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.

Bottle. Pours black with a thick, foamy dark tan head. Aroma of oak, bitter coffee grounds, and sweet roasted malt. Flavor is quite oaky with only mild roasted malt and vanilla. The oak really dominates the flavor and the coffee notes do not really come through. They should rename this beer "Super Oak Aged Yeti." 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

Bottle. Aroma of chocolate, mocha more than straight espresso, earthy hops, oak. Flavor has milk chocolate coming up against oak and bittering hops. Not really enough espresso flavor to me for a beer labeled as such, I feel like I got as much espresso/coffee flavor as I would expect to find in an impy *not* infused with espresso. Hops also seem to detract from the coffee and sweeter chocolate notes and really overpower the finish and aftertaste. Seems the more I drink this and the more I write about it the less I like it...

Thanks to BConley for sharing the bomber. Thick black pour, very motor oil like and a thick tan head. Chocolate, vanilla, oak and espresso aroma, vey complex and very nice. Thick chewy chocolate, oak and vanilla taste. Lots of chocolate milkshake consistency going on, smooth and roasty. Excellent.

Bottle shared by DuffmanSW with Hophead22, courtesy Mikeandi. Pours pitch black with a head the consistency and color of chocolate mousse. Aroma is sweet vanilla, dark fruit, chocolate, slight alcohol and some earthiness. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, vanilla, with a long and dry bitter finish. Palate is smooth as silk with nice soft carbonation. This stuff is boss.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 19, 2009
22oz bottle courtesy of DuffManSW, via mikendi from BA. Super dark pour with a real dark brown, creamy head. Sweet coffee aroma, some chocolate as well. Chocolate, vanilla shot to the mouth right away, some bitterness in the end, very easy to drink as well, quite good.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - APR 18, 2009
22oz bomber served in a snifter. Poured a deep brown/black with about a finger of fine bubbled tan head. Lots of coffee in the aroma also some piney hops. Rich and full bodied. Lots of chocolate and vanilla right off as well as coffee of course. The coffee is not overpowering as in some coffee beers. There is a fair amount of hop bitterness, that shows up in a dry finish. The chocolate and coffee really linger in the finish. To me one of the better coffee stouts. The coffee is not overly bitter. Great flavor from the oak.

BBB63 (6114) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2009
Bottle and served in my Expedition snifter: What a beautiful pour, pitch black with a super creamy head that one normally only gets with nitro or one of those damn widget thingys. The aroma has notes of espresso, chocolate, burnt toast, hazelnut, molasses, some oak and earthy esters, with a hint of piney hops. The taste is initially espresso forward with an overwhelming bitterness before the sweeter malts come about to play. Slightly fruity and lactic as well with a quick dash of oaky dryness upon the finish. Unlike the Beer Geek Weasel this does not have nearly as much depth of palate, the coffee is more dominate here. The mouth feel is silky smooth and the alcohol well hidden (until the morning after hangover). Well done overall and beer geek worthy but I must say I would rather have a regular Yeti or the Oak Aged Yeti over this.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2009
22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a dark, dark brown color with a 3/4 finger thick dark tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is coffee and roasted malt. Flavor is roasted and doughy malt, and coffee. Didn’t get much vanilla. Medium to full body. Finish is bitter and roasty. A nice beer.

scoth (520) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2009
Pours extremely dark brown, completely black in the glass, no light gets in even around the corners. Big puffy two-finger tan head, good, lasting lacing. Fragrant, coffee grounds, bitter chocolate, oak, some dark fruit, and molasses. Thick, velvety body, just a little dry. Sweet and thick up front with dark chocolate, espresso, oak, caramel, and even some notes of leather. As sweet as it is, it’s even more bitter, with some pine and a tiny bit of citrus.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2009
Bottle from Papago. Pours a dark chocolate color with a thick mocha head. Smells of hops and oak. Tastes like this beer was made in a frying pan with flavors of grease, hazelnut, baker’s cocoa, espresso, and faint cream. Harmonizes as the temperature warms. Potent, yet nuanced.
