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.

On Tab @ D’s six packs and dogs. Poured motor oil dark. 1/2 dark brown head. Aroma of malts, coffee, and vanilla. I could smell it as soon as the waitress put it in front of me. Flavor of roasted coffee, oak, and malts. Slight bitterness in the end. Tastes mess very well. Nicely complex flavors. Can’t notice the 9.5% ABV at all. Thick bodied. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel.

Nice black color with a dark tan head, very nice lacing. Aroma of dark chocolates and coffee, seemed a tad weak. Flavor was coffee and chocolates with some licorice and fruit in there as well. Full bodied with a bitter coffee finish that doesn’t hang around. Very enjoyable.

Bottle shared by notalush. Pours a thick, dense black with a moderate brown head. Very pleasant aroma of roasted malt, coffee, oak and a bit of alcohol. The flavors are very intense with tons of coffee, heavy malt, and lots of oak. The oak and the coffee clash a bit for me and the flavors just don’t become cohesive. Strong coffee bitterness at the finish is a bit overpowering, at least for me. This one is a slow sipper for sure!

hophead21112 (218) - Louisville, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 Pours thick and black with a 2 1/2 finger mocha-colored, rocky head that sticks around for a while and leaves nice, decorative lacing. Coffee and chocolate on the nose, a touch of oak. Extremely complex mouthfeel. Minimal carbonation and heavy on the tongue. Starts off with the malty sweet chocolate and vanilla from the oak and ends with the hop bitterness that lingers, finishes with light alcohol. Seems nowhere near 9.5%, which is nice. Espresso all over this one. Great brew!

zathrus13 (1740) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours black, with a brown head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, and a little alcohol. Flavor is coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, hops, alcohol, and a touch of vanilla. A little more sweetness, and this would be even better.

snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2009
On tap at Malt and Vine. Pours black with a nice tan head. Big roasty coffee smell. Flavor is a little more complex, with chocolate and a little bourbon. Not as woody as I would have hoped, but very tasty. Thick, smooth mouthfeel with a nice bitter finish.

tgncc (3035) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 1, 2009
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.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2009
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.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 31, 2009
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.
