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.

neongolden (795) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2015
(650ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours black with a frothy dark tan head and lace. Aroma of dark, fairly heavily roasted malts with a chocolately sweetness, some fairly intense brewed espresso, and a little oaky vanilla. On the palate, rich chocoloate and dark malt core with moderately high roast, some nice brewed coffee flavour complementing it on the palate. Oak and vanilla comes in from the middle, coffee roast picks up towards the finish, chocolate persisiting. Finish pretty dry, moderate roast, coffee and coffee grounds, a bit of oak. Aftertaste not super intense, lingering coffee and roast. Medium full, silghtly oily mouthfeel. This is a really nice espresso stout, balanced and pretty rich, but it doesn’t quite have the long, complex finish that the best of style have in my opinion. Still highly recommended.

Bottle. Pours thick pitch black with really nice tan head. Aroma is char, roast, savory, loads of coffee, espresso, dark chocolate. Taste is really roasty, espresso, coffee beans, french press, dark bitter chocolate. Medium to full body and dry. Vanilla dry finish.

kkleu357 (599) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2015
From notes on 3/30 On tap at Great Divide. Also, this is the nitro version. Excellent beer. Sweet cocoa flavor with lost of espresso taste. Bought a bottle to take home. My guess is I’ll like the non-nitro version even more.

Beerandhockey8 (263) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 8, 2015
From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a dark brown, nearly black with a thick tan head. Nose is huge roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, roast. Taste is mostly sour, hints of sweetness shine through however. Thick mouthfeel. Impressive beer

Dark like a moonless night, a deep chocolate taste as if a machine gun of the richest cocoa was raining down upon you. And the finish, a nice shuttle spice, Like the time you almost made it to mexico but then turned back for safety at the last mile marker. Also, yetis are cool

mikeyo1 (439) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle @ home. Aged 2011 edition. Opaque black with a nice big brown head. Sweet and roasted aroma with chocolate, vinous raisins, oak, vanilla and coffee. Big mouth feel. Medium carbonation. Overall dry and really roasted taste. Dark fruits, dark chocolate, oak and gentle vanilla. Nice coffee bitter finish and long lasting cocoa & dark chocolate aftertaste. Slso late notes of red fruits. Espresso Flavors might have faded over the years but it’s still a perfect beet.

Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Tastes like dry bitter coffee, dark bittersweet chocolate, ash, smooth alcohol, woody. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like ash, woody, dark chocolate, and some lightly burnt coffee.

SG111 (612) - New York, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottled 01/07/15. Pours pitch black with a beautiful tan/brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and a smokey oak character. Flavor is coffee up front, roasted malts, and bitter coffee finish. The oak is excellent and noticeable, but not as much in the flavor or perhaps finish as the oak aged; however, the coffee adds a brilliant element. Fantastic imperial stout.

RRistow12 (455) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Tasted from draft. Pours black with dark brown head. Excellent coffee aroma with some dark chocolate. Taste is similar to aroma. Big time coffee with dark chocolate and some caramel and toffee. Pretty full bodied. Not too drying on the palate. Definitely one of the best coffee stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fantastic imperial stout for coffee lovers. The aroma of coffee is among my favorites, and this stout brings it home. I would have forgot I was drinking beer if not for the roasted malt and faint hop kick.
