Espresso Oak Aged Yeti pours black into the glass with a moderately thick brown head on top. The foam fades away slowly leaving behind a netted pattern of lace on the glass.

The aroma has lots of coffee with some chocolate, roast malt and dark fruit. I'm not picking up much oak.

Each sip of this full bodied beer is smooth and creamy, a little oily with mild carbonation. The flavor is much like the aroma, dark roast coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, and roast malt. Some oak notes come through at the end. Finishes dry with lingering coffee and oak.

Lots of flavor in this beer. Coffee and chocolate dominate, but other flavors come through as it warms. Great mouth feel too.

Black with a retaining beige head.

Espresso and cream.

Coffee stouts can fry your taste buds but this Yeti does not. The oak's subtle, the espresso's pronounced but that nor the alcohol gives much of a bite. That said, it's a year old bottle. A simple stout that's top of the type.

Carbonation is just right.
