COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crack open Yeti Imperial Stout’s 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 Yeti’s already intense chocolate, roasted coffee malt flavor and hugely assertive hop profile. Who says you can’t tame a Yeti? 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

The first beer I’ve had from Great Divide, and diffinately not the last. Chocolate, vanilla, toasted oak, coffee. Great stuff.

On tap at Elizabeth station. Pours an almost black with brown head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt, fruity and some chocolate butter notes. Taste is the same with oak notes and roasted malt botterness. Very good.

thepatrickman (1358) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2016
On tap at York River Landing, Maine. This has a lot of Yeti’s profile -- it’s big, dark, and bitter -- but the oak aging definitely adds a drying, tannin-y dimension that makes everything a little crisper and a little more complex.

Bottle at oliver twist, stockholm. Black color, brown head. Aroma has coffee, some oak, roasty notes. Nice roasty body, coffee, oak notes, some bitter note at the end. Pretty nice but liked chocolate version more.

3.4
Turboninja (763) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Medium, slightly bitter aroma with dark chocolate and coffee. Pitch black color with medium beige head. Strong, averagely balanced, organic taste with dry dark fruits, oak with alcoholic twist, slightly bitter coffee and bitter roasted malts. Wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with dry fruits. Medium/strong body with light carbonation. Overall, bit boozy oak, bitter nuances dampen other flavors. Still, vivid and high quality.

Samuel214 (1147) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2016
Flaska från SB. Kolsvart, tjock vätska med krämigt mörkbrunt skum. De härliga tonerna från grund-yetin (mängder av choklad, kaffe, hårt rostade toner, chark, enbärsris) möter lena vaniljtoner och en lätt syrlig ekton. Blandar sig fint i krämig toffee, lite inlagda körsbär och en viss syrlig ton som drar åt grönt äpple. Stor, maffig kropp som samtidigt har tydliga tecken av ekfatslagringen. Jämfört med vanliga Yetin finns här en strävhet, men som inte helt lyckas tämja detta kraftpaket till imperial stout. De kärva tonerna av kaffesump, granskott, aska och de hårt rostade inslagen blandas upp med en lätt syrlighet från eken. Känns lite som en brottning dem emellan som inte helt avgörs - detta är kanske min egentliga invändning. Stor beska i avslutningen. Kvar i munnen efteråt är kaffesump från presskaffe. Trots eklagringen är denna nästan större i sin kärvhet än vanliga Yetin. Svårtämjd.

Great beer, but I prefer the chocolate and espresso versions that were available a few years ago. Nice with the smaller bottle though. Thick and oily, slightly smoky and strong with coffee.
