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.

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.
