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 Gold. Wow. I was really expecting to be disappointed..glad it was the exact opposite. Just looking at it makes salivate. Lacing is thick, clinging to the glass. Well worth the $7.99

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 Solid black - looked almost tarlike when poured from the bottle. Thin brown head. Fantastic almost dessertlike aroma of chocolate, espresso, vanilla (?) with a good kick of hops - I could probably spend days smelling this. Everything from the aroma is doubled in the flavour except the hops, of which there is much more. Fantastic lingering aftertaste that lures you into another gulp. Iíve only had three sips now and Iím already in love - when the glass is empty Iíll probably marry this one. Magnificient.

Jet black, tan head, lacing, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, very nice... taste is chocolate up front, roasted malts, vanilla, and a touch of hops in the finish. Incredibly smooth and silky mouthfeel. Tried this at the same time as regular Yeti and there was a noticeable difference.

I have had this one 3 seperate times and had 3 different experiences with it. This last experience is the only one I have notes on and the worst experience with it. Poured black with a dark brown head. Aroma was bitter chocolate, coffee, some wood notes, and grassy hops. Silky smooth across the tongue. Flavor was bitter chocolate, coffee, some caramel, and finished with hops. This one tasted a lot closer to the regular Yeti. I would rate this specific sample a 3.6, but the rating I am entering is going to be my average experience with the beer as a whole. At its best I would give it a 4.5.

Pours oily black with slight tan head. Nose is ver nice. chocolate yet vinous in character with roasted malt sweetness. Extremely smooth mouthfeel with velvety chocolate and licorice notes. Alcohol blends well. Bittersweet finish. Great beer.

Bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank> piscator34, thanks Kris. Deep black in colour, large lingering tan coloured head, lots of lace. The aroma was quite malty (dark chocolate), roasty, licorice, vanilla and oak. The flavour was quite sweet upfront, very roasty, rich chocolate cake, vanilla. Very bitter mouthfeel, large body, medium carbonation. Finishes roasty, lingering, burnt and dry. Very nice.

Poured this beauty in a pint glass...I know, I know it should have been in a snifter. It truly poured like motor oil as black as night with a large dark tan head that laced the glass like linen. The wonderful aroma of oak and chocolate beg you to drink this. The first sip grabbed my tongue and slowly made itís way down my throat leaving a warm sweet bitterness quickly giving way to a sweet vanilla aftertaste that will make you want to take another sip. This is one of the best imperial stouts I have had and if you like imperials and donít try this one, you are really missing out.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2006 Poured jet black into snifter with tan precipitating head. A few larger bubbles remain, but otherwise head sticks to edge of glass. Not a hint of glow comes through when held to a light. Smells like chocolate...tastes like chocolate with a vanilla alcohol aftertaste. Not sweet like many imperials -- in fact, nice and roasted and bitter. Palate is actually a little thick with soft carbonation. Really quite enjoyable. Will be worth cellaring a few bottles.

22oz. Not having had the original Yeti formula, I feel as if I am missing some context for this, but I cannot say that it matters much, for this beer succeeds on its own. The salient feature of this beer seems to be the way the oak í s vanilla marries so nicely with the raw, near-menthol qualities of the hops. The malt seems as if it there more as a matter of logic (for nothing less than an imperial stout could bear the weight of all this oak and hops) than to provide a whole lot of flavor on its own, other than a good deal of bourbon--or is that just the oak again? Of course, my sinuses are a little wierd tonight. Very good stuff--there is a bit of a rush packed into this.
