Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

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: Pours black with a brown head.

S: Roasted malt and dark chocolate in the nose.

T: Dark chocolate, roasted malt (kind of like blackened toast), and a touch spicy from the cayenne.

M/S: Creamy, full bodied and in an ungodly and unholy way, amazing. Worth a trip to San Diego (the closest place for me to find it) from northern California to get it.

This is a nine month old bottle of Yeti.

I poured the Yeti into a tulip glass. There is almost no foam on this beer, what scum exists is a deep tan. This beer is as dark as midnight with no moon.

This beer smells amazing. I really enjoy the heavy coffee and chocolate coming off of this one. You can just breathe this one in.

The first flavor I get on sipping this beer is dark chocolate. The coffee pervades in the flavor as well. The great balance and bombastic flavors make for a great sipper.

This is one of many Yeti's that are easy to get at your liquor store. I recommend all of them; including this one.
