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).

22 oz bottle: Pours thick, black, & oily w/ a short lived light brown sugar head. Chocolatey w/ some herbal hop @ first. Lightly roasty w/ moderate oaky notes & vanilla w/ hints of black currant; Medium caramel aroma and a bit of perfumey alcohol. The roast aroma gets stronger as it warms, but still dominated by chocolate. Nutty as well as it warms. The flavor is a bit burnt up front w/ bitter dark grains. Vanilla shows up mid palate, but disappears into the finish. Balanced just to malty w/ some semi sweet dark chocolate into the finish w/ a bit of alcohol. Some herbal hops in the semi sweet finish with some lingering bitterness in the aftertaste which is also a bit woody oak and very mellow. Medium carbonation, smooth, velvety texture, but a bit hot with a very full body. Very big and very rich flavor. This is not something I could drink more than one of in a night.

(Bottle) Sampled at the RateBeer post-party at the Belgium Comes To Cooperstown 2005 in Cooperstown, NY. Oaky, roasted malt and sweet chocolate. Frothy yellowish-brown with an opaque body. The flavour is too bitter.

Taster @ PIB. Pours a beautiful deep black color. A faint oak and hoppy aroma cuts through the roasted smells coming from this awesome beer. Slight cherry and chocolate flavor, with good hints of tobacco. Wish i could drink this one all day.

Bottle. Cafe Volo. Black body, with a generous creamy khaki head. Muted roast chocolate and malt in the aroma. Deeply malty flavour, with notes of wood, molasses and brown sugar. Bitter hops in the finish. Complex rich flavour. Alcohol is not particularly noticeable or noteworthy, which is surprising. Full bodied smooth oily palate. Very nice beer but didnít blow me away as it did for other people.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 Great hearty Stout had this at the (PIB) Portland International Beerfest. I really liked this beer. It had a great overall flavor and the oak undertones where awesome. Hope to drink more.

Bottle from Surdyks in Minneapolis. I waited for months, and really wanted this to be my favorite beer ever. I love the way the regular Yeti overpowers yet seduces me with everything that is right and fitting for a testosterone-driven dark stout. The oaked version, however, I reluctantly must report was a bit sweet, a bit on the artificial-tasting vanilla flavor, and a shade buttery on the palate. With the gorgeous pour and the hospitalizingly rich body, It is still a great brew, and the abv and hop power it hides so well (yet celbrates) is well worth hoisting a glass. Well done, but Iím stocking my cellar with the regular Yeti.

Super thick dark pour. Simliar in texture to an Expedition stout. Tan head. Dark. Caramel, chocolate, molasses. Nose reminds me of chocolate milk. Sour, bitter, coffee flavor. Lively. No real oak aged flavors. Some roasted nut notes.

WOW now this is a grat imperial stout. Pours out black with a dark brown head. Flavor is intensely malty and chocolaty. aroma is supurb and well worth the 6.50 a bottle.
