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).

rustic red wine oak aroma, pitch black with a large tightly packed dark brown head, the oak hits right away like licking the inside of a barrel, then it mellows out into a desert like rich dark chocolate, a distinct burntness like tobacco lingers then a burst of hoppiness before a hint of sweetness and once again overpowering oak, mouthfeel is creamy yet assertive, overall I think it is an excellent beer yet the oak is perhaps overly prevalent

Pitch black with a lively brownish head that lingers, piling up in the corners of the glass. Strong, longlasting aromas of vanilla, orange, coffee, caramel, and nuttiness. A bite of alcohol and full hops precedes a slightly bitter coffee bean/chocolate beer. It’s creamy on the tongue, and finishes with a somewhat dry vanilla coda. Lacing sticks to the glass like you wouldn’t believe. Rich, complex, and amazingly balanced.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2008 Yeah, I’ve had this a few times and each time it is less impressive. The original is better, but my opinion of the regular Yeti is not as high as it used to be. Blew me away as Maverick, something has either changed with the beer, or with me. The oak just doesn’t work for me in this brew. Still, I wouldn’t pour it out of my glass.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2006 If possible, it pours even darker than the regular Yeti. Brown head, firm and even. Rich aroma, molasses and chocolate, piney hops. Just a touch of oak. Nearly smooth as silk, if not for the fairly high level of carbonation. Rounded, roasted and bitter. Some acrid burnt notes apparent in a fairly astringent finish. Alcoholic warming. Slightly more complex than the regular version, with the touch of oak.

(Bottle) Tried a few of them, but it still takes me by surprise every time. It pours like crude oil with a thick brown head. The aroma is roasty, chocolate, coffee, earthy, woody. The flavour is very much like many other Imperial Stouts, but much more powerfull and with huge amounts of hops and oak. Thick feel and full body. A huge favorite.

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, I’m just not a big fan of oak. However, this is an excellent beer and definitely worth a try.
