A great imperial stout. Pours an incredibly thick, deep black with a thick brown head. Smells great, coffee and vanilla and peanut butter and caramel. Taste is super creamy, with lots of vanilla, oak chips and a bitter coffee finish. A bit of booze lasts to the aftertaste. Had in the bottle.

I've determined that I'm becoming a huge fan of oaked or barrel aged stouts, more so than regular stouts. I love the flavorful combination of stout chocolatiness with oaky vanilla a la Bourbon County Stout or Brooklyn Black Ops, so I was somewhat disappointed to find out that the vanilla notes were much more subdued in this brew than in those, but I still found the oak-aged Yeti to be quite enjoyable. The burnt ember black body with dark khaki head was quite impressive, and the aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, and the Yeti's distinguishing pacific hoppiness was appetizing. Likewise flavors in the taste along with some oak, vanilla, and dark red fruit. Delicious smooth mouthfeel and absolutely no alcohol bite in the finish was a nice bonus. A great drinkable imperial stout, which I also was successfully able to pair with some chocolate hazelnut biscotti for dessert. Distinct and delicious overall.

Amazing aroma of vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Great looking beer pours and ebony color with a lasting tan well laced head. Creamy feel with a smoky, chocolate taste. Mildly bitter finish.

Pours an opaque deep brown with a medium brown head which is dense and lingers.....aroma of coffee, chocolate.....taste is strong coffee, bitter chocolate but smooth dropping into a bittered finish with more coffee notes. Nice cold night winter’s brew, and tonight is one of those nights.

Pours a dead black. Pours thick as tar (in a good way). Thick coffee stained foam lingers. Smells of creamy chocolate, sweet oak barrel and bourbon ( from hot alcohol scent). Very creamy and thick mouthfeel. Taste of bitter chocolate and sweet bourbon. As it warms it gains a vanilla, hot alcohol character. Really damn good oak aged stout!
