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.

Pours an opaque night time black with a very dark caramel head. Huge vanilla oak, coffee and roasted malt aroma. Smells almost like burnt coffee, but that is not a bad thing. Taste is chocolate to oak to coffee to a bitter hop finish. It is a medium to full bodied mouthfeel with a linger of bitter chocolate for an aftertaste. This is a well constructed beer. Good balance and no inconsistencies.

There aren’t many beer releases that can compete with the following and praise given to Great Divide’s Yeti series. I’m inclined to say that each one is deserving. Take Espresso Oak Aged Yeti, for example. It pours like sludge (except with an even darker color) and has a fluffy, cocoa-colored head. Smells reveal burnt malt, tobacco, slight acridity, espresso, and woodsiness. And the taste? Roasty, smoky, oaky, earthy, and probably other -y words I can’t identify. Despite the intense flavors, mouthfeel is creamy smooth. Now that I’ve had this Yeti release, I’m left with a question. The question isn’t Should I have this again? but What should I pair with it when I do? Breakfast fare as per its suggested food pairings? Or a bold, dark cigar? Decisions, decisions.

Bottle. A- Tobacco, roasty, smoke, woody, cocoa, subtle coffee, leather. A- Black color, black liquid, dark brown head. T- Tobacco, leather, subtle smoke, oak, subtle espresso, roasted. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, strong finish. O- Not a whole lot of the espresso notes here in the nose or taste as I was expecting. You get the regular Yeti with the oak age here and just subtle additions of coffee. The big noticeable thing is what seems like tobacco and leather. Not what I wanted, but still excellent.

Cunningham (5327) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2015
Black as the darkest dungeon with a creamy beige head. Ok lacing. Loads of espresso in the aroma. Also some oak and chocolate. Thick oily stuff with a smooth mellow carbonation. Good balance between sweetness and bitterness. Actually a pleasant round sweetness. Dominant espresso in the flavor also. And some chocolate, oak and mild fruity. Powerful evening sipper.

Bottle shared with daje, Simonsen & edvard at The "Esp0r #2000 Weekend in The Woods" 2014
Jet black, massive dense dark brown head. Smell of oak, espresso, coffee, roast, dark malts, quite exquisite. Heavy sweet, more coffee, espresso and roast, quite oily texture, a touch of sour, exquisite feel. Moderate bitter. Totally this is just a splendid beer

Dark opaque black brown, deep tan head. Deep roasted espresso, dark berry, earthy. Bitter with some small amount of sweetness. Heavy, long ass finish. Excellent.

ibrubeer (180) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bomber. Aroma of roast, bitterness, and a touch of wood. Dark brown color, with dark brown head, and tight bubbles with great lacing. Tastes like a terrific imperial stout, with perfect bitterness, roost character, and light wood flavor. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a great beer! Doesn’t taste like 9.5% at all!

Rich, bitter dark chocolate and espresso dominate this one. Undertones of toast, toffee, brown sugar, rich malts, oak and hints of raisins. Coffee and tart finish. Creamy without feeling too heavy. Fantastic!

SB, internetbeställningssortiment från Örebro leverans Lund. Otroligt kompromisslös. Allt på topp. Svår att beskriva i sin komplexitet. Morgonsup för grumliga dagar..

It’s always great to try a new yeti Malty-sweet coffee aroma. Smooth, impressive, nuanced taste. A little java acidity and cool morning coffee fullness. Flavor profile shifts around on the palate to an unexpected cool finish.
