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).

Much thanks goes out to Mustang3 for sharing this. You da man Kevin! Pours an opaque black body, with a thick and bubble mocha head. Tons of bubles! Aromas are coffee, molasses, chocolate, some oak, and mint. A nice array. Taste is bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted oaky malts. Very good. FInish is bitter, astringent, with an espresso aftertaste. A great rare treat. Thanks so much Kevin, I appreciate it.

This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy bubbles with a dark brown frothy top of large sized bubbles over finely sized ones. The body was opaque black with no hope of visible carbonation and sided by a very nice thick lacing. The aroma was very nice with woody malty dark chocolate roasted notes. The mouth feel was strong and biting initially and a hop malt bite in the finish. The flavor was thick with dark roasted coffee dark malts mild chocolate and heavy burnt roasted malts. One of the best brews I have had in a while!

Had on tap. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt, with oak aroma also evident. Oak is in the flavor, though not as dominant as some oak-aged beers. Still, Iím just not a big fan of oak. However, this is an excellent beer and definitely worth a try.

Pouring this beer is like pouring a glass of oil! it is black with a medium tan head. smell is faint but has chocoalte and caramel. the taste is slightly bitter with chocolate, hops, roasted coffee and slightly burned sugars. Iím more of a fan of the traditonal english stouts (such as the fullers), but this beer really impressed me! Nice slow drinking beer in my book.

Draft at the Grey Lodge in Philly. Now this is a beer. Nice sweet Imperial taste to it and the oak wasnít overpowering. This is a keeper.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2005 Very dark brown, high sticky mocha head. Huge dessert aromas: chocolate, cream, coffee, cola. Sweet and slick with a good amount of hop bitterness left and some alcohol heat. Liquerish, brandyish, smooth vanilla notes, lush mouthfeel.

Mount Rushmore of a head. Tan color foam that looked like a root beer float. Molassses like aroma wofts up and caresses the scenses. Tar pit black in color. Heavy vannila and roasted malt flavoring...very creamy and smooth. I didnít think it was all that bitter.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle: Dark opaque black with a medium, creamy, and thick brown head that lasts. The aroma is sweet, almost syrupy, coffee, roasted chocolate, and a hint of licorice. The taste is espresso, chocolate, brown sugar, cookie dough, and bitter licorice. Full bodied, moderate carbonation, excellent creamy mouthfeel. I canít taste or smell any oak presence.

IndianaRed (3042) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle Pours a black (did not pass the light bulb light test) with a very thick light tan head. Tipping the glass shows the lacing just hanging out for the duration. Excellent. Very nice. Chocolatey dark roasted goodness. Molasses vanilla, cookie dough maybe, Bananas a lot of soft mellow fruity tones. Nice fairly heavy feel. Flavor however is a bit of a dissaointment . Quite a bit "hot" and hoppy. Larry is rightt. "Where is the oak" Lots of sharp bitter hoppiness that dominates here. Some roasted charcoal flavors but overshadowed. Nice overall but the oak aged is abit over rated..

Wow...tar in a bottle! Well, thatís what it looks like, anyway! It pours smoothly with fairly large tan head. The sweet, hoppy aroma hits pretty hard and fast. The taste is complex, more than most Imperials Iíve tried. Itís sweet, coffee-like, with a bitter licorice or burnt sugar finish. There is a subtle tingle in there too, a fermented tingle that adds depth to the taste. The alcohol is pretty much buried beneath the dark, intense flavor. The body is a bit heavy, sticky at times, but it fits considering the kind of brew this is. I like this stout...I like it a lot. I canít drink much of it at a time, but itís good!
