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.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a massive tan head. Coffee aromas are downright dominating and assault me from afar. Closer inspection reveals a little bit of a pretty good charcoal presence as well. In spite of the dominance of the espresso in then nose, the flavor and mouthfeel are much more interesting. A bit of a creamy mouthfeel and vanilla edge to the flavor keep this from being too abrasive, but as in the nose, most of the complexities are simply buried by the coffee. This is really good, but I donít know that it is what I would classify as great.

Dark pour with a brown head. This is a full-bodied beer with a strong coffee flavor. A little dark chocolate mixed in.

Courtesy hopscotch. Pours pitch black, with a medium, frothy, light beige head. Smells of pretty big coffee, with that same similar hop presence found in regular yeti. The big hop and espresso combo is interesting. I think the coffee overpowers it a bit, but the hops definitely hang in there and leave some bitterness in the finish. Nice dark chocolate and roasty elements are evident as well. I like how it kept its hoppy identity and didnt just turn in to a coffee bomb.

Bottle from SL. The pour was deep dark black with a surprisingly still decent head. The aroma was nice roasted coffee, slight choco detectable underneath it with vanilla (but oak not detected by me). The flavor was all of the aroma, rich, nicely coffee-ed up, roasty bitterness that balanced it out, no "sweet" or "cloying" elements at all. Vanilla and slight wood detected as it warmed. Gotta go get another bottle of this for another coffee brew runoff. Since STís Jahva didnít hold a candle to DDCís Peche Mortel, maybe this can (and this would clearly be less "rich" and more drinkable!)?

EithCubes (5215) - New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bomber. HUGE coffee nose with load and loads of dark chocolate. Pitch black oour with an immovable rocky light brown head. Hoppyish nose, strong/intense flavor without muchg alcohol, just lots of chocolate. Huge huge huge dark chocolate taste with some cocoa and chocolate cake, light mokka. Full body, some slurry. Very dry finish, lovely espresso aftertaste that lasts long, alcohol seems more like seven. Super classy, top-shelf stuff! Couldnít finish this alone, couldnít really have more than four or five ounces (perhaps best out of Turkish coffee cups or espresso shooters), but man, when it hits, it hits!

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2009
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!

coyotehunter (681) - , Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2009
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.
