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.

22oz bottle. Pours a deep black with a thick and rich burnt tan head that leaves some sticky lacing. Roasty...slightly chard malt, coffee, molasses, licorice, oak, vanilla. Nice balance on the nose. Body is lighter than I was anticipating. Sweet and smooth up front with sweet dark fruity notes. Moves right into balanced coffee flavor and then some bitterness on the end. Also pick up vanilla oak notes throughout. Super smooth and drinkable with the abv well subdude. Nice stuff.

Bottle 08 from W&CP. Pours pitch black with foamy tan head. Strong aroma of coffee over dark malts and chocolate. Flavor is relatively smooth and complex, strong black coffee, very slight undertone of dark red fruits, also slightly sour/acidic in the finish. I imagine this will only get better with age, too bad I donít have another.

Bomber from Knightly Spirits...Ive been waiting to meet this beast for a long time...Pours black with a very thick brown head...about as intimidating as a real yeti...(maybe as intimidating as a real yeti aged in oak)...Aroma is sweet coffee and mollasses...and then...Love at first sip! Delicious! An Amusement park in my mouth! tons of roasted espresso, slight bitterness, burnt oak...i would take this as a dessert after my dinner every night (although im not sure it would compliment 3 blackjack tacos from taco bell all that well)...Thick smooth mouthfeel that can warm you up on a cold winter day....Go ahead and hate on me for the high rating...but this shit is damn near perfect in my book...

Headbanger (3542) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2009
22oz bottle served in a Snifter on 10/27/09 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-Pours black with a huge tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and vanilla. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and slight alcohol. This full bodied brew is well balanced and well done. A great addition to the Yeti lineup.

kramer (5395) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2009
22 oz bottle. Black pour with a huge tight bubbled creamy chocolate brown head that lasted forever and left thick sheets of lacing. Big and thick roasty nose with lots of espresso. Not a whole lot of oak, but not too surprising. A little burnt and earthy smelling, but I like it. The roast and coffee battle for supremacy with some light oak and alcohol on the finish. A little heavy on the malt bitterness with some moderate hopping on the back end. Pretty restrained alcohol for 9.5%. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and heavy but not syrupy or cloying at all. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall pretty decent, not sure if itís a whole lot better than the regular Yeti, but it was worth trying.

Blew back a bunch of samplers at GABF 2009. You wonít need to have morning coffee after a couple of these.

Bottle. Dark tarry black pour with a thick hot chocolate top pour. Dark mocha and toast on the nose. Nice, well-balanced coffee and cane syrup with powdered cocoa and green wood and EtOH on the fringe. EEEEE. Love it.

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bomber, bottled on 3/6/09. Poured deep brown with a thick, creamy cap of head that wasnít much lighter than the liquid. The aroma picked up rich, roasted espresso and a blend of chocolates accented by vanilla beans, oak, and more toasted brown malts.. darker spice and earthy hoppage as well.. balance was great! The flavor found espresso and molasses at the dense core with layers of vanilla and cocoa around.. oak and prickly alcohol warmed up the edges.. vanilla joined coffee on the lengthy finish. Heavier-bodied with great balance on the palate.. nice creamy feel, especially on the middle. Iíd love to see this more readily available.

Pours a deep rich black with a tan head. Nice coffee aroma with some hint of oak. Full bodied flavors of espresso coffee and finishes with a roasted bitterness.
