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.

Bomber poured into a Surly Stein

Appearance: Black as night, with a big foamy chocolatey head. Very slow to fade into a nice dark lacing.

Aroma: Chocolate, hint of coffee. Tiny bit of... wood? From the oak. Also, a bit of burnt toffee. Overall, a very smokey, chocolatey smell.

Taste: Sweet, chocolate, with a strong coffee finish.

Mouthfeel: A little thinner than I expected, but by no means bad.

Overall: While, I accept that it's an espresso version of Yeti, I think the coffee finish is a little overwhelming. Without a little patience between drinks, it really just tastes of espresso. With some patience, and a little time, the other flavors come out.
