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 via trade from ben4321. Thanks, Ben. This was a great one, possibly the best of the Yetis I’ve had. Pours jet black with a nice tan head and some good lacing. Aroma is intense with lots of coffee, chocolate, and roast. Flavor is excellent: espresso, roast, oak, and milk chocolate, melding extremely well, with none of the flavors too heavy. Medium-full on the palate with lots of coffee bitterness and some hop bitterness as well. Pretty drinkable for an imperial coffee stout. As rating #1420 for me, RateBeer played a "Bag of Weed" video from "Family Guy" after I entered my rating. Nice touch.

Pours a pitch blackwith a big tan head... Aroma of milk chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and vanilla... Flavor profile matches nicely, roasted malt, vanilla coffee bourbon chocolate alcohol... Medium full body fades to a finish that is complex but not entirely cohesive...

Pure black color. Aroma is full of coffee and chocolate, with some malts, vanilla, and nutty undertones. Flavor is of big time espresso beans! There is also some chocolate malts, roasty flavors, and slight vanilla. Leaves a lot of coffee in the aftertaste. I might have to go to the bathroom after drinking this one.

DArk brown pour thin dark tan head. Simple but intense aromas of chocolate thick heavy cream with hints of that bitter roastyness from the espresso . Flavor follows suit dark coffe roast smooth silk cream. Hints of booze linger on the mouth. So warm and yummy

Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma holds definite coffee/espresso, dark chocolate, cream, roasted malt, and a bit of charred wood and chalk. Flavor is on another echelon from the smell; tons of coffee grounds, roasted malt, big cream notes, wood, and plentiful chocolate. The palate is absolutely insane; massive roast notes, but also that great chocolate and cream sweetness. Yet another variant of Yeti, and yet another ridiculously good brew.

Dark Brown/Black pour, tan head. Aroma is Cream, Chocolate, Coffee Roast. one dimensional, yet extremely pleasing aroma...Flavor is woody chocolate with exceptional coffee roast bitterness that envelopes the whole palate. It even lingers on the tongue, sticky and full of woody bitterness. the mouthfeel is creamy and leaves a boozey tingle on the tongue as it passes. The addition of espresso to one of my favorite oak aged beers is welcomed. This shit is tasty.

Oily black pour with a vivacious tan head. Aroma is massively coffee oriented with bakers chocolate, roasted barley, oak, and cream. Not overly complex, but extremely robust and hard hitting. Just can’t brush it off. Flavor is creamy to the max with unescapable oak, 100% cocoa chocolate, dark roast coffee, mocha, cappuccino, and latte. So impressively crafted. Palate is extremely viscous with an oily mouthfeel and creamy texture. Fuckin’ A. Fuckin’ B even... As if the regular yeti wasn’t enough... big ups to the GD crew.

I’ve tried many a Yeti, and it’s always an awesome experience. Aroma- Everyone raves about the esspresso, but I smell lots of chocolate. Some esspresso, vanilla and fusel alcohols are present. Appearance- Murky, Dark brown to black, frothy brown head. Flavor- High everything, perfect for an RIS. Very Chocolatey, with plenty of esspresso. Palate- Chewey. Medium carbonation. A sippin’ beer. Overall- Huge flavors all around, like a RIS should be. I don’t think the esspresso is overbearing at all... How can any one flavor be overbearing in this beer? They’re all overbearing, but that’s the point, right? The funny thing is, even if you don’t like RIS’ you’ll buy this, because it’s a gem, and you’ll like it... because there’s too much going on to want to look away.

Jet back appearance with frothy brown head. Strong coffee aroma and taste with vanilla finish. Full, thick feel with to be expected with impy stout. Coffee flavor overpowers the oak barrel.
