COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Much like its legendary predecessors, this Yeti is big, bold and dark.  The addition of rolled oats softens Yeti’s notoriously roasty backbone and the small amount of raisins added in the brew kettle create a unique dark fruit character.  Just as admired as those that came before it, Oatmeal Yeti Imperial Stout is a softer beast.

Breadth, chocolate aroma. Dark black color with tan brown head. Thick and chewy palate, alcoholic, but not overpowering, bitter hop and dried fruit flavor, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

August 13th, 2014 - Great Divide’s Yeti was one of the first stouts I ever had, and it knocked me on my butt. But now I return with more experience (and inches) under my belt to the Oatmeal version of the yeti. Like it’s cousin, it’s a dark brew, and the head clings to the class, grasping, almost as if it is trying to climb out of the glass, and only the vertical walls of the vessel keep it contained. The aroma is defiantly sweet, overflowing with coffee and raisin, and a puff of spice medley, like beef jerky liquified and dropped into the beer to finish it, post-brew. The palate is smooth and subtle, lightly grazing the tongue like a long, luxurious dress that barely grazes the floor. Bordeaux grass blossom and explode like popping flower blossoms after each taste, but each sip also makes that sugary sweetness darker and darker, transforming the taste, and offering a dozen permutations on what is an epic flavor. That dark flavor mostly comes in the guise of chocolate and hazelnut, toning the instrument of the beer down, down into a deep, torso rumbling bass reverberation.

Sdaniel90 (915) - Mexico City, MEXICO - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle, 65cl. Opaque dark brown with a creamy brown head. Aromas of toasted malts, dried fruits, alcohol. Medium to full bodied, moderate to fizzy carbonation. Smooth and creamy. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Stinging and complex character. My kind of Imperial Stout, more bitter than sweet. Smoother than other Yetis.

jflopsu (1198) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Pours a dark black with dark brown head. A strong chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt aroma. A very chocolatey taste that turns to roasted malts and coffee. A lingering dry malt and grain aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours black. Aroma and taste are roasted malts, chocolate, and smoother than regular yeti, but not as good.

Pitch black color, small beige head. Sweet aromas of chocolate, oat and raisins. Sweet taste, raisins, vanilla and chocolate. Roasted malt. Warming alcoholic finish. A bit on the sweet side - still great.

FullBeered (2) - Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2016 does not count
Pours thick like a warning. The head is dark and moody. Body is deep, deep brown. Nose is sharp. Surprisingly hoppy for a stout. Not citrus,, just a complement to the roast. Aroma is salty. Nutty. Outdoor fire. A little cappy. Mouthfeel is broad. Saltiness continues to the sides then ends bitter and quickly fades to the roasted end. Beautiful work there. Lots of fun to drink. Taste is salted kettle popcorn. Sweet roasted grain notes. Lingering glycerin alcohol is covered nicely by the hops. Well done imperial. Will drink again.

Gerbeer (3134) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
659 ml bottle. Pour black with little head. Aromas of chocolate syrup, sweet vanilla, treacle and wet roasted malts. Flavors of dark cocoa powder, dry toasted malts, sour black coffee, and gritty grain/oatmeal. Dry. Really nice.
