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.

Bomber. I am literally pouring a black hole in viscous liquid form into my glass. Only the very thinning edges glows a burnt sienna. It has a nice head formation that dwindles down to an extremely long lasting film at the surface. The aroma is intense. With the glass about two inches from my nose, I smell a sweet chocolate truffle. As I bring the drinking vessel closer to my nose the espresso notes become a little more clear. As I allow the brew intimate contact with my taste buds I undergo what I like to call a "tastegasm." The oak and espresso notes are instantly apparent. Chocolate and hints of vanilla follow closely. At a cooler temperature the hops take center stage as the brew passes the tongue. Espresso and dark chocolate hardly stand up to the bite and bitterness and really makes this one-sided. But as the brew warms, the hops steps back and allows for more complexity. Hops now become complementary to the brash flavours of the espresso while the espresso complements the nice rounded flavours of the chocolate truffle. The espresso also tastes a little more roasty the warmer this gets. The bitterness persists throughout the finish. Chocolate is the first to fade with coffee barely lingering on.
Some beers are just meant to be drank at a warmer temperature. This is definitely one of them. This is a great addition to the Yeti line.

22 oz. bottle. Pours black with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is deep roasted espresso, dark chocolate, bitterness from dark chocolate/coffee, a hint of green hops, and some alcohol. The flavor is deep espresso infused, smooth vanilla, dry, green hops early that disappears as it warms, dark chocolate, and some alcohol. Medium full bodied with a nice bitterness to the finish.

22oz bottle. Pour is a nice black velvet with a big brown, mocha head that is fluffy and retains well. Nose is oak, chocolate, coffee, mocha, sweet chocolate. Palate is velvety and full, leaves a clean mouth. Flavors of oak, light alcohol, chocolate and coffee with a slightly bitter finish. excellent.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Great Divide Tap Room. Lovely black and shiny, dense tan head, viscous and pretty. Sharp viney coffee aroma, nutty roast and milk chocolate. A hint of peanut butter in the nose that develops more fully in the taste. Dark chocolate, cocoa powder, mineral and salt water taffy, light blackberry finish. Very pretty, very intense, just a little wanting in depth and cohesion.

Poured an opaque black color with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, smoke and alcohol. Taste of vanilla, smoke, wood, roasted malt, espresso, chocolate, chestnuts, and light alcohol in the finish.

This poured a solid black color with a moderate tan head. The aroma contains some chocolate, espresso, and coffee. The flavor is rather rich with some espresso, milk, chocolate, dark fruit, and alcohol. Overall I really enjoyed this beer, nice impy stout.

SrSilligoose (3220) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 11, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2009 pours black with a nice tan head. leaves some nice lace on the glass. Big espresso, bourbon, bitter burnt chocolate, roasted malt aroma. reminded me of a KBS. seems like some age would help this one. a little hot at the moment, but good nonetheless. Too hot, actually. not enjoyable to drink a whole bottle.

22 oz bottle
A fairly recent arrival in Ohio I snatched a bottle off the shelves as soon as possible. It was money well spent. I may just have to pick up a second bottle to celebrate something important; this is a beer that everyone should buy at the first opportunity.

Aroma / Appearance - The deep black body was as dark as they can make a beer. The brownish crown gave a regal appearance. Creamy lacing accented the total visual appeal. Vanilla, smoke, chocolate, licorice, dark cherry, espresso, and caramel all made appearances as I reflected on the strength and depth of this beer.

Flavor / Palate - Bitter coffee, strong Belgian chocolate, and ash start things with a bang. Next comes anise, blackberries, raisins, vanilla, and roasted tastes. Lingering in the throat it sticks around for a long time. Balanced at 9.5% it has an evident alcohol presence but not enough to detract from an excellent beer. It only improves on an already fabulous base (regular Yeti).

(Sample Date: 3/15/2009 Source:Other) 22 oz 2008 bottle. Big roast and coffee aroma. Black with small tan head. Vanilla, coffee and roast dominate flavor with a caramelized malty sweetness. Medium body with a sweet roasty slightly astringent finish that is moderately bitter. Yum

Very woody and hot on the nose. Hints of vanilla and espresso as well. Pours a nice balck with a good brownish head that lasted just nice.. Close to full body with a smooth finish.. Carbonation is good. Flavor was oaky and coffee... Warming effect on the end.. Chocolate and roast malt too.. I think this will get a lot better when it warms up.. right now it is still good
