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.

Draft at EBF. My second favorite of the series. Pours a black body with a tan roasty head. Lots of huge espresso coming out the nose, its rather brilliant in terms of aroma. However all that coffee doesn’t come out as creamy as i’d like, it was roasty and a bit cloying but not as much as some of the danish coffee stouts. A nice vanilla and some pine character. Decent.

40th rating of this beer. Growler via trade with alexsdad06, I appreciate the hookup Brad. Shared with my buddy Paul. Pours a rich beautifal black with a big 2 finger light brown head. This beer looks amazing in my reidel snifter. Nose is wow, wow, wow, wow, huge espresso and coffee kick. Big robust imperial stout nose with a gnarly coffee bite. Taste is amazing, crazy espresso with a big time kick to the malt and a wonderful slick mouthfeel. Damn this is one hell of an amazing beer. I’ve always enjoyed the Yeti series and this one does not disapoint one bit.

Growler from alexsdad06, thanks Brad. Black with a one finger tan head, good retention. The aroma has loads of coffee (as advertised), lots of dark chocolate, some roast and light oak. After it warms some hoppy pine makes itself apparent. Flavor is much the same with plenty of coffee up front, lots of chocolate and pine, and falls into a roasty dry finish, some alcohol present. It is a little tougher to find the oak, but it’s in there. Full creamy smooth body with low carbonation. Quite the tasty beer indeed--another winner from the Yeti family--all I need to do now is bust open the BA Yeti! Also, it looks like this is the lowest rated of the three Yetis so far, but I dunno if I actually feel that way. I shall rerate!

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2009 pitch black under a huge foamy brown head with the appearance of motor oil. coffee(expresso), chocolate ice cream, touch of hops, roasted barley aroma. flavor is strong with chocolate, almonds, coffee, vanilla ice cream and wood. thick full bodied and creamy palate. one of the best palate i can think of in a stout or any beer for that matter. really great stuff.

Cybercat (3331) - Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Comes out of the bottle a rich opaque chocolaty sable with a thick brown head. Aroma is like a rich coffee and has a strong undertone of hops with a firm hint of chocolate, like a good IPA mixed with a fine mocha. Flavor has a strong coffee component, a hoppy overtone, and more than a hint of unsweet chocolate, with smoky and nutty hints. Texture is pleasingly smooth and thick, and finish is coffee-ish and a little hoppy. I thought there was no way to combine "stouty" and hoppy flavor - I am glad that I have been proven wrong!

Tmoney99 (10670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Growler from Party Town shared by shigadeyo. Poured black color with a minimal creamy light brown head that mostly diminished with virtually no lacing. Moderate to heavy chocolate, woody and roasted coffee malt with a small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced roasted coffee flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 18, 2009
Draught. Pitch black colour with a nice creamy bit bubbly tan well lasting steady head. Very pleasant aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Great filling mouthfeel. The flavour has a very good roasted maltiness with coffeee and chocolate, nice bitterness. Roasty bitter and dry coffee long lasting great finish.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Dark black body with a tan head, that leaves filmy lacing. Nice strong espresso profile up front in the aroma, which blends with a pleasant roastiness. There are touches of vanilla and licorice and perhaps a hint of oak. Strong roasted bitter espresso flavor, dry and almost chalky, bordering on gritty. Bakers chocolate, and a bit of vanilla also show. Dry and lingering on the palate, and not sticky.

Tap at Ølbaren. Black with a medium sized head. Pretty well balanced with notes of coffee, malt, toffee and hops.
