Enjoyed on tap in a large tulip glass. Admittedly, I am a tremendous fan of this style. Yet, even accounting for my enjoyment of coffee stout, I found this to be an especially good example. The beer pours an opaque black color, with a moderately sized and quite thick tan head. Strong notes of roasty espresso comes through in the nose, as does a touch of roasted malt, and a surprisingly prevalent note of caramel. The palate begins with the intensity of a great espresso, with the added bonus of being cool and having a mouthfeel that is so smooth as to almost feel a bit slick. Medium to medium high English character malts come through, as does a touch of hop character. This beer, however, is about the espresso, and the interplay of the underlying stout with the former is excellent. Alcohol comes through in the slightest sense, and only to add depth. The finish is fairly clean, leaving a slightly roasty, slightly sweet, and slightly warming note. Overall, an excellent example of an increasingly popular style variant.

Bottle. 25.4 oz. Courtesy of and split with Vin. Pours a straight motor-oil, cola opaque black with a foamy, frothy head amber-beige head. Leaves beautiful tan lacing down the sides of the glass. Aroma of oatmeal, sugar, honey, grahm, chocolate, honey, vanilla bean, oak, and, of course, huge notes of espresso. Huge body on this stout; full, thick, rich, and velvety palate. A bit spicy on the front, with a huge warming finish that lingers after each sip. Excellently crafted and executed Impreal stout.

22 oz. from Fremont PCC. All of the Yetis are pretty good, but this is fantastic. Big coffee and chocolate notes. Lovely looking tan head. Tastes like dessert. Just an excellent beer.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Many offerings on draft and in bottle. Base Yeti is a solid stout and the oak, coffee treatment does a great job at complimenting the beer. Always grab a pour when I find it on draft.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2010 22oz - Black liquid under brown head. Roasted notes on nose, cocoa on palate. The oak aging moderated the flavors, avoiding the thwack I find with the Yeti. Hid the booze nicely.

Bomber. Pours like ebony with a thick as butter chocolate head. Aroma is smokey and chocolaty, with a nice and noticeable floral hint of hops. Drinks like a syrup, vanilla/chocolate sweetness, awesome dark and robust coffee flavor, and a little bit of that good hoppiness. Finishes sweet, like a mocha. Finally, another great coffee beer.

On tap at maproom. Pours very dark brown to black with thick tan head. Aromas of espresso, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and oak. Flavors of espresso, roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, oak, and light caramel. Solid mouthfeel and finish. Much better than the chocolate version. I tend to dislike coffee beers as a whole but this was top notch.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 10, 2010
On tap at Max and Joes. Pours extremely dark brown to black with a dark reddish brown head of large bubbles. The aroma is a ridiculously intense shot of espresso. In fact, theres likely more espresso in this than in a single shot of espresso. The coffee completely dominates and covers up all other aromas and flavors. This is a prime example of how liberace was wrong - too much of a good thing is not always wonderful. The delicious barrel-aged Yeti is simply ruined by too much coffee flavor.
