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).

KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a very thick pitch black with an average sized (1-2 finger) chocolate brown creamy head that had really good retention, reducing to a moderate sized foam cap with a large foamy collar thus producing excellent streaky lacing. The aroma was of a dark roasted malt, a resin hop and a leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, molasses, vanilla, licorice, a bit of oak and a mild alcohol tinge. The taste was a tiny bit sweet and very malty with hints of licorice, dark chocolate and molasses from the onset and then proceeded to become a nice bitter hoppy with a big note of coffee and hints of vanilla and oak with a strong alcohol finish. The flavor hung around for a very long time with the coffee flavor taking hold as the taste of alcohol faded. Mouthfeel was full and a bit chewy in body with a texture that was smooth, creamy and a tad oily, while having a nice strong lively carbonation. Overall a brew that has everything balanced so well that it just slides down the throat leaving you wanting more...

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.

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

A great oatmeal stout. I can hardly wait for my next bottle to fill a tall and frosty glass. :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
