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.

This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a dark brown color almost black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated nicely semi-thin film of lacing running sporadic all around the glass. The smell had milk chocolate bouncing with a oaky/woody dryness all around it. Subtle vanilla slides in underneath. As it warms, some super light cayenne pepper does make a light presence. The taste was dry and milk chocolate sweet. Lingering sweet cocoa to heat-like aftertaste, nice. Spicy cayenne in the finish. On the body, this one sat about a medium on the body. Heat definitely helps it have a great sipping quality about it. Carbonation feels light enough to allow the heat and pepper become a bit drying with a decent stickiness about it. Overall, wonderful imperial stout that I would definitely have again.
