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).

2012 vinatge. Pours a dark brown, near black...nice and lively mocha head that settles into fine lacing and a ring around the teku glass. Pretty oily, with decent legs. Aromas of oak are immediately present. Dark chocolate, roasted nuttiness and a slight note of alcohol make themselves known. Taste is loaded with bitter dark chocolates, a mild roasted body coupled with notes of vanilla and oak. A nice bitter finish is accompanied by more oak impressions, along with bitter chocolate...almost pushing coffee notes across my palate. Very nice and smooth, minimal alcohol is noticeable. Great imperial stout...medium-heavy body...lively carbonation. Nice balance.

Gerbeer (2001) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours black with retentive tan head. Aromas of acidic black coffee, dark sweet fruit, heavily roasted malt, light green oak and a bit of perfume. Flavors are similar with emphasis on acidic vs oily and very sharp dry, dark, bitter chocolate. Bottled Sept 2014. This one may need to sit a bit.

Draft at the Syb Pig. Have had many times but guess I never rated it. Tulip pour was black and thick with a very dark brown two finger head. Some solid lacing throuout. The aroma is dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, vanilla, caramel, roasted malts, leather, and some earth. The taste is up front with the chocolate and roasted malts, then settles into the vanilla and caramel flavors on the back end. It all balances very well together. Almost the body of a milkshake...serious thickness and creamy. FInish is dark chocolate and slight bitterness. Damn good beer as always.

This is one hell of a beer. Black pour with a small yet airy brown head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, and alcohol. Body is robust. Mostly chocolate and dark caramel, a little bit of roasted malts, whiskey finish. Really nice.

Bottle from a trade with Douberd. Thanks! Pours black with a dark brown dense and fluffy head. Exceptional looking beer! The aroma is loaded with big milky chocolate notes, cocoa powder, grassy hops, big caramel malts, mature oak, toasted malts and sweet tobacco! Wow this smells good and the hops are really providing a nice edge on this. The taste has some sweet tobacco, big and bold hops, caramel malts, milk chocolate, cocoa , sweet mature oak, weak pepper and just overall very nice balanced. This is smooth and very easy to drink! Unique brew!
