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.

"The final of the Yeti series tasting, and probably the most interesting (although it’s not the best). The espresso added a deep coffee quality along with a very high non-hop bitterness that eventually seemed to overpower me, but kind of in a good way. Chocolate, burnt toast, intense coffee, and dark fruits are all thrown around....but the espresso and it’s bitterness continue to push forward with it’s might. The glass I enjoyed was more than enough of this roller coaster."

Black appearance with a dark tan head. Aroma is very strong roasted coffee, fairly intense. Flavor is intense coffee with a somewhat bittersweet finish. Overall, rather intense but pretty excellent.

Draft, Uber. Black pour, dark dense fluffy tan head on it. Very appetizing looking in a glass. The aroma is pretty dominated by the espresso, very dark and bitter with a bit of acid, vanilla, wood, and overall very roasty. This gives an impression not unlike a mocha upon drinking, with rich coffee flavor, chocolate notes, and vanilla being all present. Hints of dark fruit and anise. Stays on the bitter side and with an herbal hoppy finish. Has a rich, thick body on it as with all the Yetis. This was a great way to round out a night, and thankfully it did not give me enough of a caffeine buzz to overcome the beer and keep me awake.

glennmastrange (2897) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Bottle. Moderate aromas of toasted, dark chocolate for the malt, moderate perfume and resin for the hops, earth for the yeast, with background notes of tar, strong coffee and alcohol. Head is average size, frothy, brown with godd slippery lacing and good laegs, and is mostly lasting. Coor is black. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium to full, creamy and has a soft carbonation and a finish that’s both very dry and sticky on th lips. Bold in many respects, this Imperial Stout is a mouthful and is definitely a beer to be savored slowly.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 One of my favorite imperial stouts. Thick jet black pour with large creamy mocha head. Nose is delicious Belgian Chocolate, Coffee and caramel malt. Taste is very smooth and thick chocolate, coffee, vanilla bean, smoked malt and burnt wood. 4.8 (original rating)

TheBeerGod (6241) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Bottle. Midnight black with a dense, frothy, dark brown head. Strong bitter hops and dark, bitter, oily coffee in the nose. Taste is strong coffee, oily coffee beans, vanilla, molasses, bitter hops, citrus notes, and roasted malt. Very rich taste with big coffee notes. Body is thick and chewy with a creamy, dense carbonation. Ends with more coffee and bitter hops, oily coffee beans, roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, and molasses.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2010
Tap @ Beertemple. Black colored brew. Very roasted aroma of malts, chocolate and espresso. Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate and espresso too. Very thick and creamy, you can almost eat it with a spoon. It’s a bit too thick and dry maybe, loses drinkability.

Bomber. Pours viscous dark black - pretty much the darkest I’ve seen in a pour. Nice deep brown head, too. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar, roasted malt. Flavor has a strong malt backbone, but the espresso is the main feature. I’ve become rather picky in my coffee beers about the coffee aspect, because I’ve had a number of them that just taste like old used coffee grounds - that smell they have when they’re in the trash. This beer has a little of that, but it meshes well enough with fresh coffee flavors to not really detract from the beer. The big thick palate is wonderful. It would be really hard to give this a bad rating, especially when the base beer is so delicious. It’s not the best coffee flavor I’ve had in a beer, but it’s definitely one of the nicest coffee stouts I’ve encountered in terms of the full picture.

Really delicious imperial stout, mhm. Aroma is heavy on the espresso, dark cocoa, and burnt sugar. Taste is much the same. The mouthfeel is nice, thick, and creamy. Really great beer. I think this is my favorite version of Yeti that I have had (oak aged and regular).

4.9
Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 25, 2010
A beauiful dark wig a ridiculously heavy foam like whipped cream with a coffee colouring. Creamy sweetness on the nose with delicious dark roast coffee and milk chocolate tickles. Rich rolls of bitterness and buttery pan-au-chocolat fill the mouth. Vanilla milkshake and frappé coffee flavours dominate. Deliciously thick and creamy. Probably my number one beer.
