COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crack open Yeti Imperial Stouts 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 Yetis already intense chocolate, roasted coffee malt flavor and hugely assertive hop profile. Who says you cant tame a Yeti? 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

schwaiger (90) - Laramie, Wyoming, USA - MAY 23, 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.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Full blown oak and whiskey aroma. Flavor had tons of scotch type notes. Vanilla, oak with chocolate and alcohol. Im not a fan of whiskey, so I was put off by this one a little. But I can appreciate the smooth quality it gave this beer.

bigbish (711) - California, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Beer look slike a black hole in a glass. I think the room just got darker... A 1/2 tan head sits atop the beer. The aroma is very faint but has notes of coffee, chocolate, and a slightly sweet roastiness. Slightly thinner than I would expect but not bad at all. Ill be able to finish the bomber, no problem. The taste is similar to the aroma, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, oak, and some hops. I would prefer a bit more oak, but thats just me. It says its 75 IBUs but it doesnt seem overly hoppy. I think this is a very well balance Imp Stout.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Bottle w/ vanilla, oak, and chocolate in the flavor. Meek aroma matched by watered-down finish. A good imperial stout, but not a great imperial stout. Needs more coffee and a fuller body. The oak may be contributing to the apparent watery finish.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2006 22 oz bottle. Pours black with a nice frothy tan head. Nice aroma of dark chocolate, roasted coffee. Was a bit thinner than I expected. Heavy bodied with a bitter finish. Not as good as Old Rastutin or Samuel Smiths but still an overall good beer.

Wow! The rating got me to try it. It exceeded my imagination. Rich, silky, brown foam; Opaque, black, complex, rich, but well balanced.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2006 22 oz bottle


This has been sitting in my cellar for about five months now, which means it was time to crack it open. Scents of smoked ham, cocoa powder, cherries, lightly roasted coffee lifted from the deep black body. A nice combination of creamy bourbon, subdued hops, vanilla and cherries yielded to chocolate and expresso roast. Lastly, just before it finally fades away there was a mixture of raisins, plums and holly. The bitterness was well balanced along with some carbonation. Overall, this is one of the better values out there - it almost ranks as highly as Old Raspution.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 10, 2006
Sampled from bottle. This stout pours blackened-brown with a thick tan head and frothy lacing. Very inviting. Aroma is cocoa, dark fresh fruit and strong, bright floral notes. The flavor is reminiscent of the aroma. Slightly bitter and spicy. Full-bodied and smooth. Some alcohol present and not very woody. A must try.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2006
From a 22oz. brown bomber bottle with a blurb along the left side of label, no bottled/freshness date, purchased at the start of winter 2005. Made a good appearance, poured an deep, impenetrable blackish brown with a fluffy. rocky tan head that settled into a thin foamy, bubbly lacing, moderate carbonation. Had a oaky vanilla and chocolate/coffee malt nose with whiffs of sweet fruitiness and alcohol in the background. A malty crisp, slick, creamy smooth full bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Charcoal and roasted chocolate malty taste at first, an oakish silky vanilla, a sweet citric fruitiness towards the end with a little roasted graininess and dryish, sweet chocolate roasted malty and yeasty finish. A very tasty and balanced stout from Great Divide, a must try.
