maybe my least favorite of the yeti's, which is to say that i still really liked it, but just that the espresso doesnt add much for me. pours dark and thick like they all do, with a lasting red/brown head and a lot of lacing. smells a it more like coffee than the regular yeti does, but it is not overpowering. the oak flavors are more prominent in this one, maybe becuase of the acidity of the coffee, which feels quite high to me. some bitter coffee notes in the finish as well. the feel is low carbonation and smooth, except for the acidity from the java. overall its not a beer id really want to drink a whole one of i dont think. the normal yeti and its oaked brethren have plenty of this espresso flavor already, and the addition of more throws off the ph to a funny level in my opinion.

750 ml bottle marked 12/19/2011 poured into a pint glass on 1/31/12.

Appearance: A rich dark brown that is totally opaque. One finger of an espresso colored head sits on top, but quickly recedes.

Smell: Roasted caramel malts and big coffee notes. Some chocolate in there as well, making me feel like I'm about to have dessert.

Taste: Bold roasted coffee flavors with significant malty sweetness. Finishes with a very mild hop bitterness and the alcohol hits too.

Mouthfeel: Heavy and average carbonation.

Overall: If you enjoy a cup of joe, you're probably going to like this version of Yeti. The coffee flavors definitely highlight the experience.

Black, or perhaps almost black, with a very dark, brown head. Smell has lots of chocolate and coffee. Smooth taste, with some (not altogether surprising) bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Solid and well-balanced for the style.
