G: Poured into a brandy snifter.

A: Dark as night with a nice, smooth, tan-colored espresso head.

S: Loads of espresso with some dark malt behind.

T: Overpowering espresso that is somehow balanced against the mild sweetness of the malt.

M: Heavenly. Sublimely creamy and the alcohol is hardly detectable.

D: Very, very drinkable. It's a hot, hot 86 degrees here in Chicago, and I still want more of this thick stout. Now that's an endorsement.

Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout (Great Divide Brewing Co.) 9.5%ABV Bottled on March 19, 2010 poured into a glass 01/01/2011

A - Similar composition to standard issue Yeti, but the bottle has a regal gold foil top.  Pours thick into a glass. Black body, very dark brown head (darker than usual) for an imperial stout.

S - Coffee, chocolate, roasted malts.

T - Incredible (as in quality, not quantity) smokey note.  While smokey oak is not the most dominant flavor, it is the reason to try this brew.  Creamy vanilla, tiny bit of bitter, with a coffee undercurrent.  The coffee tone is subtle enough to not detract from the overall experience, yet enough to add an interesting layer.

M - Silky smooth, finishes just as nicely as it begins. Wish the body was a little more substantial.

D - Dangerously drinkable.  No alcohol burn, and balanced.  A great offering from Great Divide-- try this.

bottled on dec 19, 2011, purchased from tyler's bottle shop, downtown raleigh.

aggressive pour to bring the head out, pours like motor oil.

a. opaque black, nice brownish head, which disappears fast, leaving heavy lace.

s. not as strong coffee aroma as you'd expect considering the coffee addition. smells like coffee though. faint amount of oak scent comes through as it warms up a bit.

t. sweet, but not too sweet. definitely taste the coffee/espresso. not overwhelmingly boozy considering abv. absolutely delicious though, and gets better as it approaches room temp. oak comes through ever so slightly as it warms as well.

m. chewy, thick, wonderful. perfectly carb'd

o. I wish I could drink this with breakfast as the bottle suggests, but I couldn't wait to dig in. overall, I think this beer is every bit as good as founders breakfast. if you like coffee stouts, this one is great, I hope to find it on draft to try again... and maybe get a couple bottles to age. all the yeti's I've had so far have been awesome, but this one may take the cake. would love to have some crime brûlée to pair, as the bottle suggests.

A-pours oily black with a nice sticky tan head

S-definitely a nice mix of oak and espresso as well as rich chocolate. Also a very noticeable hop presence as well, makes it a tad grassy. Good strong scent.

T-comes in with a great oak flavor along with a rich flavor of chocolate espresso. The oak is definitely most prominent here. It is long lasting with an awesome matching after-taste. Great flavors, nothing off.

M-thick and creamy with a dry finish

O-this has got to be one of the best easily obtainable stouts out there. I'm extremely impressed. The oak flavor is done so well, it's very prominent yet it isn't overdone. It's got so much flavor to it that I can imagine drinking this as a meal. Great drinkability, alcohol isn't noticeable

O-This beer was outstanding. It gives you a little chocolate malt sweetness and a large bitter aftertaste that finished with a smooth taste at the finish

I had a yeti sighting a few weeks ago with a bottle and enjoyed the bottle but having it on tap was significantly better.

Appearance: Black and thick with little lacing and no real head

Smell: Smelled of coffee, bitter chocolate, and malt

Taste: Strong tones of coffee, some nuttiness in there, bitterness is really mild with a very smooth finish. I was most suprised by the finish of this brew.

Mouthfeel - Very well balanced

Drinkability- This was the most suprising for me since I got half of a growler of the yeti. I was able to have 2 of these with no problem and could have had more. One word of caution is to watch out for the 9% alcohol. It snuck up on me and I was feeling pretty good very fast.

A: deep black body with a medium tan head that produces nice lace

S: coffee and burnt malts

T: deep coffee, burnt malts, chocolate, hint of vanilla, an all out taste assault

M: incredibly rich and smooth

D: as intense and rich as this beer is, the pieces come together to make a very drinkable beer

Incredible beer, I love Yeti, but the espresso aging smoothes away the sharp alcohol notes from normal Yeti and adds a wonderful coffee component.

Poured from slightly below room temp bottle into pint. Left an amazingly fluffy head the color burnt caramel that slowly faded into a nice lacing as the glass emptied. Smells like roasted coffee and malts. Mouthfeel is a little slick and creamy and at first tasted like a shot of espresso with an almost undetectable bitter woody finish... Really like this and would recommend over most other wood/barrel aged stouts I have has...

A: Pours jet black with a thin layer of chocolate colored head that recedes into some funky patterns up top. This beer looks amazing, like a true RIS.

S: Double espresso, dark roasted malts, vanilla, toffee, woody/oakiness, bittersweet chocolate, booziness

T: At first, you have just the slightest hint of vanilla, toffee, and malty sweetness, only to have it ripped away by a black, roasted malt/coffee/double espresso bomb, finished with a dry, bitter, oaky finish that has the slightest hint of earthy hops and espresso. Marvelous.

O: This is my favorite of all the Yetis, except that I haven't tried the chocolate yeti yet. This is an amazing stout under any standards, and if you have a chance to get one, get it. This one is bottled on Dec 20, 2010 so it's got a few months of age on it, but still plenty of flavor and bite.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Hoppin Frog snifter. Bottled January 2012.

A- oil, thick, shiny, beautiful small brown head with a whipped cream consistency

S- chocolate and coffee explosion, earthy wood too, feels like your nose is turning into a cappuccino machine

T- milk and dark chocolate overwhelms, but with a Willy Wonka's chocolate factory sense of awe, coffee is also present obviously, but is not as strong as bottles less than 6 months of age, the mellowed out coffee and chocolate flavor is superb, hop presence as well, really balances the sweet chocolate flavors, toast and a little vanilla too

M- thick and sticky, i was licking my lips so much my friends were becoming annoyed

O- If you like chocolate or coffee, then this is a must-have. Great imperial stout. The added hop characteristics really balance out this beer. I didn't think I would enjoy this beer as much as I did with a bottle date over a year ago, but I thought it was still great. Having it aged a bit was just as good as having it fresh, but for different reasons.

Had this at the West Ashley Good Beer Festival, and just now getting around to reviewing my notes.

I remember this being the highlight of the day.

A - Poured deep black into my tasting glass, with a foamy brown head.

S - Very "espresso" dark, sweet, bitter chocolatey coffee notes

T - Superb. There is a lot going on here, and maybe I can't completely grasp the nuances, but I got the espresso buzz mixing with some roasted malts and coffee flavors, with a mellowing out from some bittersweet chocolate.

M - Medium bodied, but silky and creamy. Smooth. Little carbonation feel.

Notes - I don't think I understood how hard this sucker was to come by until after the beer fest. I'm glad I got a chance to try it. Further edited upon trying it by the bottle.

From notes. Pours black, modest mocha head fades to ring, thick lacing. SMELL coffee, roasty, woody, malty, alc heat. Nice, but took some swirling to get much. Probably more if I'd let it warm longer. TASTE is roasty, woody, coffee, modest hop bitterness, chocolate, vanilla, hint of sweetness. Very smooth and complex. Delicious. FEEL thick, rich, creamy, viscous and smooth. Finishes clean. OVERALL wicked delicious, one of the best of the style.

A-Deep black with large mocha tan head that reduces to a thin cap and leaves nice lacing.

S-Take oak aged Yeti and add coffee. The addition makes it even better! Chocolate and coffee aromas swirl in a dance of decadence.

T-Sweet chocolate malt and bitter coffee with balancing astringency from the oak. Never becomes too sweet nor too dry and bitter. Great balance.

M-Medium-heavy body with nice lingering flavours and drying finish.

D-This is one of the most impressive coffee infused RIS's I have ever had. Simply awesome. Take oak-aged Yeti and crank it up to eleven!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz brown bottle into a St. Feuillien stemmed glass (snifter broken unfortunately). Bottled on Feb 12 2010 on label. Purchased at WIne Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA) for $10.99.

A: Opaque and dark as hell with substantial chocolate milk-colored 1-finger head with good retention for the ABV and style and spotty lacing mixed with more craggy formations.

S: Black coffee and vanilla drown out most other aromas but hops are prominent in the second tier. Roasted malt is mainly represented by the coffee element, but the oak is easy to smell with the vanilla and tempers the hard coffee and hops edges nicely. A light anise note is present too and alcohol lightly tingles the nostrils.

T: The flavor is big and bold with coffee and chocolate taking first prize, but leafy, tobacco hops a close second creating the effect of a coffee/cigar house flavor which has a bittersweet character. The oak is more smoothing in the flavor with a little alcoholic touch to the vanilla and licorice notes. Alcohol is barely detectable and could easily be mistaken for the vanilla notes. Superb and grabs you more than the understated OA Yeti which is good but subtle. I prefer this brew to OA Yeti but it's a close call compared to the big and brash Yeti regular.

M: Smooth, lush, and full-bodied with minimal carbonation. The finish and aftertaste are tinged with alcohol, which keeps the feel from reaching top marks.

D: Unbelievably smooth for the ABV and for all the flavors. A GD brew to be savored no doubt, but alcohol component is minimal and there is huge coffee and chocolate flavors to enjoy in a lush package. Great brew. Price is steep but for once in a while, this is a great brew. I tried this right after sharing a bomber of Lagunitas Cappucino Stout, and, as much as I like that beer, the differences were sorely obvious. I wouldn't want to age this and let the coffee flavor fade personally, but some time would probably smooth things out further.

Pours jet black with a brown head. In the aroma, coffee, oak, and bourbon notes. In the taste, dry coffee, quite oaky, and a chocolate like end. A smooth and medium to big bodied mouthfeel, with a dry coffee and small bourbon like aftertaste. Big coffee, nice bourbon/ oaky notes and hides the ABV.

It doesn't get any better. It pours a thick, viscous black inky looking liquid. The head is roughly a finger in size, and brown. It's the way beer should look.

Roasted coffee and smoke fill the nose. Enough said.

The taste buds pick up the same things as the nose. Roasted coffee is dominant, but not overbearing. In addition, there's some bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, and some woodiness to it.

This is a creamy beer, with some complexity. Early on, it's smooth and easy going. As it works its way to the back of your mouth, the bitterness starts to shine through. Despite the high alcohol, it's a very gentle and easy beer to drink.

For someone who likes dark, chewy beers, this approaches perfection. As the beer warms, the vanilla starts to come to the front and provides a balance of sweetness that really puts this beer over the top.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a beautiful dark as night black with a creamy copper head that sticks around and leaves huge walls of creamy lace.

The aroma is of roaste malts, strong robust esspresso, dark chocolate, toffee and a hint of booze. Subtle dark fruit notes blend in well with a nice woody, oak and hints of vanilla.

The taste is of rich dark chocolate, toffee, brown sugar and molasis with hints of dark fruit. This gives way to a nice oak character with some earthy hops in the background. The esspresso is in the front and in the afterbreath, it lingers a nice bitter note with a touch of vanilla. Complex and balanced.

Creamy, silky, and smooth. Overall, a very delicious and enjoyable beer.

A-Pours jet black. Has a great reddish brown head that dissipates quickly to a thin ring.

S-Smells just like coffee, but further inspection reveals the oak. Just fantastic smelling.

T- Just like the smell, it immediately tastes like espresso, but leaves a great oak aftertaste. Dangerously drinkable.

M-It has a thick, velvety body that is light on the carbonation.

O-It's hard to go wrong with any variety of Yeti, but this has to be my favorite by far. A great, balanced espresso flavor that doesn't leave an overly intense bitterness in your mouth makes this another stand-out from Great Divide.

T: Complex and extremely drinkable. Has great Oak presences and espresso/cocoa balance.

O: Incredibly smooth and you can put this in your coffee cup and no one would know the difference. Hard to say but this compares equally if not better than Founders Breakfast Stout. The oak characteristics makes its an exceptional beer.

I was very pleased to find this on tap last night. It just made its way to Pittsburgh and I wasted no time ordering first before my palate got fried. Poured into a 12oz snifter glass.

A: Not to be cliche, this this pours black as night with a solid one finger dark khaki head. The head is sticky with the normal Yeti sticky hop profile that laces all the way down the glass.

S: A shot of espresso right into this beer makes it smell glorious. Espresso dipped chocolate, creamy chocolate nougat, sweet vanilla and caramel round off the smell. The dry coffee though is predominant in this.

T: The taste is magical. The dry espresso blends so great with the harsh Yeti profile. Yeti is a rough beer in my opinion. The light espresso and coffee tames this beast into a great, highly drinkable beer. The beer overall is pretty dry with the coffee and dark roast, but some sweet caramel and vanilla creeps up towards teh end.

Oveall, this is my favorite Yeti yet. It is also the most highly drinkable. I will probably get a few bottles, but I have no idea how this will age due to the high amounts of coffee.

On tap at TJs Everyday.

A-Deep opaque brown to black with a creamy tan head and nice lacing.

S-Espresso dominates the nose with some sweet malt also.

T-More diverse than the nose might suggest. Sweet milk chocolate to start, then the roastiness and coffee/espresso notes take over. Espresso taste more muted than the aroma, and this is welcome. A surprising sweet finish tops it all off.

M-Creamy, rich but still medium bodied.

D-Outstanding drinkability. Creamy, rich, tasty and delicious.

this is one great brew -my first one - picked this one up yesterday at diciccio's in ardsley - bottled in march 2005 - poured into a snifter, where a vigorous pour yields a finger and a half of light brown head, which dissipates quickly - spots instead of lacing on the glass - the liquid itself is the darkest opaque brown - a light 'crema' , like an espresso's, remains on the surface - earthy woody aromas, along with good coffee scent - taste is unbelievable ! - espresso coffee mocha sweet as candy - extremely complex and extremely well balanced, as the hops and malts come through and pair with the complexity of flavor this incredible beer has to offer - mouthfeel is lingering, syrupy, and nice - alcohol is present, yet very well hidden within the incredible flavor profile - this 22oz. bottle was tasty and smooth - i wonder how it , with it's 4yr old bottling date, would compare to a current year's bottle - i'll have to find out - this is some really good stuff - perfect for this friday night at home.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a snifter glass.

Appearance is black which pours out thick leaving a frothy mocha/brown one finger head. It dissipates with in a minute or so leaving a thin cap.

Smell has espresso in it no doubt giving a nice coffee aroma with some hints of chocolate, vanilla and a good dose of malt. There is a mild hint of hops in the back as well.

Taste is nicely balanced, quite similar to the standard Oak aged Yeti but with a nice little edge with the espresso flavor. It has the same qualities of coffee, dark chocolate malt and the nice hop bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and smooth. Pretty pleasant on the tongue but not the same thickness as the regular oak aged Yeti from what I recall.

Drinkability is fantastic. Quite a flavorful brew that goes down nice and easy. Just about on par with that standard oak aged Yeti and a great choice for the style I'd say. I would certainly have it again. Now I just need to find the chocolate version and I'll be set.

Glad to see that the variants of Yeti have finally made it to Chicago. Poured into NB Globe glass.

A: just like the other variant, thick black pour, dark brown head, velvety appearance, good head rentention, very little lacing

S: huge coffee and chocolate, melded seamlessly... coffee is extra bold and robust, specialty grains back it up with big notes of roastiness and chocolate, some oak character comes to play in the back with the signature Yeti hop bite at the end. Lots going on here, it all seems to be very well balanced. Smells luscious.

T: rich notes of chocolate come first followed by stiff espresso, these two notes interplay nicely and provide a depth and richness. The oak isn't as prominent on the palate, the finish is big and hoppy. Another wonderful variant of Yeti.

MF: thick, creamy, velvety, low carbonation

D: probably my favorite Yeti... the added element of espresso seems to tie the hops in well with the big specialty grain profile.

Pours nearly as dark as the background on this page. Big, fluffy seriously dark tan head forms. Creamy and dense after a few moments of settling, a 1/2" blanket remains. Great lacing.
Smell is rich and ful of things dark. Toasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, dark fruits, molasses with notes of wood and hops to balance the dark side.
Taste is very nice. A touch on the ashy side for me, but very well-balanced with baking chocolate, coffee, toasted malt, hops, molasses and the oak.
Rich and very smooth, full-bodied with a touch of coating on the palate. Very light effervesence, apparently the pour took care of that. This is a fine concoction and well worth seeking out. L'Chiam!
