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).

Got a little too happy with this pour. Very large head of dark brown bubbles. Very small and compact with great density. Settles very slowly and leaves a thick sheet of doily lace around the top. Very light carbonation. Rich, roasty aroma with loads of sweet malts, caramel, vanilla, salt and terreaki sauce. Color is black as tar. Creamy smooth in the mouth. Slight woodness and tartness from the oak. Other than that just plain delicious. Sweet and malty without the harsh burnt coffee taste. Flavor is surprisingly short lived and I expected it to have a little more body than this. Creamy and smooth and hides its alcohol very well. A great imperial stout that will please those who are not fans of imperial stouts. Incredibly drinkable for such a huge brew.

Please see my rating for the YETI Imperial Stout. This one didn’t taste much different to me. However, judging from the other ratings I probably need to taste them side by side (what a sacrifice that will be hehe).

Tap. Holy jeez this is an enormous freaking beer. Opaque, scary tan head. Big in all ways - alcohol, malts, hops, everything. This is just freaking coffeed to hell...malty, roasty, chocolately. Excellently made, but for tough and serious drinkers only.

Darkover (1534) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Black with milky brown head. Aroma of roast and dark chocolate. Smooth creamy body. Flavors of chocolate, roast, smoke, hops and wood. Finish is woody, hops and smoke. Really drinkable for the style.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2008 Oil black, with a nice film of coffee and cream head. Strong roasted coffee aroma, highly subdued by vanilla bean and candy sugar. Flavor surprisingly sweet and highly subtle, with a good dose of coffe, but unlike many other Impy stouts, more closely balanced with rich creamy belgian chocolate. The oak really makes this beer supremely better than the too hoppy straight version. Sweet creamy flavor over the roasted coffee and chocolate notes, with a tinge of fruity tahitian vanilla bean and some mexican cinnamon and coffee. Silky, oily and nicely supple and gentle for a beer usually so punishing. Almost a top Impy, but lacks a little body. Otherwise, impecable balance, flavor. Something I would savor regularly.

Beautifully dark, great head, roasty chocolate and coffee aroma and maybe some oak? Woody, chocolatey, and some hoppy flavours. Though the hops definatly doesn’t make an explosive entrance. I really enjoyed this, and will most certainly get more now that it seems to be more regularly available here.

22 oz bottle sent to my by Santa! Thanks Santa! Dark dark stuff with brown head. Aromas of chocolate, and just a bit of coffee. Flavors were more chocolate with some oakiness in there. Coffee and roatiness too. Very hoppy finish made this a pretty darn good beer. My Santa rocked!

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2005
22oz - purchased in Boulder May 2004 - Aroma is milk chocolate, roasted coffee, vanilla, oak, and hops. Pours black with a small brown head and great lacing. Flavor is a lot roastier than the aroma. Coffee and chocolate slowly fade to leave a coating of vanilla on the tounge. Palate is sticky and bitter. A nice warming brew on a cold winters night.

Bottle. A beautiful black pour with a tan haed. A nice sweet taste of malt and coffee. A very nice oak flavored finish.

Bottle, tasted in parallel with the regular version, both provided by the generous and hospitable Mads Berg, tak Mads!
Completely black, brown head. More subtle wooden aroma, wooden cognacy flavors as well. Hops come over less citrussy. More diacetyl. Slightly smoother, probably due to longer lagering times.
