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).

This is, hands down, my favorite Imperial Stout...it’s all there...great body, great hops, lots of complex flavors including dates, figs, raisins, a wonderful citric underpinning of mandarin orange and grapefruit, vanilla, oak, and even a dash of sherry, with all the flavors coming through harmoniously...simply, a beautiful Imperial Stout.

Pours black, no froth with ample residual effers. Smells like granite and espresso. Full throtle on the nectar. Flavors of roasted espresso, sweet cocoa, tar, tobacco, resin, and steak. I could actually taste candybar chocolate, just not as sweet. A defined vanilla essence shows itself on the finish. The finish itself is a might long with a slightly resinated bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden. Overall; a complex and decadent brew that is well ballanced. I highly recommend this to all the Imperial Stout lovers.

Stefano (1874) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2006 Motor oil black color with a gorgeous and rocky caramel head. Aroma is roasty malt, barrel flavors, most noteably vanilla. The taste is so smooth, not the least bit bitter. The vanilla, chocolate and coffee work great together. I really love this beer.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2008 Flaske. På denne min anden bryllupsdag holdt vi traditionen fra den første ved hævd ved at drikke en af disse fantastiske øl. Tyk sort med diskret brunt skum. En anelse brændthed i duften. Smagen perfekt balanceret imellem brændthed bitterhed og sødhed fra både malt og træ, i form af vanilie.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 Fantastic. Creamy, roasted chocolate flavour. IMHO much better than Stones 08 IRS. The best.

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours pitch black with a light brown creamy/frothy head. The head sticks around for the whole beer leaving really good lacing. The aroma is of heavy roasted malts along with a oakiness, there are also hints of vanilla. Taking a drink the first thing that hits you is the heavy roasted malts, followed by the oak, then a bitterness that sticks with you for a while. The body is full with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall I liked this alot, the oak was not to strong, but enough to round it out.

Love this beer. Nice dark, deep brown/black color. Finishes with a taste of coffee. Really complex flavor (oak/coffee is what I taste the most). Nice thick head. Woody aroma.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 I could not think of a single way to improve this. Malty carmelized yumminess over a foundation of molasses coffee bittersweet chocolate, you mild oak spicy note to top it all off. a dance of complex flavors and completely flawless. On tap @ the Tap House Grill in Seattle Although I wasn’t as impressed (maybe a 4.3) with it in a bottle.
