Tasted side by side with regular Yeti and Oak Aged Yeti, so there's some comparison.
22 oz. bottled 02.12.2010 poured into a Chimay chalice. Poured very very dark - even the stream was opaque! The color of the huge head can put the color of some feebler stouts to shame! As the head subsided, some lacing stuck around on the glass and upon sipping or swirling, distinct legs were seen. Very good looking stout!
The regular Yeti smelled of sweet malts, strong roast with some vanilla-cream undertones, and hops. Espresso version had all that Yeti brought to table and then some heightened coffee & cream notes.
Fruity and bittersweet tasting, with distinct dark chocolate notes and intense roast. Clean and warming finish. The Espresso version stood out in terms of a present coffee soul to its acidity and was easily the favorite. As far as I know, the coffee flavors fade over time so I am going to buy this one again as soon as I get paid, because this is the season!
Yeti and Oak Aged Yeti were both smooth but not to the extent of velvety and the Espresso version felt silkier than others. The carbonation was spot on, and while the body seemed a little thin at times, it was still quite "meaty". Excellent stout with great drinkability for its alcohol and size.
Scores: 5, 4, 4.5, 4.5, 4.5
