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.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Cellared for over a year.

Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Samuel Adams nonick.

a; Opaque black with an inch tall tan head which receded to thick even surface foam and dense patterned lacing.

s; Chocolate!

t: Espresso and dark chocolate followed by a sharp bitterness. Some throat burn from the high ABV. The coffee flavor may mask or blend with any taste coming from the oak aging, although some of that seems to show up later as a smoky woodiness in taste and aftertaste, as does the cayenne pepper in the form of a lingering throat burn.

m: Full and smooth. A beauty, just what a stout should be.

o: A tasty and powerful flavored Imperial stout.
