COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout is a new addition to the Yeti clan. A generous infusion of Denver’s own Pablo’s espresso adds yet another layer of complexity to this beer, combining with the vanilla oak character, intense roasty maltiness and bold hop profile to create a whole new breed of mythical creature. It’s official, you can now have Yeti with breakfast.

Suggested food pairings: Breakfast burrito, eggs Benedict, hash browns, cheesecake, creme brulee.

22 oz bomber, bottled on Dec 22, 2014.
Inky black pour, thick mocha head, sticky lace.
Roasted coffee dominates the aroma, but there is also vanilla, chocolate, charred oak. Flavor is just as good as the aroma. Coffee, sweet vanilla, bitter chocolate, oak, Bourbon.
Creamy mouth feel, well hidden alcohol, nice bitterness coming from the roasted grain and the oak tannins. I should have smoked a Padron Anniversario with this. That would have been an excellent pairing.

ABS (595) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle at rickfifty’s place. Pitch black body. Centimeter thick brown head. Alcohol, wood, smoke, plum, toffee and coffee nose. Coffee, espresso, some vanilla, chocolate, sugar and bourbon, fruit and apple flavour. Very bitter. Thick body. Soft carbonation. Smooth.

Clownoisseur (289) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2015
2013 vintage bottle, pours a dark brown, near black, 1 finger khaki head that fades into some spotty lacing. Aromas are espresso through the roof! Ground coffee, chocolate, vanilla, oak and cereal. Taste is fairly bitter upfront with a shot of espresso getting your attention. Lots of roasted malt, oat and earth make this a pretty chewy beer. A bit more chocolate, char, tobacco and vanilla swirl throughout the backend before a heavy dose of bitter coffee and a slight alcohol sting finish this one off. Solid beer, but not my favorite Yeti.

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark chocolate, coffee with some oak. The taste was of oak with dark chocolate, vanilla, espresso and roasted malt flavors. Very nice.

Really nice. All Yeti i’ve had are awesome. Aroma is dark roast coffee. Very peaty. Appearance is dark black. Foamy brown head. Like carmelizing sugar. Taste is bitter chocolate. Feel is suprisinglt light and airy. Good carbonation for a thick beer. Velvety smooth. Only knock is maybe a touch too bitter in the aftertaste, but other than that, perfect.

Prufrockstar (1216) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Draft at mammoth. Clear garnet pour with basically no head. Aroma: chocolate, oats (because you can smell that, right?). Soft coffee, toast and grains. Taste: lightly sweet, grainy, coffee is weak, moderately roast finish. Full- body, slick texture, average carbonation. Overall: either they’ve been sitting on this keg for awhile, or this is just a disappointing beer. Either way, 1 tick and done.

Danyel (1134) - Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with rich tan head. Aroma is pruney, chocolate, vanilla, chocolate, sweet. Taste is dry, full- bodied, rich, chocolatey, smooth. Overall, a great coffee flavor without being overwhelming, rich, delicious.

kanerjus (52) - orimattila, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2014
paras juomani olut. vahvat maut, espressoa, suklaata, paahto hyvin pehmeää ja hillittyä. runsas ja makea muttei kuitenkaa sokerista tai äitelää mihin tälläiset oluet yleensä sortuvat. 0.66 pullo putoaa ilman että makeus häiritsee vaikken tykkää makeista oluista. aivan fantastista tavaraa. jos jotain parannettavaa väkisin kaivaa niin vaahto ei kestä kovin pitkään ja tuoksussa voisi olla vielä enemmän monimuotoisuutta.
