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? A respectable 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).ID: 11759 Last updated 15 years ago Added to database 18 years ago

The beer pours a solid translucent dark coca-cola colour with a thin creamy head which lasts a long time, but leaves relatively little lacing. The aroma is oak, coffee, roasted malt, and a hint of molasses. The mouthfeel is full bodied, creamy, with average carbonation. The flavour is toasted oak, coffee, and vanilla. Well hopped in the finish. A very good beer with a lot of wood characters without the alcohol being dominant.

This is a beer that I purchased back in 2008 and cellared. Thought that a cool, rainy day was a good time to open this baby up. It was poured aggressively into a pint glass revealing a black color with a light to medium brown, rocky head which leave some clinging spider web-like lacing. The smell is spellbinding. I know I haven't given many 10's out, but this beer deserves one. Very complex with aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, deeply roasted malt, vanilla, charred wood and a bit of dark fruit. Coffee, roasted malt with a strong oak presence are the dominate flavors with a boozy finish (not a negative to me). The flavor was a slight disappointment after the aromas, but still very flavorful. The aromas and flavors of this beer improve as it warms. Minimal carbonation with a full, rich mouthfeel. Not the first, or the last of my cellaring experiments, but in this case, this was the only bottle that I had so there was nothing to compare it to. I have about 5 more beers which have been cellared and I eventually get to them, it's just the fact that there are too many newer beers out there to try.

I liked this better than the regular Yeti. Not too oaky and balances out the flavor a bit. Heavy chocolate, some coffee, vanilla, etc. Appearance really doesn't get any better. Jet black with a dark mocha colored head. A buddy poured me a glass to sample from his bomber, but this is something I would grab to try again.

Tasting this beer was like sipping on a strong 9.5% espresso! I love the dark black color and the aroma is right out of the coffee house! The oak-aged barrel taste gives the coffee taste a good power house punch on flavor! This has become one of my favorite beers. It's a regular in my inventory and its nice large size bottle makes it a perfect beer for two!

From notes: Impermeable by candlelight. Like smoking a cigar. Mild aroma, milk chocolate, smoke. Milk choclatey, a touch smoky, oaky for sure. Leather smoke lingers. Plenty of resin, runs the gamut of malts. Sticks around like an awkward one-night-stand. Intense, compelling. Fermented leather milk chocolate. Bunny puke bitterness. Sweet, bitter bourbon leather. *I saw a Giraffipede in the lacing. Honest.*

Another huge Yeti. Bronze-black nearly opaque pour with a tight tan head and tons of lacing. Huge roasted malt aroma, dark bitter chocolates, hint of coffee, oak, and big earthy hops in the end. Roasted malts and earthy hops dominate the flavor; rich and nearly heavy, burnt molasses, dark cocoa, slight oak, little vanilla, dry finish, well-hopped, almost overly hopped. Still a flavorful and massive beer though.

On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Pitch black colour, low brown head. Lovely aroma of oak, roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee, hints of leather. Roasty flavour, dark malts, coffee, oak, hints of chocolate and liquorice. Nice bitterness in the finish.

I really like what the oak does for this beer. Adds a nice bit of vanilla to the smell, a great dryness to the mouthfeel, and a mysterious smokey flavor to a strong malt backbone. The appearance of this beer is quite strong as well, dark dark brown with a thick rocky chocolate colored head.

Wow, this poured blacker than motor oil and with a head darker than any other beer I think I've seen, or at least as dark as Deschuttes The Abyss. Aroma is roasted malt with a hug of hops, hints of chocolate and coffee. Very full body, silky smooth going in with a reasonable hop attack aftertaste. The beer is so thick and strong that the hops hardly come off as being too bitter. Nice brown lacing. As the beer warmed I could finally detect some oak flavoring in the aftertaste. Seems to also become more bitter over time. I would have prefered a little more dark fruit flavor, but still an awesome beer.

Followed up a regular Yeti w/ a glass full of the Oak Aged. Very similar to one another with the Oak sporting a more pronounced woody characteristic followed by a fair amount of vanilla. Seemed a little lighter bodied as well with a nice finish. For all the fuss I'd gladly settle for the original over this one.
