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).

jonas (6479) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2005
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.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2005
The expected dark, dark color and dark tan head. Pretty fine lacing. Warm biscuity maltiness with some vanilla and lightly roasted coffee (and milk chocolate) in the aroma. Initial sip is full and creamy and extremely roasty/smoky, though it stops short of overwhelming. Spicy evergreen bitterness coats the roof of your mouth. Supple vanilla figures prominently here. Nice stuff, and deserving of its status.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Pitch black with a large, brown, lacy head. Smells of chocolate and dried fruits. Deep, dark chocolatey flavor with hints of roasted coffee, wood, and alcohol. Smooth, slick palate. More complex and subtle than its cousin the plain Yeti. Excellent stout.

Thick dark brown appearance, excellent head formation. Strong licorice aroma with dark fruits. Not overly strong but thickish palate. Dark chosolate, hazelnut, prunes and raisins witha heavy citrus in the finsih.

Bov (11456) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 15, 2005
bottled, thanks to fiulijn for bringing me this one from Denmark - pitch-black coloured; the initial brown tainted foam disappears quite quickl< but leaves some lace; huge roasted aroma of black chocolate, chestnut and dried prunes with some notes of alcohol and wood too; oily, sticky and full-bodied; a powerful bitterness announced the very long, dry and malty finish where more chocolatey, hoppy and fruity notes are met - what a fantastic beer !

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2005
What a great stout this is! RICH roasted malts with their burnt caramel/toffee base...Mixed with a prominent oak wood/vanilla highlight...toped by a serious alcohol burn. Nicely done!

(at Yeha05) Pitch black, beige head. Surprice to me, A quit fruity and light aroama. grapes, milkchocolate and burnt dark sugar. Creamy mouthfeel and tastes of port, figs abd loads of coffee. Not that warm i finish, could have been nice though.

Black Coloring and Tan Ring. Like Taking a Simple Malty Heavy Mouthfeel Stout and Adding Some Bitterness and Oak Flavors to It. Really Enjoyable But Pretty Straightforward. Alcohol Becomes Noticeable.
