Has the Oak Aged Yeti on tap at St Gambrinus in Boerum Hill.

12 ounce poor served in a tulip glass with practically no head. It was opaque with decent lacing that sat around for a bit.

The smell was dark chocolate, a hint of coffee, and a pine kick from the hops. It was sweet like the regular Yeti but I did not detect any of the vanilla.

Caramel and chocolate were the first flavors I found. I didn't get any of the toffee that was in Yeti but rather I got more of a pronounced hop kick and a bit of vanilla sweetness from the barreling process.

The mouthfeel was definitely that of a big beer. I felt the booziness of the 9.5% but it was still creamy. The bitterness of the pine was not my favorite part.

Overall, I actually liked the plain version of Yeti compared to this oak aged version. While it was more complex than the original version, it was way more bitter and harsh.
