Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout is a new addition to the Yeti clan.

It’s official, you can now have Yeti with breakfast.

I saved this bottle for several months to share with my brother for when he came into town. I must say that it lived up to my lofty expectations. Pours very black with an almost reddish looking, dark tan full head. Aroma is robust and impressive. It contains plenty of chocolate to go along with oak, licorice, vanilla, and coffee. The taste is very rich chocolate, and lots of it. Perhaps like chocolate cake, however with some coffee and vanilla mixed in. Despite how much chocolate is in here, somehow this really isn’t sweet. And that might be the best part of all with this one. Bitter, especially at the end. Full bodied, as one would expect, with an oily texture. Subtle, yet noticeable carbonation. Alcohol content hides itself well. This certainly doesn’t feel like its as strong as it is. Altogether, this has just about everything that you could hope for in a big beer. Being tasty, well made in every respect, potent without hitting hard, you will really impress most everyone by pouring one of these.

Pours black with a beige head that leaves beautiful lacing. Aroma has mostly coffee, some vanilla in the background. Taste has light sweetness and medium bitterness from coffee. My bottle is from 2014 and the taste has almost no sweetness left. Full bodied with almost no carbonation. Still very enjoyable beer!

ansalon (2733) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2016
Pours black with a low mocha head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, roasted coffee, muscovado sugar, vanilla, oak, slight nutty notes. Taste is roasted and chocolatey with a nice balance between bitterness and sweetness. Mouthfeel is dry yet quite creamy with low carbonation.

Reviewed March 24, 2014. A: Pours a pitch black color. The head is a finger high and dark freakin’ tan in shade. It retains solidly, fading to a thin film in around 3 or so minutes. A bit of lacing is left behind. I love the aesthetic appeal of a dark-ass stout like this. S: Ohhhh yeah. The coffee is definitely here, but nice and subtle (letting it open up will reveal more espresso, natch). There’s also a ton of roast, umami, dark chocolate, and tobacco. I really enjoy the roasted notes of this in particular - it’s gentle and balanced, but also very prevalent. Call me crazy, but I think this is going to taste amazing... T: It starts off very roasty: not just from the coffee, but from the malts, as well. The roast flavors seem to be a touch on the ashy/smoky side - nothing to upset this beer’s balance, though. Right before the swallow, I’m picking up some great dark chocolate notes. Leafy hop bitterness pops up on the finish to meld with some of the irish cream, oak, vanilla, and umami flavors. When it really warms up, it becomes a bit salty, as well. Everything here is in good harmony...actually, this is so good, I kind of don’t want to review this. I just want to drink the hell out of this one. M: I’d call the body "medium-heavy", erring towards heavy when some of the (soft) carbonation fades away. The finish is bitter and dry, but not too bitter or dry. Naturally, it’s not really a chugger. Could care less. O: Last night, I put this bottle in the fridge and said to myself "this will be bitchin’." I was 100% right. This not only tastes amazing, it puts me in a happy place precious few beers can throw me into. Gimme more!

Mesjasz (846) - Lodz, POLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Butelka. Aromat mocno kakaowy, czekoladowy, kawa, lekka wanilia i beczka. Smak dosyć słodki, lekko wytrawny i gorzki. W smaku kakao i kawa, wanilia, lekka paloność. Posmak to cudowne espresso. Ciało pełne, wyklejające, tekstura jedwabista. Świetne piwo.

The_Osprey (5545) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Bomber from Brewdog as ’Great Divide Espresso Oak Aged Yeti’, 9.5%, 3 months old. Thick pour to form an opaque black beer with a big dense foamy brown head. Aroma is strong coffee, floral hops, roasted barley, chocolate syrup. Nice. Body is smooth, rounded, soft carbonation. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, spicy, nice ashy roast, floral hops, woody salty finish. A touch of wood but mostly hops and coffee. Seems to get smoother the more you drink, and you get a vanilla fudge and coffee aftertaste. Overall, there’s no denying this is a top-tier imperial stout. Just a pity it’s a bit expensive.

Garrold (3920) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Bomber. Brewdog, Sheffield. Not far off black. Thin, dense, sticky, light brown head. Leggy and viscous. Handsome beer. Nose has bitter chocolate. Fruity coffee bean. Milky coffee. Some woodiness. Some earthy hop. Taste is woody, earthy bitter. Soft, milky sweetness. Mouthfeel is perfect. Full and silky rich. Chocolate and coffee bean bitterness on the finish. Hugely tasty, and scary easy drinking.
