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.

From the perspective of a coffee snob, this is very well executed coffee beer. The coffee flavor is subtle, but of high quality. The aroma is delightfully deep, a tad smoky and full of dark amber maple syrup. It pours very dark in color with a beautiful reddish head. Flavor is sweet, but not oppressively sweet, easy to drink with a slightly bitter and long lingering aftertaste. Great, delicious beer.

BOLTZ7555 (2958) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2009
Intensely black with HUGE espresso aroma that also includes cocoa, charred wood, and toasted malt. Flavor is aggressive and is an explosion of dark roasted coffee bean. A bit of chocolate, caramel, and oak are also threre. Thick but not as creamy as the BA Yeti...but who am I to complain!!! Still a great brew!!!

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 11, 2009
Bomber. Pours pitch black with a thick 3 finger mocha colored head that lasts and coats the glass like latex paint. The nose is chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. The taste is a huge coffee blast up front with burnt malt, ashy cocoa, vanilla and some bitter hops in the finish. Full creamy mouthfeel. As a rich dark roast lover, this is very good!

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2009
Blackish color with a big coffee aroma that packs lots of roast, espresso, lighter oak, and dark chocolate and really fills the nasal passages. Flavor is roasty & creamy with lots of coffee, some sweetness, chocolate, and a decent bit of oak. Nice, but its not quite at the top of its class (certainly no BGB Weasel)

Bottle. Glad I found some of this the other day in Charlotte. I’d been looking for it for a while now. Pours out a black color with a brown head on it - no shock there. Smell is coffee, roasted malts, espresso, some chocolate, no hops, no alcohol, great smelling beer - reminds me of founders Breakfast Stout. Taste is smooth and bitter, not the hop bitter, but coffee bitter. Roasted smell, thick, and good. Reminds me alot of founders with an added bourbon flavor yet not enough bourbon to be considered the KBS. This beer is good, but it is my new philosophy that not all beers develop over time. Drink this fresh, now, it is as good as it will get. More time and it could turn into a bourbon bomb.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 9, 2009
22 oz bomber. Pours midnight black with a big frothy brown head, and a lot of lacing. Aroma is as the label suggests,espresso, also hints of chocolate. Flavor is similiar, bitter chocolate, light notes of vanilla, strong oak, and of course coffee. Creamy mouthfeel and I definitely could feel the aloohol warmth. The only suggestion is that this beer needs to age for a while, it is still a bit rough around the edges.

jlruthven (588) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2009
22 oz bomber, poured into a tulip glass, just slightly chilled. Pours up a viscous, oily midnight black with dark brown head that lasted forever. Nose is nearly all espresso, with some bitter cacao. Tastes enormously of coffee and the darkest coco, with hints of vanilla, oak, pipe tobacco and leather. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, but this is an otherwise extraordinary brew.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2009
[Bottle] Pours pitch black with a smallish brown head. Aroma is acrid coffee beans, roasted barley, and some vanilla. Flavor is super acrid, lots of bitter chocolate and barley, some vanilla and oak, and the finish is straight up coffee grounds. Super rich mouthfeel, really nice and velvety.
