Brewed by:
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.

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

Appearance: Opaque black, big chocolate colored head.

Smell: Chocolate, roasted notes.

Taste: Dark bitter chocolate, black coffee dominate at first, later tastes included some caramel.

Mouthfeel: Not too heavy.

Drinkability: Pretty strong but the alcohol was not noticeable until later.

A solid imperial stout, nice to see it in 12oz bottles though this tasting was from a 22oz. Quite tasty and not overwhelming like some stouts.

Notes from 09/30/10
Poured into a snifter, bottle date 08/10/2009

A:Pours a jet oil black with a fingers worth of tan head that leaves scattered lacing down
the glass as it is drank down

S:Smells of caramel malt, toffee, chocolate and coffee. Also a slight hop hint in
there as well

T:Up front the malt lay the foreground for the toffee to make way and then a bite
of hops on the back burner, which is rather surprising since this has been sitting
around for over a year. A syrupy coating is left on the palate leaving a desire
to take another sip

M:A thinner body for the style but makes it for good drinkability, a small hint of
alcohol but nothing to overwhelming

D:I really enjoyed drinking this one, was in the mood for a imperial stout and this one
stepped up. Had the basic qualities that you would expect from a brew like this but obviously you can tell they added a lot of hops to the process which I found very enjoyable similar to Night Stalker. With that said I would really like to try the barrel aged versions and expresso/coffee ones as well
