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).

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 nor’easter when snow is piling outside like crazy and thus, you have no where to go tomorrow.

highlandlad (1463) - 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)

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 9, 2006
Now this is some damn fine beer. Everything about this is big. Aroma of coffee, molasses, toffee, figs, oak and some vanilla. Flavors were pretty much the same although I didn’t get much of the oak that was supposed to be there from the barrels. It didn’t matter because everything was done to a high quality that made me want more and more. Very tasty.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2009 Gosh darn nice beer. Pours jet black and a thin brown head doesn’t appear until you’re done. I smell coffee, chocolate, and burning wood. Has a nice fireplace kind of aroma. Bit thinner than I was expecting. Silky smooth going down, very hoppy and gets more aromatic as you drink it. I’d definitely buy this again. Probably a top 10 beer for me.

Right off I notices it’s obvious thickness...coats the side of the glass with a viscous layer. Small brown head on a black as night pour...substantial, NO light gets through it. Aroma is a nice caramel. The taste has hints of chocolate and great big coffee aftertaste. Palate is incredibly thick....it has the consistency of glue on your tongue.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Beautiful black body with a minimal brown head. Almost a perfect aroma for a stout, caramel, chocolate, malts and dark fruits round it out. Excellent taste with accents of vanilla, mollasses and an oaked fruit quality. A creamy ending with maybe some burbon accents.

ebarnes (261) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2006
22 oz bottle. Pours black with a modest tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, malt, and a little whisky. Flavor is VERY smooth. The oak flavor really set this apart from the other Yeti.

unibaren (157) - 8000 Århus C, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2006
Roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla and other delicious notes. Pitch black colour, dark brown lasting head and beautiful lacing. Not dominated by the usual Great Divide hop-bombardment, and much more balanced then its Yeti-siebling - but not very oaky. Smooth long lasting artertaste.

Black colour with a big creamy brown head. Roasted aroma with hints of wood and chocolate. Taste roasted malty with hints of chocolate, coffe and vanilla notes. Long roasted aftertaste with some bitterness.
