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 shared by iowaherkeye and firmbuttstone. Poured an opaque black color. The head was thick and dark brown with an orange tint. Smelled of chocolate, light roasty malt, molasses, and a hint of booze. Medium to full boded and very roasty with mild to moderate bitterness. I anise, citrus, and chocolate. There wasn’t much in the way of distinct coffee, though. Delicious nonetheless.

Bomber. Jet black, oily, thick with a nice thick dark tan head. Big coffee nose and flavors balanced out with a noticeable hoppy bitterness, mostly on the finish. Very warming and definitely a slow drinker as it’s a lot to take in. The flavors are so sharp and biting that they do cloud each other more than I’d like. I’m thinking a year or so on this and it’d be even better.

pours ruddy brown with small tan head..heavily roasted beer with a strong coffee and coffee aroma with burnt malts and resinous hops..these elements smash the palate and deliver a satisfying coffee stout..oak does not subdue the essentials in this beer, and the espresso is an excellent addition to the already-amazing oak aged yeti

bottle at Ft Wayne tasting - Pours black with a moderately thick tan head. It smells of roast malt and coffee. The flavor is full of vinuous hops with the dark roast malt and coffee coming through strong too. It has a lingering sharp bitterness and a full body. It’s a very good beer, but it seems young. I think it would benefit from a couple years of aging.

Black pour with tan head and lace. Burnt coffee and oak aroma. Chocolate, coffee, with a medium bitter finish that is a combination of hop malt bitter. Full bodied creamy mouthfeel and good carbonation. A very damn special beer.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2009 Brewed in the USA....... Courtesy of The Capt, thanks again. Pours a wonderful black color with a thick medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and a hint of vanilla. The taste has a burnt wood flavor with dark malts, chocolate and espresso notes. The mouthfeel is medium in body with a nice lingering bitter finish. Another winner from Great Divide !!!!

OMG! Da BOMB! Top of the line man. Everything is perfect. Aroma, color, head job, all superb and expressive. The mouthfeel is dazzling. Effers to malt ratio in balance. Huge and very strong. Not sweet at all. Just a sublimely balanced specimen summoned by all beer gods and shoved forefront. This one gets the Nobel prize in my book. Eat this with a chorizo and egg burro with a few Herdez jalapeños.

Bottle shared by TheCaptain, thanks a ton Mark.Oh this was such wonderful stuff. A black pour topped by a dense, creamy khaki head. Smells of dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Taste has the same traits only not in the same proportion, chocolate and vanilla play a very large role. The wonderful flavor paired with the thick, smooth mouthfeel makes it the beer equivalent of a mocha milkshake. This stuff was so good it made me a bit psychic, I could literally see myself in the future drinking this over and over again. Great Divide has a winner on its hands here.

Thanks eagle. Poured a dark black color and head a good size head. Aroma was of very good coffee and vanilla. Flavor was much the same, good bitterness to it solid vanilla and only a slight oak. This is a good one for sure.
