COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout is a new addition to the Yeti clan. A generous infusion of Denverís own Pabloís 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. Itís official, you can now have Yeti with breakfast.

Suggested food pairings: Breakfast burrito, eggs Benedict, hash browns, cheesecake, creme brulee.

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 canít 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. Fuckiní A. Fuckiní B even... As if the regular yeti wasnít enough... big ups to the GD crew.

Iíve tried many a Yeti, and itís 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 sippiní beer. Overall- Huge flavors all around, like a RIS should be. I donít think the esspresso is overbearing at all... How can any one flavor be overbearing in this beer? Theyíre all overbearing, but thatís the point, right? The funny thing is, even if you donít like RISí youíll buy this, because itís a gem, and youíll like it... because thereís 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.

In short: A highly roasted and excessively espresso flavoured impy stout. For those who like their coffee strong, very strong.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed relatively fresh 4 months after bottling date.
The look: Black body topped by a persistent medium tan head
In long: Nose is intensely coffee with light chocolaty notes. The beer smells like one of those coffee dessert. Taste is overly roasted, developing asparagus notes like other overly roasted stouts. Coffee flavour is overwhelming with burnt toasts and some cacao. Finish is very roasted. I like coffee flavoured stouts (Peche Mortel, Speedway, etc.) but this is not coffee flavoured stout, this is stout flavoured espresso. Not bad as a digestive drink but just ok as a beer, and I use the term ďbeerĒ very loosely in this case. I hope this beer is not too successful, the last thing we need is jacked up hyperactive drunks.

Bomber w/ Justin R on the doomy friday afternoon/evening after daily pint. No reason not to like this unless you didnít like regular oak aged ... or you really hate coffee. Itís good ... really good.

Really a very good beer. RIch, full, long lasting flavors really drive this beer and make it something that you can sip on for a pretty long time. As expected, thereís a serious coffee kick from the espresso, which cranks up the flavor and nicely complements the roast. Excellent.

Bottle shared by Andy in St. Louis, got it from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours black with a one-finger brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate, and oak. Coffee flavor as well, with distinct earthy notes to the blend, along with sweet vanilla, hops, oak, and chocolate. Good balance between the coffee flavor and oak aging, with a large dash of hops, which I expected from any Yeti after trying the regular one. Full bodied and woody. Thick mouthfeel, equal parts oily and grainy.

Birthday gift for the wife (yes, I am blessed). Bottled Feb. 09, consumed 11.27.09. Thick black with moderate brown but otherwise unremarkable head. Aroma of obvious chocolate, tart cherries, espresso beans, sherry, and a metallic soy sauce. Hints of green apple and fruitcake. Flavors were initially richly sweet with chocolate, espresso, ripe red berries and tart cherries, so basically congruent to the nose, and then a delayed onset of what became a long, intensely bitter, chalky, salty finish. A massive beer. Better than the regular Oak-Aged version we tried a couple months ago, which was bottled at the same time and so a little younger. But man, awesome awesome stuff.

Near black color with a small light brown head. Big piney aroma starts things out. Tar, caramel and coffee also wander about in the background. Some strong chocolate liqueur also comes out over time. Sweet start. Charred wood, coffee, pine hops all in the flavors. LIght alcohol in the finish and into the linger. Slightly warming. I still am quite sure I prefer the regular Yeti.
