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.

Aroma is strong roasted coffee, vanilla, maybe a little wood. The appearance is anopaque jet black, moderate tan head. The flavor again is dominated by the coffee beans, roasty, with some vanilla, and cream. More of the oak comes through as it warms. The finish is mainly coffee flavor, some hops linger in the background. (You really need to like coffee to like this.) A very good brew overall, not as enjoyable as the ordinary Yeti.

Bottle pours pitch black with a thick tan head that clings to the glass as you drink it. Aroma was a bit disappointing. Subtle bitter chocolate, coffee, and grain. Nothing really stands out in the aroma. The rest of this beer shines. Medium mouthfeel that is somewhat silky and has a sharp spicy bite from the carbonation and hops combo. Flavor has very strong coffee, bitter chocolate, bitter hops, some vanilla in the background, and finishes with an alcohol presence. This is a solid brew.

A thick, viscous black glob limped into my glass. A moderate tan head formed and slowly collapsed upon itself. The aroma was full on, hardcore espresso. There was chocolate, roasted malts and a bit of alcohol sneaking out at the end. The flavor was espresso, milk chocolate, vanilla and earthy hops or oak or something woody. A faint wisp of warming alcohol that was kind of nice. The mouthfeel was very full-bodied, thick and chewy.

22, capped and foiled. Pours jet black with a dense, rocky, sudsy, surging, comically massive burnt-tan head thatís actually bleeding more over into pumpkin tones. Not exactly the color of the lettering on the label, but closer to that than to the color of the head of a guinness, for example. And soooo thick. You know those tourist things you used to see at gift shops, full of sand and oil in a frame, and you tilt the frame and the sand moves around? The head moves like one of those things. It might seem like well, hey, plenty of stout heads move that way, but you can actually see clear delineations between head from the first pour and head from subsequent pours when youíre getting a glass ready. Unreal.
Smells gorgeous; lots of chocolate, dark pitted tree fruit, roast, plenty of sweet dark coffee. Not overbearing coffee with just dark-roasted beans adding a charred note, but the sweet taste of the beans themselves.
Big, thick, creamy body. Goopy but not tooooo heavy. Doesnít leave you with that feeling that you want to burp but you canít because your throat is gooped up. But, no mistake: itís a big, battery beer.
Milk chocolate, cherries, plums, prunes, high-quality espresso, and nice baking chocolate notes combined with dark herbal hops on the finish (and on the burp, for those keeping really finely detailed score at home).
Definitely another great beer from GD. I love that these guys just continue to crank out good beer without playing into all the hype or getting themselves sucked into the center of beer geek political debates. Makes them seem clean somehow, maybe even...holy.

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.

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.
