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.

Was excited to finally see this sitting on the shelf. I poured into a snifter after chilling in my fridge. S/Roasted malts, chocolate, and hops. The chocolate was slight. T/It was very thick for a great mouthfeel. Where is the chocolate? I only got a slight chocolate flavor. All I tasted was roasted malts and hops. The start was nice but the chocolate never really came. The finish was hops and bitterness. I let the stout warm thinking it may help develop the flavor but alas it did not happen. The stout was relatively young bottled in 04/14. Maybe age would help this mature? IDK....I would be willing to purchase this again and give it another go maybe with some age. If I could do this all over again I would have passed this up and not the expresso Yeti sitting right next to it.

Pours dark brown, minimal head. Minimal aroma. Very dry. Lots of oak and dark bakers' chocolate. Some coffee, and a bitter finish.
