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.

Pours a very dark thick brew with a great brown head with good carbonation and lacing. Moderate head retention. Aroma is of malt and chocolate with a bit of toffee. First sip is chocolate shake goodness. Huge mouthfeel, almost syrupy in nature. Bread, toffee, caramel and dark chocolate malt dominate. Just a hint of bitterness at the finish. High alcohol content guarantees a crisp slightly bitter finish. Could drink all night if it didn't put me to sleep so damn fast!

Great Divide is on point with this Yeti!

Appearance: Dark black no light coming through in this one. Beautiful frothy tan head about 2 fingers worth.

Nose: Wow! You get dark chocolate, vanilla, robust coffee,

Taste: Are you kidding me! You get dark chocolate on the front, the middle is subtle vanilla notes, a small hint of the oak and the finish is spectacular! Dark chocolate and coffee bitterness!

Overall one of my favorite in the Yeti series
