We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. A Yeti for summer? Hell yes.

650 mL bottle. 2011 vintage. Hops are gone, and carbonation seems down, but this is still a damn fine beer. Cocoa and oak dominate, but each of these offer a complex variety of flavours. Body is great.

Motor oil, beige, brown on the edges head. Very aromatic, powerful, Kahlua, cocoa, alcohol. A rolling wave of thick flavor on the tongue, dark roasted malts, rye, plums. Slightly effervescent in the finish....lingering breathy chocolate...so much milk chocolate. The beer is big....delightfully!

P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, robust finish. O- A beast but a delightful one at that. Tons of chocolate and everything blending so beautifully. It was hard to find a lot wrong with this one. One of my favorite variants of Yeti for sure.

The Chocolate Oak Aged variant of Yeti is delightfully random-ass. While there are some Imperial Stouts that are playing with the spicy pepper/cocoa combination, I can’t think of many brewers that are throwing oak aging into that equation. This Yeti pours like chocolate syrup with dark brown foam. The aroma gives you a sense of all the craziness going on in here. There’s the usual Yeti note of charred malt, then there’s oak, pepper, and cocoa. Flavor features dark chocolate, spicy fresh cocoa, coffee, oak, hops (though the distinctive bite is somewhat subdued), and a little cayenne. Despite being a big, boozy beer with lots of complexity, Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti is ridiculously easy to drink. I don’t know when I’ll have my next opportunity to try a new Yeti Stout, but I can’t wait for the chance.

Price: $5.75 Purchased: July 21, 2015 Consumed: July 21, 2015 Misc.: N/A Poured a pitch black color with 1-to-2 fingers of frothy, tan head when I got it.

(Sight - 4.25) Smelled toffee, caramel, roasted nuts, hazelnut, espresso, vanilla, chocolate syrup, dark cocoa, some bitter black coffee malts and chocolate milk. (Smell - 3.88) Got oak right away in the taste. Also toffee, dark chocolate, bitter coffee beans, hazelnut, roasty nuts, espresso, dark cocoa nibs, vanilla and boozy chocolate syrup. (Taste - 3.75) Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.88) This was a decent beer, but a bit disappointing overall. I probably wouldn’t order it again on purpose. (Overall - 3.75) 3.81 86 B+

Bottle. Pitch black with a moderately lasting dark brown head. Good lacing. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, bitter roasted malts. Taste is of chocolate, vanilla, more bitter roasted notes, peppery kick is noticeable in the finish followed by a hint of the alcohol. Sticky oily texture, medium carbonation. Lovely.
