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.

A - Jet black with dark brown head. ~1.5" when poured aggressive.

S - Lots of wood, chocolate, vanilla, alcohol

T - Oak, bitter chocolate, alcohol, and slight pepper finish.

O - It's a good version of the YETI, but some of the oak/chocolate flavors are a little harsh and the alcohol / pepper finish is a bit hot/overpowering. If I get this one again I'm going to age it longer to see if it mellows. Prost!

Good, oak-y taste and mouthfeel - dry, but could benefit from more thickness.

Flavor lacks depth - lots of bourbon and some oak - but no real chocolate flavors. Roast quality also lacks depth. Good bitterness on the finish with some nice sweetness

Ultimately, this is a great beer and I'm nitpicking, but this beer falls outside the top tier due to the above complaints
