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.

Good lord is this one roasty. Pours black, with a thick, dense, dark tan head. Beautiful. Aroma has some deep, dark roasted coffee, nearly masking the normal notes of chocolate and molasses. Flavor is right on the nose (so to speak) - it almost tastes burnt. Lots of oak, for sure, but it doesnít have the sweetness Iím used to finding in this style - the acrid bitterness from the coffee covers it. Glad I tried it, and Iím a huge fan of the normal OA Yeti... but this one seems a bit much. I feel like there needed to be something else to counter the sharpness of the coffee, and it wasnít there. Big, big brew - you canít believe how thick it is - and the mouthfeel is great... the flavor just isnít my cup of tea (or coffee).

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2009 Sampled at the GD tasting at Blacklick Wine and Spirits on 3.26.09. Black pour with a light brown head and very sticky, very much like regular Yeti. Malty coffee aroma with some chocolate. Malty flavor up front with some vanilla from the oak. Very good, but the flavor that immediately follows is a bit plasticky before the bitter espresso finish hits. A truly delicious beer, but the hint of plastic keeps it from being a top 10.

pours thick dark blackwith thick creamy light brown head. not much of an aroma but there are slight notes of coffee. strong upfront coffee flavor with oak notes. strong boozy flavor that coats your entire mouth and is strong on the palate and is somewhat creamy/velvety. lingering coffee flavor. pretty drinkable for an extreme beer but it is definetely a meal in a glass!

22oz bottle. The aroma is a nice mix of fresh espresso, strong oak, some vanilla, and roasted malts with a hint of sweetness. Pours almost black with some brown hues and a brown mousy head. The flavor is first strong espresso followed by wood on the mid palate which segues into some light sweetness in the form of vanilla, roasted malt moves in and a pretty noticeable hop bitterness rounds out the finish. Some lingering roasted espresso notes as well as some oak. Drinks very nicely.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2009 Bottle : Excellent chocolate and espresso aroma along with some light vanilla, oak, and roast. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with a large creamy brown head with great retention and lacing. The flavor starts with dark chocolate and faint vanilla. The finish has lots of espresso along with some piney hops, light burnt notes, and oak. Full bodied with a silky mouthfeel. An excellent coffee Imperial Stout.

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.

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...
