Yeti

Review - Great Divide Brewing Company's Yeti Imperial Stout

"Great Divide's Yeti Imperial Stout is an onslaught of the senses. An almost viscous, inky-black brew, Yeti opens with a massive, roasty, chocolate, coffee malt flavor that eventually gives way to rich toffee and burnt caramel notes. Packed with an enormous quantity of American hops, Yeti's hop profile reveals a slightly citrusy, piney, and wonderfully dry hoppy finish. 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs)." -- Great Divide Brewing Co.

We saved this beast for the last beer of the evening. We knew that this beer was high on the rictor scale and we were up for the challenge. The initial black oil pour settled into a murky black body with a small brown fully diminishing head with fair lacing. The nose was excited with the sweet malt aroma emitting from our glass with hints of coffee and light tasted malts. The alcohol presence was not hiding. If it was any stronger, it would have slapped us silly. The initial harsh chocolaty sweet taste caused my palate to water and eventually lightened to a moderately sweet taste for a long duration on the palate. The medium to heavy creamy body was lively carbonated leaving the palate wanting more. It didn't contain a harsh alcohol taste, but you could taste the strong hints of hops. We pared this offering with a dark Cote'd Or Belgian chocolate and we not disappointed. This definitely rivals the Smuttynose Imperial Stout.

This just gave me the chills - Amber. This is an amazing stout. We will definitely be stock piling this beer if we are able to find this in the store Sean.
