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 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bomber poured into a snifter

A- Pours pitch motor oil black. No light, no coloration. one finger of a brown head.

S- A little fruit in the nose. some dark fruits and some citrus as well. A moderate amount of chocolate. Theres a bit of the oak character as well. Still fairly hoppy.

T- Bitter up front, A lot of bitterness from the chocolate as well as the hops. The hop flavor has faded but is still somewhat present. Chocolate is this beers strongest flavor. There's a good bit of roasted malt as well as some caramel notes. Alcohol is well hidden. Oak flavor is subtle but only adds to the beer.

M- Smooth but a sipper never the less. Some alcohol warming. Bitter for a stout.

O- Great beer. Good take on the regular Yeti.

This beer poured dark with a thin head on top. I did drink this a little colder than I normally would, but I still enjoyed it a lot!

The chocolate comes through the boozy flavor very nicely. The beer has a very rich mouth feel which comes as no surprise.

I will absolutely be drinking this again in the winter.

Poured into a snifter from a bomber.

A Pours a dark brown that borders on black. It is topped with a very thick mocha head that has excellent retention.

S Lots of dark chocolate, roast, with a hint of vanilla.

T Very earthy with a lot of dark chocolate. A bit of bakers chocolate bitterness with a bit of spice on the finish.

M Thick and creamy quite nice.

Overall this is another excellent Yeti worth seeking out and drinking. The coca nibs pairs well with the base beer and the addition of cayenne pepper is well executed as it doesn't overpower any of the other flavors. Possibly my favorite Yeti so far.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottle poured into a snifter glass

Pours a very dark black color with a slight rich chocolate head that lingers.

Smell is of chocolate and roast.

Taste is smooth dominated by a bittersweet chocolate taste that lasts through the finish.

The finish was slightly thin for me but otherwise a top notch stout.
