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).

Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 23.03.15. Black. Foamy and dense brown head and lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee and wood. Similar taste. Rather good. Soft mouthfeel.

650ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, cold coffee, vanilla and oak. Flavour is bitter chocolate, coffee and a little salty. Full bodied, oily texture, low carbonation. Finish is bitter and roasted.

Hopmaestro (707) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2015
Aroma is heavy and dark chocolate notes combined with some licorice and wet wood. The taste is like the regular Yeti’s long lost big brother coming home from a trip in the woods, with all kinds of stuff in the fur after wading through cold wooden creeks, tree branches and moist forest vegetation. Roasted but rounded and heavy malts, coffee, licorice. In the aftertaste the sweetness takes over more, but there’s also a kind of lingering bitterness in the background.

We had mixed feelings on this beer that cost around $9. Part of the reason was it was so unique.

Lawger (235) - SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2015
Jet black with smallish tan head. Huge roasted aroma, slightly smoky or charred, some dark forest floor notes, chinese mushroom soy and a deep, dark fruitiness. Full bodied palate, big malty body, some sweetness and a rather big bitterness towards the long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wlajwl (4784) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Aroma is coffee, dark malts and a strong hint of acidity. The flavor is dark malts, coffee, mild dark fruit, chocolate and a mix of acidity and very slight sourness in the finish.

furthur (491) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle at share, big dark head, fades. Aroma coffee, cocoa, mineral, vanilla, cookies, plum, molasses. Taste coffee, tobacco, cocoa, anise, molasses, vanilla, salty, spice, oak. finish is dry, roasty and bitter coffee, anise and astringent oak. Palate is rich and thick, carbonation nicely subdued. This is quite good, but just a bit astringent from the oak I think.

Great complex aroma of oak, tobacco, leather, roasted malts, coffee with cream, black licorice, dark chocolate and slight booze. That’s a lot in one sniff. Interestingly, the aroma is not hoppy at all. Pitch black in color with a moderate amount of dark tan foam. Just beautiful. Taste is roasty with tons of oak and has an ever so slight burn at the end. Subsequent tastes uncover a god amount of hops, and a soy sauce flavor. Palate is outstanding. Just thick enough, just silky enough. Very well made. This would be a good cigar beer.

Look: pours a dark black. Dark brown head with dark lacing. Can't see through at all too dark. Smell: big chocolate. Oak. Coffee. Vanilla. Taste: chocolate. Coffee. Vanilla. Lots of barrel. 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:
