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).

notalush (4638) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Inky black, thick pour with a huge, dark tan head, bubbly, sticky lace - complex aroma of vanilla bourbon, coffee, and, of course, oak - the oak character to the beer is in not way subtle, itís in your face right from the beginning, which isnít necessarily a bad thing - quite assertively hoppy for the style, but this character works well with the wood and keeps the chocolatey sweetness in check - wood and lots of hops stay on in a very long, almost dry finish - quite unique.

Dalle (1145) - SkÝrping, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2005
Bottle. Pitch black with a lovely brown head - beautiful beer. Roasted, tar, oil, salty liqourice, wood bite, finish is LONG and quite bitter. Smooth, full bodied but after 6 fl.oz. it seemed thinner (less carbonation). Itís complex and full flavored, itís in your face and itís not really about balance. Canít say I loved this beer though I would like to try it again. My wife said that it tastes like the bile you get after having vomited seven times!?! She didnít like it :-) Thanks to Jeppe and Jens for getting me this bottle.

FoolishMortal (987) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Pours opaque black with a generous rocky dark tan head. Earthy roast malt aromatics with vanilla and fruity hop undertones. Sweet nose, followed by cocoa and coffee flavors. Bleeds into a vanilla and oaky finish, dry and astringent from residual coffee and hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick, but not sticky.

jimstrassburg (57) - Germantown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Deep brown-black beer. Thick two-toned head brown changing to tan up top. The nose is complex and very nice. I pick up malt, chocolate, caramel, sweet vanilla, and coffee. Taste is thick and delicious. This beer is a meal. Most of what I picked up in the aroma comes out in the taste. Full bodied with a clean finish (little aftertaste). Very nice.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2005
Very dark, almost black beer with good looking intens brown thick creamy head. Great intens roasted aromaís with a extreme mild caracter. Powerfull but well dosed vanilla touch in the nose and also hints of irish coffee and top class black chocolate. Afther all this power the elegant accents are comming up. Lemongrass, laurell leaf, orange zest and fine hops. The taste is intens with outspoken touches of burned malts and mild expresso coffee. The middelpallet is soft and velvety and hast hints of vanilla, crŤme brullťe and mild black chocolate. It end with a refreshing floxery-hoppy finish. This beers is an elegant powerbooster. At the Copenhagen Beer Festival.

Radek Kliber (6324) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 24, 2005
Thick, black brew contrasting neatly with creamy snow cap on top. Aroma is a very nice combination of refreshing hops, true vanilla. Clean nose, nice citrus character shows with next try. Flavours were strongly influenced by oak aging, plenty of malt, acidic citrus done just right .Oak aging really help this beer (which in not always the case!)

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2005
creamy. Black with mocha top. Definite vanilla from the cask. Lace. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, hoppy, very balanced. The oak gives it that 4th dimension. Thanks Viggio.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2005
22 oz bottle: thick and slightly sludgy pour, mostly opaque dark chocolate body. Steady, dark tan and creamy head. Thick, piney aromatics mix with tobacco leaves, hop flowers, roasted ginger and chocolate ice cream to form a unique and inspired aroma. Smooth and oily body, which I donít usually enjoy, but here, coupled with the astringent chocolate-hop bitterness and vinous plums is nice and even relaxing. A long slow bitterness encompasses the tongue and coats the throat. Hop belches ensue and bring a smile. Developing oaky tannins as it warms and it truly shines: a wonderful nip on a 45F degree night in MayÖ

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Thick dark black pour with a dense brown head. Chocolate and roasted aroma. Snappy bitter hit right up front, followed by a roasted grain flavor. Hop flavor and bitterness in the back end. Laces well down the glass. Some oak flavor and dark fruit as it warms.
