COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A generous infusion of Denverís own Pabloís 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. Itís official, you can now have Yeti with breakfast.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2009 How I couldnít love an espresso oak aged stout, Iím not sure, and this didnít disappoint. Aroma of chocolate, espresso, malts, maple, and brown sugar, but with a little bit of a burnt aroma. Medium carbonation, a bit surprising for a stout. The flavor starts with the espresso, moves into caramel and then the bitter hoppy finish.

A deep, rusty brown body, wholly opaque, with a dark tan head. Mahogany in depth and mood. Scent of coffee, dust, earth, and wood chips. Taste is espresso syrup, roasted malt, coffee, earth, resin, and compost. Overall, itís another amazing, layered, and complex creation for the Yeti brand, and for Great Divide. Keep them coming.

some astringent burntness on the nose, and on the finish stop this from being a 5. the warm soft fuzziness that engulfs the front of the tongue far outweigh any deficiencies. I love to just keep a swig in the front of my mouth and rub my tongue through it.

Bomber in blind tasting, apparently to celebrate the end of my college career. Pours dark brown/black, opaque, and with a substantial brown head. Great lacing, Iím assuming a result of the generous hopping. Aroma has dark coffee initially, followed by sweet dark chocolate, roasts, and some later soapy-hops. On second or third sniff these hops become increasingly present. Flavor starts quite hoppy, with malt sweetness. Mid-palate has bold black-coffee-and-sugar and distinct roasted malt. Finish ends with nice bitterness, additional roasts, and a lingering hop finish. Wow. Coffee, hops, sweet malt, roasts . . . this beer has some of everything. And Iím not sure the final product is as full of pure goodness as either Yeti or Oak-aged Yeti. Perhaps the flavors just clash more then they blend. But overall this beer still tastes excellent, my second-favorite Coffee Stout to date.

Bottle. Pours black as midnight and as ethan has taught me this is good. Pretty nice impy that is relatively dry for the style. Big coffee flavors amidst some light oak, vanilla, and roasted malts. A great beer.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle via trade with oobawa. Nose of wonderful dark chocolate, oak, raisin, espresso and mocha. Pours a thick and creamy coffee brown with a huge creamy medium brown head. Flavors are creamy chocolate, flavorful oak, burnt malt, coffee and a vanilla bean note. Mouth is full and chewy. Alcohol grows through the drink and begins to muddle the flavors. Need to get a few more of these to age to perfection.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Near black color, no light shining through. Excellent beige head, but it fades quickly and leaves nearly no lace. Smells like a malted chocolate milk shake. I detect no espresso or even coffee, but I do note some hop in the background. Rich and thick; slightly oily from the alcohol. Strong dark chocolate flavors. Again, no real coffee/espresso tastes here. The finish and aftertaste features a generous amount of balancing hops to the bittersweet cocoa. This is a deceptively easy to drink Imperial Stout.

Suttree (5186) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Black, with a fat brown head. Really nice aroma - you can definately smell the coffee and oak, plus some cherry and winey notes, too. Very rich palate. Nice mix of coffee and oak flavors, too, although these flavors seem a little at odds with each other. Overall, though its very tasty.

Pours black with a thick brown head. The aroma pours out of this one--huge coffee aroma, one of the strongest Iíve had to date. The mouthfeel is great, with perfect carbonation. Flavor is straight out coffee with just a hint of alcohol burn in the finish. Great brew.
