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).

Bomber bottled Sept 18, 2012 poured into a snifter. Jet black in color with a dark tan 1 finger head with decent retention. The aroma was of roasted malt and chocolate on the front. As it warmed up I noticed more ester, oak and booze. Flavor of dark roasted coffee, caramel, oak and vanilla with a bitter chocolate finish and a touch of an alcohol bite. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation although fairly smooth. Overall another tasty version of the Yeti, I’ve enjoyed them all so far.

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 (184) - 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.

katrinaez (399) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2015
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
