UPDATED: SEP 29, 2006 Amazing. One of the best beers I’ve ever had. Complex aroma with caramel, prunes, and the oak coming through nicely. Nice dark body with a light brown head. Hops and malt balanced nicely. Flavor is complex as any, prunes, vanilla, caramel coming through most, with a mild alcoholic finish. Thick creamy body. I have no complaints about this beer, and I must give it an almost perfect score. Grab a bottle of this if you can, it is worth your money. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 29, 2006
Thanks to Whaleman for passing this one onto me to try out. Pours a dark dark brown with a dark bubbly tan head that went away fairly quickly. Aroma of vanilla, oak, chocolate, cherry, caramel, toffee, roasted malts. Flavor of cocoa, coffee, caramel, vanilla, some of the oak. The hop presence was toned down when tasted side by side with the regular Yeti, but was still there just not as bitter. Smooth and creamy palate. The oak aging did well for this one. tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2006

Tyk, sort og cremet.
Smag humlet, fyldig, brændt.
Flot brunt skum
Lavt niveau af kulsyre.
Varm bitter eftersmag.
Ikke nær så kraftig som den alm. Yeti. BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Poured pitch black with a dark coca head. Lacing superb like hair on a yeti’s back, no light penetrates the depths of it’s layer. Opens up to a malty sort of black coffee and roasted wood. Taste defines the vanilla from the oak very well, and balances between roasted black french coffee and chocolate malts. Mild bitter hops are not overwhelming, and this brew carries a rather smooth, creamy quality in there. Alchohol makes its way back and forth, but never intrusive. Has a mild salty flavour too. damn good! Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Bottle Pours a thick black with a creamy lasting brown red head. The head laces very well and lasts for a while. Has a good aroma of carmel, hops and strong alcohol. Has a medium to full body with a creamy thick texture. Produces a great mouthfeel. Has a lively carbination. The oak aging produces a nice sherry taste. Has a bold flavor and a robust finish. This one is very good, I like it a lot.

Wow. I love this beer. If you’ve had the standard Yeti before, then you know what to expect. Dark chocolate malt flavors with dark fruits like raisons and figs. The bonus with this beer is that it’s been oak aged so you get that nice oak, vanilla like flavor pulling through nicely. The oak aging really does improve this beer. Nice and creamy mouth-feel, an imperial stout that is perfect in just about every way. I really wanted to give this a perfect score, but I just couldn’t... it’s hard to achieve "perfect" status, but this is as close as i’ve ever had. I highly recommend this beer to anyone, especially you stout guzzlers. This can be found on tap at Old Chicago in Colorado. henrik (48) - Århus, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2006
Pitch black with a good dark head. Aroma of oak, hops an a hint of soy sauce. The flavour brings us almost all the way around: It’s bitter, sweet, salty and slightly sour -- in a wonderfull balance. The carbonation is soft, it has a long finish and a full body. pintocb (654) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Very black and oily. Brownish red head that stays around for a bit. Great smoky malt and some hops in the nose. The mouthfeel is great. Wonderful beer. Furseth (2165) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2006

Bomber. Poured very black with a large, mostly lasting brown head with excellent lacing. Big mellow roastiness with vanilla, chocolate, soy sauce, and toffee. More notes of Turkish coffee, sweetened condensed milk, rye bread, and strawberry preserves. Flavors of sweet chocolate, soy sauce, and vanilla. Mouth warming with a creamy, ultra smooth full body with some alcohol burn. A long bittersweet alcoholic finish. A big, domineering stout.
