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).

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.
