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).

Michbeerlover (146) - - OCT 29, 2012
I must have gotten a bad bottle? To me it is like drinking liquid dust. Extremely dry. To a point where I have drink some water just to get rid of the dry, dusty pallet. Almost like drinking caulk. I prefer sweeter, smoother stouts. I will try the rest of the bottle tomorrow. Still think the bottle is bad because drinking this is not enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Turboninja (588) - 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.

Dahlstrom (345) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2016

TASTE: very sweet, long and moderately bitter aftertaste. Well hidden alcohol. MOUTH: full body, with a oily texture.

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.

Mesjasz (1154) - Lodz, POLAND - NOV 26, 2016
Nalewa się z cudowną brązową pianą, aż żal było nalewać całe po rant. Aromat mlecznej czekolady waniliowej, nutka espresso. Intensywnie i apetycznie. Pierwszy łyk i już wiadomo, że będzie fajnie. Spore ciało, bardzo gładka faktura, przechodzi po ustach niczym aksamit. Niestety posmaku wyskakuje dosyć spora goryczka. Słodycz jest, ale na początku. W smaku nadal fajnie waniliowo i czekoladowo, ale też wchodzi paloność i więcej kawy. Solidna rzecz, niestety goryczka psuje efekt, sprawiając że piwo jest dosyć ostre. Lekko wychodzi alkohol, ale nie jest on w złym stylu.

EerieDrinks (22) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2016 3 finger frothy tan coloured head, as beautiful as it?s little brother. Dissipates quickly. Pitch black beer. Aroma is seriously like chocolate and lemon ice cream with hints of a ’dark’ and deep aroma which I guess is the oak aroma. The citrus becomes more and more apparent as it warms up.Taste is actually pretty citric upfront, instantly followed by creamy chocolate mousse-like flavor, along with sweet vanilla. Slightly vinous. Nice, warming alcohol kick at the back. Coffee bitterness reveals itself as it warms up. This is equally thick as the regular Yeti but sticks to the palate much better. Overall, I don?t think I can choose between the two but if I have to choose, this is slightly better.Top notch stout.

Pitch black with a creamy brown head. Aroma is... wow!! Chocolate, espresso, vanilla and oak. Taste is strong on the vanilla, but roasted malt and chocolate are there. Full body, low carbonation and wood finish. Slightly bitter at the end. Great beer!!

Beautiful sour beer. I really like this. I'm also half kicked in the ass. But, with that said, it has a nice sour, candy sour. I dig it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gluepot (500) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2016
A deep frothy tan head on a near black body. A dense aroma features wood, chocolate, vanilla and mild coffee. The Oak chips manifest themselves in a damp woodiness and a deeper oak taste. Earthy and citrus hops, sweet chocolate, coffee, crème brule, toffee and dark berries create a deep and complex taste profile. This is an IS edging towards an imperial black IPA. The blend is rich, sweet but bitter at the same time. A dense and slightly sticky texture are also assets.
