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.

Bottle @ home. Aged 2011 edition. Opaque black with a nice big brown head. Sweet and roasted aroma with chocolate, vinous raisins, oak, vanilla and coffee. Big mouth feel. Medium carbonation. Overall dry and really roasted taste. Dark fruits, dark chocolate, oak and gentle vanilla. Nice coffee bitter finish and long lasting cocoa & dark chocolate aftertaste. Slso late notes of red fruits. Espresso Flavors might have faded over the years but it’s still a perfect beet.

Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Tastes like dry bitter coffee, dark bittersweet chocolate, ash, smooth alcohol, woody. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like ash, woody, dark chocolate, and some lightly burnt coffee.

SG111 (369) - New York, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottled 01/07/15. Pours pitch black with a beautiful tan/brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and a smokey oak character. Flavor is coffee up front, roasted malts, and bitter coffee finish. The oak is excellent and noticeable, but not as much in the flavor or perhaps finish as the oak aged; however, the coffee adds a brilliant element. Fantastic imperial stout.

Tasted from draft. Pours black with dark brown head. Excellent coffee aroma with some dark chocolate. Taste is similar to aroma. Big time coffee with dark chocolate and some caramel and toffee. Pretty full bodied. Not too drying on the palate. Definitely one of the best coffee stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fantastic imperial stout for coffee lovers. The aroma of coffee is among my favorites, and this stout brings it home. I would have forgot I was drinking beer if not for the roasted malt and faint hop kick.

Pours almost black with brown head. Smells coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel is velvety with medium carbonation. Taste is very balanced hops, caramel, chocolate and coffee. A very nice beer. Ten Fidy and Yeti are now my favorite imperial stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Milk and bitter dark choc, coffee beans, caramel, ash, light booze, hint of grass... Lovely balance. Smooth and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mep3222 (692) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Very strong coffee aroma. Almost like a cup of espresso. Roasted malt, almost has a smoked feel but it think that is coffee. Bitter dry coffee finish. Coffee dominates this one. It is good, don't get me wrong, but very espresso. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours this beautiful black with this tan head. The aroma brings out lovely fruity, chocolate almost close to cherry. The front taste is caramel and cherry & goes into a bitter coffee flavor. The end taste goes into a bitter, vanilla flavor. Surprisingly, it is not a heavy mouthfeel & would highly recommend it.
