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).

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 (550) - 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 (166) - 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!

@Nedre Mölla 24/3-14. Flaska från Systembolaget. Arom: Trä, humlig, kaffe och choklad. Smak: Kaffe, choklad, rostade toner samt rejäl beska. Avslutningen är lång, framförallt när det gäller beskan. Munkänslan ganska fyllig.

ninecats (157) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle. PItch black, three fingers, some lacings. Aroma is sweet caramell, vanilla, wood, cookies, cocoa and some swedish julmust (a rather sweet Coke-like-soda). Taste is massive and comples, with heavy roasted tones, dark bread, cocoa, vanilla and oak tones that quickly turns into a cascade of hoppy bitterness. Ends lingering bitter, much like the regular Yeti. Full body, smooth oily texture. Average carbo. Well made.

Aroma is filled with caramell and vanilla with a hint of smoke. It’s creamy and has a very nice hint of bitterness. The taste is vanilla, chocolate and cream. A very nice beer.

Kraftfull kropp, lång eftersmak. Mycket kaffe. Tycker originalet gör sig bättre än den lagrade. Relativt lättdrucken för att vara en imperial stout.

tectactoe (1871) - Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle: Both fresh & 2007 vintage @ about 6 years old. Review of the 2007, as I actually preferred it (despite showing some signs of old age). Black hole black; a decent sized, tan head forms but recedes to a collar pretty quick. Nice bubbles for a six year old brew. Aroma has light oxidation, a light induction of boozy sherry & the smallest hint of cardboard. Larger notes of prunes, raisins, dried dark fruit, anise, black licorice, & just a hint of spicy oak. Taste is more on the chocolate malt side of things; bit cocoa nibs up front, a little sweet with a bitterly roasted back-end left on the tongue. Prunes, dates; sweet & even lightly tart dark fruits mingle mid-palate, something not as lively in the fresh bottles. Finish has more chocolate & finally a nice helping of oak & lingering vanillin. Overall, a good beer, but quite honestly my least favorite of the Yeti variants (fresh or aged) to date.

Bottle by myself. Rating 1600, by myself. Pours a very nice cascading black with swirly tan head. Aroma is coffee, vanilla, oak and roasted malts. Taste isbitter chocolate and hops, coffee, vanilla and oak. Creamy mouthfeel, smooth. Excellent beer.
