black with nice brown head. earthy coffee aroma with a little vanilla. The roast malt and espresso flavor had a nice amount of hops for some bitterness. Borresteijn (7174) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2010
On tap at Beer Temple. Pitch black colour, beige-brown head. Aroma of hops, espresso, moccha, chocolate, hard roasted malts. Flavour is light sweet, chocolate, moccha, coffee, roasted malts, more milk chocolate in the hoppy bitter finish, some lingering espresso as well. Medium to fullbodied, sticky mouthfeel. Very good, best coffee stout I’ve had so far. Oak aging almost unnoticed, which is a good thing imo. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2010
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. aracauna (3609) - Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2010
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. ttutony (920) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2010
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 I’ll say this is my favorite. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2010
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. italianjohn (3143) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2010

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.
