What the brewers say

“An infusion of Denver’s own Pablo’s espresso adds a layer of complexity, combining with the vanilla oak character, roasty maltiness, and bold hops profile. It’s official: You can now have Yeti with breakfast.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Dank resinous citrus/piney hops are a refreshing change. Light roast and chocolate malt duke it out for second place. Dark chocolate. Not a lot of coffee or roasted barley. Spicy alcohol. Fruity esters (peach and cherry).”

Flavor: “Sweet chocolate and roasty malt slowly fade into a balanced bitterness from hops (distinct earthy/pine needle freshness) and malt. Coffee complements the roasted malt and hops bitterness, acts as a background for assertive hops flavor. Nice alcoholic warmth.”

Overall: “The hops flavor and aroma set this beer apart from other coffee stouts. The malt character is great with a balance of chocolate and roast. The coffee is subtle. Great beer overall, but more coffee please! Surprisingly quaff-able. A creative take that still remembers that it’s a stout.”
