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).

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

This beer had a lot of smoke from the bottle. It poured a dark black with a very dark and thick khaki head that left a lot of lacing around the glass. This is definitely a beautiful beer. The aroma is dark roasted malts, earthy, woodiness, some faint chocolate. The taste is chocolate,dark roasted coffee, some vanilla, very sweet yet balanced with the hop bitterness. There is also a distinct woodiness i’m assuming that comes from the oak that is somewhat smokey. You also pick up a little bit of alcohol but it is hidden quite well for a 9.5% abv. This beer is thick, almost like oil. I was extremely impressed by this beer and would highly recommend.

@ Havregatan 150130. Bottle (650 ml) from Systembolaget. Roasted malty with woody and hoppy notes, lots of chocolate and coffee, vanilla, full body with an oily texture. The finish is long, dry, bitter and roasted with chocolate. A wonderful beer!

22 oz bottle. Pours a thick black with a huge dark tan head with nice lacing. Smells of roasted coffee and a oak bbq smoker. You get roasted coffee, sweet toffee, vanilla, and citrusy hops. The palate is full bodied but not overly thick. Finishes with a nice hop bitterness that’s sticky but not dry. Wonderful stout.

Alengrin (2986) - BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 Courtesy of Benzai, tasted at tderoeck’s place. Black colour, deep beige, creamy head. Deep chocolatey maltiness, chocolate cake, mocha, cold espresso, liquorice, toasted bread and - as expected - some vanilla-like oaky tannins. Big and thick, oily mouthfeel, profoundly malty with nuttiness and big black chocolate presence, spicy accents, strong and mouth filling roasted black coffee bitterness increasing towards the end; far away in the back, the oaky tannins appear again, but in a way more subtle than I got used to from oak-aged stouts, could have been a bit more for me. Nevertheless, this is clearly a big stout in all respects, flawless, impressive, deep and rich. Lovely.

Bottle shared with tderoeck, 77ships and Alengrin @ Tim needs to get rid of his ticks tasting. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized dark brown head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, roasted malts lightly, coffee strongly. Taste malts, medium coffee, some roast, strong bitter. Medium to full body and carbonation. Pretty damn good, although I don’t get the oak aging that clearly.
