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.

I now the label says "Oak Aged," but I was surprised at how the smokiness of said oak permeated the chocolate (of course, I was drinking this one after I had Rogue's Double Chocolate Stout). But I must say the "surprise" was a good one. This is a very creative beer, in my opinion. I like the juxtaposition of a dark, bitter chocolate with the smoky oak hit at the top of my mouth. The pour was a rich, smooth black, and the head was a gorgeous and enticing tan. The smell, sadly for me, was a tad "soapy." Does that make sense? Overall, this was one one of the better beers I have tasted over the past six months or so.
