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).

I've determined that I'm becoming a huge fan of oaked or barrel aged stouts, more so than regular stouts. I love the flavorful combination of stout chocolatiness with oaky vanilla a la Bourbon County Stout or Brooklyn Black Ops, so I was somewhat disappointed to find out that the vanilla notes were much more subdued in this brew than in those, but I still found the oak-aged Yeti to be quite enjoyable. The burnt ember black body with dark khaki head was quite impressive, and the aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, and the Yeti's distinguishing pacific hoppiness was appetizing. Likewise flavors in the taste along with some oak, vanilla, and dark red fruit. Delicious smooth mouthfeel and absolutely no alcohol bite in the finish was a nice bonus. A great drinkable imperial stout, which I also was successfully able to pair with some chocolate hazelnut biscotti for dessert. Distinct and delicious overall.

Pours an opaque deep brown with a medium brown head which is dense and lingers.....aroma of coffee, chocolate.....taste is strong coffee, bitter chocolate but smooth dropping into a bittered finish with more coffee notes. Nice cold night winter’s brew, and tonight is one of those nights.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2015 Purchased from town earlier tonight. $12.00 for the 650 mL bottle. To oversized snifter, it pours a mahogany-tinted charcoal dark brown with which an off-khaki head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of raisins, cocoa nibs/baker’s chocolate powder, raspberries, vanillin, pumpernickel, mashed bosc pears, pipe tobacco, prunes, mint, and young oak. Tastes the same with the addition sweet potatoes, dried plantains, noble hops, coffee syrup, and London yeast. Best Great Divide beer tried thus far

Big beer. So much flavor. Hops are very noticable but small enough to not hide the flavor.
