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).

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.

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

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.

Sarlacc83 (811) - Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle. A: Big, thick pour with a sea of foam dark mocha head. Fantastic legs. N: Rye, black peppercorn, bittersweet chocolate. Oak and caramel. Dried red peppers. Big roast coffee and char. Molasses. Grassy.p T: Big peppercorn heat, big charred bitterness, sweetness minoring. M: Heavy motor oil. Alcohol is well hidden. O: To call this intense understates the mouth punch. Reminds of the old Abyss, albeit with a ton of oak. Too much oak, actually. No one cares since it’s top 50.

On tap at McNellie’s OKC. Pours a dark brown with a foamy brown head that doesn’t last terribly long. Moderate lacing. Smells of chocolate, coffee and malt with a bit of fruit. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, plums and raisin. Definitely has a woody character compared to the original Yeti. The fruit and alcohol become more apparent as it warms a bit. Definitely a bit of bitter in this one. Medium mouth that oils the tongue. This is nice, but I personally prefer the original a bit more.

Flaska från systembolaget. Mörbrun nästan svart vätska. Ljusbrunt skum. Doft av fat, sirap, choklad och russin. Smak av mörk choklad, bränt socker och kavring. Härligt rund eftersmak

McNeillR (1242) - SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Peering imperial stout nose, not buttoned down by any stretch but little depth here. Initial taste is easy going. Soft scratchy roastedness. odd itchy rye vibe. Overdrawn, matchstick dryness. Priceless Yeti malt thread, decent enough carbonation. Diverted bitterness, comfortable roast finish. Sticky sweet boiled over drinking choc finish, lightly shuffled bitter linger. Impressive but lacking a gear the others had.

650ml bottle poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is opaque brownish black with a medium sized creamy brown head, with good retention. Aroma of milk chocolate, rye sourdough bread and coffee. Flavours of milk chocolate, rye sourdough bread, coffee, plums and oak wood. Taste is light-medium sweet and light bitter. Palate is full bodied, creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall a good Imperial Stout, but the flavours of milk chocolate clash with the harsh rye sourdough bread and plums.
