before Yeti] Imperial Stout I had in my cellar. Pours a dark opaque black with a big dark brown head that really hangs in there. Aromas of faint smoke, coffee, and chocolate.It has a smooth rich mouthfeel. Rich roast malt, and coffee flavors dominate with some chocolate and carmel. The bitterness has really dropped out from when it was fresh.

imdownthepub (14207) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011
On tap at The Euston Tap, Euston, London. Black with tan head. Full on roasty, burnt, sweet, caramel / toffee flavours. Overwhelming on the palate, tricky to enjoy in a pub like this would probably be better as a fireside warmer. Bitter finish.

Bottle. Large rocky light brown head that lasted thru the brew. Aroma was a heavy molasses and coffee. Full creamy body. Flavor was heavy complex sweet with a light bitter finish. Good brew.

argo0 (14012) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 27, 2004
(2003 Bomber) Small dark brown head atop a motor oil body. Aroma is sweet, big malty, coffee, citrus hops, some vinous, some alcohol. Taste is medium sweet, coffee, grapefruit, some vinous. Finishes with a medium alcohol warming/burn. Big body. No question they put shitloads of malt and hops in this one -- beautiful beer.
