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).

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Bottle from Surdyks in Minneapolis. I waited for months, and really wanted this to be my favorite beer ever. I love the way the regular Yeti overpowers yet seduces me with everything that is right and fitting for a testosterone-driven dark stout. The oaked version, however, I reluctantly must report was a bit sweet, a bit on the artificial-tasting vanilla flavor, and a shade buttery on the palate. With the gorgeous pour and the hospitalizingly rich body, It is still a great brew, and the abv and hop power it hides so well (yet celbrates) is well worth hoisting a glass. Well done, but Im stocking my cellar with the regular Yeti.

Bottle 650ml. Black with small brown head. Chocolate and small hint of sweet vanilla in aroma. There is also bitter chocolate in taste with a little bit wooden finish and small note of alocohol. Beer is smooth even though medium bitterness, wooden and small sweetness in aftertaste.

drjoeng (1103) - SINGAPORE - APR 14, 2017
9.5%ABV. Imperial stout. Poured out black and oily. 40SRM. Nose has plums and sweet overripe stone fruit. Some medicinal heft to it, liniment and Chinese medicine. Nose also has nice barley bread aroma. Mouthfeel is syrupy and well balanced with carbonation. Palate is deeply roasted malt with burnt grain and burnt toast. Charcoal, espresso roast, burnt twigs, charred wood, oak, burnt acorns, slightly. Very brief stone fruit body with sweet and light fruitiness. Finish is bitter, alcoholic and lingering. Wood in the final bit of the palate. Overall a very endearing imperial stout despite the very rough edges. Goes on Favorites List!

ttoadee (1413) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2017
Black pour, solid mocha head. Nose is chocolate, carmel and oak. Bittersweet. Middle is fudge, blackened malt, velvety caramel, currants, and oak. Finish brings a woody hop bitterness into the mix to bring balance. Wow.

Gurthnar (5650) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2017
UPDATED: APR 5, 2017 Bottle thanks to MisoW. Slightly vegetal grassy character impairing both aroma and flavour. Other than that there is lots of malty complexity, chocolate, toffee, roast, coffee. It is very good, but the vegetal off note removes it dimensions from where it could be otherwise.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
tfredvik (1884) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2017
Pours a viscous, opaque, pitch black body with a large, creamy, dark brown, very long-lived head that laces the glass well. Amazing and strong aroma of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, dark caramel, dark roasted malt, wood and vanilla. Strong flavour of chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malt, dark caramel, salty liquorice, with wood in the back. A bit boozy and unfortunately some vague metallic hints in the finish, but these rough notes do not ruin the beer at all. Moderate sweet taste with a long-lasting rather heavy bitter finish. Full body, oily to creamy texture, soft carbonation. A brilliant brew!
[35.5 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Storo, Oslo]

0.66l bottle thanks to Lore. Pitch black body with a light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, pine, cinnamon and a bit of oak. Taste of chocolate, coffee, cocoa, caramel and grapefruit. Quite citrusy RIS with a well hidden alcohol. Great beer.
