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).

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2006
Sampled at the 4th Boulder Strong Ale Fest. Nice beer. Will have to seek out some more for a little quality time. The beer poured an opaque, dark brown-black with an average-sized, creamy, light brown, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma was malty with heavy notes of roasted grain, burned caramel, cookie and moderate notes of molasses; hoppy with moderate notes of herbs, resin and pine; yeasty with a light note of basement; light miscellaneous note of vanilla and a moderate note of oak. The flavor was heavily sweet, heavily bitter with a long, bittersweet finish that built from moderately- to quite heavy. Nice oaky retros. Sexy palate: the body was full, the texture was creamy and the carbonation was soft with a moderately alcoholic finish.

Black color. Aroma of hop, vanilla. Better flavor, full bodied (malt, liquorice, caramel, roasted malts). Tasted side-to-side its definitively better thatthe ordinary Yeti. Excellent.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle warm. Pours dark with a 1 1/2 finger thick tan head. Aroma of coffee, hops, roast, and slight wooden notes. Flavor is smooth, coffee, roast, mild carbonation, and a bitter hoppy finish. Good body, Damn good brew.

mhoster56 (34) - Fleetwood, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours with a thick, syrupy consistancy, and an exceptionaly dark tan head. Upon smelling this wonderful brew, one notes distinct hints of coffee, dark chocolate, and vanilla. The flavor is far superior to nigh all other imperial stouts, with commanding bursts of bittersweet chocolate, french roast coffee, and vanilla extract. The taster will also experience a decent "hoppiness" from this beer. However, as the standard price ranges from nine to eleven dollars per bottle, I might refrain from regualrly purchasing this tremendous creation from Great Divide.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2006
Super dark body. Dark tan, creamy head. Light carbonation. Chewy maltiness, slight hopiness. Chocolate sweet aftertastes. A mally bit of smokiness. Coffee and vanilla flavors whisping around as well.

decaturstevo (6131) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2006
22 oz bomber that Im forced to drink alone. This beer has an aroma that just wont quit. It has an aroma of caramel, coffee, and chocolate. It pours black with a creamy muddy brown head that fades rather quickly. The intitial flavor is sweet with a moderate bitter. It finishes slightly sweet with a big bitter that lasts. This beer was closer to a full body than medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. A really good beer.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - APR 6, 2006
Almost pitch black, nice light brown head. Nice aroma of chocolate, roast, some whiskey, vanilla, wood and others. Medium-full bodied, almost creamy in texture, very smooth. Flavors of roast, bittersweet chocolate elements, some coffee notes, definitely has that oak and whiskey presence that distracts for me. Good hopping, adding dryness and balace. Its ok, still on the fence about the whole oak aged stout thing.

billism (44) - Missouri City, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2006
Nice big-ass head. About looked like the nitrogen trickle down head, while forming. Thick, wonderful Imperial Stout. Not too sweet, not too bitter. Its what Imperial Stouts should be. A bit pricey, but well worth it.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2006 One of my favorites. Big dark head, excellent lacing, and dark, dark, dark. Aroma is of chocolate, oak, and vanilla. There is some hops bitterness, but not too much to overpower the oakiness. This one feels real warm going down. Ive had the non-oak Yeti and its very much different than the oak aged. Drinkability is good if you want to linger over a nice bottle for a looooooong while. I dont think I could drink more than one of these in a seating.

i just wrote a fat ass rating on this. but i wasnt fucking logged in. its black and thick and looks like pure motor oil head is thick. palate is wonderful, creamy and smooth. but thick as hell. flavor starts with oak and then turns to vanilla & chocolate leaves coffee and hops on the palate at the end of its life. i love this shit.
