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.

Dark and bitter chocolate predominate, cayenne is there along with mild alcohol heat. Not overly sweet. Enjoyable, but not among my all time favorites.

Perfect balance of flavors. One of the best, if not the best chocolate stouts I've ever had.

This was an older bottle, paired extremely well with an aged cigar. The first pour still had a decent head and little lacing. The malty profile was enjoyable, and I could use a few more bottles

Bottled March 24th, 2011.
Moderate pour yields a 1 and a 1/4 inch tan head over a very, very dark brown body with some nice sticky lacing. After a few minutes the head dissipates down to a thick ring with clumps floating on the surface. Nose of chocolate, espresso grounds, and roasted malt. Taste of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, bitter chocolate, and unsweetened chocolate; in other words: Chocolate! Nice feel and overall, quite a nice, surprising treat for such an old Imperial Stout. Cheers!

22 oz, Dec 16 2017 version, poured into a tulip glass, pitch black with active carbonation and three fingers of dark tan head that dissipates slowly.Once drinking it, it moves to a thin lace pretty quickly. Shockingly, the smell is heavy chocolate and cocoa powder, with maybe a tinge of spice and wood. The taste starts with chocolate, gets bitter, moves to faint oak, then a slight twang of spice before going back to bitter chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium, not heavy but full, and the carbonations comes in medium low. An interesting concoction in that nothing seems overpowering in the mix, the roasted malts from the base seem to win out in the end.
