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).

Poured out of the bottle in slow motion. Most beautiful head Iíve ever seen. Aromas of both dark and milk chocolate, vanilla, rich dark fruits: cherry, plum, fig. Caramel, toffee, slight booze as an accent, tropical fruit and pine. Tastes of massive rich chocolate accented by dark fruits up front. Vanilla, oak, citrus, and pine join the party soon after. Licorice pops in and out. Finish is a mix of dark chocolate, pine, and dark roast coffee. Nice slightly lingering bitterness. So far, my favorite beer on Earth.

superspak (2605) - Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2014
22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 11/14/2011. Pours dense pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark brown head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, toast, molasses, char, light smoke, oak, light clove, vanilla, herbal, and oak/roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, oak, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, toast, char, molasses, light smoke, oak, light clove, vanilla, herbal, and oak/roasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roast, caramel, toast, char, molasses, light smoke, oak, vanilla, and oak/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and balance of big dark/roasted malt and moderate oak flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, silky, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is incredible. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely incredible oak aged imperial stout. All around fantastic complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and moderate oak flavors; and extremely smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

Fatehunter (1216) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottled Nov 17, 2009, which was just before I bought it. Four and half years later I cracked it open. It pours a half finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is rich and complex. Lots of chocolate, raisins, oak and cocoa powder. The taste is slightly boozy, some roasted malt, milk, chocolate and oak too. It finishes with a bit of metallic bitterness. The texture is silky and smooth with low carbonation. Quite good, though I think this bottling has/had hit its aging apex.

revolution2718 (229) - New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2014
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

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
