COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

Pours opaque black with a nice brown head. Aroma is roast coffee, sweet melting sugar, vanilla, prunes and a little hint of red wine. Taste is milk chocolate, cocoa powder, a hint of sweet molasses, some minute coffee notes, a veritable dose of vanilla and a slight bitterness which is cocoa like on the finish. Full bodied and softly caresses the mouth just like your favourite snuggle blanket caresses your Sunday hangover and makes you feel human again.

22 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. Bottled 09/18/2012. The pour is a viscous oily black with a medium brown head and some great lace. The aroma is great. Lots of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, and oak. Licorice comes through on the back end pretty strong and brings a good bitterness to the table. The flavor is very roasty. The malts are smashing you right in the face. The chocolate is much more reserved. The oak isn't there. The bitter licorice comes through on the back end for a little change of pace. The mouth feel is thinner than I want it to be. The carbonation is spot on, but it's just a touch thin. The aftertaste is roasty licorice and a little bitter. I love it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Old rating....delicious like most yetis. This one has very soft oak and vanilla presence over the giant chocobooze monster. Big mouthfeel, appropriate for this beast.

Väldigt komplex och massiv. Chokladsmak med viss besk eftersmak. Fin med en bit mörk choklad, minst 70%.

Jur (452) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle @ home. Thick, jet black pour, cinnamon head. Dark choc nose. Huge flavour; caffé, liquorice, dark chocolate, dry bitter woody finish. Aged well. Lots of wood makes it a bit one dimensional later on, overpowers a bit perhaps. Still glorious.

JBPortland (1183) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 27, 2015
22oz bottle pours oily black brown with small dark head. Nose is big brownie batter, chocolate, roast, subtle vanilla, dark fruit and char. Taste is similar with tons of fudgey brownie, chocolate, roast, with light vanilla, syrupy in a good way. Finishes moderately sweet with big roasty brownie, chocolate sauce, cake, vanilla. Awesome.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. 2012 vintage. Aroma is roasted malt, licorice, milk chocolate. Appearance is black, light brown head. Taste is robust, lots of roasted malt, coffee bitterness, not much on the oak, very robust. Mouthfeel is thin, great carbonation and it hangs around. Overall, it?s pretty impressive.
