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.

Dark wood and sweet chocolate (or maybe sweet wood and dark chocolate) on the nose. There is a slight coffee hint, but its subtle. Heavy mouthfeel, almost milky dark chocolate to start, followed by an alcohol burn, finally turning to a pleasant espresso aftertaste. Very nice, very rich. A good breakfast in and of itself.

Yup, I believe....poured from the bottle. Thick soapy head lingers and clings. Big nose full of chocolate caramel and coffee. Call me nuts, but I find a red licorice in there somewhere. First bite is smooth creamy and sweet. The palate follows the nose. The finish is pleasing. Delicious. Yum

(Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout - Espresso Oak Aged ) Bottle 650 ml, acquired through a trade, can’t remember with who, thanks anyway! BB February ’15, served into a snifter, ABV 9.5% Pours a thick, black coloured beer, with a tall and thick dark brown head, with very good retention, leaving heavy lacing on the glass as it collapses. Aroma of vanilla, light alcohol, plenty of coffee, wood, roasted malts as it warms up. Intense taste with vanilla, less coffee than the aroma but still there, lots of chocolate now, light roasted malts, hints of the alcohol, mocha. Thick body with soft carbonation. Excellent.

Bottle. Black with a dark brown top. Oak aged, espresso, chocolate malty nose. Pretty much what the label promises. Full bodied, smooth soft, suitably sweet, finishing with a clean palate. A bit drying though, choco powdery. Very nice drink allinall.

Pours a dark black with brown head. A strong espresso aroma. Taste is very strong with espresso, chocolate, and bourbon. A lingering aftertaste of malts and dark alcohol.

Draft. My new all-time top beer. Very similar to the regular Yeti Stout, but with a subtle addition of oak flavors, making an already top beer into an exquisite creation. Sweet, strong coffee beer. It doesn’t get any better than this.

Tasted from draft. Pours black with dark brown head. Excellent coffee aroma with some dark chocolate. Taste is similar to aroma. Big time coffee with dark chocolate and some caramel and toffee. Pretty full bodied. Not too drying on the palate. Definitely one of the best coffee stouts

Turtles (935) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2015
650ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a tan, big, creamy head that stays long and leaves a lot of lacing. Proper coffee aroma, like pushing your nose down a coffee grinder, fresh roasted espresso beans, strong coffee, oak, dark chocolate. Low carbonated, very creamy and slightly bitter, rough, chewy mouthfeel, full body. The flavor is deep and complex, oily espresso beans, oak, vanilla, marshmallow. Finish bitter with espresso beans and dark chocolate.

Zakoon (370) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2015
650ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours pitch black with a dark brown head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is lots cold coffee, some espresso, roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, earthy, wood and a little tobacco. Flavour is slightly sweet and medium bitter. Full bodied, very smooth and oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is coffee, roasted malt, a little acidic from the coffee. Really good coffee stout.
