Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Pours a rich solid black body beneath a deep tan head that quickly dissolves to leave almost no lacing in its path.

The rich chocolate aroma wafts from the glass mixed with the herbal and woody oak notes. Roasted malts show up after a short time as well with some vanilla notes as the beer warms.

Delicious flavors are abundant with this beer dominated by the sweet chocolate nibs, followed by the herbal oak and roasted malt and topped with a spicy bite to finish.

Full and rich in body, this beer has medium carbonation, a thick, coating mouthfeel, and a pleasant kick from the abv to finish.

Great beer all around and a nice oak aged example in that the oak is complimentary versus being dominant. The flavors and aromas come together very nicely in this beer.

A. Dark, dark brown, nearly black. An aggressive pour yielded a small amber head that retreats to a minimal film. No laces.

S. Chocolate, coffee, neutral oak, dark roasted malts all at noticeable levels. Hints of vanilla. Mild aroma.

T. The taste follows the nose consistently. A noticeable bitterness, not at all sweet. Major notes of coffee, dark malts, neutral oak, and some hops. No booze. A moderately bitter ale.

M. Moderately smooth, moderate carbonation, medium body.

O. Very balanced and consistent. Excellent. Highly recommended.
