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.

Bottled 3/28/2013

22oz Bottle poured into a snifter

A: Pours pitch black with a moderate amount of carbonation leading up to its finger wide mocha/ruby head. The head reduces to a halo around the perimeter of the glass and leaves a nice lacing.

N: I get dark roasted coffee, chocolate, and oak foremost. When I really get my nose in there I get hints of vanilla and very light cayenne

T: Taste like it smells, coffee dark chocolate and caramel. The cayenne is more prominent in the taste than the nose suggests. It leaves a nice touch of spicy heat right after it goes down. It reminds me of a more subtle Lindt Dark Chocolate Chili

M: Full bodied and silky with very low levels of carbonation. Also the chocolate lingers as the palate dries.

O: Excellent Imperial Stout! As expected, it stands up to the other Yetis Ive had thus far. Would recommend would by again.

From growler picked up two days ago from brewery...poured in St Bernardus chalice.
Pours black with brown head.
Aroma of dark chocolate, espresso, dark roasted malts, carob, molasses.
Medium carbonation and big mouthfeel.
Flavors of bitter chocolate, oak, dark roasted malts, molasses. This is big and bold with a strong astringent and dry finish.
Would accompany many desserts nicely.
