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).

aroma: chocolate, raisin, fruit/cherry, hops remind me of "west coast," slight grapefruit--like scotch, really. palate: extra cremey, smooth, thick, full, round, wow. flavor: juicy, bitter, chocolate, roasted, pretty hoppy! woody. appearance: scattered lacing, billowing brown head, mmm... syrupy pour, opaque black/brown body. overall: awesome stout, but a too imperial in the end. very, very big brew.

lamas (1527) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 19, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Jet-black gurgly thick pour with a HUGE fluffy brown head that leaves chunks of lace. The darkest head I’ve seen so far. Plenty of toasty malts and bitter hops in the aroma along with some chocolate, coffee and hints of sweet vanilla beans and brown sugar. Thick and smooth. Tons of roasty malts and hops give this some sizeable sweetness with a very bitter finish. Some chocolate and coffee are present along with just a touch of warming alcohol at the end. Much fuller and richer than the regular Yeti.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - MAY 17, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 Could be bad lighting,but I couldn’t see any hint of light,through the black/ruby,body. Nice,creamy,khaki,head. The lacing left will stain a glass. Dark malt,roasty,slightly hoppy,aroma. Some tobacco,charcoal,and wood as well. Very creamy,still thick,and lingering. Becomes more creamy upon breathing and warming. Burnt wood,chocolate,coffee,and light vanilla,fill the mouth. You can pretty much chew this beer,but at the same time,still creamy,and quaffable,or I guess,as quaffable as a IS can be. Lingering roasty,dark chocolate,and burnt wood,barely round out the big hop profile.The more it warms the more the hops linger.

Bockyhorsey (2626) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Had a malty chocolate aroma. Black body with big head that looked like the top od a malt shake. Good lacing. Had an alcohol presence at first then a roasted chocolate flavor at the finish. A good beer.

ABUSEDGOAT (2469) - California, USA - MAY 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 Black pour, large tan head, decent lacing and retention. Roasted hoppy aroma with coffee, chocolate, caramel, grapefruit and vanilla. Medium to heavy body, bittersweet finish. Enjoyable stuff.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Bottle poured black with a awesome thick chocolate color head and lacing. Aroma was heavy with roasty chocolate and malt. Flavor is smooth with a medium body. Alcohol is very well hidden. Roasty malts chocolate and coffee. Very easy drinking stout.

hezron (613) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2005
First deep breath over the glass and I notice lots of alcohol with a woody twist. Second breath and I pick out some coffee and chocolate. Third breath I notice just a hint of licorice and/or dried fruit. Appearance is black with a small, creamy brown head and pretty good lacing. Flavor is initally a rusty dried fruit, then a woody chocolate and roasty, bitter coffee. Warming and clinging to the back of the throat. More balanced than the regular yeti, but not as flavorful in my opinion. Full body, good creamy feel and a slightly metallic finish.

Metalhead (643) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2005
This was not that impressive at first since I served it too cold. As it warmed past 60F in became a wonderful beer containing chocolate,mild coffee,vanilla,oak. Roasty yet smooth. Hops were mild and not overdone. Left the lips sticky. Nice but $$.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Deep dark chocolate flavor with a wonderful hop bite that is rounded out by vanilla and oak. The mouthfeel on this is wonderful. Probably my second favorite imp stout, Expedition being number one.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Perfect black pour with a towering creamy brown head which produces very nice lacing. Initial bitterness is up front, but a roasty malt quickly stands in next to the hop presence. A creamy malt and light vanilla round out the aroma. The first flavor impression is of heavily roasted, coffee malts. A definate hop presence, but the roasted malts keep it from being harsh. As it warms, hops become more presence. Fairly smooth, some light oak flavor towards the end along with hop bitterness and a hint of alcohol. More definate vanilla come out as it warms.
