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.

Bottled date of 03.19.14.
Poured into a tulip on 05.30.14.

A: Midnight black with no red. 3 finger brown head that retains well and looks like pudding.

S: Vanilla, cocoa, espresso, oak.

T: Oak woodiness dominates. Cayenne pepper and chocolate are subtle.

M: Creamy.

O: The oak was way overdone in this one. The cayenne pepper was strange and did not go well at all with the rest. At 9.50% ABV, this did not need any more heat. The chocolate base was good, but was barely there. This was completely unbalanced, so it went down the drain. I couldn't get the awful taste out of my mouth.
