(draft) I’ve never been a big fan of oak aged brews, but the oak undertones of this are subtle enough that they’re hardly noticeable. Just enough chocolate and coffee flavor to almost mask the alcohol burn, but not quite. Pretty good. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2006
St Albans (05): Deep black with a brown head. Sweet chocolate aroma, with oaky vanilla notes too. Very smooth soft mouthfeel. Lovely sweet chocolate flavour, with some woody notes and vanilla pods. Molasses and liquorice flavours too. Good stuff, cheers duff! Mads Langtved (2243) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2006
Black appearance. No head. Roasted and slightly smoked. Finsih is mederately hoppy and soft. Great imperial stout. Slighty sweeter than the ordinary Yeti. However I don’t think it’s better than the original. Jayb0 (1197) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Intimidatingly dark with tan head - stares back at you. About as agressively flavored IS as possible while maintaining balance and a surprisong creamy mouth feel. All of the deep darkness you could want. The oak presence is there but I don’t think it adds anything, it may even distract. I won’t know until I try the non-oaked version.
Thanks to holdwine for this one. Holdwine (1228) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Motor oil pour. Big and rich. Oak? maybe, if it helps, great, but it doesn’t assert itself. Toffee, molasses, chocolate are all present in abundance. Piney hops swoop in to declare their presence. Wonderful.

Bottle. Wow. And may I add: Yummy. Brilliant stout. And with the danger of repeating myself: Yummy and wow. Likerighteous (120) - Pflugerville, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Central Mkt. $7.49 22oz. Lots of dark chocolate and coffee bittered to perfection. Quick, fresh palate for such a dense brew. I like that it’s a bit thin. Alcohol is well hidden. A full meal deal. GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2006

"Not sure i can tell the difference between this and the stright yeti. Not much oak flavor or aroma. Apearence was awsome, dark pour with a dark brown head. which laced great. Good solid beer." BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
Expensive but well worth it. Black with a smaller khaki head. Aroma was rubust with licorice, dark chocolate, toasted nuts and a kicking oak. Flavour lives up to the nose, rich, silky with a nice creamy texture dried out nicely with the oak flavouring. A great one for sure.
