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.

Long overdue review. Had this Yeti once on-tap long ago, finally getting around to revisiting/reviewing. Bottle was about 6 months old.

Black beer, tan head, good retenetion, some lace, etc. It's Yeti.

Lots of chocolate, roast, caramel in the nose.

Taste delivers big Hershey-type chocolate, has a fudgy brownie vibe. Nicely backed with caramel, roasted malts, some vanilla, some hops and oak. Not getting much of the cayenne pepper spice - it's Yeti, ya know?

Thick, smooth mouthfeel, a bit of booze but drinks pretty easy considering. Mouthfeel is always a Yeti highlight and this is no different.

Well it's Yeti and it's X-tra chocolatey. Since Yeti is already quite chocolatey in itself, this isn't really as outstanding as other variations (Espresso, Barrel Aged, regular Oak), but it's still a treat of a stout.
