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).

Bottled. Pitch black with a tan head. Smells like chocolate milk, smoke, oak and malt. Flavor is chocolate, oak, smoke and coffee. Slightly dry finish.

big 22 oz bottle (i think?) for $8.99, and well worth every penny. gorgeous brown head on a black beer that ever-so-slightly tints garnet on the side of the glass. toast, roast, coffee beans and vanilla beans own the aroma, but even with the 75 IBUs there isnít a noticeable hops aroma. very slightly alcoholic, but thereís so much thick malt and dark roasted body that the alcohol barely gets noticed. oak is hidden, but still there, especially in the finish. this is one nice stout. not TOO different from the regular Yeti, but both are excellent, excellent beers.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2006 Bottle, shared with a friend. This is a fine beer, indeed. Very dark with ruby tinges on the edges and fizzy head. Chocolate aroma and a creamy palate. Taste is chocolate, hops, malt, and detectable oak character. It seemed to get sweeter the more I drank. Definitely recommended for anyone who likes stouts.

jazz88 (2556) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Bottle. Black as the night with a creamy thick brown head. A strong chocolate liquor aroma, with wood, coffee, roasted nuts, and vanilla. A wonderful nose. The beer is thick, smooth and rich in texture. The flavor is dominated by coffee, vanilla, and chocolate. The intense sweetness and at times overpowering flavors knocked it down at the end.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2005
22 oz bottle - Pours thick black with a thick creamy brown head that lingers and laces well. I tried the non oak aged version last night and loved it so much that I had to try this one tonight. Aroma is of vanilla, coffee, brown sugar, molasses, also some plum, and burnt wood. Taste is still smoky just like the plain old yeti but this has much more of a vanilla flavor. The oak flavor also comes through in this making it seem a little more sweet and smooth. Behind it though there is still that roasted chocolate, coffee flavor that I loved in the regular Yeti. On the palate it actually seems a little more creamy if that is possible. This is divine decadence... Fantastic stout and it definitely belongs in the top 50.

CharmCityHops (12) - Maryland, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Opaque black hole-like liquid with a dark tan head. It quickly dissapated to a ultra sticky. No light streaming through and limited carbonation after the initial pour. Deep, thick aromas of alcohol, vanilla and brown sugar sitting in a thick Italian espresso Taste: Vanilla mixed with tasty roasted malts. Once it warms a bit, you have the oak flavors mingled with the bitter middle and finish. Lingers on the tongue for quite a bit. Middle to heavy mouthfeel, but creamy. Hops linger on the tongue

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Sweet aroma of vanilla, molasses, smoke, and fruits. Very rich and creamy mouthfeel. Flavors spread all over the tongue. Some nice flavors of brown sugar, vanilla, faint bit of chocolate, and warming alcohol. I cant detect much difference from the regular yeti, except for big vanilla. Oh well, its good, but was expecting more.

CamdenD (1094) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 31, 2005
Very smooth and velvety imperial stout. The oaking seems to mellow the hops that dominate the normal yeti, and I think itís a good thing. This is a true dessert beer with attitude. Beautiful.

shadey (1896) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Black pour with dark ton head. Nice lacing. Smooth mocha aroma. Some alcohol. Flavor is full bodied and rich. A little too much alcohol. Still very high quality.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Pretty sweet nose, coffee, chocolate, milky, faint notes of alcohol and some oak. Comepletely black beer, wonderful big and thick dark tan head on top of this black fluid. Flavor starts sweet, chocolatey, loads of coffee, touch of oak, ends in a bold hoppy bitterness with a nice burn of alcohol. A really nice beer!
