color is an opaque,deep brown, pours a half finger of dark brown head. Aroma is nice, coffee, chocolate, and interestingly some hoppy pine as well. Taste is bitter espresso and cocoa upfront,followed by a grainy, malty taste, then an earthy, piney bite. Texture of the beer is quite thin, with pretty high carbonation. overall i was quite underwhelmed, for an oak aged stout i found that this beer lacked balance, the hoppy flavor was not welcome in an imperial stout and did not compliment the rich, malt flavors in my opinion. some sweetness would have gone a long way.

L (4.5) – This beer looks and acts much like it’s non-oak brother. Real nice deep color. Nice bit of head on top.

S (4.25) – You get a bit of the oak smell right off the bat, and then the normal stout smells. Very malty, and a little coffee smell.

T (4.5) – This tastes like old aged Yeti (which it is). Keep in mind that oak aged =/= bourbon barrel aged. So you get the nice oak/wood tastes, but still get to taste the beer itself. I don’t get as much of the boozy taste as regular Yeti, but some.

F (4.25) – Very good mouthfeel. Carbed appropriately and smooth to drink. Lovely.

O (4.25) – I was (and am) a big fan of Yeti. So I thought that the Oak-Aged would be a good option. And it is. I might take a regular Yeti over this one many times, but I’m not sure why. They’re both solid. They should both be in your cellar at all times.

L: Pours absolutely tar black. Thick, red-brown head that tastes creamy and resembles the foam atop a French press of coffee.

S: Hops! How weird for a stout to smell so much like an IPA. The intense hop presence appears to be from the original, pre-aged Yeti.

T: A hoppy taste as well! Oak is present, for sure as is the fruity bite of an IPA. This sounds bad, but it tastes like a yeti - dark, rich, robust, and bitter.

F: Chews like fluffy clouds with mass. Rounded edges.

O: It's a stout with attitude for sure. Your mouth feels like it does after drinking an IPA. A little tacky, but delicious. It's a very, very unique stout that takes the ale aspect to 11.

A very solid Imperial Stout. Nothing outstanding about it, but a very good Imperial Stout that will not disappoint. Strong coffee flavor.
