4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Originally rated on 7/30/08. esterday I tried the yeti imp. stout, so today its the oak aged yetiís turn. Like Y.I.S it pours a coal black body with a thin dark tan cap. The aroma immediatley hits you, vanilla, coffee, alcohol and a little fruit are present. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy, Flavor is complex with coffee, vanilla, chocolate and fruits all fighting for attention. Overall i like it (oak aged)better than the regular yeti, the coffee isnt as dominant, its more flavorful and smoother, you cant go wrong with either one though. Although its pricey it is a good beer thats worth your time.

Hell, I donít know. There are so many different versions of Yeti that I think Iíd have to have a flight of all of them at once to be able to tell a difference. I love the oak aged chocolate version and the espresso version. This one is good, too, but I donít know that I noticed anything distinctly different here. It pours dark brown, average tan head. The aroma is oak and chocolate and coffee and all the stuff I expected. The taste is the same. And itís really good, And I expected it to be really good. All I need to see on the label is "Yeti," and at this point I know Iím gonna enjoy it. I donít know that we need seventy slightly different variants.

Creamy and oily mouthfeel with lots of chocolate in the aroma. The BA adds some more depth and complexity but isnít that strong. The beer is very delicious but I have trouble to find it better from the non BA version to be honest. It became a bit more dry and more complex ...sure but the normal version has more toffee, body and sweetness which I enjoy a lot. Still both are masterpieces.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is dark chocolate, mild coffee, oakiness (combined with the sweet maltiness) is reminiscent of bourbon (without the bourbon, which is impressive). Taste is commmmmmplex. Dark fruits, sweet malts, roasted malts, coffee, some vanilla, wood, bourbon...so smooth and rich! Bitter finish. This beer is World Class without a doubt.
