I've been wanting to try this beer for quite sometime now. The name alone makes me smile everytime I say it. Huge thanks to BeerFMAndy for sharing this bomber with me.

Poured into my pint glass the beer is a black/brown hue with massive mocha colored head. The beer cascades like a chocolate waterfall. An agonizing wait reveals a thick coating of lace left in the wake of the tidal wave of head.

The aroma is an olfactory explosion. Dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, vanilla, and a hint of rootbeer.

The flavor is just an extension of the nose. Rich black coffee, chocolate, molasses, and butter scotch. The hops are present as well but they have to fight for your attention. The high ABV is hidden well. Fantastic.

Full body with low carbonation. Super smooth and velvety.

Dangerously easy to drink. Well put together RIS. I will be on the look out for more Yeti's in my area.

A- opaque, doesn't allow any light through even when held to the sun. espresso in appearance, dark coffee. It's almost purple...eggplant. Strong head retention, you could write a sports plan in a head this thick.

S- Roasted dark malt

T- Dark thick toffee with a mellow burnt aftertaste. Rough and Tough in the gentlest of ways.

M-Same weight as milk, thick but not too syrupy.

D- I'd have another and love it, i'd have another and regret it, i'd have another and forget I'd had another.

3.88/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Poured into a standard pint glass.

A: Jet black with a very creamy, thick tan head that doesn't want to go away. Good lacing. This is what a stout should look like.

S: Lots of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee. I smell more chocolate than coffee. Secondary aroma of spicy hops and alcohol also comes through.

T: Upfront it's loads of chocolate malt with coffee tinges. Hop flavor does a nice job supporting but certainly plays second fiddle. Aftertaste is of burned grain and bittersweet chocolate. Slight alcohol burn also.

M: My favorite part of this beer. It's exceptionally creamy; the mouthfeel reminds me of an ice cream float. Only thing that hurts it is that it's a little too carbonated.

D: The higher ABV and alcohol spiciness make it hard to have more than a couple of these at a time. Still, as far as Imperial stouts go, this is as drinkable as they come.

3.73/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dense black with a moderate and nice tan head. Good lacing.

Smell: Great coffee is about all I smell on the first whiff. Followed up with coco and little bit of booze.

Taste: The initial taste is great. Lots of bitter coffee, cinnamon and coco. Unfortunately, I'm getting a weird saccharin/coffee breath after taste that is a little bit of turn off.

Mouthfeel: Good mouth feel with prickily carbonation. Not at all viscous or syrupy.

Drinkability: Definitely a more drinkable imperial stout.

This is the second bottle I 've had in a week. Both times I was turned off by the after taste. All other aspects of the beer are great.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured into a shaker pint glass. An inch thick creamy head formed that was the color of chocolate milk. Color of the beer was extremely dark with no light penetrating except at the very edges of the glass and that was very rich reddish brown. Very nice looking beer, tough I was surprised by the low level of lacing.

The aroma is lots of chocolate sweetness, a bit of alcohol esters, and more cocoa. A very rich luscious aroma.

Taste is even more thick, rich, and chocolatey than the aroma. Nice balancing bite of hop bitterness that balances out the sweetness nicely. Finishes with a pleasant warming alcohol sensation. Mouthfeel is appropriately chewy, rich, and thick. Really great.

This is such an easy to drink Imperial stout. I would not have a problem knocking back several of these in short order. Of course, I'd pay for it, but it might just be worth it. Delicious, wonderful stout.

4.35/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pour - super dark and viscous (yeah, like motor oil, I know that analogy is getting old). The head is tan/coffee colored and boy is it thick and rich. Swirling it around provides quite a site. Very nice looking pour!

Aroma - cocoa powder, vanilla beans and quite a bit of floral hops in the nose. Reminds me of melted chocolate ice cream with a kiss of liquor. The alcohol permeates my sinuses just a bit.

Taste - the best way I can describe the first sip is cocoa liquer. Its strong and sweet with some dark coffee undertones. There are some burnt sugar flavors and lots of rich, roasty notes from all that dark malt. Finishes bitter and a little drying. Delicious and complex. Love it.

Overall - amazing stuff. A top notch Imperial Stout without a doubt. Super rich and flavorful with some malt muscle and a nice touch of hops.

Would I buy more of it? - yes, yes I would.

Vintage - This bottle rolled off the lines in January of 2009.

12oz bottle, snifter

A - poured big and (almost) black...thin layer of chocolate milkshake colored head. looks like what it is.

S - first whiff is of chocolate (like bitter bakers chocolate) and some toasted nuttyness. notes of caramel, toffee, a bit of stale coffee, which comes out more and more as the beer warms.

T - lots going on here. sweetness at first...brown sugar, toffee, then the chocolate, followed by the coffee, and finally a nice big hop bitterness to balance it all out. not too showy, but just downright delicious. alcohol pokes its head in here and there.

M - thick and chewy, the flavors coat the mouth. carbonation is just a *tad* overdone

D - a great stout...not flashy like its oak aged brothers, just something to sip on again and again. very pleasant all around and every sip begs for more.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz. bottle into a Yeti chalice. Beer was pitch black with a two-finger light brown head. Heavy lacing and light carbonation.

Aroma was hops, chocolate, toffee and light coffee.

Taste was chocolate, molasses, coffee, vanilla and roasted grains, followed by a moderately hoppy finish. Deelish.

The Yeti is an amazing beer. Whether it's aged w/ oak chips, chocolate, espresso, in whiskey barrels or on it's own, you can't beat it. Fantastic beer. Highly recommended.

22oz bomber pours a dark black with two fingers of caramal brown foam that disappears quickly. Smell is of roasted dark malts as most typical RIS do. This tastes a little too watery to me, with the burnt coffee taste as well. Its ok, but I was expecting something more from this. Its easy to drink, and you don't notice the abv%. However, was expecting something bigger and better from this Yeti. Not a bad beer though. That being said, I don't think I will pick this one up again.

I poured this monster beer into my tumbler at 50 degrees. The beer was black as tar, no light filtering through the dark thick slather. The head did not last very long. However the lacing was very tenacious. The taste was big coffee with a nutty/slightly chocolate hit afterward. I would buy again.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a snifter glass.

Appearance is a dark opaque black with a frothy mocha colored head that leaves some nice lacing.

Smell is pretty malty, with coffee, chocolate and a bit of the hops on the end.

Taste is pretty heavy with malts, bitter coffee and dark chocolate upfront followed by hop finish. The alcohol makes itself known with a nice warming bite to it.

Mouthfeel is rich and full bodied. Pretty thick and creamy.

Drinkability is pretty good. It goes down pretty easy but I don't think I'd have more than one bottle at a time. Its fairly rich and I think it be better in moderation. Overall a tasty brew.

GLASS: Snifter
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 50 degrees
BOTTLED ON: MAR 09 2009

This pours black, thick and heavy. Slightly oily. A medium pour gets almost two-fingers of chocolate brown foam for a head. It recedes to a surface covering of almost an 1/8 of an inch. The lacing is plentiful, spotty and slightly sticky. It fights against the oiliness to stay on the side of the glass.

Dark chocolate covered coffee beans and black cherries. A light touch of chocolate milk. A mild touch of booziness. Lots of roasted malts. A mild touch of vanilla tootsie rolls.

Big, thick, rich, chocolate flavors dominate this one. Huge presence of roasted malts. The sweetness is cut down by a good level of coffee bean bitterness. Mild hints of caramel toffees with a touch of vanilla. Also molasses and toasted barley.
The first sip or two of this one seem a touch out-of-balance and slightly boozy. As you get a bit further in to it though, it levels out and is a nicely balanced beer.

Beyond full-bodied, this qualifies as thick. It's coming close to Dark Lord territory, but not quite there yet. It has a mild-to-medium level of carbonation, which works wonderfully and gives it a lovely creaminess.
As far as an easily available stout, this is one of the best, body-wise.

Okay, so the 9.50%abv will definitely do you in, over time. I could still down three or four of these before it incapacitates me though, and I consider that to be a good thing. Throw the creamy body and smooth taste into the mix and this is one damn fine brew.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Beer is black with a dark mocha head. Very appealing.

Smells of roasted malts, coffee, and lots of chocolate. Plenty of hops for an RIS.

Taste is more of the same. I find it leaning more towards chocolate than anything else. Hops can definitely be detected behind the malt backbone.

The mouthfeel is thick and a bit rough around the edges, which I don't mind. Drinkability is pretty good since I much prefer a thicker RIS. I find thinner versions are actually more difficult to drink in any quantity. All around a very good beer.

I drank this 2009 from a 22 oz bottle into my Rochefort chalice.

This beer is very light black, you can see lots of brown in it with a very weak medium tan head. It only rises about a finger but is gone instantly. The lacing is equally weak.

The aroma is nice because its dominated by light coffee but its not terribly strong overall. You can also detect a little bit of vanilla and alcohol.

The taste is much stronger than the aroma. It starts off sweet but then is interrupted with lots of burnt roasted coffee that finishes off the beer. The taste isn't bad, its ok, but just not terribly complex which is what you look for in a ris.

The mouthfeel is viscous and lasting. The drinkability takes a hit because of the burnt coffee.

Overall the beer is ok. I would drink it again but I wouldn't actively search it out or pick over any number of RIS I've had.

650ml bottle in a Duvel glass. Pours pitch black with a thick, rich, warm brown head and nice lacing. The aroma is nice with strong notes of dark chocolate and coffee with an underlying maltiness. Not too surprisingly this smells a lot like Founder's Breakfast Stout, though perhaps slightly less rich. As it warms up a little I think I get a hint of cinnamon.

Wow, the flavor really jumps out at you and has good layers. The alcohol is up front and maybe a touch too strong at first, overpowering the other flavors a little. Once that settles down I get the expected sweetness, with chocolate and a bit if coffee. Mouthfeel is pleasing, not too thick nor thin. Drinkability suffers a bit from the strong alcohol taste (and content). Overall very nice though.

A: Pours out like Tar, but in a good way. Head is almost a dark bronze/cherry brown head to it.

S: Smells like your typical stout... Coffee/Bitter chocolate.

T: Taste reminds me a lot of Alesmith Speedway stout... Very sugary when you let it set on your lips. Very very thick. Only stout I have had thicker was the speedway. Only hit on this is it does not hide the alcohol quite as well as speedway (sorry for comparing it to that but it reminds me a lot of it)

Summary: Second thickest beer I have had. Very good taste, very thick, but would have been rated higher if it had hid the alcohol a little better.

Like others say, it pours like motor oil, but in the best way possible. Thick and syrupy.

The aroma is much like other imperial stouts, coffee, chocolate, and a slight presence of hops. A good, all around, malty aroma.

This beer has a sweet taste, touched with molasses, much like the smells of it. It has a strong flavor, and the hops are more present in the taste than in the aroma. A truly thick, chewy beverage.

This is my first beer from Great Divide Brewing Co. and certainly won't be my last. I was greatly pleased by this beer and will definitely be purchasing it again. However, where I live, this beer sells for $13.99 a four pack! That may be the standard price, but I am sure you can find it for cheaper.

Overall, an awesome Imperial Stout and a great beer.

Yeti Imperial Stout
bottle to glass

glub glub! pours as black as black can be. thick and syrupy, capped by a thick mocha colored head that leaves sheets of lacing behind.

smell: whoa! reminds me of the old reeses commercial.
'you got imperial stout in my hops!'
'you got hops in my imperial stout!'
behind the strong hop smell rests some thick dark malt, and dark bitter chocolate.

the taste of alcohol is the most prevalent when you take the first sip, but eases as it warms, giving way to the hop load, the rich maltiness, dark chocolate, coffee, burnt wood earthiness, and sweet molasses. pleasantly bitter. great mouthfeel. thick and syrupy, creamy, and rich. goes down easy with a lingering taste of burnt malt and hops that leaves you wanting for more.

wow i love this big hairy imp. it's delicious, and i dont even mind the alcohol presence. i only wish i'd aged this baby a bit more than i did to reduce some of the astringency. would and will drink again. this time though, i'm buying a case and aging a few.

Not for the faint of heart. This sucker's strong. A really dark coffee flavor with a distinct boozy back end. I enjoyed it a lot but don't think I could do more than maybe one more bottle. Of course my lips where kind of numb by the end of the one 22oz bottle I had, so two would probably do me in.

The texture was a nice, thick, oily creaminess and it poured with a hefty head. My brother said it looked like used motor oil. Pretty much hit that nail on the head. So to speak.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours jet black, darker than Coca-Cola. With a very dark tan almost brown inch high head, very good looking beer.

Smell: I got some roasted malt notes, so chocolate, coffee, toffee/caramel. Very characteristic for the style.

Taste: It was bitter, but no to bitter, I got lots of the same notes from the smell, coffee, caramel. chocolate. Very well balanced with the low bitter toasted barley notes, with some hops up high. Great tasting beer.

Mouthfeel. It was thick, it coated my tongue and the rest of my mouth, not too much carbonation, which accentuates the complexity of this beer.

Drinkability: I had 2 from the 4 pack in about 2 hours. Smooth and easy to drink, i found this beer sessionable, but not overly so. But also don't get a 4 pack of these on a full stomach, you'll regret it later.

22oz bomber from 2008 served into a tulip glass

Pours a super-dark, not quite black, burnt coffee brown. The really tan, almost orange, head never gets larger than one finger in size. Very minimal lacing. This just looks like a normal-ass imperial stout; that's not bad but I can't in good conscious rate it higher than a 3.

Thankfully the aroma comes out kicking like a mule where the appearance didn't. Lots of coffee and strong, sort of syrupy molasses aromas coming from the roasted malts. The hoppy smells one would expect from a fresher bottle of Yeti aren't present. There is a worrisome element of salt... what comes to mind is soy sauce.

I'm digging the specific roasted malt flavor here... its isn't predominantly chocolate or coffee like in many impy stouts. it really just tastes like roasted malt. The hop character hasn't completely diminished, though what is left is just some herbal, leafy flavor on the back end. There is some residual sweetness coming from the alcohol and it helps to brighten up the malt.

This is a full-bodied beer; its plenty thick enough to feel satisfying. While the alcohol plays a role in the flavor this beer was never hot with alcohol harshness. In spite of this thick body I find this Yeti to be easy-drinking for the style. The swallows keep going down with no palate fatigue.

I'd probably prefer a fresher bottle of this specific imperial stout but what I had was pretty good. Based on this bottle I don't get the numerous reviews of 'A' or higher. It doesn't do anything exceptional. Its a solid impy stout for the price.

Drinking this on November 8, 2009; bottle says it was filled on Jul 10.

It's a heck of a pour. The head stays around, and the color is surprising. I held my glass up to a lightbulb and couldn't see any light coming through. I bet I could trick someone into thinking I was drinking used motor oil.

Smells and tastes like coffee and chocolate. The smell is slightly more coffee, and the taste is slightly more chocolate. It actually has a sweet aftertaste, and then the coffee taste lingers. There's also a neat hoppiness to it all that seems very strong to non-beer fans, but tastes great to me.

Really smooth, and definitely drinkable. But, I think the drinkability stops around 1. I'd definitely make this the last beer of the night.

I wish I had a steak to go with this. The bottle suggests it, and I agree with this bottle.

This is the yeti!!

Poured into a 16oz pint glass out of a 22 oz bomber , it appears an incredibly dark black in which no light can penetrate , also leaving a very brown creamy head that'll leave lace and residue.
The smell is reminicent of previous imperial stouts, but this one smells more chocolatey and coffeeish than the others. This is a good thing to me , maybe it wont be as boozy as others.
This has been in my fridge all day but still seems barely chilled , it has a heavy ass mouthfeel and first thing I can tell is robust coffee flavor combined with subtler choco notes than other stouts I've had , A bit boozy , but not as much as other brews I've had , to me this isn't breathtaking taste wise , but has some strong attributes . The hops play quite a role in this imperial making it a bit bitter.

Strengths:
-Awesome look and smell
- nice slight nuttiness that is noticable at beginning
- coffee and choco balance nicely but don't overwhelm.
- good drinker.

Weaknesses:
- sticky as hell
- very heavy mouthfeel

Badass beer , must try

M - very smooth and full mouthfeel. Couldn't ask for anything else.

D - This is an excellent RIS. It is very in-your-face with flavor and walks the line of being overpowering. However, it is balanced with its malt profiles and has some decent hop characteristics to it.

Apperance: From the depths of a twelve ounce bottle comes forth a black opaque beer with a head on that is about one finger thick. That may have been an understatement. This pure black evil that makes dark as night look brighter than the sun. This is an abyss of darkness with a stunning brown coffee colored head on top.

Aroma: Dark and milk chocolate and dark roasted malty goodness. Molasses notes like no other incredible burnt hopiness grace the nose so very gently.

Taste: Wow the sweetness from the roasted malts is remarkable. Lots of dark roasted hopiness. Great notes of molasses and incredible notes of dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is thick yet silky smooth.

Notes: This is a great Russian Imperial perfect for the coldest of days or nights. Cheers.
