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).

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2005
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev at Bar Volo. Pours black with a large creamy light brown head. Aroma consists of a strong milk chocolate smell, roasted malts and moderately hoppy. Smells fantastic. The flavour was quite complex: vanilla, chocolate, roasted coffee and whiskey for starters. Thereís not much carbonation, itís flat but it works well. The alcohol is quite present but it is 9.5 after all. This is very unique and on itís own level. One of the best Imperial Stouts there is.

Tmoney99 (10399) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Bomber bottle. Poured black with medium light brown head that lasted. Complex aroma of coffee and chocolate. Full body with creamy texture. Big flavor of coffee, roasted malt and sweet tones and a small alcohol bite at the finish. Very great stout.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Bottle, bomber: Dark black, opaque, with a big lasting tan head. Big aromas of coffee and chocolate, hints of vanilla, alcohol are also present. This beer is huge, lots of roasted malts, coffee malt, vanilla and dark fruit sweetness, finishes with hop bitterness and alcohol kick.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Bomber from Brad. Pours very dark with a thick tan head. Nose is chocolate, hints of coffee and malt. Flavor is malty with some chocolate, vanilla, coffee and malt notes. This had been talked to up to be much better then regular yeti, but I really didnt see that much difference.

GregClow (2847) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2005
Bottle at Volo. Pours like motor oil, with a big mocha head that leaves tons of lace. Amazing aroma of bitter chocolate, sweet cigar smoke, roasted malt & whiskey. Body is decadently smooth. Rich and complex flavour, with notes of vanilla, wood, espresso, tobacco, and a strongly hopped finish to wrap it all up. Simply exquisite. Not only one of the best stouts Iíve ever had, but one of the best BEERS Iíve ever had, period.

Chocolate syrup pour, with a rich and creamy tan head. Powerful aroma of peppery fruits, chewy chocolate, and dark roasted malts. Very complex and flavorful. Fine chocolate, espresso, and dark fruits for flavors. Finishes spicy and long. A nice find, thanks for sharing cigarsnbeer!

desurfer (1209) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Iíll say right off the bat Iím not very much into most oaked beers. This bottle has been sitting in my cellar since Easter. It pours a dark, opaque brown with a chocolate colored, rich, creamy head. Aroma is malty and sweet, lots of oak and vanilla, a touch of bourbon in there too. Flavor is quite assertive on the hops, which give way to a sweet roasted coffee character. The oak aging adds some nice background complexity, but doesnít dominate the flavor like several others Iíve tried and disliked. Alcohol is very evident in the finish, but not more so than any other beer this strong. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2005 Very dark, not as thick as i thought, big roasted chocolate vibe to the aroma, same in the body with more roasted coffeeís, lots of roasting going on here. damn good. i was drunk, i had it again and it wasnt that good, very one dimensional on the chocoalte and watery.

Black ink. Coffee and alcohol dominate the nose. Minimal oak presence. Alcohol is masked well. Not mind-blowing, but above average.
