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).

Aroma is filled with caramell and vanilla with a hint of smoke. It’s creamy and has a very nice hint of bitterness. The taste is vanilla, chocolate and cream. A very nice beer.

Kraftfull kropp, lång eftersmak. Mycket kaffe. Tycker originalet gör sig bättre än den lagrade. Relativt lättdrucken för att vara en imperial stout.

tectactoe (1535) - Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle: Both fresh & 2007 vintage @ about 6 years old. Review of the 2007, as I actually preferred it (despite showing some signs of old age). Black hole black; a decent sized, tan head forms but recedes to a collar pretty quick. Nice bubbles for a six year old brew. Aroma has light oxidation, a light induction of boozy sherry & the smallest hint of cardboard. Larger notes of prunes, raisins, dried dark fruit, anise, black licorice, & just a hint of spicy oak. Taste is more on the chocolate malt side of things; bit cocoa nibs up front, a little sweet with a bitterly roasted back-end left on the tongue. Prunes, dates; sweet & even lightly tart dark fruits mingle mid-palate, something not as lively in the fresh bottles. Finish has more chocolate & finally a nice helping of oak & lingering vanillin. Overall, a good beer, but quite honestly my least favorite of the Yeti variants (fresh or aged) to date.

MattH (638) - California, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle from 2010. Left this at a friends house a few years ago. I thought he drank it, but when I went to visit him yesterday he pulled it out of his fridge. Pour is jet black with no head. Flavor has a ton of vinous notes along with oak and vanilla. Roasted malts and chocolate are present as well, but with the aging they have become very subdued. I have never had the Oak Aged Yeti before, but I had the regular Yeti once without any age to it, and I remember it to be very intense. This beer was flavorful, but mellow.

Franzen (305) - SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2014
Very chocolate-y aroma with some caramell and vanilla. There are hints of wet wood and some smoke to be found as well.
Pitch black with beige head
The taste begins with chocolate and vanilla but is quickly overcome with coffe and a great spicy bitterness. The bitterness is really intense without being harsh, it changes between spicy and coffe like. It actually quite alot like chewing coffe beans
Full body, low carbonation and creamy texture
This is truly a fantastic imperial stout

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2014
650 ml bottle poured into snifter. Deep coffee color with a respectable cap of rich tan head that thins out after a few minutes leaving slight lacing. Earthy aroma of coffee, plums, slight smoke, and oddly enough, Play-Doh. Enormous flavor that starts off with malty sweetness and woody complexity transitioning into rich espresso and chocolate and a surprisingly hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is rich and silky, with minimal alcohol presence. This is a great beer to take your time with.

65 cl bottle. Vanilla, coffee and chocolate in aroma and taste. Subtle oak. Nice and round palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
