Great Divide Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
An onslaught of the senses. It starts with big, roasty malt flavor that gives way to rich caramel and toffee notes. YETI gets its bold hop character from an enormous quantity of American hops.

A-Pours very thick and pitch black. Absolutely no light penetration. Head starts off big, brown, bubbly and beautiful. It dies off to a thin skin of foam and leaves swirls of lacing.

S-Thick Hershey's syrup. Burnt coffee and burnt caramel. Light leather and light anise. A lick of alcohol as well. A rumble of bitter hops too surprisingly enough.

T-The mix of chocolate, coffee and hops makes this a bitter, roasty brute. Dutch chocolate and espresso. Burnt maltiness. Finishes bitter. Light notes of dark fruitiness and black licorice. A bit leathery too. Has a pretty unique flavor.

M-Creamy and full. Boozy but far from offensive. Fudgy and chewy with tons of body. Soft carbonation.

O/D-I can see why this is a classic. Its been around for quite a while but it is definitely a pretty unique RIS. Shocked that I haven't had this until now.
