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).

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.

"Not sure i can tell the difference between this and the stright yeti. Not much oak flavor or aroma. Apearence was awsome, dark pour with a dark brown head. which laced great. Good solid beer."

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
Expensive but well worth it. Black with a smaller khaki head. Aroma was rubust with licorice, dark chocolate, toasted nuts and a kicking oak. Flavour lives up to the nose, rich, silky with a nice creamy texture dried out nicely with the oak flavouring. A great one for sure.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2006
Pours a jet black thick color with a small amount of tan head. Aroma is sweet, molases, bitter dark chocolate, and oak. Flavor is chocolatey, bitter dry roasted nuts, oaky-earthy flavors, and alcohol warmth. Overall, very good warming imp stout. Perfect for a night during a noríeaster when snow is piling outside like crazy and thus, you have no where to go tomorrow.

highlandlad (1464) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2006
A brutal monster of an imperial stout. Not a beer to be approached lightly. Black with a firm, lacing head. Reeks of oak, burnt toast, licorice and Christmasy dried fruits. Perfect creamy mouthfeel. Big enough in the frame to carry these huge flavours. Quite ascerbic on the tongue. Piney hops, wood, toffee - a classic American mix. Stunningly good. (Bottle, Duff homecoming gathering)
