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.

Ferris (10791) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle - Vintage 2012 - Deep dark coffee roast with some nice chocolate. Jet black brown with a small brown head. Lots of dark chocolate and espresso with some nutty notes. Well done.

Mesjasz (776) - 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 (5487) - 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 (3778) - 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.

1600Eman (11) - Dundee, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2016
Bottle at BrewDog, pours pitch black, funky coffee, caramel liquorice nose. Creamy mouthfeel, slight rubber taste, coffee roast malt, caramel, sweet then slight bitter finish. Nice but expected more, little thin.

coachd (493) - Missouri, USA - APR 17, 2016
Aroma of high quality espresso, oak, vanilla, booze, roast and some lactose sweetness. Appearance is a 5; all Yetis are a 5 with their dense black coloring and brown head of foam. Taste is more of the milk sugar from the aroma, a good amount of espresso but not bitter or overwhelming, oak and vanilla. Very smooth and only has a hint of hop bitterness at the very end. Great aftertaste, very drinkable. Good palate, a little on the thin side for a big Imperial Stout. This may be the best Yeti I have rated yet.

Roasted coffee beans; cacao beans to the nose. Beige head. Absolutely black. The beer is thick and falls with heavy viscosity. Malty, bitter coffee after-taste.

Homer321 (3844) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle. Nose is super rich dark coffee, almost smells bitter. Pitch black with medium colored brown head. Very large in size. Taste is super dark chocolate, bitter, almost ashy. Interesting. A bit over the top and bitter.
