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.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a opaque no visible carbonation dark brown colored body. The aroma was brown malt dark malt and woody. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt hops roasted malt dark malt and coffee. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Mind blowing, the absolute best coffee stout that I’ve ever had. It is refreshingly bittersweet with cocoa to back it up. Absolutely incredible... Pours pitch black with a nice head and lacing... smell is velvety dark chocolate and espresso coffee with a touch of wood... taste is the same as advertised by the aromas... mouth feel is pure velvet, alcohol is there any? ....nuff said!

Bottles 02-09. Excellent pour with an opaque black body and a dark tan, mostly full, mostly lasting, pillowy, frothy head which a leaves significant frothy head throughout and a frothy lace all over. Nose is nice and pleasant with lots of cedar hops and dry oak, espresso is prominent but not dominant with a sweet and smoky tone, bitter chocolate undertones, vanilla, burnt caramels, and light molasses. Flavor is much of the same but combination of the oak, hops, and espresso bitterness is quite a kick in the mouth; again the scorched oak and cedary hops begin the flavor progression, the sweet and smoky espresso is more bitter than the nose led on, vanilla beans, chocolate notes are almost bakers’ chocolate like, and just hints at some burnt caramel and a whiskey tinge. Palate is nearly perfect as well; a bold warmth, more than full, velvety, round, viscous, and soft to lively. Finishes bitter with only a bit of chocolate and caramel dissipating into lingering espresso, cedar, and dry oaken whiskey notes. It is hard for me to say a bad thing about this one with a base beer which I like and the the oaked Yeti which I love, but it just does not live up to the original oaked. Perfect look, perfect palate, nice notes, but maybe the espresso took away from some of the malt complexity, although added to the bitterness. A very, very nice beer but I would maybe like to change the oak a bit or maybe brew the original with espresso? Nevertheless a very nice Imp from GD.

deyholla (8334) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle. Poured a black with a dark brown head that laced nicely. Aroma was full of espresso notes with a slight undertone of chocolate that brought out a mocha flavor. That flavor battled a bit with the oak, hop and alcohol notes on the nose. Flavor was full of espresso with a nice bite of alcohol. Nice and thick on the tongue.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle shared with Savvy1982 and Macadem. Pours black with a mocha coloured head. Nice lacing. The aroma is quite hoppy and green with chocolate, coffee, soy sauce, herbs hiding behind the hops. This isn’t what I was expecting on the nose. The taste is completely different from the aroma. Milk chocolate, coffee, bourbon, hops and oak. Mouth feel is thin. I like this, but I don’t love it right now. It seems a bit boozy and a little sloppy. This bottle needed to age at least a year. But I see great potential.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 7, 2009
22oz., bottling date Mar. 6th, ’09. Nose is indeed full of espresso, along with notes of dark chocolate, alcohol, roasted malt, faint vanilla and cream. Opaque ebony color with a thick brown head that subsides, leaving some nice lacing as it goes. Flavor is a tasty melange of espresso bean, cocoa, oak, vanilla, spicy, earthy hop flavor, generous bitterness and peppery alcohol. Warming, creamy and smooth on the palate, finishing dry and with a rich, full body. Another winning variation on a theme from this brewer.

22 oz bottle served in a clear pint glass. Pour was opaque with thick foaming dark head. Excellent lacing with this one. Nose is malt, coffee, roasted notes, vanilla, and caramel. Taste is much the same, but comes off, as well as finishes, much bitter then I was expecting. I could have used a bit less of the bitter factor, but it was a pretty decent brew despite this. The aroma was my favorite part of this beer.

wavers1 (916) - Notown, California, USA - SEP 2, 2009
bottle courtesy of . pours a black viscous syrup with a nice 2-3 finger dark brown head thats very dense and creamy leaving lacing like a chocolate milkshake. nose is of huge roasting coffee, licorice, chocolate, caramels and other heavy burnt sugars. taste is of a thick coffee milkshake with some bitter coffee grounds in it. at this point i’m expecting to find grounds in the bottom of this bottle! silky, sweet, bitter,very nice.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2009
Bottle, shared with hobbersr and macadem. Pours inky black with a fine dark tan head, good lacing. Nose is very hoppy, exceedingly so. This was a super-fresh batch, or an off bottle. Either way, big Three-C nose, pine plus cigar ash, roasted malt, coffee, hops really detract from the beer though. Must be far far too young. Palate is huge milk chocolate, hops are present, but restrained and acceptable. Roasted malt, coffee, a touch of oak on the finish, very tasty, shame about the nose though. Must get an older bottle to re-rate in future.

The Espresso Yeti acquits itself far better than the Chocolate Yeti. The original Yeti still reigns supreme. The Espresso does what it says on the label by whacking your palate with coffee flavor...some derived from the Yeti itself, the more forward coffee flavor derived from the espresso proposition. Very good...just not as good as it’s ancestor/predecessor.
