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.

ARH (520) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2014 On tap, poured into a 6 oz imperial pint-style glass. The aroma is very rich and sweet notes of caramel, vanilla, chocolate nibs, nuts, and oak. Espresso is noticeably missing from this profile. It pours a pitch black color with a dark brown bubbly head which doesn’t retain well - only a medium light ring remains - but leaves lots of messy lace. It’s highly bitter, with a medium malty sweet undertone. The beer is a full, rich, malty body with a thick, chewy texture and a good amount of soft carbonation. The espresso is very strong at the finish with some nuttiness, figs, and chocolate, as well as a hint of citrus peel. The strong espresso note sticks around in the aftertaste.

Draft at Ale House. Pours nearly black with a beige head. Aroma of dark coffee, vanilla. Taste follows nose, along with licorice. Oak in the finish is really nice.

Inbreak (2324) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014
08.06.2014, 0,65l bottle @ home, courtesy of Cunningham:
Nice dark brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet roasted, espresso, vanilla, dark sugar, oak, dark malts, hay, caramel, milk chocolate, hops, hints of ashes and licorice. Taste is dry and sour-ish roasted, sour espresso, burnt grain, burnt caramel, hops, oak, hay, ashes, cocoa, grass, vanilla, dark malts. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Nice, but as usual with most Yetis, it’s just too burnt and ashy.

JerseyHophead (21) - California, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours a thick black with a nice burnt brown head. Nose of roasted coffee beans with a hint of vanilla. Comes on smooth and creamy but those coffee notes hit you hard on the tongue. Medium to thick bodied mouth feel. It finishes with bitter coffee notes followed by a smooth creamy aftertaste that lingers on the palate. One of the best coffee stouts I’ve had. It’s complex, it’s layered and it drinks like a meal. A must try for any stout fans (or coffee fans for that matter).

Bottle. Chocolate fudge, smoky espresso, hay, and barley malt aroma. Oil black with minimal head. Chocolate fudge, burnt espresso, barley malt and light hay aroma. Body pretty light for the style. Pleasant.

keanex (1493) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Pitch black body with the darkest shade of brown on a head that I’ve ever seen. Darker than the words Yeti on the label.
Aroma: Big espresso with chocolate with a touch of pine and earth.
Taste: Huge espresso throughout. Like chewing espresso beans. Slightly piney overlays with just a touch of chocolate. The espresso is bitter and pungent. Hints of oak tannins linger with espresso.
Palate: Medium to thick bodied, mild carbonation.
Overall: This is balls to the walls espresso in a great way. Avoid this if you aren’t a fan of coffee, but if you are then you’ll want to gulp this down. Very nice.
