Notes / Commercial Description:
A generous infusion of Denver's own Pablo's espresso adds yet another layer of complexity to this beer, combining with the vanilla oak character, intense roasty maltiness and bold hop profile to create a whole new breed of mythical creature. It's official: You can now have Yeti with breakfast.

Nose: strong coffee, strong roasty barley. To much roasty-ness going on, a bit overpowering.
Palate: coffee and roast up front, big surprise. after thinking about it for a bit too long a bit of vanilla became reconizable. there was a bitterness from the hops, but I could not get much hop flavor, not that I would want any, but the bitterness was a bit superfluous.
Finish: burnt, roasty, and a little more vanilla. dulled hop hints.
Overall: a highly unbalanced beer. The malt profile did not complement the coffee, it just all got together to make a very roasty/burnt taste.
