Full bodied with velvety smooth feel. Super dark. Big malt followed by big hop presence. Just a fabulous blend! I've had a many big name beer and I'd say Yeti is better than any other stout I've had, even all the seasonal specials. A Powerful classic thick rich Russian Imperial Stout.

One of the best stouts I've ever had. I do not find it to be boozy at all.

Very nice double stout - thick dark black color with some tan head and lingering lacing. Smells of dark chocolate, dark roast coffee and a little malt. Tastes similarly, along with caramel, molasses and some vanilla. Nice smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel and alcohol is well hidden despite high ABV. Nice mild carbonation. I do wish the hoppy presence was a little bolder though. All in all, a great offering from a brewery I will have to try more of!

Great Divide and I haven't exactly been friends before. Not because we haven't tried, it just hasn't pulled through. But the Yeti has been watching me forever, and I finally caved to it. Poured into a tulip, this thing is pitch black with a thick tan head that looked beautiful, receding down to a foam cap with some great lacing. Nose is like a bag of roasted malts beating you down, chocolate and coffee grounds join in on kicking your ass. Taste is dark and roasted, coffee shines through and the chocolate notes are on the sweeter side, there's a huge grassy/earthy hop profile that makes itself almost too known. Fills your mouth, gives a little carbonation and leaves you with bitterness and a little bit of booze to burp up later. I'll keep drinking these and the variants and Great Divide will find a friend in me.

It’s an acquired taste, I drank two of these and got hammered. It’s good though, felled great too. Great for winter time, definitely good before bed

$12.99 per six pack at Wegmans
L. Dense black pour, inch tall dark tan head reduces slowly to a thick cap which stays and leaves a heavy lacing.
S. Cocoa, creamy coffee, dark roasted caramely chocolatey malt, more milk chocolatey as it comes closer to room temp.
T. Bitter cocoa, dark caramel, dark chocolate, distinct coffee flavor in there between the deeply roasted malts and the grassy/piney bitterness of the hops, caramel/chocolate finish balanced by the hoppy bitterness which increases in the aftertaste. Delicious.
F. Full mouthfeel, noticeable carbonation, only slightly warming, sticky/resinous in the end.
O. Full of flavor and balanced, I'm really enjoying it. I'd certainly have it again, especially considering it's price compared to other Russian Imperial Stouts of this quality. Cheers!
