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 didnít 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 thatís a very minor point. Compared to the Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti, I do think this one is the superior brew. Itís more flavorful, less alcoholic, and somewhat more balanced. But do try both.

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 doesnít 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 (593) - 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 (274) - 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.

Similar to its other oak aged yeti cousins, but with a distinctive flavor of coffee. Very well done.

22 oz bottle shares with Spencer. 2013 vintage. The pour is a nice black with a dark khaki colored foamy head with some great lace. The aroma is a little more reserved than I would expect. There is a strong oak and subtle coffee. Chocolate malts and a light alcohol twinge make up most of the back end. There is is a light dark fruit and tobacco combo that I like. The flavor is surprisingly disappointing. There is a lot of toast and minimal oak and coffee. The coffee doesn't make much of a presence at all, but that could be from age. It's bitter and roasty, like a stout should be, but I was hoping for more. The mouth feel is excellent. The carbonation is soft and velvety and helps it stick around and cling. The aftertaste is lingeringly boozy and bitter. I just wish the coffee made more of a difference ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
