COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crack open Yeti Imperial Stoutís 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 Yetiís already intense chocolate, roasted coffee malt flavor and hugely assertive hop profile. Who says you canít tame a Yeti? 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

Bottle from Surdyks in Minneapolis. I waited for months, and really wanted this to be my favorite beer ever. I love the way the regular Yeti overpowers yet seduces me with everything that is right and fitting for a testosterone-driven dark stout. The oaked version, however, I reluctantly must report was a bit sweet, a bit on the artificial-tasting vanilla flavor, and a shade buttery on the palate. With the gorgeous pour and the hospitalizingly rich body, It is still a great brew, and the abv and hop power it hides so well (yet celbrates) is well worth hoisting a glass. Well done, but Iím stocking my cellar with the regular Yeti.

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

rouhlas (313) - GREECE - DEC 18, 2014
650ml bottle. Black color with nice frothy creamy brown head. Roasted malty aroma, chocolate, milk chocolate, coffee, olives, light raisins and dark fruits. Sweet and bitter taste like the aroma, roasted malty with dark chocolate, milk chocolate, coffee. Medium silky body with soft carbonation and bittersweet chocolate aftertaste.

Small taste on tap @ Stoddardís. Pours very dark brown with a low brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, alcohol and smoked ham. Flavor is roasted malts, alcohol, coffee, smoke and plenty of hops. Greatness.

On draft. Aroma of loamy, oaky earth. Flavors of weak espresso, earthy mushrooms and... truffles? Biggest flavor is what I imagine oak would taste like. Delightful.

Pour is a beautiful pitch black with a dark tan head. Amazing looking beer. Leaves fantastic lacing too. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, oak, plums, vanilla. Taste is strong oak, and follows the aroma nicely. Dry, bitter fnish. Delicious.

What a treat. Rich colour and taste. From the dark cascading pour to the delicious last sip, a fantastic experience. Big thanks to the artisans in the 80205. Tells me those jokers in Golden have no excuse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A great oatmeal stout. I can hardly wait for my next bottle to fill a tall and frosty glass. :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clownoisseur (264) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2014
2012 vinatge. Pours a dark brown, near black...nice and lively mocha head that settles into fine lacing and a ring around the teku glass. Pretty oily, with decent legs. Aromas of oak are immediately present. Dark chocolate, roasted nuttiness and a slight note of alcohol make themselves known. Taste is loaded with bitter dark chocolates, a mild roasted body coupled with notes of vanilla and oak. A nice bitter finish is accompanied by more oak impressions, along with bitter chocolate...almost pushing coffee notes across my palate. Very nice and smooth, minimal alcohol is noticeable. Great imperial stout...medium-heavy body...lively carbonation. Nice balance.
