Pours pitch black with a brownish off white head. Pretty much perfect for the style.

The smell is dark roasted malts, slightly sweet.

The taste is roasted malts, bitter coffee with a bit of sweetness.

The mouthfeel is thick and chewy with medium carbonation.

Overall a delightful imperial stout, heavy and delicious.

BOD 6/17/14. Pours dark as a starless night. Very good head with exceptional lacing and very good retention. Rich nose of dark chocolate, very little roast character, over a nice citrus hop background with only a hint of coffee. As it warms, light vanilla notes are noticed. Rich full body with a creamy texture. Below normal carbonation with no effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is complex, but the alcohol is not well hidden. It begins with rich dark chocolate that flows into notes of coffee coupled with vanilla over a rich malt sweetness. Roast is noted in the middle over a citric hop flavor and mild bitterness. The smooth finish is dominated by alcohol and leaves a warm back of throat burn and a burnt sugar lingering aftertaste. Dial the alcohol back a bit and this one becomes outstanding.

I have a soft spot for cryptozoology, so its name piqued immediately. This was my first sampling from the Great Divide Brewing Company. A pretty good test to how tall this company stands. Yeti provides an excellent serving of hops to its Imperial Stout tradition. A dark, frothy ale best served cold and as soon as purchased. Personally, I enjoy it right before a movie in bed.

Drank this from the cask at Falling Rock Ale House in Denver. Perfect temp brought out the many layers of this exceptional Imperial Stout. This is a treat!
