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.

The depth of this beer is endless. Superior thickness and feel give way to a nice black licorice, dark chocolate, and oaky profile. Thick and chewy, this beer is all about the feel as it drains down your gullet. Sure, other stouts may absolutely nail all the flavors, yet this beer is feel first and taste later. My first of the Yeti family, I look forward to trying the other members...

Pitch black with a 1 finger brown head, aromas of chocolate, coffee and roasted malt, more chocolate and roasted malt in the flavor and a thick, almost viscous body with light carbonation well hidden alcohol and long legs. This is one of the best of its class and a moderately priced option if one is looking for a big stout.
