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).

Murrow (69) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottled. Pours black with creamy light brown head that sticks around. Mellow aroma of cherry and dark chocolate. Flavor is mild and subtle, with opening hints of fruit and smoke, becoming richer and earthier, with flavors of toasted bread and a pleasant roast malt bitterness. Robust finish of coffee and tobacco. Extremely rich mouthfeel, full bodied. Quite a mellow brew for its size, but it really shines in some unexpected ways.

From a bottle shared with sonnycheeba. Pours very dark black/brown with a fizzy tan head. Smells like alcohol, woody, earthy, light chocolate. Tastes like alcohol, roasted malt, light coffee, light chocolate, nutty.

Poured from dmac’s sixtel. Pours black with a small creamy mocha colored head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, oak, and booze. Taste of black malts, burnt toast, coffee, leather, oak, and some alcohol burn in the finish.

Big huge aroma, Vanilla and roast and oak. Flavor from this jet black beer is sharp roast the the esters and dried fruit and anise pop, the oak rounds this out oh so nicely

Sublirony (15) - SINGAPORE - AUG 15, 2014
Pours very dark--opaque black with purple sheen at the rim. Not much, but more than sufficient head that recedes quickly but persists. Cocoa, vanilla, burnt toast on the generous nose. Taste is full-on: more cocoa and vanilla with dark-roast coffee; thick texture that fills the mouth, yet not heavy. This ain’t no thin excuse for an imperial stout! Instead, despite the huge size it’s well-balanced beer; I’d even say elegant. Long, long, long and very bitter finish. A delight.

poech73 (197) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2014
Thanks hackobock for IP Trade. Magnifique Double stout mûri en fût de chêne dominé par ses arômes alcooliques et boisés. Le nez dégage des fortes senteurs de wisky, de malts grillés, de mélasse, de boisé et de houblons citronnés piquant les narines. En bouche, la gorgée, bien dense et douce, presque sans pétillance, est d’abord dominée par des saveurs liquoreuses de café fort, de mélasse avec un arrière goût de wisky accompagné d’une sensation vanillée due à alcool et au bois, et d’arômes de fruit des bois surets (mûres, mirtylles). La finale est sympa: amertume franche et sèche surtout sur la langue. Le palais reste avec les saveurs arômatiques. Ce qui est sensationnelle c’est que je n’ai aucune lourdeur ni sur l’estomac ni dans la bouche; ce qui m’indique une très bonne bière. Dommage ces effluves alcooliques qui masquent un peu le profil aromatique de la bière.

Cool_Bond (1439) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2014
Incredibly heavy taste of coffee, dark chocolate and soy. The scent is also really good. A heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Close to perfect beer! Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Veeks (56) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Mine wasn’t oak aged but burnt oats balance out quite a bit of hops for this dry stout with a hint of booziness - very pleasurable on an unseasonably cool 4th of July.

Tstamba (319) - Maryland, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Bomber to a pint. Opaque black fluid with thin tan head and ample lacing. Big bold coffee notes highlighted with dark chocolate and vanilla sweetness. Flavor is complex, smooth, creamy, well balanced, yet dark and brooding. A truly world class Imperial Stout!
