COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crack open Yeti Imperial Stoutís 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 Yetiís already intense chocolate, roasted coffee malt flavor and hugely assertive hop profile. Who says you canít tame a Yeti? 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

The expected dark, dark color and dark tan head. Pretty fine lacing. Warm biscuity maltiness with some vanilla and lightly roasted coffee (and milk chocolate) in the aroma. Initial sip is full and creamy and extremely roasty/smoky, though it stops short of overwhelming. Spicy evergreen bitterness coats the roof of your mouth. Supple vanilla figures prominently here. Nice stuff, and deserving of its status.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Pitch black with a large, brown, lacy head. Smells of chocolate and dried fruits. Deep, dark chocolatey flavor with hints of roasted coffee, wood, and alcohol. Smooth, slick palate. More complex and subtle than its cousin the plain Yeti. Excellent stout.

Bov (10204) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 15, 2005
bottled, thanks to fiulijn for bringing me this one from Denmark - pitch-black coloured; the initial brown tainted foam disappears quite quickl< but leaves some lace; huge roasted aroma of black chocolate, chestnut and dried prunes with some notes of alcohol and wood too; oily, sticky and full-bodied; a powerful bitterness announced the very long, dry and malty finish where more chocolatey, hoppy and fruity notes are met - what a fantastic beer !

What a great stout this is! RICH roasted malts with their burnt caramel/toffee base...Mixed with a prominent oak wood/vanilla highlight...toped by a serious alcohol burn. Nicely done!

(at Yeha05) Pitch black, beige head. Surprice to me, A quit fruity and light aroama. grapes, milkchocolate and burnt dark sugar. Creamy mouthfeel and tastes of port, figs abd loads of coffee. Not that warm i finish, could have been nice though.

Black Coloring and Tan Ring. Like Taking a Simple Malty Heavy Mouthfeel Stout and Adding Some Bitterness and Oak Flavors to It. Really Enjoyable But Pretty Straightforward. Alcohol Becomes Noticeable.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Thick brown color with hints of red around the edges. Small brown head that laces beautifully. Aroma of vanilla, oak, coffee and chocolate. Flavor was strong and complex with loads of roastiness and coffee at the start following with chocolate, vanilla and rounded out by the oak. Drier in the finish than I would have expected. Heavy mouthfeel (as expected) For a beer of this magnitude it is easilly quaffable.

Indy (87) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Iím continually impressed by Great Divide. Bottle-- Pours very dark brown and slightly syrupy...faint ruby glow around the edges. Head was soapy and had the color of milk-chocolate, though it seamed to get lighter as it dissipated. Complex aroma: oak, vanilla, chocolate, coffee with a subtle spiciness. Sweet and malty flavor, nice bitterness to balance. Starts out creamy and finishes crisp and bitter. Maybe itís because itís winter in Minnesota, but man, these Imperial Stouts and Porters really hit the spot!!
