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.

aroma is fairly complex from coffee beans, roasted malts and wet wood. The taste isnít as smooth as the standard Yeti, it is more harsh and sharp, but there is some vanilla and chocolate notes underneath. It is both smooth and harsh at the same time. There is also notes of figs, nuts and wood. Oh, the complexity. Sadly the sting from both the coffee and some alcohol notes wins the race, and it is not as enjoyable as the standard Yeti.

Fantastic, and something I need to keep in the fridge year round. It smells like oak, tastes like coffee, espresso, and a smooth porter all rolled into one. I can't drink more than 1 or 2, but those are an absolute treat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LearninBeer (391) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottled on March 5, 2009. The aroma is malts, caramel, coffee, roasty. Pours black with brown frothy head, fully diminishing with excellent lacing. The taste is medium bitter. The body is full, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter and long. Very Good, Damn Good!

kevinator (1056) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Magnifique! Another great spin on a great beer and style. Strong roasted malt and coffee aroma. Very dark like black coffee. Hold the cream and sugar. Thick, oily and coats the mouth. Maybe a little grainy as well. Strong roasted and toasted flavors up front with a lingering bitterness and acidity from the espresso. Chocolate flavors as well. A must try.

Bottle from Systembolaget (97 SEK). Powerful with very good aroma and taste of coffe and malts. But probably not for breakfast...
