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.

Pours the same as all the Yetis. Aroma is downright sharp with a lot of grapefruit and leafy hops, with some fresh coffee breans and cocoa (truffle dust). To me, this tastes much better than it smells with dark chocolate, milk, coffee, some vanilla and charred nuts. Fnishes with coffee bean, heavy roast, and toasted peanuts. Pretty hea y mouthfeel, but definitely creamy and lush. Loved it basically, expect the aroma. Too hoppy!

Pours a deep motor oil black with a decent tan head that coats the glass the entire way down. Aroma is of bitter chocolate and burnt malt. Flavor is of bitter chocolate, dark roast coffee with a creamy palate and a bit of astringincy in the finish. Fantastic beer. Leaves a long lasting coffee aftertaste.

Draft at Aromaís. I always thought the old version of yeti was a little light bodied. Espresso does the trick and adds a nice component to this brew.

Bomber, feb 13 09 bottling date. Pours very black with a long sustaining dark tan head. Aroma shows a bunch of hops and a bunch of oak. Reminds me a bit of Oak Aged Unearthly thereís so much hops here. Coffee is not too noticeable underneath the hops and wood but some chocolate is. Flavor is intensely tannic, woody, bitter and astringent. Way overdone. The finish has a nice chocolatey milkshake thing going for it but the wood up front is overwhelming. I honestly donít get that much coffee from this. This might be good with some age but right now itís kind of a mess.

22oz bottle. Pours black with a large mocha head. Dark chocolate, coffee, and espresso dominate the aroma. The flavor is bitter coffee and hops with oak, vanilla, bourbon, and roasted malt. Finish is bitter and dry with medium astringency. Full bodied and slightly fizzy. The espresso seems to add a lot of bitterness, but not much deep roast flavor. A tasty beer overall.

This one had such a possibility of sucking hard with all of the things it was trying to do but amazingly they pull off all the ingredients and flavors here well. Aroma is where the chocolate and cocoa comes in. The flavor gives you the espresso at first with that fading to some vanilla. Next up is some heavy roasted malt and all of that finishing up with some bittersweet chocolate sweetness. Smooth and delicious and full bodied and tasty.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2011 Last brew of the Richmond Gathering, 2/13/09 bottling. Black with a decent head. Coffee aroma. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, and espresso notes complement. Coffee unfortunately adds some acidity to this that I found detracted from the overall enjoyment. RERATE: 2/6/11. Glad to get to try this as a full bottle without my palate blown out. 12/20/?? bottling - maybe 2010 would be my guess? Black with a large deep brown head. Aroma is coffee, slightly burnt, a hint of chocolate. Flavor is a match, but hops definitely come through on the end with a fairly robust pine note. Not nearly as acidic as I remembered, and the hops had been lost before. I have to say that the hops didnít quite hang with the espresso, and actually overwhelmed it a bit in the end. But not bad at all. 1 point higher for aroma, everything else stays the same.

Bottle thanks to Odeed. Black with a creamy brown head. Espresso, roastiness, and dark chocolate aroma. Tastes of dark roasted espresso, cereal grain, oak, more coffee and a woody vanilla and bitter chocolate taste to the dry finish. Quite good.
