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).

Bottle: This one is obviously similar to the Yeti, but adds a distinctive flavor with the oak. Personally, I liked the the regular Yeti better, but that doesnt mean this one isnt good. Its great. Dark black with a psuedo-hoppy aroma (I assume that is the oak tricking the nose). Nice feel, thick enough to feel like an imperial stout, but not too thick where it is overdone. Thanks Indiana_Red.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 Pours dark with a yellowish head. Sweet with aromas of oak, liquirish and vanilla. Full hoppy aroma. Long bitter finish. Extremely heavy bodied. So heavy bodied and full of taste that you need to take a breather betwen sips. Re(blind)rated at sk8vikings: 8-4-8-3-18

Black color with no head. Taste and aroma are both a solidly bitter oak with a good malt base. No coffee, chocolate, or vanilla flavors. Hmmm... Ive got quite a few more bottles to try; hopefully I just had a slightly boring one.

Black with medium brown head, and some nice lacing. You can smell the oak, no doubt. Also some roasted malt, chocolate, and light fragrant hops. Chewy with dark roasted coffee, chocolate, and molasses. Assertive hop character of peppery spice and grapefruit and a nicely lingering dryness. Im getting more of this!

normal imperial appearance (a near black body with small reddish brown head)....aroma was a tad dissapointing for an imperial (some oak hints, vanilla, chocolate, and coffee)...but WOW!!!, flavor made up for the such shortcomings....oak, vanilla, roasted coffee and chocolate, nuts, bourbon, and a nice floral hop aftertaste....perfect creamy palate!! thank you to Silphium for this beer; i am going to get more

kramer (6576) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2005
22 oz bottle, via trade w/ Dickinsonbeer. Pours pitch black with a firm 1 inch brown head that had good retention. Lots of vanilla, oak, and roasted notes, definate hop presence, and moderate alcohol vapors. A nicely balanced tripod of a beer with roast, hops, and oak all playing an equal part. Kind of makes me imagine that this is what Storm King would taste like if it was barrel aged. Alot of espresso and chocolate in the finish with a mild alcoholic warmth. Very smooth and soft on the palate, medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Very nicely done overall, no one aspect of this beer dominates the flavor.

Bottled on 10-X0-05.Aromas of oak vanilla,choco-coffee,piney hops.I was looking forward to the hops in this one but they are just too pungent(chinook)which I might not be in the mood for right now(this is very fresh too so some aging is probly needed).Really nice OA Imperial Stout.Purchased at Ronnies in Forest Hill,MD.This gets much better as it warms and breaths.Actually has some Cabenet Sauv aromas as well between the oak,hops and chocolate.Very good.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Big woody and licorice aroma, piney hops and bready chocolate highlights; hearty and roasty maltiness with intense chocolate followed by a resinous grapefruit bitterness and a hint of vanilla; slick palate with some astringency; this seems a little unrefined and maybe could use some more aging, and doesnt seem to stand up to some of the other impy stouts that are held in such high regard; nonetheless, an outstanding #500th rating for me.

An excellent choice. A little sour, but very heavy. This is the thickest beer I have ever consumed. One of my top-5 beers ever

Bottle (courtesy Duff) at St Albans Beer Festival, October 2005. This is a big, powerful fellow, no doubt. Pitch black, with a huge brown head. Deep, rich, burnt malt aroma. No coffee or chocolate to speak of, although some creamy chocolate notes develop on the palate. And, yes, I do get the oak. Soft vanilla smoothes out the chunky malt. Velvety feel, alcohol well integrated. Quite refined. Not a term I use much in relation to American beers, but it fits the bill here. Im often a bit dubious about the value of oak aging, but it certainly does the trick on this one.
