An espresso beer just have to be sampled at breakfast. So that is what we just did. Great Divide’s Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout is a good breakfast beer. The 9.5% ABV gives the beer a good body to balance the rich coffee flavor. There is a slight vanilla sweetness in the background adding another dimensions to the beer. The barrel flavor is only obvious in the smell and it blends with the other flavors and make it completer. Great Divid suggest Eggs Benedict, Breakfast Burrito, Hash browns and Cheesecake with the beer. I’m not sure about the Burrito but Eggs Benedict will work if there as a lot of smoked ham. This beer goes well with smoked ham or sausage. I would probably prefer it with a New York Cheese Cake for eftermiddags fika” (afternoon coffee break).
