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: Dark roasted coffee beans, marzipan, toast, Madeira.
Appearance: A very very dark brown beer, black if you prefer, a tan big head that settles slowly, leaving good lacing.
Taste: Sweet brown sugar, oatmeal porridge, roasted bread crust, coffee and dark chocolate. Sweet port or Madeira. Coffee beans at the end.
Palate: Low carbonation, a huge body, oily and smooth, a finishing dryness.
Overall: This is really a great beer, full of flavor and delight.

Review from memory - had this at a weekend tasting a few months ago. Excellent looking beer, pitch black and with a tall espresso head. Roasted malts smell, along with dark chocolate, smoke and sour barrel. Taste dominated but not overwhelmed by roasted malts, bitter chocolate and some coffee, with feint vanilla notes. An excellent barrel-aged stout.

Bottle from a trade. Many thanks! Oily black, brown foam. Sweet nose of chocolate, mocha, roasted coffee and vanilla. Sweet with harsh bitterness. Good, but not my favourite stout.

Mm, som att dricka chokladpulver som första intryck. Bra stuns och bränd i eftersmaken. En riktigt nice julöl!

Thanks Matt for this one! Partagée en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina et Guillaume. De puissantes arômes herbacées émanent de la bouteille dès la capsule sautée. La bière est noire comme un tuyau de poêle et tombe lourdement dans mon verre. Mousse brune, collante et imposante. Une quantité presque indécente de houblons et de grains torréfiés. J’ai un curieux sentiment de croiser à nouveau une saison noire Impériale. En bouche le liquide est sec, presque déshydraté! C’est à ce point sec et torréfié que ça goûte presque le caoutchouc ou le plastique brûlé. Le bois dans lequel a maturé la bière devait être franchement jeune et vierge car je reçois des notes de chêne rabotté et fraîchement sablé. Très dure à boire pour moi.

willisread (2041) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 6, 2015
Thanks for sharing the bottle Jon! Pitch black pour with a small half-finger of brown foam. Oaky, woody aroma with dark fruit and coffee with a bit of sourness. Full body with a well-rounded mouthfeel and average carbonation. Very smooth with a slight creaminess on the palate. Dry but smooth finish that coats the palate and lingers. Some light bitterness but well-balanced.

Poured into a taster showing pitch black with a finger of latte color foam. The nose shows a good combination of coffee tartness, vanilla, and roasted coffee. The palate is very smoothly carbonated and full bodied. The first impression leads with light vanilla forwardness with light chocolate undertones. The mid palate shows the coffee tartness and slight alcoholic heat. The finish is mixture of the bright vanilla and dark coffee with a slight alcoholic spice that stays on the palate for a slight finish.

Nice end of the day beer. Oak comes through followed by chocolate coffee and a little sweetness
