Pours an impenetrable black with a nice espresso 1 finger head on top with good retention and beautiful lacing going down the sides. Smell is of burnt malt, chocolate, and oak. A good amount of dark malts, chocolate, oak, and some hop bitterness as well. Some coffee and sweetness. Creamy nice mouthfeel and very drinkable overall.

2011 vintage. After a bit of aging, the oak is just as prominent in the nose, but less prominent on the taste buds where it melds beautifully with the big Yeti base. Just a bit of woodiness on the aftertaste remains. It's a tasty variant for sure, but I'm just not sure that it beats the base beer.

Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout
9.5% Alc.
22oz. Bomber

Appearance= Wow. Pours motor oil black with a sick looking head. Very brown head, good retention. Max 1 finger head after a vigorous pour into my Danville Halloween festival snifter. Black...

Smell=Immediately smell the Oak. Coffee.

Taste= Oak, coffee, licorice, maybe a lil' butterscotch on the aftertaste. Wow. really good

Mouthfeel=Thick goodness...leaves a nice coating

Drinkability= @ this Abv. it's not highly drinkable. However, with the appearance, smell and taste how could you not keep quaffing it? I'm shit faced and loving it. What a brew.

Dark opaque black color. Nice one finger dark brown head. I love the color of the head on this beer. Lots of spotty lacing

Sweet roasted malts on the nose. Espresso and dry cocoa with some salt water. Hints of vanilla in the finish as well as alcohol.

The taste is full of bitter sweet cocoa and roasted sweet malts. Deep espresso flavors and a nice bitter hop finish. The oak is evident in the finish and seems to smooth out some of the sweetness that Yeti usually has. You can really notice the vanilla in the oak in the background. The oak flavors help balance out some of the sweetness as well.

Very full bodied. Goes down very smooth, but you'll want to sip this one to really appreciate all of the complexities. Quite drinkable, a real treat in the evening to sip and relax with. The oak notes in the finish really add a layer of sophistication to this already amazing brew.
