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.

Good, oak-y taste and mouthfeel - dry, but could benefit from more thickness.

Flavor lacks depth - lots of bourbon and some oak - but no real chocolate flavors. Roast quality also lacks depth. Good bitterness on the finish with some nice sweetness

Ultimately, this is a great beer and I'm nitpicking, but this beer falls outside the top tier due to the above complaints
