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.

Pours a very dark, thick black with a big tan head-Mmm looks like dessert. The aroma is a very nice coffee roast, wonderful. The taste is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak with a bitter ending. The mouthfeel on this beer is simply wonderful, it is so thick and creamy and coats your mouth nicely. This is a big beer and a lovely Imp. Stout. My favorite from the Yeti clan.

22 oz bottle from GAManiac from our very first trade. Thanks, Grant! Pours a fairly thick pitchblack opaque pour, dark and oily with a moderate darker brown head, laces well, stays pretty large. Aromas are a blast of silky roasty coffee, vanilla tannins, some dark chocolate, roasted malts and some caramel sweetness. Bitterness from hops is died out, the espresso is heavenly, strong and sturdy with good roast, vanilla, cocoa. Initial is much more bitter than anticipated, hops and wet oak with raw coffee flavor, espresso and good roast, ashy smoke, some sweetness but really quite roasty and bitter, earthy hops of floral and some pine. This is definitely Yeti, the coffee is very nice, bitter and roasty with some cocoa coming up, vanilla tannins cool and mellow towards the back of the palate, very nice. The nose and actual taste seem very different. Very oaky and espresso soaked aroma, taste brings it back to roast and bitterness. Very good!

March Madness tasting -

Aroma: HUGE notes of coffee. Nothing new there. I mean, if it smelled like passion fruit we’d have some issues. Coffee dominates the aroma, some ashy/charred notes too but the coffee does take center stage and it’s well done.

Appearance: Jet black body, brown creamy 1" head, little lacing.

Taste: Coffee dominates but the hop bitterness is clearly there. Dark chocolate, oak, black licorice also pop in with some notes of molasses but it’s just full-on, pedal-to-the-metal, take no prisoners coffee in this stout.

Overall: It’s rather one-dimensional but it does that one-dimension pretty damned well I think. If you enjoy a coffee stout, this is no doubt for you (and me).

Bottle. Pitch black with a creamy brown head. The aroma is cocoa, coffee, roast, dusty caramel and light chocolate. The flavour is mainly roasty with notes of cocoa, chocolate, coffee, dusty hops, bitter espresso and light bourbon. Creamy texture. Long roasty cocoa finish with some warming alcohol.

KimJohansen (10420) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2010
Black with a medium deep beige head. Sweet aroma with plenty of bitter espresso, dark chocolate and burned malt. Flavour had burned malt, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla and bourbon. Plenty of hops gave it a prenounced bitterness.

#8 at papsoe blind tasting pitch dark, large light brown head with lacings dry , roasted grains, caramel, pretty tight. some hops that balance, but does not add to aroma. flavor is roasted grains, licorice, faint hoppy, faint sweet malts, faint coffee,perhaps a little wood, perhaps port wine.

Bottle @ Papsø. Tasted blind. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown head and lacings. Nose is bitter roasted and ashy. Roasted and bitter flavor with cold coffee, vanilla and chocolate and a great amount of hops beneath. Smooth, stikcy and oily. Lasting end.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Pours a deep, rich black with a thick, frothy head of dark beige. Aroma is straight-up coffee, with fresh coffee beans and fresh coffee grounds intermingling in the glass. Reminds me of Sunday mornings at Grandma and Papa’s house. Just a touch of hops pokes through after a good swirling in the glass. Flavor is a rush of hoppy coffee and a touch of sweetened peat. Small chunks of oak and vanilla coffee linger in the finish. Leaves a nice, thick film of coffee and hops on the tongue. Fantastic beer. One of the best beers to finally arrive in Houston in a long time.

Absolutely incredible. Has a great nose with expresso, coffee bean, and chocolate flavors. The color is pitch black, thick and dense. Very smooth and enjoyable.
