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).

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!

A pretty awesome imperial stout. Tons of sweet coffee and chocolate. Smokey flavors too. Not really a big difference from the regular Yetti. some sips you can taste a woody flavor but nothing that sets it apart from the other one.

Take all the finer aspects of the GD Imp, dress it up, pimp it out, shave the corners, fluff it up, lay it down, roll it over and call it home. This has character and more with a round mouthfeel like velvet. Enjoyable times ten turned up to feedback level.

This is as good as imperials get. Huge, malty, complex with a dry finish. This Imperial is huge in body, taste and power. A must buy, I tried these unfortunately in bottles at the Great Divide brewery in Denver. One kick ass brew.

22-oz. bottle. Pours black with a tall foamy tan head and wonderful creamy lacing that lazily droops in the glass as if its weight is making it fall. Vanilla and coconut aroma initially then oak and spicy alcohol with sweet fruit hops on the nose. Oak and toffee flavors begin and then lead you to medium roasted caramel malt with light coffee and sweet fruit with hints of vanilla and coconut. Dark and smooth body, very nice mouthfeel.

Bottle - I really sat and took in the aroma on this one and Iím glad that I did. A very interesting aroma it has. Big chocolate up front, maybe a touch of smoke. Then comes a hint of vanilla and the oak. Very nice! Dark as night with a small, but creamy and tightly bubbled beige head. Flavor-wise, the coffee comes across first. I then notice the creamy mouthfeel. Nice! Some chocolate comes out next. The second pour from my bomber found a nearly 1-inch deep head that looked like you could scoop it with a spoon. I donít get a bunch of the oak anywhere but in the nose, but this is one of the best beers Iíve had for a while and - I believe worthy of #300.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2005 Bottle, at the brewery? Great Divide is a small production brewery. they gave an excellent tour, but are only equipped with a few of their beers on draft. they were happy to open up bottles of anything that we wanted to try. The Oak Aged Yeti is very big as Russian Imperial Stouts are and should be, but... it has a smoothness that I havenít tastes in other RISs. It has excellent flavor. The oak gives an already great beer a nice twist.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2005
22 oz bottle: Pours thick, black, & oily w/ a short lived light brown sugar head. Chocolatey w/ some herbal hop @ first. Lightly roasty w/ moderate oaky notes & vanilla w/ hints of black currant; Medium caramel aroma and a bit of perfumey alcohol. The roast aroma gets stronger as it warms, but still dominated by chocolate. Nutty as well as it warms. The flavor is a bit burnt up front w/ bitter dark grains. Vanilla shows up mid palate, but disappears into the finish. Balanced just to malty w/ some semi sweet dark chocolate into the finish w/ a bit of alcohol. Some herbal hops in the semi sweet finish with some lingering bitterness in the aftertaste which is also a bit woody oak and very mellow. Medium carbonation, smooth, velvety texture, but a bit hot with a very full body. Very big and very rich flavor. This is not something I could drink more than one of in a night.

(Bottle) Sampled at the RateBeer post-party at the Belgium Comes To Cooperstown 2005 in Cooperstown, NY. Oaky, roasted malt and sweet chocolate. Frothy yellowish-brown with an opaque body. The flavour is too bitter.
