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.

(sampled at the alesmith ba decadence release.black body with a thick mocha like black head that leaves nice webbing on the glass.the aroma is identical to a nice mocha cappuccino.unfortunately this is where the beers good characteristics stop.the flavor has a funky "burnt" coffee flavor to it that dominates the rest of the beers good qualities.damn shame to cuz this could of been something great.

22oz pry-top brown glass. Bottled Feb. 13 2009. Appearance: Deep black with brown around the edges, light tan head, leaving sparse spotting. Nose: Lots of bitter espresso notes, vanilla way out when you really breathe in. Smells like a coffee shop that roasts their own, or maybe the coffee isle in a grocery store. Palate: Medium- to full-bodied. Lots and lots of dark roast coffee grounds up front, in the middle and on the finish. There’s some mild tempering from the oak, a little vanilla, dried creamer feel in the middle. Some earthy, dried leaves notes on the finish, and some green coffee bean flavors, too. Notes: Gotta say, I prefer the Oaked Yeti to all the Yeti’s so far. This is a little too coffee ground tasting/feeling, a little too bitter (from the coffee), and a little too simple. Texture and flavors a little overdone.

Beautiful thick tan head that seemed to stick around forever. Amazing balance of oak, choc and espresso none overpowered the other. Somewhat high abv but couldnt even notice it. Excellent and would recommend to anyone. Thanks to Steve for making me drink this at WOB.

2/11/2009: Oak Aged Espresso Yeti has an aroma is hoppy with a some subtle coffee. It is nearly black in color with with a minimal tan head. In general I would describe the aroma as "green." The flavor is similar: hoppy, bitter, and dark malts with soft coffee in the finish. To be honest, I don’t get much oak or espresso out of this and it is a stretch to all it Yeti, but it could be because this was THE LAST of the keg. There is a ground coffee presence, but in general, I am disappointed with this beer. It seems really green, so bitter, not enough body, and is lacking in depth. I personally think that this beer is too young and would benefit from being aged in a bottle for a year or so. I am actually glad that I only ended up with a half growler of this...

Partial growler fill from Party Town in Florence, Kentucky. Rating #86 for this beer.

The Yeti in all its forms is my all time favorite Imperial Stout. I consider myself lucky to share the planet with its greatness. The Espresso just adds another layer of depth to this wiley creature. I was lucky enough to taste some of the first test batches at the Great Divide tasting room and I’m very impressed with Bryan and crew’s ability to capture the magic in a bottle. Don’t fear the yeti. Ride the snake.

Bottle courtesy of gibby. Pours a dark brown to black color with a thick and creamy tan yellow head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of nuts, roasted malt, ripe dark fruit, burnt caramel, floral hops in the background. Flavor is sweet and floral with notes of floral hops, chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, some hints of coffee. Generally medium to full body with a malty finish. The oaky-coffee notes really didnt come through in this one.

Beutiful thick black pour with a thick chocilate milk head which sticks to the glass. Aroma coffee, vegetal, oak, malt. Thick, coating, warming and lingering. Taste is just adds to the experience: layers of layers of oak, expresso, hops, sweetness, cocoa. Hell yeah!

The aroma has leather, earth, rubber, molasses, burnt malt, wood, coffee, and chocolate. The appearance is a very nice dark brown almost black color with a large tan head. The Flavor is like the aroma. The palate is not quite average for the style. Overall it is to style but I don’t really like it.
