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.

On tap at GABF. Brown black with a mocha head. Oak, roasted malt, cocoa aromas. Full body and very smooth. Luscious flavors of espresso , vanilla, molasses. Long finish. Fantastic.

ben4321 (4839) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 9/25/06

Aroma: A nice sweet nose of oak, vanilla, coffee, and roasted malts
Appearance: Dark brown color, a medium brown head, and lots of lace
Flavor: Flavor is strong coffee and milk chocolate malts with a nice light hop finish with lingering coffee flavors
Palate: Relatively medium-full body, with a silky/milky/creamy mouthfeel, a bit syrupy
Overall Impression: This beer melds its creamy mouthfeel and smooth coffee/chocolate flavors together to produce an almost shake-like beer. Really quite nice, and hard to believe that it is 9.5%, as the ABV is well hidden. I found this beer to be a quite enjoyable Impy Stout. I can see why it has such solid scores.

Pours a dark black with tan head. Aroma expresso, chocolate, roast, dark. Very sweet with bitter expresso finish. Warm. Good but not great

MrChopin (3726) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Jet black with a large tan head, lacing everywhere. Lots of chocolate, vanilla, and wood in the flavor, light hop. Espresso in the back, not very impressive. Flavor is similarly sweet, lots of chalky chocolate, stinging burnt roast in the back. Overly thin body, oddly empty, bitter finish. A little boozy with warmth. Too sweet and syrupy, and the roast bitterness doesn’t have much to compliment, but it’s still rather tasty.

OldGrowth (2935) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2009
bottle from Sams Quikstop. Good aroma, like the name says, Oak, coffee, a little vanilla. Brownish black color, good head, faded quick, no lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Nice that the oak doesn’t dominate the Impy stout. Thick body, creamy, mouthfeel, bitter finish. Well, pretty darn good. aroma got better as warmed, though flavor better cold, oak came out as warmed. Nice to roll on tongue. didn’t hit as hard as I was expecting for a near 10% beer. enjoyed it very much...

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Bottle at Springslickers fish fry. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, coffee, and dark fruit. Medium to full bodied with a somewhat soft texture. Flavor is pretty much espresso and dark roasted malts countered by a strong roast bitterness. Finish is dry and ashy with a lingering bitterness. Somewhat disappointing considering the source.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 18, 2009
22oz. bottle. Good coffee, coco and oatmeal aroma. Black body with dark chcolate milk colored head. Good coffee, oatmeat with some bittering. Medium creamy chcolate makes this one smooth on the palate. An enjoyable Impy Stout.

gorditoabd (629) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Bottle with another big shout out to coyotehunter. Good times. Pours a luscious black with a finger or two of almost grainy brown sugar head that laces and fades nicely to that lovely reddish-brown frosting. Aroma is strongly of espresso, chocolate, cherries, vanilla, and wood. Taste is substantially the same, with excellent movement throughout that array of flavors in the palate. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous, and oh-so-pleasant. Warmth and alcohol come through only at the end, but are well-balanced by the coffee flavors and light bitterness. Not too much more to say. An outstanding beer.
