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.

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!

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 (4835) - 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.

BOTTLE: looked reddish/black when poured in front of a bonfire! Nice roasty sweet nose, vanilla/chocolate/coffee roast on taste. More carbonated than silky smooth, and a little thinnish on the body, but excellent flavor.

Opaque black pour with brown head. Aroma of heavy coffee and light smoke, with some booze and hops. Flavor is coffee, coffee, and coffee. Great duration, syrupy mouthfeel.

22 oz bomber from Bier Stein that I bought to surprise my friend Leems with at our Memorial Day camping trip. This is one of the darkest pours I’ve ever had, with a thick, swirling mocha colored head. Aroma is hefty on the espresso, but also has chocolate and vanilla and some light notes of oak. Flavor is flat out delicious espresso with chocolate, roast and vanilla with light oak thrown in as well. The mouthfeel is extremely creamy and the whole experience is like an orgasm in your mouth. If it was cheaper I’d buy this one all the time!

Bomber from Sam’s in Durham. Dark as a dungeon lit by a single flickering candle; the nose emanates an olifactory yin-yang of vanilla bean and baking chocolate swirling above wet, dank pine bark. A blanket of bitter espresso snuffs out malt sweetness, letting only sticky hop oils escape to the light of day. A beautiful mongrel.
