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.

A- extremely deep brown, near black in color with a picture perfect caramel head of about a finger. Head is quite dense and full as it hangs around for a while before the ring and bubbles remain. Just the way a stout should look. Enticing!

S- Raw chocolate, coffee, espresso, cream, hint of vanilla, some booze, and a nice caramel finish. Complex and robust on the nose.

T- A well balanced chocolate imperial stout. I think the oak again really complements the chocolate, oat, espresso profile. I could probably use more chocolate (as usual), but it's a weak complaint. Balanced from start to finish.

M- I just love the feel of these Yeti stouts from GD. This one is also spot on. It is simply stunning. Full body, thick, and so chewy that I almost need a spoon. Alcohol is noticeable, but not in any way a detriment.

O- Maybe my fav from the Yeti line. I've found most from this brewery to be hit or miss, and this one is certainly HIT

A: Dark as night. Chocolate syrup midnight swirl...if it were an ice cream. Might as well be...mmm.

S: Cocoa, chocolate, heavy stout smell.

T: Cocoa nibs. Nuff said.

M: Thick, heavy, full-bodied. What a stout should be. Cinder and milk chocolate...yeah.

O: Very delicious beer. I can't say I can differentiate too much between this and the espresso yeti, but who the hell cares. Both are phenomenal beers.
