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).

ACHops (759) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Growler from Super Deli Mart, poured into a goblet. Pours viscous pitch black with a dark dirt brown head with a slight reddish tint and of medium thickness. Aroma is dark chocolate, charred malt, old oaky wood and a hint of port-like booze. Taste is dark roasty malts, still harsh though tempered a bit by the oak, dark chocolate. A note of vanilla sweetness on the finish. Lingers bitter afterward. Thick, coating mouthfeel. The oak is not nearly as prominent as the Belgian yeast, chocolate, or espresso versions respectively - it allows the natural flavors of Yeti to really shine. Pretty tough without them right beside each other, but I’d rank this just slightly ahead of the espresso, which was just ahead of the chocolate. Hard to go wrong either way, amazing that this beer can take on so many mods so well.

Bottle shared with Jonathan. Dark brown beverage with a small foam that quickly disappears. The aroma of cocoa, vanilla and leather. Dry taste of instant coffee and cocoa.

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

rouhlas (339) - 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.

Kavu (2437) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Small taste on tap @ Stoddard’s. 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.

gkeh (245) - Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2014
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

Pitch-black color, dark brown head. Aroma is chocolate, oak, vanilla. Taste is oak, vanilla, chocolate, liquorice. Aftertaste is just phenomenal, as it stays forever. Full body with medium carbonation.
