Tap... Poured black with a medium, brown head. A great fusion of beer and coffee with lots of roast, coffee, mocha, chocolate, sweet, vanilla grains in there. Wood-like tones lent to a smooth, boozy finish.

Funny. The first thing I notice in this espresso oak aged imperial stout is actually the hops. Bold and fresh, they complement the roast and coffee nicely. The coffee is evident, but avoids tipping into that ashy quality that can make other coffee stouts a little less pleasant. Great beer.

Pitch black with a brown head. Coffee and woody scents on the nose, but coffee really dominates. Strong roasted character on the palate with bitter coffee notes. Really, really good beer.

Love the Yeti and lean towards coffee in my stouts - so really looking forward to this one. Bomber from Liquor Loft. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee with piney hops in the background. Taste is nice mix of sweet chocolate malts and coffee bitterness. The espresso comes out a little more in the long even bitter finish. Texture is a nice thin to medium and oily. Very drinkable. Well balanced. Great stuff. Would love to sit all of the Yetis side by side for a proper comparison - but Ill say this is my favorite.

This batch of beer was bottled March 5, 2010. This is the fourth version of Yeti that I have sampled only missing the barrel aged version and like all of the others, it was very good. The beer pours black with a medium brown head. The aroma is strong coffee with some chocolate and some light hop character. The flavor is strong coffee with some strong pine hop character. There is also a little chocolate but not as much as was in the aroma. Thick, creamy mouthfeel and low carbonation. I have a 15-month old bottle of this as well that was sent to me by HopHead101 and I look forward to seeing how the beer, specifically the hops, age.

Pours a very dark, thick black with a big tan head-Mmm looks like dessert. The aroma is a very nice coffee roast, wonderful. The taste is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak with a bitter ending. The mouthfeel on this beer is simply wonderful, it is so thick and creamy and coats your mouth nicely. This is a big beer and a lovely Imp. Stout. My favorite from the Yeti clan.

22 oz bottle from GAManiac from our very first trade. Thanks, Grant! Pours a fairly thick pitchblack opaque pour, dark and oily with a moderate darker brown head, laces well, stays pretty large. Aromas are a blast of silky roasty coffee, vanilla tannins, some dark chocolate, roasted malts and some caramel sweetness. Bitterness from hops is died out, the espresso is heavenly, strong and sturdy with good roast, vanilla, cocoa. Initial is much more bitter than anticipated, hops and wet oak with raw coffee flavor, espresso and good roast, ashy smoke, some sweetness but really quite roasty and bitter, earthy hops of floral and some pine. This is definitely Yeti, the coffee is very nice, bitter and roasty with some cocoa coming up, vanilla tannins cool and mellow towards the back of the palate, very nice. The nose and actual taste seem very different. Very oaky and espresso soaked aroma, taste brings it back to roast and bitterness. Very good!

March Madness tasting -

Aroma: HUGE notes of coffee. Nothing new there. I mean, if it smelled like passion fruit wed have some issues. Coffee dominates the aroma, some ashy/charred notes too but the coffee does take center stage and its well done.

Appearance: Jet black body, brown creamy 1" head, little lacing.

Taste: Coffee dominates but the hop bitterness is clearly there. Dark chocolate, oak, black licorice also pop in with some notes of molasses but its just full-on, pedal-to-the-metal, take no prisoners coffee in this stout.

Overall: Its rather one-dimensional but it does that one-dimension pretty damned well I think. If you enjoy a coffee stout, this is no doubt for you (and me).
