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.

Dangerous beer! Be warned! Pours luxurious black with deep brown head that has a sexy contrast. Aromas of espresso (of course), baker’s chocolate, and marshmallow are present. Sipping through the generous head is a lot like sipping espresso through the creamy crema - quite a sensory experience. Viscous body, dark roasted coffee beans, wet coffee paper filter, and slight chalky component are noticed on the palate. Finish is very long and roasty. Very drinkable for the style.

Deep black pour with dark brown head. Coffee aroma hits you during the pour.. The head is thick, like a frothy dessert. Taste is complex- roasted malt, coffee, slightly burnt malts, vanilla, wood. Leaves a lasting great taste in the mouth.- has a bit dryness, some sweetness, all around great taste.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2011 Rerate: 2011 sampling showed no vegetal components, or even a notable contribution from hops. Mainly the aroma and flavor were dominated by the coffee and heavy caramel. Quite good and a pleasure to drink. Will up the rating from 3.7 to 4.1. Weird smell. There’s certainly a vanilla-ey oak, chocolate and maybe some coffee. It also seems a bit vegetal, like stewed green beans or asparagus. Further in there’s some burnt char woodiness. Wow, very smooth and rounded in the mouth, but then the weird vegetal stuff comes back in the flavor, leading to a moderate astringency towards the middle, with a long slightly bitter oaky finish. I can get a little more coffee in the flavor but its still buried in there. Impressed with the palate but the aroma/flavor combo just leaves a bit to be desired, and its more one-dimensional than you’d expect. Maybe its because Yeti is already a pretty hoppy stout, the herbal nature of them hops is clashing with the coffee oak to create that weird vegetal character? As dark as ever though, with a heavy brown head and good lacing.

Oily black color with a nice thick chocolate looking head. Noticeable espresso in the aroma but not overpowering. Also a good dose of chocolate and a hint of smoke. This one’s not as woody as the oak yeti but there is a wood presence. The espresso is there and there’s a solid dark chocolate presence as well. I can dig it.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2009
22 Oz bottle purchased at Rozi’s in Lakewood. Big foamy head on this stout. Woah momma is it big time foam. The aroma is actually not that relevant. It just smells like a mild stout. No special oak or coffee busting through there, I though my nose was broked. However, the flavor brings it home. The espresso adds this nice little layer to the flavor, but does so at the expense of the a little balance. This is like a drunken 3-way teeter-totter of oak, espresso and sugary stoutness. Not a bad beer, but could use a longer resting time with the wood to give it more earthy and less sugary taste. I must say, it sure does go down really well, which is nice considering the amount going on with the beer.
