Great Divide Brewing Belgian Style Yeti

Appearance: dark brown, small head, and good lacing.

Smell: yeast, cocoa, and a malty grain.

Taste: chewy chocolate bar, some hops, light grain, and very light cocoa.

Mouthfeel: medium and smooth.

Overall:
This is a pretty good brew. The flavors are nice and not overly powerful. This is extremely drinkable and smooth. It reminds me of the Great Divide 17th Anniversary but with less complexity.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Pours up very little head and has just as little retention. The head is a dark beige with hints of burnt umber while the body is an opaque, dark chocolate brown. Leaves no real lacing but this beer has seen some age.

Nose- Fascinating. I've never gotten so many fruity esters from a stout before- the glass is dominated by them. Cherries, plums, hints of raisins, even a little bit of citrus (mostly orange but some lemon). I think I even caught a hint of some banana after it settled. The aroma from the bottle is more traditional and shows a good amount of chocolate and coffee with slight hints of vanilla, caramel, and toffee. But the fruity esters are the star of the show and even exhibit a bit of tartness. These begin to fade and the more traditional notes I described start to emerge from the glass.

Taste- Very reflective of the nose- I'm getting most of the non-traditional fruity aspects up front followed by the more traditional aspects which lead into the finish. Cherries, plums, and raisins are bright and the citrus aspects tend to get subsumed by the roasted malts (mostly coffee) which interrupt the middle. There is none of the phenolic character that you get from a lot of Belgian yeast and I certainly appreciate that. That is the main reason why I waited so long to purchase this beer; I only pulled the trigger when I learned that it was discontinued. I'm quite impressed by the presence and complexity that exists after almost a year and a half. Slight woodiness, maybe a touch of cloves but it is hard to distinguish from the coffee and short, rich chocolate of the finish. Without a doubt, a really good beer. The rounded sweetness of the front works beautifully with the muted bitterness and the roasted notes of the finish. Perhaps it is best that I waited this long as I would not have experienced it at this age. I am going to have to buy the last bottle I know of to see how it will develop even further. The balance and integration are amazing.

Mouthfeel- A little more than medium bodied with mild carbonation. Maybe a little too much but this is a mild complaint. Some velvet to the texture.

Drinkability- Very easy drinking. No heat. I wish there were more. Not as good as Espresso Yeti but it's probably my second for the series. 11.50 for a vintage bottle ain't bad either.

Overall- Really good- expresses some of the best of Belgium on the rock solid platform of Yeti. Much of the Yeti aspects have diminished but the yeast has taken over to fill in. If you see a left over bottle, buy it. Even if you don't like it, do it for someone else. I'm happy I did.

Bottled June 6th, 2012.

Pours out black with ruby edges. Thin mocha head. Smells of chocolate and coffee with a touch of buttery caramel. Faint Belgian yeast clove. I pick up some earthy hops as well. The flavor: wow. Lots of chocolate and buttery toffee up front. The roastiness come out a bit more in the middle along with some bitterness from the roast and hops. Belgian yeast is more prevalent in the aftertaste as a vapor in the mouth of esters. This is kind of like drinking a heath bar. Full of flavor, but it restrains itself from beating you over the head. A bit sweet overall. Mouthfeel is not as heavy as you would think, which is a good thing, and the carbonation is so smooth and creamy. Excellent version of Yeti, which is sadly retired.

22 oz bottle into a tulip. From yesterday.

A: Pours a nearly pitch black color with a LOT of sediment at the bottom of the glass. A mocha shaded head that's one finger high crowns the body. It retains acceptably (I've seen better, though) with little lacing left behind.

S: Lots of dark chocolate. Wow. As brilliantly chocolaty as it is, it's backed up by many other rock-solid notes, like dark fruit, roast, and savory malt. Not a hint of alcohol anywhere. This smells absolutely fantastic.

T: At first, the chocolate notes are divine. They really are. A midtaste of subtle fruit turns into a roasty finish helping to balance all of that dark chocolate flavor. Hops are negligible, expected given its age. After several ounces, though, it seems to take a turn for the worse. The bread notes from the yeast combine with a budding leathery flavor to make the brew slightly undesirable after a long period of resting. I'd give it a lower score, but the first few ounces were easily a 4.5 - so rather than downrate it horribly, I'd say just share it with a few people instead. Problem solved.

M: This is where I'm most let down. Instead of the luscious, full creaminess of regular Yeti, it feels thin and somewhat insubstantial. It's adequately soft, sure, but in no way supports the flavors sufficiently enough. For something that isn't superbly drinkable, it should feel more decadent.

O: Like the other Yeti variants, this is absolutely a quality brew. But after a while, the aftertaste kills it for me - which is a damn shame, because everything else about the flavors are fantastic. The weak body doesn't help. A great one to share, but probably my least favorite Yeti.

Poured into a new belgium globe glass from a bottled dated june 2012. Pours a pitch black as you would expect from a yeti with frothy two finger tan head with great retention and tons of sticky lacing. So black absolutely no light comes through. Smells of tart fruit, coffee, and chocolate. The belgian yeast smell is also present bringing out banana and cloves in the aroma. First sips first taste like your average stout with chocolate, coffee and roasted malt notes. Taste finishes with some sour fruits and bannanas brought out by the belgian yeast. I really like the belgian aspect of this stout, making it unique and quite tasty as well as refreshing. The funky, tart fruits complement the beer nicely. As the beer warms more flavors come out such as cherries, more belgian funk, and more typical stout flavors. Not much carbonation in this beer which works well but I think the mouthfeel is a little bit off. Mouthfeel is somewhat flat and doesn't have that creamy feel to it but its not bad by any means. Also I realize that this style is better enjoyed in the winter compared to a hot summer day like today. I'm really impressed with this beer as it is unique. It doesn't sound like it will work well but it works great. A truly unique stab at the style. This one has been recently discontinued so make sure to buy it soon if you want to try it. Looking forward to trying more from great divides yeti series. A great and unique brew! Too bad it is being discontinued I really like this one alot for its uniqueness and overall deliciousness!

22 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (bottling section is blank)

A: Very dark brown with no head even on the pour.

S: Roasty sweet malt goodness.

T: Funky. Spicy malts.

M: Smooth with no carbonation. Flat and very thin.

O: I feel like there is something wrong with this batch/bottle. I got it at a store that I hadn't been to before but had some crazy deals and some really old stuff (17th anniv Great Divide). It wasn't kept cold but most stores don't keep theirs cold and I got one from the back of the shelf. Maybe it was infected but I've never had anything infected before, especially a stout so I have no idea what it would taste like. Also, I've never had this before so there is that. It could just be the belgian part of it, but I doubt it.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some dark cola highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy dark tan head that reduces to a couple of medium sized slightly thin patches of larger bubbles, a very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Slightly more than moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of chocolate malts along with some lighter notes of dark fruits (plum, fig, and raisin) as well as some faint hints of spices.

T: Moderate flavors of roasted malts with some cocoa, chocolate, and dark fruits (plum, fig, and raisin). There are light to moderate notes of coffee, candi sugar, and some faint spices.

M: Medium to full bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: This is an interesting beer as it seems to fall somewhere between a Belgian Strong Dark Ale and a Russian Imperial Stout - with the lighter body than normally found in a stout and the spices along with dark fruits. The alcohol is extremely well hidden and this us an enjoyable beer.

Bottle from Total Wine in Tampa. From notes.

A - Poured black with one finger of tan head. Alcohol legs very present, film retention, no lace.

S - Coffee, chocolate, yeasty, funk, booze, licorice.

T - Yeast and funk up front with lot's of chocolate. Really earthy with some dark fruit too. Nice.

M - Medium tingly carbonation, medium to full body, Belgo yeast finish with lot's of dryness.

O/D - A nice brew. Complex and adds a nice twist that works well. A little bit of alcohol was noticeable, but not enough to include as a flaw. Good stuff.

June 20th, 2011 bottling date. Just about 2 years old.

A: Pours black with a nice big thick and dense medium brown head. Head fades at a moderate pace, with great retention. Medium-sized small splotches of lacing left behind.

S: Funny, markedly different from "normal" yeti. Very fruity, lots of dark fruits like raisins and figs. Plums too? A little smoke and a little earth too. Tiny bit of umami floating in the background. Very little roasted malt stands out, a little char perhaps.

T: Yup, very fruity up front again. Cherries in there too now. Almost even stronger than the aroma. Tiny bit of char, smoke and chocolate to go with it. A little bitter chocolate briefly. Sweetness disappears in the finish; lingering bitter, acrid smoke in the aftertaste with some earthy belgian yeast.

M: Somewhat heavy, super super super smooth. Goes down like silk.

O: Hmph, interesting. Pretty typical of the belgian treatment of stouts. Body is a little lighter, but smoother. Roasted malt takes a backseat to fruitiness and earthiness. I prefer a more robust roasted malt character but this is still quite nice. Good flavors, good balance and super smooth drinkability. An interesting and tasting variation of the venerable yeti line.

From: Beertopia, Omaha, NE
Bottled 2011-07-27
Glass: Tulip

Great Divide's Belgian Yeti is a quite solid imperial stout with the interesting twist of phenolic flavors produced via the Belgian yeast. While not the most amazing stout I've tried, this is a very good and satisfying take on the style.

Beer pours a 1cm-tall head of dark tan foam, with below average retention of about 1 minute. The head fades to a thin ring around the perimeter of the glass. Lcing is present, a sparse arrangement of medium-sized blotches that cling to the insides of the glass. The body is dark brown to black, opaque, with light bringing out very dark amber colors around the edges. Carbonation not visible.

Aroma heavy on semi-dark chocolate (50% or so), surprising levels of caramel-like sweetness, a slight black dried fig ester, some spicy Belgian yeast phenolics, and slight roasted coffee beans.

Overall, taste of mild, acrid, roast malt with caramel malt sweetness, black dried fig, raisin, prune, burnt toast, slightly spicy Belgian phenolics. Front of palate finds roasted malt acridity mixed with dark and caramelized malt sweetness, Belgian nutmeg-like phenolics, and cocoa powder. Mid-palate finds plenty of roasted malt, dark chocolate, spicy and slightly nutmeg-like Belgian yeast phenolics, slight vanilla, and dried black fig and prune esters. Back of palate picks up roasted malt with a slight caramelized sugar undertone, nutmeg-like Belgian yeast phenolics, and very mild ethanol as the beer warms. Aftertaste is of acrid, darkly roasted malt with substantial dark chocolate, which is balanced by sweetness from caramel malt, a bit of black dried fig, and Belgian yeast phenoics.

Beer is heavy-bodied, with medium-low levels of carbonation, resulting in a light fizziness that very quickly transitions to a foamy, soft, and smooth mouthfeel. Ethanol warmth can be mildly felt from mid-palate on, but is mild and generally pleasant and appropriate. Closes quite dry, with massive amounts of stickiness coating the mouth and lips.

A- Thick black pour, thick frothy tan head that leaves sticky lacing.

S- Roasted malts dominate the nose, but the Belgian yeast comes through to provide a spiced bread aroma with a hint of dried fruit.

T- The classic yeti flavors are there, big roasty malts are up front. The Belgian yeast adds some spicy, fruity flavors that come in about halfway through the taste and not the finish.

M- Thick and rich, full bodied, medium carbonation.

O- My least favorite of the variants, but still a good beer. The Belgian yeast addition is interesting, but I do not think it improves the beer.

Dark black with a 1/2 finger of mocha foam, with good retention and lacing. The aroma has chocolate, dark roasted malt, and some dark fruit.

The taste has chocolate, dark roasted malt, dark fruit, and Belgian Yeast, which I did not pick up in the aroma. Sweet, with a little bitterness from the dark roasted malt for balance. The Belgian yeast is different, and there are also some herbs. Interesting, and different.

Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. The alcohol is well hidden for 9.50 % abv. The aftertaste is both sweet, and bitter from the dark roasted malt. A well made beer.

Here we have another great beer from the Great Divide. And who does not love a robust imperial stout? The Yeti has so much to offer; from the beginning, as it pours out into a pitch black body beneath a chunky beige head, the thirsty Beer Advocate has much to anticipate. Once poured, the Yeti emits an initial waft of grape juice that fades into plum and cocoa powder. Once it hits the tongue, this beer lacquers the palate with a wooly coat of roasted malt, punctuated by sharp bits of fruit, clove and cinnamon, all of it empowered by the ubiquitous Belgian yeast that leaves the mouth dusted with subtle chalkiness.

And yeti, despite an intimidating 9.5% abv, in conjunction with the abovementioned details, the Yeti seems to maintain some surprising smoothness that allows this imperial stout rendition to come off as a sessional quaff – perhaps, the famed Yeti is some sort of impish hybrid. And yeti … this is one good beer.

A bomber, bottled on 6/8/12. Poured into a chalice.

Overall - This beer started off hot (too much alcohol), but mellowed as I drank the bomber over about 2 hours (two pours, kept bottle in fridge inbetween). An enjoyable beer. I like this particular belgian twist on the Russian Imperial style. A really good beer that I would buy again. Proud to have these in my cellar and serve to my friends.

A - Poured black opaque with a one-finger rocky dark tan head (sort of the color of foamy chocolate milk). Average lacing. Lots of heavy sediment in this bottle. I accidently poured the sediment into my second glass. Due to the heavy nature of the sediment it went almost immediately to the bottom of the glass without clouding the beer.

S - Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, hints of alcohol, faint spicey notes.

T - Roasted malt, sugary (maybe fruity) sweetness, hints of bourbon. Not much, if any, coffee notes in this beer. Nor much bitterness, though a litte in the finish.

MF - Smooth

Poured from a bomber into a half-pint chalice.

A: Hazy, dark brown color with less than one finger of diminishing light beige foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass.

S: Earthy roast is stretched by separate and distinct toastiness that rounds out the malt qualities. Faint fennel seed suggests Belgian yeast influence. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins off-dry, with nutty yeast-affected roast that extends into the middle. Yeast phenolics are subtle, vegetal, against the dominant roast. The finish features an odd combination of meaty as well as minty qualities. No alcohol is detected.

M: Medium viscosity, mostly balanced but slightly syrupy on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: Surprisingly approachable for a big experimental beer, its mellow Belgian yeast influences find a natural home amidst the heavy roast. This may be one of the friendliest Yetis encountered so far.

The smell is a bit fruity and yeasty along with a touch of roastyness and a bit of chocolate.

The flavor is a nice blend of roasty and choclate stout flavors along with a light bit of sweet dark fruits and a mellow underlying bit of coffee and anise.

Bomber shared with MrKennedy and danieelol, and courtesy of the former.

Jet black with a dark tan head, fairly thick set but only modest retention.

Coffee and nutty roasty character, stewed plums and chocolate brownie. Mellow Belgian yeaty edge.

Flavours are a bit one dimensional. Chocolate cake, cola, molassess and prunes.

Fairly thick and silky with lowish carbonation.

Bottled on 6-17-11.

Black in color. Pretty quick dark tan colored head. This recedes to nothing. Looks like an RIS with ore carbonation.

Dry roasted, somewhat burnt malt aroma with soft fruity, yeast undertones. Makes me think of Belgian beer/coffee/chocolate mix.

Dark chocolate and coffee with some yeasty dryness and an oily texture. Pretty unique palate for sure. Lots of dark roasted malts that make for classic Yeti RIS. Smooth, mellow finish, but maybe a little thin in body towards the end. Great warmth as the flavors and alcohol linger. Good sipper worth buying again.

look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured semi-anxiously from a bottle dated 06/07/12 into a 12oz. snifter...giving way to a medium-body, a little less burly then anticipated. Pleasantly hearty lacing crowned with marginal Werthers Original foam. The nose is predominant with a slightly stale bready, sour white fruit essence though this could merely be Great Divide's 'special' Belgian yeast strain in full command. On the other end are deep, almost astringent notes of steamy espresso. Mouthfeel is medium after initial pour but as the brew adjusts to a higher temperate climate there is some gain in viscosity which I appreciate, while a lower carbonation value remains a steady constant. Upon consumption, there is low-level heat customary to a basic 9.5% abv centric to imperial stouts which is preceded by a duality of wide-awake coffee roasts and earthy, open-air, charred malts. Overall, I was a bit underwhelmed with this one. However, glad to know that I've tried it and imagine the other Yetis are significantly more palatable. I do applaud Great Divide for their adventurous spirit here but am not wholly convinced that this particular brew is one they can hang their hats upon. That being said, I will try this again if they continue to produce this line as I'm curious if the bottle I purchased may have been qualitatively compromised due to heavily halogen-lit and variable degrees of exposure within Lou's Liquors. In other news, I could have bought a goddamned 4-pk of insurmountable Founders Breakfast for the cost of this bomber. So it goes.

Yeti with fruity esters, pear, apple, and just citrus notes. Just as dark and cream as the normal, but unlike the oaked versions this lacks. A bit beer with all the fun of the normal with a weird fruit cock tail left in it. Not really up to the Yetie standard.

Appearance is the same as the rest of the yetis. Thick, black, and minimal head. Nose is deep and roasty with bakers chocolate, earthy hops, and a touch of Belgian yeast. Taste is a lot less roasty than the other variants with notes of bubblegum in the background. Mouthfeel feels a little lighter tha. The rest of the yetis, still thick and mellow carbonation. Overall, this is my least favorite variant of yeti, but still mighty tasty.
