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.

Thanks eagle. Poured a dark black color and head a good size head. Aroma was of very good coffee and vanilla. Flavor was much the same, good bitterness to it solid vanilla and only a slight oak. This is a good one for sure.

Bomber shared with soccer290. I actually missed this beer while carousing my local liquor store. I am sure glad soccer290 was there to point it out to me! It pours a jet black color with a very nice brown head that rises up after it is poured. It actually looked like the head was growing on top of the brew. The aroma consisted of a LOT of coffee, roasted malt, and some chocolate and burnt wood. The taste was dominated by coffee with some hints of roasted malt, burnt wood, and chocolate. This brew lined my mouth after every drink and made me keep wanting more. It also left excellent lacing on the side of my glass also. Again, Great Divide impresses...

22 oz bomber shared with General66. Was very excited to see this at my local liquor store, as I loved Oak Aged Yeti (was what turned me on to stouts), and I love coffee in stouts. Pours a dark opaque black with a fluffy chocolate colored head that rose after the pour, then slowly dissipated. Smells of roasted chocolate, some oak character, and lots of coffee, with maybe a hint of vanilla. Tastes very similar, with the coffee/espresso becoming more apparent, and more masking of the other flavors. Goes down very smooth, with a bit of stickiness early, but eventually gets less sticky as it warmed (which was surprising). Very good beer, which I actually enjoyed more than Oak Aged Yeti, but thatís only because of the coffee character.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle. Deep thick pour with a long lasting very dark tan creamy head. Aroma was balanced between a light roasted coffee, sweet malt, roasted barley, and light chocolate. Flavor was silky smooth, velvety, and awesome with such a good blending of oak, vanilla, espresso, malt, chocolate, it goes on. Very well made brew with a thick and chewy mouth-feel. This was a well enjoyed beer.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2009 How I couldnít love an espresso oak aged stout, Iím not sure, and this didnít disappoint. Aroma of chocolate, espresso, malts, maple, and brown sugar, but with a little bit of a burnt aroma. Medium carbonation, a bit surprising for a stout. The flavor starts with the espresso, moves into caramel and then the bitter hoppy finish.

lemasney (398) - Trenton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2009
A deep, rusty brown body, wholly opaque, with a dark tan head. Mahogany in depth and mood. Scent of coffee, dust, earth, and wood chips. Taste is espresso syrup, roasted malt, coffee, earth, resin, and compost. Overall, itís another amazing, layered, and complex creation for the Yeti brand, and for Great Divide. Keep them coming.

some astringent burntness on the nose, and on the finish stop this from being a 5. the warm soft fuzziness that engulfs the front of the tongue far outweigh any deficiencies. I love to just keep a swig in the front of my mouth and rub my tongue through it.

Bomber in blind tasting, apparently to celebrate the end of my college career. Pours dark brown/black, opaque, and with a substantial brown head. Great lacing, Iím assuming a result of the generous hopping. Aroma has dark coffee initially, followed by sweet dark chocolate, roasts, and some later soapy-hops. On second or third sniff these hops become increasingly present. Flavor starts quite hoppy, with malt sweetness. Mid-palate has bold black-coffee-and-sugar and distinct roasted malt. Finish ends with nice bitterness, additional roasts, and a lingering hop finish. Wow. Coffee, hops, sweet malt, roasts . . . this beer has some of everything. And Iím not sure the final product is as full of pure goodness as either Yeti or Oak-aged Yeti. Perhaps the flavors just clash more then they blend. But overall this beer still tastes excellent, my second-favorite Coffee Stout to date.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours black as midnight and as ethan has taught me this is good. Pretty nice impy that is relatively dry for the style. Big coffee flavors amidst some light oak, vanilla, and roasted malts. A great beer.
