It's this time of year that I am able to slow down. The temperatures start to drop, the days get shorter and I am able to do more blogging. Yesterday, I was hanging with the Beach Brewers gang at Wine World and grabbed four pack of Great Divide's Yeti Imperial Stout.
Needless to say, this is one of those nights when you really want something malty and smooth. At 9.5% ABV, this stout has a very balanced malt bill. With a big roasty character that fades into some rich caramel and toffee notes, this beer will hit the spot of any beer drinker on a nice chilly night. The flavors don't stop with the malts. This beer finishes with a really nice hop character. Weighing in at 75 IBUs, you can really taste the hops in the end.
Yeti is a very complex but well balanced beer. I will go on to say that this is one of the best Imperial Stouts out there.
