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).

Oily black body with a thin kahki head, that leaves behind some great lacing. Plums, roasted barley and vanilla highlight the aroma. The dry oaky feel compliments the stout flavors quite nicely. Pleasant notes of vanilla shine throughout this beer with espresso in the finish. Very nice beer.

Draft at the brewery: I have several bottles of this in my stash but I’ve never opened one and only sampled it at the brewery. Pours black with a brown head. Hoppy aroma with chcolate and roasted malt. Flavor is excellent: chocolate, roasted malt, oak, hops. Very full bodied. I love this beer.

Pours deep black with a brown/maroon looking head. Smells like alcohol and hops. Chocolaty flavor, pretty strong, but smooth none the less. A little too strong for my taste in stouts, it burns the back of my throat like acid-reflux. Leaves an invigorating "panty-like" lining on the glass. Hints of coffee. Gets better with every envigorating sip that touches your lips. Head is huge watch out because if flows out like a volcano. There is a yeti stain on my carpet as we speak. :(

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2005
Pours fully black with a thick brown head, thick intracate lacing on the glass. The aromas are chocolate, coffee, and some hops with plum and raisin in the retro nasal. The taste is rich roasted malts, plenty of hops, chocolate and some alcohol. This stout looked awesome in a Duvel tulip only enhacing the experience and it tasted as good as it looked. A great impy stout!

oh yeah. Pours out ridiculously dark with a rocking brown head. like the commercial description says intense chocolate and coffe flavor. Delicious malt flavor with a small hint of sweet alcohol. I want to stress how good the chocolate flavor is. It is pretty rockin. A great stout! get one if you see it.

Frank (2930) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2005
Really top notch stuff. Pours black w/ a nice lasting head. Seems less bitter than ordinary Yeti possibly due to age. Very smooth and rich--a bunch of chocolate, coffee and a touch of vanilla. Carbonation is just about perfect, thick and velvety. I don’t really get much oak but whatever. Good beer is good beer.

Sregnar35 (974) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Amazing, amazing, amazing. Thick like motor oil, creamy brown head. Smell is hops and oak. Flavor lasts and lasts, chocolate, oak, and a hoppy burn on the back of your tongue. This is a fantastic beer.

larsam (127) - Southampton, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2005
Rated @ Stockholm beer festival. Black with light brown head. Huge beer! Vanilla is the first thing to reach your nose. The flavour has a very pleasant blend of vanilla, chocolate and coffey. The immense maltiness is balanced by the noticable (!) 75 IBU. Dangerously good...

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Impenetrably dark. Huge roast and espresso aromas. Nicely done with a kiss of vanilla on the finish. Compared to the regular Yeti: creamier and more refined, deserves a cigar and a fire place.

What a beautiful beer! I wouldn’t love it so much, but I got to share a bottle with some of the guys at the brewery and it was FREE!!! Now I’m at home and objectively tasting it. And its sooo good. The oak melds so well with everything else. What a nice beer....I can’t give a good description, but if you don’t like this-you’re, well, you’re just plain crazy. That’s all I can say. Oak aged Imperial Stouts...the next big thing I think. Oh wait, they already are!!
