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).

Pours a black like oil, with the same type of viscosity, khaki colored head, light and foamy. Oak, chocolate, vanilla, and plenty of roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with roast and oak.

Gerbeer (1987) - 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!

Kolsvart med stort brunt skum. Doftar kaffe, choklad, vanilj och lite av fatlagringen. Kaffe, vanilj, choklad och ganska besk men lite tunn kropp.

Vestergaard (452) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2014
65 cl bottle from 2012. Pours pitch black with a big, extremely long lasting, brown, fluffy beautiful head. Aroma has earthy hops, that’s a little like gasoline or petroleum. Lots of light, roasted malts, mature but dry oak, slight vanilla, milk chocolate, tobacco coffee, toasted malts. Taste has looots of tobacco, cigar. not smoked, but tobacco. Milky chocolate, but not very sweet. Old hops, but not in the earthy way. Ends off really dry, again with this tobacco. Some black pepper and some spice. Seems like a beer for old people, but man i like it too!! Really interesting. Nothing like all other big stouts. And big taste for 9,5% ABV. Such complex beer. Very smooth and balanced, but still extraordinary!
