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.

elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Pours an opaque, deep, dark brown. Head is a pillowy, medium brown that dissipates quickly and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is a combination of roasted chocolate malts and alcohol. Taste is very much in line with the aroma--the bittersweet flavor of the roasted malts predominates, with some bright, almost fruity notes provided by the coffee. I didn’t smell the coffee, but I can certainly taste it, and it adds a great deal of character to this stout. Not overdone, but definitely present. Aftertaste is slightly of alcohol, but again, not too strong. Palate is somewhat thin, with lively carbonation--I would have expected something a bit oilier. Overall, I think this is a fine balanced stout. Although explicitly an espresso stout, the coffee plays a supporting role to the chocolate malts, which are the star of the show. But the interaction between the two, with a roasted flavor and a somewhat restrained presence of alcohol, leads to a stout whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts. My only disappointment here is with the palate, which I wish had a wee bit more body--but that’s a very minor point. Compared to the Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti, I do think this one is the superior brew. It’s more flavorful, less alcoholic, and somewhat more balanced. But do try both.

Flaska hos VictorSTR, mörk som natten tycker faktiskt att den vanliga yetin är godare, smakar lite för mycket kaffe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark pour. Really strong flavors of coffee and roasted malts. Almost too heavy and dark for all but the coldest nights. Still as I finished the very strong drink, I thought it got better and better. Well done

Dazz3 (1477) - Hällefors, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a big brown head. Smells salty roasted malt, vanilla, dark chocolate. Tastes spicy, salty roasted malt, vanilla a bit licorice, coffee bitterness with a similar finish.

@Nedre Mölla 13/4-14. Flaska från Systembolaget. Arom: Rejält med kaffe/kaffebönor, en aning lakrits. Smak: Dito. Hyfsat fyllig, lång avslutning med trevlig beska.

Staffan47 (809) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2014
Efter SM 2014 hos Wallén. Cappuccinofärgat skum. Svart och tät. Nyskuren chili och kaffe i doften, med tyngdpunkt på chili. Rund och len. Had förväntat hög beska, men är i bra balans. Ej bättre än originalet vill jag minnas. Ej heller bättre än kaffestouten som fick guld i folkets val på SM.

chribban (152) - SWEDEN - APR 4, 2014
As always with Yeti: pitch black with a dark, brown head.

Nose: Coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, espresso, cream, vanilla and oak.

Taste: Espresso (of course), dark chocolate, oak, roasted malt, vanilla, caramel and some orange.

Mouthfeel: Great, big, complex structure with a swetness that compensate for the bitterness in just the right way! Full body with light carbonation. Creamy... so good!

Overall - Smooth, oaky, vanilla, chocolate, creamy taste with a lot of love! GO get it!

BierMeHoos (20) - Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2014
Great beer. It pours dark black with a cherry cream colored head. Chocolate and rich malt hit the senses. The flavor is even better. Rich, bitter baker’s chocolate and coffee up front, then a smooth caramel at the swallow, followed by a slightly bitter blast to finish the sip. Very good beer!

Bottle, about one year old. Pours jet black with a fine tan head. Aroma of vanilla, oak, fruitiness, toast. Sweet up front, huge body, oak and roasty bitterness, chocolate, coffee, warmth. Like a nightcap for the winter. Bring it on, spring.
