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.

Bottle at rickfifty’s place. Pitch black body. Centimeter thick brown head. Alcohol, wood, smoke, plum, toffee and coffee nose. Coffee, espresso, some vanilla, chocolate, sugar and bourbon, fruit and apple flavour. Very bitter. Thick body. Soft carbonation. Smooth.

Clownoisseur (344) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2015
2013 vintage bottle, pours a dark brown, near black, 1 finger khaki head that fades into some spotty lacing. Aromas are espresso through the roof! Ground coffee, chocolate, vanilla, oak and cereal. Taste is fairly bitter upfront with a shot of espresso getting your attention. Lots of roasted malt, oat and earth make this a pretty chewy beer. A bit more chocolate, char, tobacco and vanilla swirl throughout the backend before a heavy dose of bitter coffee and a slight alcohol sting finish this one off. Solid beer, but not my favorite Yeti.

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark chocolate, coffee with some oak. The taste was of oak with dark chocolate, vanilla, espresso and roasted malt flavors. Very nice.

Really nice. All Yeti i’ve had are awesome. Aroma is dark roast coffee. Very peaty. Appearance is dark black. Foamy brown head. Like carmelizing sugar. Taste is bitter chocolate. Feel is suprisinglt light and airy. Good carbonation for a thick beer. Velvety smooth. Only knock is maybe a touch too bitter in the aftertaste, but other than that, perfect.

Prufrockstar (1365) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Draft at mammoth. Clear garnet pour with basically no head. Aroma: chocolate, oats (because you can smell that, right?). Soft coffee, toast and grains. Taste: lightly sweet, grainy, coffee is weak, moderately roast finish. Full- body, slick texture, average carbonation. Overall: either they’ve been sitting on this keg for awhile, or this is just a disappointing beer. Either way, 1 tick and done.

Bottle. Pours black with rich tan head. Aroma is pruney, chocolate, vanilla, chocolate, sweet. Taste is dry, full- bodied, rich, chocolatey, smooth. Overall, a great coffee flavor without being overwhelming, rich, delicious.

kanerjus (49) - orimattila, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2014
paras juomani olut. vahvat maut, espressoa, suklaata, paahto hyvin pehmeää ja hillittyä. runsas ja makea muttei kuitenkaa sokerista tai äitelää mihin tälläiset oluet yleensä sortuvat. 0.66 pullo putoaa ilman että makeus häiritsee vaikken tykkää makeista oluista. aivan fantastista tavaraa. jos jotain parannettavaa väkisin kaivaa niin vaahto ei kestä kovin pitkään ja tuoksussa voisi olla vielä enemmän monimuotoisuutta.

Bottle (22oz): Black small brown head. Major coffee smell and taste. This tastes just like an espresso but cold and with carbonation. Since coffee is not my thing I do not think I will try again, but if you like coffee......

Hopmaestro (366) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2014
aroma is fairly complex from coffee beans, roasted malts and wet wood. The taste isn’t as smooth as the standard Yeti, it is more harsh and sharp, but there is some vanilla and chocolate notes underneath. It is both smooth and harsh at the same time. There is also notes of figs, nuts and wood. Oh, the complexity. Sadly the sting from both the coffee and some alcohol notes wins the race, and it is not as enjoyable as the standard Yeti.

Bottle from Systembolaget Passagen shared with esp0r, edvard and Simonsen at The "Esp0r #2000 Weekend in The Woods" 2014. Black body with a big brown head. Thickbodied. Aroma of roasted malt, espresso, vanilla, oak. Complex robust coffee taste with dark chocolate, ash, subtle hops, great balanced, oak in finish together with vanilla and coffee. Great.
