Crack open Yeti Imperial Stout’s sophisticated sibling -- Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout. Although these beers come from the same clan, they have entirely different personalities. Aging on a blend of French and toasted oak chips infuses a subtle oak and vanilla character into Yeti’s already intense chocolate, roasted coffee malt flavor and hugely assertive hop profile. Who says you can’t tame a Yeti? 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

Bottle October 13th 2013. Pours a thick motor oil black. Head of milk chocolate and coffee. Nicely balanced. No overwhelming notes. Quite balanced possibly due to aging. Lots of dark chocolate malts mixed with subdued vanilla and lots of espresso on the back end.

neongolden (846) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2015
(650ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours pitch black with a moderate, dense and long lasting mocha head and lace. Aroma strong on roasted malts, coffee, hot cocoa, earth, prune, light vanilla, burnt sugar, toasted wood. Fairly sweet with some hop bitterness and anise buried behind. Palate is sweet and rounded with milk chocolate, dark malt, molasses, vanilla, light woodiness and toast. Lightly toasted woody notes and vanilla more prominent towards the finish, which is drier and bitter with hop, roast, and some coffee grounds. Aftertaste very dry, bitter and woody. No alcohol. Medium-full creamy body with very soft carb, feels lovely in the mouth. This is not a huge bold stout in comparison to some, but the flavours are still rich and the balance is excellent. Very drinkable, not a wrong move, great stuff.

mikeyo1 (459) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle @ home. 2010 vintage. Black with a brown medium sized head. Sweet and roasted aroma with cocoa, delicate dark chocolate, figs, raisins, oak, vanilla, soy sauce and some background ink, but not yet too disturbing. Roasted taste, medium bodied(!) with dark fruits, cocoa, oak, dark cherries, some vanilla, Lovely, mouth embracing late oak finish then a dry roast bitter finish with some astringent notes. Lingering soy, leather and cardboard. While still very nice, it has peaked.

I bought this bottle a while back, in South Carolina, when I got my chance. I’d been seeing lots of of Yeti, but didn’t know when I’d get my opportunity...there it was! I was very excited to find this variant and couldn’t wait to get it home. So many IPAs to be had before I could get to this, and I’m just finding it tonight, three months later. If you didn’t know it before; tonight is a good night for something dark. -- The bottle opened, the scent of baking chocolate and woody, earthy oak spill out of the neck, tantalizing my senses with a deep musky aroma. A bit of ash and warm vanilla; accents to a spicy hops bite. -- I pour the snifter half full and the scent floods my nostrils, the lush, dark aroma scintillating and sexy. Tenfold the experience, just in a simple pour. The dark, nut-brown liquid is capped with a soft, delicate foam, roasted cashew in color and consistent across the surface. -- The glass tipped to my lips, the thick brew finds every warm rift, slipping under my tongue and making a slow passage to every available part of my mouth, already moist with anticipation. A viscous and decadent feel, its an explosion of flavor, of aroma; the palate a soft, warm blanket of cream coating every exposed space and leaving no room for the flood created by the aromatic experience. As I swallow, the oak and alcohol leave themselves behind, a reminder of the taste, and a tantalizing lure to pull yet another quaff. -- This is a beautiful beer; lovely in aroma, visual, taste, flavor; the overall experience. I can’t believe that as close as I am to Denver, I had to find this in South Carolina. I’ll have to find a way back to another bottle of the Yeti. This was amazing.
