Brewed by:
Great Divide Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

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

Appearance: Thick black elixir with chocolate ice cream-like foam cascading over the glass. Very good lacing. Some of the darkest foam I've ever seen.

Smell: Good balance between chocolate and espresso. Some fruit too.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Roasted coffee with a more than a hint of chocolate. Extremely creamy mouthfeel...almost like a cappuccino.

Overall Drinkability: Definitely makes me want to find more Russian Imperials.

A-Pitch black pour with a copper-brown 1 finger head. Quick dissipation but it coats the entire glass as I drink it. Minimal lacing

S-Raw oats. Malted hops. Dark chocolate and burnt oak wood. Rich caramel and a lingering alcoholic twinge.

T-Follows the nose, mostly. Heavy dark chocolate. A little dark coffee. Malty finish.

MF-Very smooth. Like extra thick whole milk.

O-Fantastic brew. One of the better Imp. Stouts I've ever had. Very complex. Has the best appearance of a beer I've ever seen.
