22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter at Bocktown Beer and Grill Monaca, PA

Pours pitch black with a finger of dark mocha head that quickly fizzles to a thin collar with sticky brown lacing. Espresso is present but not as dominant as I expected in the nose. Plenty of dark chocolate, ripe dark fruits and smokey molasses.

The texture makes an unforgettable first impression--soft, full, and creamy. Flavors mimic the aroma--it's like vanilla beans, dried plums and roasted hazelnuts draped in rich semi-sweet chocolate, washed down with a smooth espresso. No flavor steals the spotlight, but they work in perfect unison. Earthy hops support with just a hint of bitterness. Coats the mouth evenly but finishes crisp and clean, with the oak and alcohol leaving a dry toasty warmth.

What a pleasant surprise this Yeti sighting was. Among the best stouts I've had, and I hope we cross paths again soon. If you enjoy the rich fullness of espresso and dark chocolate as much as me, and you spot this beast, I can't recommend it highly enough.

On tap at McNellie's OKC. Pours a dark brown with a foamy brown head that doesn't last terribly long. Moderate lacing. Smells of chocolate, coffee and malt with a bit of fruit. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, plums and raisin. Definitely has a woody character compared to the original Yeti. The fruit and alcohol become more apparent as it warms a bit. Definitely a bit of bitter in this one. Medium mouth that oils the tongue. This is nice, but I personally prefer the original a bit more.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Carbon copy black with a tawny-brown head

Nose: Roasty vanilla beans, butterscotch candies, and dark chocolate morsels

Taste: Drinking Espresso Oak Aged Yeti is like selecting the molasses chew from a Russel Stover’s box and chasing it with a tasty espresso - delightfully bittersweet

Mouthfeel: Chewy and indulgent

Overall: Made for snow days, decadent brunching, and the occasional cinnamon donut fix
