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.

Bomber from Liquid Solutions. Pours opaque brn/blk with a multifinger dark tan head. Strong coffee and chocolate aromas. Medium body with smooth carbonation. The flavor is certainly mocha. The finish is a combo of coffee and darkish chocolate. There’s a fair amount of bitter in the finish, and it’s probably hop, given the strength. Vanilla is detectable with continued sipping.

Bottle at a few months of age.

Deep beautiful brown with red highlights, dark-cream head. Lovely sweet aroma with mocha and oatmeal and molassas, espresso and chocolate. Tons of chocolate and oatmeal cookie in the flavor, coffee in there for sure (though it does veer towards those bottled Starbucks drinks), hops to bitter but not add any untoward citrus or fruitiness. On the sweet side but not absolutely over the top. Full thick mouthfeel without the heat but with enough body that you know this beer means business. Extremely drinkable, accessible, enjoyable impy stout. Mmmm. The wife says it makes a kick-ass beer float. Gotta try that with the next glass.

Big brown head over dark pour. Coffee, peppper and chocolate on the nose. Flavor is rich with espresso and chocolate. Hints of vanilla and with a good bite from the hops. Nice full texture with a nice roasted finish.

Dorwart (2432) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Quite large head of redicuously small and dense bubbles. Dark brown in color and drops slower than the setting sun. Rich coffee aroma with lots of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate and bit of piney hops. Essentilly black in color. Flavor is quite zippy with a good helping of piney hops. Lots of carbon, ash, black coffee, burnt toast and roasted malts. Quite the full flavor and mouthfeel. Lingering piney bitterness and carbon. A very strong and flavorful impy that does not go overboard on the coffee. Pretty well balanced.

Shared by my good friend beardface. this 22oz bottole poured black as night with a thick dark tan head. Aroma was obviously espresso but some sweetness peaking through. Wham! Espresso and chocolate stomp all over your tongue then some oak bite and vanilla smoothness. Oh boy this was great. Thanks Beardface!

Goodgrief (1863) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUL 4, 2009
Pour was dark, with moderate one finger head in my Duvel tulip glass. This was a weird drinking experience. I poured the brew, wasn’t all that fond of it. It reminded me of burnt coffee grounds drenched in rubbing alcohol. I put my glass back in the fridge and came back to it a half hour later. Smooth and creamy with a nice chocolatey base with touches of coffee and oak. The second half of the bottle, however, seemed more like the first quarter of the first glass. So, all in all, I thought it was ok, but for an Imperial Stout, coffee style, I still prefer Southern Tier Jahva to this.

nearbeer (4124) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2009 650 ml, bottled on Mar 6, 2009. Opaque black with a lasting film of soapy foam. Aromas of chocolate chip cookie dough, espresso and liqueur. Tastes are cookie dough, Kahlua, chocolate. Barely dried by some oak, vanilla whiskey and char on the finish. Heavy body is creamy smooth and dangerously drinkable.

Bottle. Sampled with the non barrel aged and barrel aged yeti side by side. Certainly more complex than the regular Yeti, although I liked it less than the oak aged. It seemed to me that the espresso had faded a bit, that there was a touch of an old coffee flavor that was less than desirable. Still the pronounced vanilla and caramel flavors with toasted oak made for a pleasant experience.

Nose is heavy of alcohol, coffee, and loads of oak. Pours black as night with a small tan head. Lots of chocolate up front, slightly boozy, slightly astringent coffee, finishes sweet and slightly chewy.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Very dark with huge brown head. Nice dark, overripe forest fruit aroma. The initial taste is like a cold espresso with a dark beer poured in it. Finished very smooth with some alcohol warmth and a bit of bitter dryness at the end. Pretty good, like OAYIS better.
