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).

Pitch black. Thick, light brown head. Hops hit me in the nose from two feet away. Along with the hops are roasty malt, vanilla, coffee beans, oak, licorice, dark chocolate, and just a mention of alcohol. Same flavors. Order of appearance: oaky vanilla, roasty malt, coffee, chocolate, licorice, hops, subtle alcohol. Aftertaste mirrors the flavor with roastiness and alcohol accentuated. Full, smooth, viscous body. Excellent imperial stout.

Thanks so much arnoud for bringing this to the airport while pivos stopover in Newark - you rock man! Pitch black color with a light brown rocky huge head - last forever. Roasted malt, cacoa nibs and wood nose. Also some charcoal. Nutmeg in the beginning, followed by Tabacco, roasted malt and a long lasting and very intense espresso crema taste. Smoothes down as it warms up. Nice!

(draft) Iíve never been a big fan of oak aged brews, but the oak undertones of this are subtle enough that theyíre hardly noticeable. Just enough chocolate and coffee flavor to almost mask the alcohol burn, but not quite. Pretty good.

St Albans (05): Deep black with a brown head. Sweet chocolate aroma, with oaky vanilla notes too. Very smooth soft mouthfeel. Lovely sweet chocolate flavour, with some woody notes and vanilla pods. Molasses and liquorice flavours too. Good stuff, cheers duff!

Black appearance. No head. Roasted and slightly smoked. Finsih is mederately hoppy and soft. Great imperial stout. Slighty sweeter than the ordinary Yeti. However I donít think itís better than the original.

Intimidatingly dark with tan head - stares back at you. About as agressively flavored IS as possible while maintaining balance and a surprisong creamy mouth feel. All of the deep darkness you could want. The oak presence is there but I donít think it adds anything, it may even distract. I wonít know until I try the non-oaked version. Thanks to holdwine for this one.

Motor oil pour. Big and rich. Oak? maybe, if it helps, great, but it doesnít assert itself. Toffee, molasses, chocolate are all present in abundance. Piney hops swoop in to declare their presence. Wonderful.

Bottle. Wow. And may I add: Yummy. Brilliant stout. And with the danger of repeating myself: Yummy and wow.

Central Mkt. $7.49 22oz. Lots of dark chocolate and coffee bittered to perfection. Quick, fresh palate for such a dense brew. I like that itís a bit thin. Alcohol is well hidden. A full meal deal.
