Overview Great Divide’s Imperial stout comes in a number of limited-release variations, mostly involving oak aging and additional dark ingredients like chocolate or espresso. We tasted the basic bottling—if it’s fair to call a big, complex beer “basic.”

Flavors and aromas Yeti was a big winner with our tasters, starting with the roasty, rich, spicy nose, and following through to the big, dense palate and lingering, pleasant aftertaste. In the mouth there are lightly smoky notes and more intense roast flavors alongside bittersweet espresso and chocolate—though burnt or ashy notes aren’t in evidence here. The lingering finish is full enough to be warmly satisfying.
