Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout - 9.5% ABV
Served at Room temp.
C: Black with about one inch of dark cappucino colored head. No light penetrates the glass.
S: Malts. Coffee. Roasted scent. Light floral/fruity scent. Sweetness.
T: Barley Malts. Slight mossy quality. The coffee flavors linger throughout the middle. Soft rounded fruity uundertones in the flavor. Not very bitter. It has a strong aftertaste of coffee. The alcohol is present and noticeable, but doesn't dominate or spoil the taste. It lingers almost wholly in the background. I was concerned that the warm serving would detract from the experience, but it is actually complimentary. Good complex combination of flavors and very well balanced.
M: A little watery. Medium carbonation.
D: Highly drinkable and enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz bottled poured into a snifter
A - motor oil black. Minimal dark brown head (as with most RIS) and lacing.
S -dark chocolate, roasted malts, hint of dark fruit, coffee
t - all the yeti's (including expresso and particularly chocolate) have this hint of mint in the taste. Roasted malts are heavy, coffee bitterness is present along with some hops, chocolate is very light. Little bit of alcohol in the finish
m - fairly carbonated for an IS, medium mouthfeel. Just about right.
o - one of my favorite year round imperial stouts. a little more bitterness and bite than some of the other seasonal/special release classics like Zhukov or KBS but something you can find almost anywhere it's one of the best.
