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 dont believe in absolute perfection, but this beer come close. It has a great chocolate flavor with oaky accents. Easily the best imperial stout i have ever had!

JBPortland (1116) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 27, 2015
22oz bottle pours oily black brown with small dark head. Nose is big brownie batter, chocolate, roast, subtle vanilla, dark fruit and char. Taste is similar with tons of fudgey brownie, chocolate, roast, with light vanilla, syrupy in a good way. Finishes moderately sweet with big roasty brownie, chocolate sauce, cake, vanilla. Awesome.

22 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. Bottled 09/18/2012. The pour is a viscous oily black with a medium brown head and some great lace. The aroma is great. Lots of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, and oak. Licorice comes through on the back end pretty strong and brings a good bitterness to the table. The flavor is very roasty. The malts are smashing you right in the face. The chocolate is much more reserved. The oak isn't there. The bitter licorice comes through on the back end for a little change of pace. The mouth feel is thinner than I want it to be. The carbonation is spot on, but it's just a touch thin. The aftertaste is roasty licorice and a little bitter. I love it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with koleminer20. 2012 vintage. Aroma is roasted malt, licorice, milk chocolate. Appearance is black, light brown head. Taste is robust, lots of roasted malt, coffee bitterness, not much on the oak, very robust. Mouthfeel is thin, great carbonation and it hangs around. Overall, it?s pretty impressive.

Väldigt komplex och massiv. Chokladsmak med viss besk eftersmak. Fin med en bit mörk choklad, minst 70%.

Jur (449) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle @ home. Thick, jet black pour, cinnamon head. Dark choc nose. Huge flavour; caffé, liquorice, dark chocolate, dry bitter woody finish. Aged well. Lots of wood makes it a bit one dimensional later on, overpowers a bit perhaps. Still glorious.

Old rating....delicious like most yetis. This one has very soft oak and vanilla presence over the giant chocobooze monster. Big mouthfeel, appropriate for this beast.

Very mild but good aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, and a hint of sweetness. The mouthfeel is just slightly dried by the aging to me. I'm not sure if this blended to taste or not but they've definitely pleasing to me. The finish is nice and dry, leaving you to get yourself into trouble with this imperial stout.

bartzluke (218) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 15, 2015
(Bottled Sep 29, 2014; drank Apr 15, 2015) 12 oz pour from a room temp bomber into a Spiegelau stout glass. Beautiful pour. Black as chocolate syrup and about as opaque. Huge, powerful, deep-brown head. Lasting with a bunch of lacing. Nose is layered-- oak, vanilla, chocolate. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Carbonation not too notable, probably due to how thick the beer is. Taste is amazing. Lots of layers: starts with caramel sweetness and chocolate, moves to oat and oak, then finishes with a scotchy bite. Alcohol taste not too strong, surprisingly. Such a good beer.

High quality hitter. Deep thick rich color. Could dye your hair with it. Heavy mouth feel velvety and sticks for a long time. Oak is light but Imperial is kicking you. Bottle
