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).

Feel: oily mouth feel. Very thick almost gritty. Bitterness from the coffee. Overall: great beer. Love the barrel flavors. Nice coffee that's not too overwhelming. First drank: home 2:18/15 Vintage:

ARH (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2015
22oz bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is mellow, but full and warm, with earthy notes of wood and smoke followed by milk chocolate and vanilla. The third wave of aromas comes through with a light fruity undertone. The beer pours like motor oil. It’s dark and opaque with a dark espresso colored, dense, small bubble that retains a thin fuzzy surface, a medium thick ring, and tons of sticky, dense, tight lace. The beer is a medium high sweet up front with a medium high bitter finish. The chewy texture is complemented by a fuzzy carbonation. The full, smoked malt body contains flavors of milk chocolate, cacao, and light fruit initially, then it finishes syrupy smooth, with a smoked quality, vanilla, wood. The aftertaste is dry and lightly astringent; a bit ashy with a light licorice flavor and dry resin quality. It tries to clean up, but there’s a distinct cigar tobacco flavor that dominates and lingers.

SB Linköping repslagargatan, flaska. Kolsvart med mörkbrunt skum. Arom som vanlig Yeti. Choklad kakao ek i eftersmaken. Fint beska lätt bitter i tonen. Tjock och len maltig på tungan. Ligger fint på läppen.

Second worst in compaing Espresso, Chocolate, Oatmeal, Oak aged & Normal, right after Oatmeal. Vanilla, smoke, lighter in both mouthfeel and toasted malts, a bit thinner, and just feels like a bit less tasty.

SG111 (504) - New York, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Bottled 09/20/14. Pours pitch black (very dark) with a small tan head. Aroma is chocolate, oak, some coffee, surprisingly boozy Aroma. Flavor is rich dark chocolate, and a woody smoky finish. Longer Bitter coffee finish lingers thereafter. As it warms the smoky elements of the oak become more prominent. Fantastic. So good.

Vanilla, coffee, and wood are prevalent, some smoke and chocolate milk in the background. Excellent beer.

A bit more powerful than an ordinary yeti. Smoke, very dark and bitter chocolate. This one will probably reach 5 stars if you hide the next bottle for a couple of years!

Flaska från systemet - doftar som en vanlig yeti. Ekfatstonerna skiner igenom i eftersmaken. Silkeslen i munnen och försiktigt kolsyrad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice. Very nice. I prefer the espresso variety in a head to head. But I cannot complain about this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
