CHOCOLATE OAK AGED YETI IMPERIAL STOUT is another revered incarnation of our legendary imperial stout. We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. Another great Yeti? Hell yes.

    Pour is jet black with a creamy brown head. Chocolate aroma jumps out of the glass followed by notes of coffee and roasted malt. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Chocolate dominates the taste as well along with hints of vanilla and bitterness. Excellent dessert beer to share with friends or family.

    Pours a absolutely pitch black with a one finger chocolate milk colored head that takes its' sweet assed time. Due to the body of it it is impossable to tell if it is carbonated. Aroma is of dark chocolate with a coffee bitterness. you can also detects the woody aroma of the oak chips in there as well. taste is heavy on the dark chocolate and is extremely creamy. Heavy dark malts and a hint of the oak at the rear. You can easily detect the alcohol in this one as well. Slightly metallic and finishes off that and dry. Very good impy.

    Beer night at Gully’s first beer placed in front of me is a mystery beer and it turned out to be this one…..Shockingly unclimatic sentence. Brew appears to be a black hole of color with a thick brown cap floating on top some sticky roapy lacing is left behind on every sip. Nam Phan and Lenard Garcia are killing each other in the ring!!!! So many punches so little time. Aroma of sweet ash, apple, black pepper, hints of tabasco (this might be my mind playing tricks on me since I know there cyan pepper in her). Don’t know what to think of this aroma I like it, it’s interesting, but it’s not wowing me. Heat is building slowly in my stomach with each passing sip its compounding but never to a drastic level………….mmmmmm hot sauce and beer together at last WHO IN THE HELL CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA?!?!? I wish this felt thicker. Taste is intense, tons of ash, weird coffee (I can’t explain what this means), Backers chocolate, roasted everything, and the hidden but noticeable cyan pepper. Didn’t really get much oak out of this but it is there. I like this beer but I don’t love it.

    Dark blackness on pour. Big deep tan, frothy textured head rises robustly above. There's some hang time on this one. It settles ibto a thick ringlet and light dusting of film. The nost is bold cocoa and nutty oak. The taste is more chocolate. Bitter and roasty. Thick, sleek texture. Really the kind of beer I admire most!

    Poured wonderfully! Dark brown head, took a long time to dissapate. Still lingering on the top of thick black beer after ten minutes. Smell is all kinds of powdered cocoa, and after the first couple gulps I can feel the same feeling when dark chocolate coats my teeth. Mouthfeel is both thin and yet thick. It is watery but not at all. I want to reconcile that statement: It has no finish. Its really full and thick in the mouth, but is just is gone, except for excessive salivation afterwards. Mild acrid coffee. I love it and yet I dont. Its highly gulpable, yet I wouldnt consider it drinkable. Its quite bitter, which I like yet I dont love. I think I just want to love it, it looks sooo wicked. The aroma and flavour is quite uncomplex, but it changes in my mouth all the time. A little bit of rotten honey if such a thing exists on the nose. K fine, its good, but I dont love. Molasses in the end. Less than the sum of its parts

    This was a very thin stout in my opinion. Weak on colour, weak on texture, and weak on flavour. Fails miserable when compared to the original Yeti. Next time I'll pass.

    Smells sweet, malty, chocolaty, and a bit nutty. Very deep brown with a thick frothy chocolate colored head. Flavor is quite a bit more roasty than I would have expected, only slightly chocolate. Predominately roasted barley, very big malt flavor, thick mouthfeel, very good stout. If I hadn't read the label I would characterize this as an Impy with a strong oak backbone, the chocolate is really that light.

    Draught@SBWF2009. Deep ambery brown colour, small brown head. Aroma is chocolate, mild notes of wood as well as some slight roasted notes and coffee as well. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, alcohol and mildly burnt notes. Quite syrupy notes as well.

    WOW! This is a big huge chewy stout. Pours dark black with a large tan head. Aroma is chocolate. Mouthfeel is bitter chocolate. Flavor is evident chocolate with a bit of an edge. I LOVE it.

    Pours black with remarkably thick, dense head. Aroma boasts roasty coffee, wood, chocolate--everything you would expect but it's somehow better. Flavor is beyond rich with intense dark flavors mimicking the aroma. Interesting licorice topnotes, subtle but cool. Mouthfeel is thick, creamy, perfectly carbonated, with gentle warming affect. I've always loved the oak aged yeti, but this is even better. The chocolate flavor tones down the woodiness to the perfect level!
