COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Large bottle. Had to try this after enjoying the (non-espresso) Oak Aged Yeti and really enjoying it. This one too is extremely good with alot of complex flavors. I think I really do need to drink this side by side with the other Yetis to taste the differences. I think I may have actually liked the non-espresso slightly better but they are both very good.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2009
A beautiful pour, black and heady... Great mouthfeel, but too damn hoppy and bitter for a Coffee Stout. The Coffee is muddled with the lupulin bitternss causing disjointed flavors on my palate. I want to dig it but I donít. I truly like the GD beers; however the massive amount of bittering hops fully destroyed the espresso presence, simply, too much boldness in one bottle.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours black with a brown colored head. Aroma is dark choclate, roast, coffee, maybe ahint of oak. Flavor is choclate, coffee, burnt sugar, vanilla, metallic, hitn of oak. Palate is full bodied, mild carbonation, finished massively bitter, almost too bitter for my liking. Found this annoying metallic taste throughout that I just couldnít overlook, and distracted from the beer. Decent, but flawed IMO.

Pours solid black with a thick brown head. Cocoa and roast aroma. Very heavy feel with a lot of bitter espresso and also a sweet creamy milk finish.

bgburdman9 (858) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2009
After my first bottle shattered on the floor this one poured very black with a small tan head. Aroma was roast, light coffee, and some oak coming through. I dont know if i am a lot more sensitive to the oak flavor in this but i found it way overpowering. It seemed to totally ruin the beer for me. I really wanted to like this one. The lingering taste on the tongue was just not that palatable to me at all.

Cornfield (5541) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2009
Bomber from Liquor Stop in Highland, Indiana: This pours out a thick brown liquid that turns almost black in the glass and is topped by a tall light brown head full of all sizes and shapes of bubbles. The glass gets coated in pastey sheets of thick lace. It smells like strong coffee and alcohol. Fortunately, the flavor gets more complex. It welcomes the addition of bitter chocolate, charred wood, roasted malt, anise, and a suggestion of vanilla. There a sharp astringent jab at the back end thatís not very welcome... at least to me. It finishes on a bittersweet chocolate note with a burnt nut bitterness and a low alcohol burn. Interesting, but unbalanced.

I had this beer at the Great Divide Brewery taproom in Denver on 4/5/09. It had a strong coffee smell but mild coffee taste. Incredible body and flavor. One of the best stouts I have ever had!

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2009
Rich, dark creamy brown color with a molasses hue. Little carbonation. Twinkling of chocolate, espresso, and oak in the aroma--all in balance. A deeper sniff yields ether. Flavor is full of ethyl alcohol, and roast chocolate. A dollop of chocolate covered espresso bean hatches on the palate. Oak and pinches of vanilla on the finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2009
Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Pub this beer poured thick, black and oily with a medium sized brown head. The aroma was strong, bitter and roasty with coffee and floral hops prominent. The flavor was sweetish, roasty, malty and almost gritty with a rough espresso element. Hints of chocolate, smoke and ripe fruits intermingle. The finish turned a bit dry with a long roasty coffee presence. The body was fairly thick. The alcohol was well hidden. Well done.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2009 22 oz. bottle from Coasters. Aroma is pure espresso. Taste is amazing. Alcohol is very well hidden (as long as it is chilled). Belongs in the same discussion as Breakfast Stout and Speedway Stout. An absolutely incredible beer...I have just tried a bottle of this that I purchased 6 months ago. With coffee/espresso beers I donít normally like them aged for too long because it typically tastes like stale coffee. In this case, however, everything that was great about it when it was fresh is still true. An absolute homerun with this one.
