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.

Serving: Poured from a 22oz bomber into a tulip glass.

A: Perfectly black with a nice red hue dancing around the edges. The thin head fizzles
quickly and offers no lacing.

S: Chocolate notes hit up front, followed up by coffee, malt and spices. I detected hints
of raisins or some other dark fruit as well.

T: A wonderful mixture of vanilla and chocolate hit the tongue first. Then the secondary
but yet equally important second wave comes knocking and says "hello, there's cayenne
and holiday spices in here too". The aftertaste is the all important Imperial aspect of the
beer, finishing the experience with a satisfying "wow!"

M: A little dry on the tongue but with the appropriate amount of carbonation.
Nice and chewy, however.

O: Just like the other beers in the Yeti line, this one is another winner. The combination
of the ingredients perfectly balance out into a highly drinkable stout, perfect for cold
nights spent next to the fireplace, drinking more bottles of this brew.
