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).

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.

Bottle. Well, it looks like a regular yeti. Its got a silly strong aroma - pear vanilla yankee candle factory wonka-eque stout perfume. Intense flavor - vanilla, fruits, tons of cream, chewy palate. Late in the finish you find some coffee - still much more subdued and complex than yeti - and far, far superior to the un-oaked Yeti.

Roasted malt all over the place. Chocolate and coffee are huge. Very very bitter. Not as smooth as I expected with the oak. Actually a bit thin flavored. Creamy, but slightly thin mouthfeel. Some oak in the back. Pine at times. Smooth vanilla. No alcohol at all. The more I drink, the smoother it gets. That thinness is being filled in as well. The beer just keeps growing on me.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2006
A very nice sipping beer. Shame that no one else wanted to sip it, b/c I ended up finishing the whole bomber in a bit of a hurry b/c everyone wanted to go to bed and I didnt want to leave it until morning. Incredibly, an oaked beer that isnt overdone. Some dark bitter choclate melds well with medium oily vanilla flavors and almost, maybe, some nutmeg. Fading into coffee and strong, assertive roastiness. Almost no licorice or prune flavors are another plus. Nice body, heavy yet mellow alcohol presence.

mddawso (89) - Normal, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 Pours a thick dark black with a dark tan head. Absolutely no light got through, an absolutely gorgeous beer. The taste was unique of anything I had ever had before. There was everything you could expect in a stout with the coffee and chocolate, but added the taste of oak. It really is indescribable. This is an asolutely incredible stout. Definitly worthy of the top 50. I would even put it on the top ten. And 9.5% alc? I couldnt taste it but dont ask me to walk the line/

The bottle poured a viscous black beverage so black that the most intense light can not begin to pierce it. There was a small, tan, creamy head that lasted throughout and left wonderful lacing on the glass. Just like its Great Divide cousin, the head resembled the froth on top of a perfectly made cup of espresso. The aromas were beautifully complex with the hop character coming out on top giving it an almost sherry-like quality. Chocolate and coffee were plainly noticeable as well. The body was very full with soft carbonation and a syrup like smooth texture. The oak aging has smoothed out the rough edges and can just be made out in the flavor which started off moderately sweet (dried plums?) and slowly changed character during the long finish to a light bitterness (coffee and bitter-sweet chocolate) accompanied by a slight alcohol warmth.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 21, 2006
[bottle] Pours a dark ruby/brown color- nearly black. Aroma is excellent- fruity sweetness and definitely oak. Favors are exceptionally smooth. Chocolate, mild roasted coffee, dark fruits like plum and fig. Finishes long and smooth, with oak and hops remaining. An excellent brew that definitely lives up to the hype.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Dark brown,almost black appearance with a little bit of a medium brown head at first. A heavy malt-chocolate aroma is quite strong. A suprisingly smooth and sweet taste for an Imperial Stout. Velvety texture that did not disappoint. Not bad at all.

Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2006
A mostly lasting large creamy brown head tops up a pitch opaque black body. particles. bubbles. Aroma presents malt being heavy roasted /nutty/burnt/cacao while hops are moderate grapefruit / orange ... Yeast character is light Also, there are evident evocations of oak aging... vanilla, bourbon, smoke. Initial flavor is heavily chocolated/coffee/burnt malt while development present evident hop bitterness. Very pleasant. Finish is long . full body... creamy texture... Soft carbonation...

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2006 I must admit that I am still recovering from a sore throat and a bad cough as i am tasting this brew so my rating may be affected by my sore palate. Overall I felt this was a little too bitter, but i guess thats what can be expected from a imp. stout aged in oak. flavor is roasted malts, some coffee, and a semi-sweet (bitter) chocolate with a strong bite of hops at the end. A nice imperial, but not my favorite. Like i said, a little too bitter for my liking.
