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).

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 I’ve ever had, but one of the best BEERS I’ve 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!

I’ll say right off the bat I’m 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 doesn’t dominate the flavor like several others I’ve 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 coffee’s, 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.

Creamy, slightly hoppy, vanilla malty goodness. This dark brew is a standout in the imperial stout category. The alcohol and the brewing is extraordinary. A perfect example of the Great Divide standard.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2009 Bottle (650ml) At Volo, shared with blankboy. Wow. Deep cola-coloured pour, Mocha head, settles quickly, lovely lacing. Not carbonated much at all (yeah!). Aroma of cream, bitterness, dark roast malts, a touch of pleasant mildness. Flavour ... creamy roasty malts - nicest imperial stout I’ve ever had. Felt like Bailey’s in the mouth. Medium linger but pleasant, with almost sweet vanilla notes. Wonderful. Memorable. A must try - top of the range.
