COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2009 Strong rich flavor of oak, chocolate, and coffee, Pours Black with a brown head. the best Imperial Stout I have ever had. I would kick a Yeti’s ass to get a glass

The aroma has leather, earth, rubber, molasses, burnt malt, wood, coffee, and chocolate. The appearance is a very nice dark brown almost black color with a large tan head. The Flavor is like the aroma. The palate is not quite average for the style. Overall it is to style but I don’t really like it.

22oz bottle from our Monday tasting courtesy of Kevin. Pours a deep black with a chocolate head. Huge coffee nose, very similar to Beer Geek Breakfast, with lots of roasty chocolate, caramel and molasses. Flavor is more robust than the oak aged. Quite a bitter roasty edge to the finish, almost harsh but seems to be just about right considering its espresso. Great malt backbone with huge amounts of chocolate and caramel as well as some raisins and right before the bitter finish kicks in a lovely oaky vanilla note that dominates the palate. Wonderfully done but the Oak Aged is still better.

Bottle thanks to bullzeye. The smell is roasty, esspersso, coffee, some chocolate, malts, bananas, and wood. The look is a black color with a decent tan head. The taste is like fresh ground coffee, hops, some grapefruity hoppiness, and roasty malts.

Vas19 (313) - Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Pours black with a creamy brown head. Aroma is sweet coffee with some vanilla and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is more coffee, oaky vanilla, and chocolate. The oak hides some of the coffee bitterness. Good body. Tasty beer.

Pours a dark fudge brown with a tall brown head. The aroma is strong sweet chocolate with some smooth coffee and light roastiness. Very creamy mouth feel. The flavor is very strong coffee with some woody roastiness. There’s also some sweet chocolaty flavors. The bitterness from the cofee and the warming of the alcohol combine in the finish.

On tap at the Great Divide tasting room in Denver. Pours a pitch black body with a thick, dense, creamy mocha colored head that dissipates slowly and remains nicely laced. Big aroma of mild espresso coffee as well as the rest of the complexities of the other Yeti’s. Lots of bittersweet dark chocolate, wood, big bold citrusy hops, and even a little vanilla as it warms up. Flavor is very similar and well balanced. Initially chocolatey and woody before transitioning smoothly to a big roasted coffee linger. More of those bold citrus hops creep in as well. Leaves a bit of oaky-vanilla sweetness in the aftertaste that lingers for quite awhile. Palate is velvety smooth and medium to light bodied. Very sessionable. Overall, this easily lives up to the Yeti name. Not sure if I like this more than the other two, but its pretty good nonetheless. Very happy to have tried this at Great Divide’s tasting room.

Pours black with tan head... Very complex stout with a strong coffee aroma.... Espresso flavor hits you hard initially, but as the sip lingers, notes of oak can be appreciated with a nice dark chocolate finish... Very drinkable stout... Worth the money...
