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.

22 oz. Near black pour with coffee accents. Large rocky layered head light tan to dark tan. It actually looked identical to the picture here. Coffee nose, some barrel and booze. Taste is VERY roasty coffee and burnt malt. Some bakers chocolate, anise and black licorice. This has a thick, nice and creamy mouthfeel. Sticks to the glass and your lips, real nice. A little bitter finishing, some warming. A little bitter and boozy yet, which hurts the drinkability just a bit. I think I like the regular and regular oak better, but maybe some age can bring this up. I enjoy the coffee stouts, so Iím hopefull this will improve slightly with age.

Pours a black color with a brown head. Aroma is of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits, and molasses. Flavor is the same with some oak on the finish.

2009 Bottle - Pours a viscous almost black with a small tan head...aroma is that distinguishable yeti malt, coffee, cocoa...flavour is dark malty, the espresso is great and not overpowering, and I thought that it had a way larger vanilla oak presence than the Oaked Yeti...gonna be amazing a year from now...

Nephilium (1571) - Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Not a big aroma on this one. Hints of coffee, roast, and chocolate. Pours an opaque black, with a huge milk chocolate colored head. The flavor is where this one is at. Strong roast, with the touch of vanilla from the oak, balanced with a touch of hop, then fading to a nice mocha finish. This is one fine beer.

Bottle. Poured black with a large brown head, nice lacing. The aroma is of malt and coffee. The flavor is sweet with roasted malt and strong coffee. Medium bodied, very creamy. Slightly bitter finish with long lasting coffee. Very good!

Beerman6686 (5615) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
This poured a dark dark brown almost black with a light tan head. Aroma was lots of coffee and burnt malts. Flavor is really burnt coffee and some smoke. Hard to handle a whole pint of this stuff but pretty good.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Aroma: Oak, whole coffee beans. Appearance: Dark brown with barely any head. Flavor: Espresso, earth, wood, vanilla and a touch of smoke. Palate: Thick and silky. Overall: Better than the Great Oak Aged Yeti sans the Espresso. Really impressed, glad I had a friend to share this with me, as it is strong and filling.

Bottle in trade from 7ways. Thanks! Pours very dark black with a short lived tan head. Smell is chocolate, fresh oak, a bit of vanilla, and only mild coffee aromas and a touch of alcohol. Taste is rich, and chocolatey with a strong fresh oak flavor and hop bitterness to it. Very mild coffee flavor in fact, and very similar to what I remember of the Oak Aged Yeti, with lots of oak, hops and chocolate. Rich body, and soft yet prickly carbonation. Another very solid beer in the Yeti series, but I found this too similar to the Oak Aged Yeti and it didnít have enough espresso to really distinguish itself as much as I hoped for. Still a great beer.

Draught at Brick Store Pub. Pours black with a thick dark brown head. Looks like old motor oil pouring into a pan for changing... Thick and satisfying the flavors are dominated by coffee and vanilla from the oak, there is a faint hint of hops. Very nice, but a little less oak would have made this perfect IMHO. As usual...very solid stuff from Great Divide !!
