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.

bomber. Pours inky black with a nice, light-brown head which lingered. Nose is going wow! This has a wonderful aroma of intense espresso and sweet chocolate. Taste is an espresso bomb with chocolate. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with hop bitter finish. Yum! Loved this.

Very thick black pour, with a sudsy lace - intense roasty and bitter coffee aroma, with some sweet, heavy malts underneath, and some hints of boozy warmth - low carbonation, slick mouthfeel - very rich, and moderately warming - the coffee is very present, but not overly bitter - a lot of sweet vanilla and roasty character - gets a bit overly bitter in the finish - very heavy, and a great sipper.

nolankowal (932) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Bomber. black pour with a mocha head. Aroma of vanilla, wood, roast, coffee, dark chocolate, and a bit of booze. Flavors where vanilla, oak, chocolate, light raspberry, coffee beans. Thick body, roasty, bittersweet, nutty, savory. Reminds me a good bit of KBS with less bourbon characteristics ...perhaps not as hot either. Pretty tasty and more interesting than the regular OA Yeti.

It is a great beer without doubt. Rich and creamy with just the right carbonation. A real pleasure on the palate. Maybe just a tad too hoppy. Interesting experiment: try putting a little bit of vanilla ice cream in your mouth and then take a sip. you will totally taste the espresso. Pretty amazing.

Bomber thanks to aplusbreaks, thanks a ton man. Pours a dark brown color with a large mocha colored head, thick and creamy. The aroma just spilled out; loads of coffee, rich and milky. The flavor was initially a ton of coffee also, again rich and milky. The woody flavors are subdued but present. A light metallic and fruitiness also. Very rich and creamy altogether and more of a shot of espresso than anything else, which is fine. A light alcohol burn and it leaves your palate with a bitter hop which is overwhelmed by sweet and creamy espresso. Let me say that the original Yeti is maybe my favorite beer, this one is very nice and for what it is, excellent.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Pours a dark black color with a small brown head. Nose of expresso, dark chocolate, roasted malt, good hop character and touch of vanilla. Initial taste is of creamy roasted malts, splashing expresso, vibrant refreshing hop character. Mid palate displays dark chocolate, vanilla and some alcohol spiciness & warmth. Palate is medium to full bodied and velvety smooth. Above average palate duration and good head retention. This is was very enjoyable.

Bottle. Dark black pour, little carbonation with coffee and vanilla aroma. Flavor was creamy and rich espresso, mellow and bitter roasted coffee aftertaste. Well done beer.

Bottled. Opaque black with a rocky brown head. Nose is subdued for as big as this is, with hops and alcohol being dominant. Bitter chocolate and coffee, with hints of vanilla, with warming alcohol.

aplusbreaks (330) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours black with a 2 finger coffee colored head. Fantastic retention and lacing. Aromas of espresso, coffee, dark chocolate, roast and a touch of vanilla. Flavors are very much the same, lots of coffee/espresso semi sweet chocolate, heavy roast, and a long lingering bitter coffee flavor. Palate is full bodied and rich. No much layering going on, just a bunch of espresso, and Im ok with that right now.
