Ölbeat 101: Great Divide Yeti

Brewery: Great Divide Brewery
Country: United States
Style: Imperial Stout
Abv: 9,5 %
What about the beer?
Colour is black with a small beige head. Aroma has roasted to charred malts, dark chocolate and black coffee. Taste starts with roasted chocolate malts and a gentle hoppy bite. Strong flavour of charred salty and malty coffee takes over with a note of cocoa. Near the finish hoppy bitterness comes along. Aftertaste has roasty bitterness and a twist of alcohol.

Dark and massive delicious substance. Roasted even charred malts dominate but the taste is perfected with black coffee, cocoa and late bitter hops. Superb and strong Imperial Stout.


Monstrous black brew calls for a - surprise, surprise - heavy metal track. Despite being recorded in the 2010's the song is on its way to becoming a classic. The lyrical theme - a tale of a tyrant who destroys his objectors - kinda fits the mood of  the beer. Would you dare to fight against Yeti?

From the 2013 album Hail to the King, the song was written by M. Shadows, Zacky Vengeance, Synyster Gates and Johnny Christ.
