Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout is a new addition to the Yeti clan. A generous infusion of Denvers own Pablos 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. Its official, you can now have Yeti with breakfast.

Suggested food pairings: Breakfast burrito, eggs Benedict, hash browns, cheesecake, creme brulee.

On tap at Churchkey DC. Pours an opaque, viscous black with a creamy, lacing brown head. Aroma is coffee, nuts, chocolate, toast, milk chocolate. Flavor is heavy on the coffee, toast, grains, nuts, dark chocolate, a little cherry. Finish is super smooth, a little dry with some coffee bitterness through the end.

Tap - union jacks - black pour with tan head. Aroma of coffee dominates. Flavor of coffee, licorice, malt, and some alcohol. Really good - flawless for a coffee type stout.

Thick black pour with a creamy tan head. Huge coffee aroma and flavor, along with roasted malt, vanilla, wood, and a hint of hops on the finish. Very good stuff.

My Bottom Line:
Luxurious coffee and dark chocolate offer this Imperial Stout a generous flavor profile, leading to roasted malt bitterness and much satisfaction.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A tower of foam slowly crumbles into the brown-edged blackness.
-The cushiony carbonation is perfectly calculated with the dextrin levels, sculpting a very comfortable mouthfeel for a dessert brew.
-I cant say this is complex, but the malt flavors and coffee beans, combined with the excellent mouthfeel, make for a very good Imperial Stout.
-The oak aging adds some personality, but it is overshadowed by the malts and coffee. And I think I prefer it this way.

22oz. Bottled on 02/13/2009. Wow this is good stuff, definitely my favorite of the various Yeti barreled beers. Pours a viscous black with a nice collar of tan froth that laces nicely. Strong aromatics with roasted coffee and dark chocolate dominating the nose. The flavor was somewhat different than expected with significantly less bitterness than the standard Yeti. Notes of espresso, ash, cocoa, vanilla and malt sugar with a mild bitterness in the background to keep it from being too sweet. Velvety and creamy mouthfeel that is neither thin nor syrupy. Carbonation is medium and the espresso and ash flavors linger in the finish. Alcohol is masked throughout. Surprisingly the beer isnt much different after a year in the bottle than it was when I first tried it last March. Perhaps it is slightly smoother, but the difference is subtle. Dangerously drinkable and overall an excellent coffee stout.

Black color with a medium head. Big espresso aroma, with some vanilla and charred oak. Really unexpected flavor... black pepper, spice, ash and smoke. Where the hell did this come from?! Very light espresso, a pinch of vanilla and some roasted malt. Id put this in the same category as their Chocolate Oak Yeti: enjoyable, but tastes nothing like what the name would suggest.
