Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout is a new addition to the Yeti clan. 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.

Suggested food pairings: Breakfast burrito, eggs Benedict, hash browns, cheesecake, creme brulee.

Just found my notes on this one. Tried this at Dark Lord Day 09í. Poured pitch black. Smell was bitter coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is much the same, with roast and a big bitter component. Overall, the flavor was quite dry, I was expecting more sweetness out of this one. Nice brew, but was a bit too bitter for my taste.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a rather large light brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of dry espresso coffee with some lightly bitter roasted oats. Taste is also dominated by astringent and dry notes with bitter roasted malt. Espresso is a bit too astringent for my taste but very well done nonetheless. Body is full with light creamy notes and great carbonation with no alcohol showing. Another fine brew from a great brewery that I sometime forget about.

Poured fairly opaque deep brown color with a thin brown head and oily brown legs. The aroma was thick with coffee and sweet roasted malt. earthy notes with some hops. Fresh coffee flavor with nice raosted malt. Hop bitterness on the finish. Warming on the finish with a medium to full body.

Very good stout. It was hanging with some of the Belgium and German beers that we had one night as far as flavor and aftertaste.

22oz Huge thanks to xnoxhatex for trekking this one back from Michigan for me! Pours a perfect oily, but not too thick, black with a great grayish mocha creamy froth. I forgot how strongly hopped GDís yetiís are and I seem to have caught this one right in between. Great enticing aroma, dark dark chocolate, fresh espresso, slightly faded piney hops, lighter oak. Flavor follows aroma, very very very dark bitter chocolate and ashy espresso roast offset by some piney hops that just about to turn 8.5. Not sure if it was just the last batch of oak aged yeti I had, but it was way way too oaky with intense vanilla, that isnít so much present here. Dark bitter chocolate, espresso and hops with a little bit of oak character and thats about it, very good. Nice little alcohol and hop bite in the finish with a lingering bitter chocolate aftertaste. Medium/full bodied, closer to full of course, smoother chunky carbonation with a bit of a fizz 4.5. Solid all around, nobody can hop a big stout like Great Divide. Damn those hops are good... sit on the tongue for a long while... tickles. Thanks Devon!

22oz bottled 02/13/05 - Aroma of vanilla, chocolate covered espresso beans, burnt malts and fresh green hops. Pours black with a huge brown head and great lacing. Flavor is a stronger version of the aroma but not over the top. Palate is incredibly smooth for such an intense brew. Great full flavored and easy drinking beer.

What can I say that hasnít already been said? Itís a near perfect beer, with the oak and espresso flavors abound. Instead of repeating everyone else, Iíll hit the low point: the oak and espresso are a little overpowering near the end. Really now, Iím just nitpicking, this beer is the jam.

2009 Bottle - thanks sigma23. Pours a very dark brown with a thick, creamy brown head. Lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is rich with espresso and cocoa. Some lighter vanilla and barrel notes. The taste is huge with espresso, roast, more chocolate than the aroma would suggest, and vanilla. The oaky barrel notes were a nice compliment. More espresso in one of my favs means is certainly a good, if not great thing!
