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.

Just had this beer in Stockholm. It is amazing. Great Divide is my favorite brewery, from wonderful Denver, in the great state of Colorado. This beer is in itself a stout superior to most other (regular Yeti is amazing), but with the espresso adding to the impressive instense roasty malt, the great hop blend and, well, I think there’s vanilla here? I can only imagine this beer being served with a hearty English breakfast and working really well. What more can I say? I want more.

Patrickctenchi (3714) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle: Pours motor-oil black with a thick, but quick dark brown head. Dark chocolate, espresso aroma. Taste is creamy, sweet....followed by a strong, ashy, coffee, woody bitter. Excellent.

panacea (79) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
Pours black with high longlasting head. Nose is chocolate, coffee (obviously), vanilla, hints if booze and roasted malts. Taste is tart chocolate, coffee and black malt bitterness. Body is full but maybe a bit to much carbonation. Great beer but I think it would improve with age. Sadly, almost no character from the oak.

TXBadger (1398) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2014
Pours a very black oil like viscosity with tan head. Coffee bean, vanilla, oak, and cocoa on the nose; follows onto the palate. Ends with a bit of sweetness from the vanilla. Very complex, very coffee forward. Gets better with some age, very smooth.

stefannilssons (1464) - SWEDEN - APR 22, 2014
Det här var, som väntat, väldigt kraftfullt, smaken bar toner av choklad, kaffe och vanilj. Kroppen var riktigt stabil och balansen var fulländad. Slutsats; riktigt bra öl.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (97:-). Otroligt vackert när man häller upp det i glaset, riktigt svart med ett härligt brunt skum och oljig i konsistensen. Rostade malttoner och kaffe/espresso dominerar, men det finns även mörk choklad, trätoner, vanilj och lakrits. Avslutningen är torr och besk med rostade kaffetoner.

SlovakSniper (3203) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
Embouteillée le 24 décembre 2013.  Une superbe robe ténébreuse tombe lourdement dans mon verre.  Le col mousseux brun reste figé dans le temps et une dentelle s’étend à vue d’œil.  Le nez est dense de notes rôties avec du café fraîchement tourné, du bois légèrement brûlé, du chocolat, du chêne fruité, de la vanille piquante et de la réglisse séchée.  Diantre!  Les papilles aiment ce qu’elles découvrent.  Le café est poivré, le chocolat est amer, la vanille asséchante, la torréfaction bien robuste et les houblons parfumés. Mais c’est bon ce truc! En bouche, encore une fois, le corps du liquide montre un talent fou.  Sa densité, sa texture soyeuse et son pétillement ajusté peuvent faire école.  Ici, c’est un sans faute!  En finale, des notes prenantes de café, de chocolat et de houblons citronnés extrêmement amers et ô combien appréciables après une journée à cuire sous le soleil chaud d’Hollywood Beach. Oh que j’aime cette famille monstrueuse!

Fullproppad med kaffe och mörkchocklad. FIn balans i smaken. Fyllig kropp. Del beska i smaken. Kolsvart och högt gräddig gulaktigt skum.

Flaska hos VictorSTR, mörk som natten tycker faktiskt att den vanliga yetin är godare, smakar lite för mycket kaffe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark pour. Really strong flavors of coffee and roasted malts. Almost too heavy and dark for all but the coldest nights. Still as I finished the very strong drink, I thought it got better and better. Well done
