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).

Pours black worn a bit of tan head. Nose is hoppy, roasty malt, dark chocolate, caramel, woody, a touch of coffee. Taste is front loaded hop flavor/bitterness at the start with some malt roast, but as it goes down the finish is delicious roasted malts, dark chocolate, barrel, a hint of coffee. Coats my mouth. I like the aftertaste a lot, but the initial taste is more hoppy than I want in a stout. Aged a year I bet this is really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark opaque black, thick dark brown head. Roasted coffee malts, quite sweet nose, vanilla. Very complex. Bitter dark chocolate notes, with sweeter undertones. Long finish. Quite thick bodied, fairly carbonated. Really well balanced, subtle beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Berard (290) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - APR 6, 2014
Draft. Pours black with creme colored head that dissipates. String aroma of chocolate with some hop presence. Coffee flavors dominate with chocolate after tones and mild hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Augdraught1981 (116) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2014
Motor oil pour with dark brown thin head. The first thing I smell is rubbing alcohol & hops. Very robust chocolate flavor & the alcohol is evident more so than any other beer I can remember having with a slow gentle burn all the way down. Chocolate takes second to the alcohol for me in this one, very enjoyable but very potent.

Lothore (548) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours pitch black with a nice, 1 finger coffee head. S- Very hoppy, deep roasted malts, thick caramel, oak. T- Taste is very oakey up front with lots of dark roasted malt notes throughout the middle, followed by a deep coffee and hop aftertaste finished with strong alocohol notes. M- Thick with ample carbonation. D- This one just didn’t seem to balance well to me. Not because it was an imperial stout but because the strong flavors just seemed to take away from each other more than they supported each other.

chribban (163) - SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2014
Very dark brown, almoust black beer. Brown, creamy, head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Oak, chocolate, vanilla, cookies, smoke, cacao beans, brown sugar and coffee.

Taste: Raisin, dried fruit, wood, oak, cream, vanilla, roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate.

Full body with a oily texture and little carbonation.
I just LOVE this!
