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).

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.

Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2006

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Black beer with a dark head. Aroma is sweet and inviting, vanilla-coffee-malt-and slight bourbon scent. I have to rate again after my next bottle, as I should not have been drinking this in the state I was in. However, what I wrote down was the incredible mix of white chocolate & bourbon that hides the alcohol well and remains smooth and luscious throughout.

Dark head-dress. The oaken forest cries molasses sap. The coffe pours out of the wodden mug and warms the milk.

RazingDreamz (123) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Black body, dark chocolate milk-colored head, foamy and lasting. Dark chocolate, roasted nuts, caramel aroma. Oak taste discernable over dark chocolate bitterness. Very thick, very full. Toffee aftertaste. Holy crap, I like this beer.

Thanks to BierBauch for this one. 22 oz bomber Pours a motor oil black with a medium tan head. Aroma is oak, chocolate, french vanilla, and kind of hoppy. Taste is wonderfully creamy, sweet, coffee, chocolate, more vanilla. Palate is heavy, sweet and abrupt, yet pleasing nonetheless. Very nice Imperial Stout. Glad I have the 22 oz bottle so I can enjoy another glass full.

Pitch black with a creamy tan head. This is indeed a "tamed" version of Great Divide’s Yeti with the same rich body and complex flavor as in the original rounded into a less overwhelming package. I found the oak flavor to be quite restrained.
