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).

Black with small head. Chocolate and coffee aroma and taste with wooden and lasting bitter aftertaste. Especially wooden taste that is making the difference to the basic yeti.

cobaink2 (224) - seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle October 13th 2013. Pours a thick motor oil black. Head of milk chocolate and coffee. Nicely balanced. No overwhelming notes. Quite balanced possibly due to aging. Lots of dark chocolate malts mixed with subdued vanilla and lots of espresso on the back end.

neongolden (882) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2015
(650ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours pitch black with a moderate, dense and long lasting mocha head and lace. Aroma strong on roasted malts, coffee, hot cocoa, earth, prune, light vanilla, burnt sugar, toasted wood. Fairly sweet with some hop bitterness and anise buried behind. Palate is sweet and rounded with milk chocolate, dark malt, molasses, vanilla, light woodiness and toast. Lightly toasted woody notes and vanilla more prominent towards the finish, which is drier and bitter with hop, roast, and some coffee grounds. Aftertaste very dry, bitter and woody. No alcohol. Medium-full creamy body with very soft carb, feels lovely in the mouth. This is not a huge bold stout in comparison to some, but the flavours are still rich and the balance is excellent. Very drinkable, not a wrong move, great stuff.
