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).

Bottle. Thnaks to JCapriotti for this! Sturdy mocha froth atop starless midnight. Roasted malt, big coffee, dark bittersweet chocolate, light hoppiness, and light woody notes. Taste is BIG coffee and chocolate with sweet roasty maltiness, pleasant hops, light vanilla and wood. Body is thick and creamy . Very slick and oily in parts. Some stickiness lingering as well. Finish is more coffee, light alcohol, dark chocolate, light hops, vanilla and fresh cut wood. Excellent beer! I need a case of this!

Basically totally opaque with a nice thick dark tan colored head and tons of lacing. Rich aroma of chocolate and piney hops, with oak and coffee. Massive flavors of dark chocolate, delicous piney hoppiness, coffee, and vanilla. Absolutely, positively delicous.

You know how its gonna pour! Aromas of chocolate and vanilla laced with sour Bing cherries. Big heavy body with heavy American hop flavors, vanilla, chocolate and raisins. (YES!) Some real added complexity without any real bretta addition, like you will find in many oak aged beers. Probably because they only use the chips. Finishes exceedingly bitter, far too much for me for this style, but there is no doubt about it, this is a great beer. Great Divide is really coming along as a premier craft brewer.

Holy crap! Thanks JCW ! Pours pitch black. Big fruity nose, berrys, bits of smoke and roast and a touch of citrusy hops. Chewy, full bodied brew, pleasently creamy texture. An aggressive, in yer face brew. Big malts and hops rip at yer senses, somewhat overwhelmig at times. I like aggressive brews like this, makes it all worth it. Lots of chocolate and roast flavors, black patent dryness. The wood is laid back IMHO but evident. As it warms notes of vanilla and alcohol start to mess with yer head, damn! Long, dry roasty finish, WOW! Thanks a ton John!

Thanks for this one Ernest! Iíve been really wanting to try this beer. Pours an oily black, hint of deep brown at edges. Good dark brown head that actually changed color and became beige after a few minutes. Nice. Aroma of choclate, vanilla, some ethanol. Flavor centers around chocolate, with a vanilla note in the background, some light wood notes, and a slightly hot finish. I actually preferred the regular Yeti, go figure. Not that this wasnít enjoyable.

DocLock (7733) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Thanks to JCapriotti for this. Pours obsidian, with big tan head. Aroma of malt, big chocoff, oak, vanilla, prunes, plums. Tastes roasty malty, with big chocoff, a delicious oaky, vanila, bourbony taste, and big hops. Very complex and very well balanced. The alcohol makes a finishing appearance, but the beer stays dense and complex as it finishes. Wonderful. More complex and balanced than Heresy.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Pours an opaque black color. Aroma was piney hops, some grapefruit with a a kick of roasted coffee, vanilla, and alcohol in the nose as well. Flavor is sweet and woody with chocolate, roasted nuts, and some cherries, raspberries, and a dryer alcohol finish. Palate is oily and thin. Very interesting.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2005
Lots of pine and citrus hops in the aroma, along with a good dose of chocolate and some alcohol. Very dark brown color, good sized head. Again, lots of hops and chocolate in the flavor, quite intense, very bitter. Oak flavoring is very subtle, I only notice it because I am looking for it. Very much an American-style imperial stout - big and hoppy.

Dark brown with creamy white head. Coffee aroma apparent, but hoppiness in the flavor.

Deep dark brown in color with a nice tan thick head. Aroma of dark chocolate and roasty. Big palate. Palate is smooth. Rich flavors. Excellent enjoyable beer.
