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.

pushkinwow (2245) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
Bomber 2013. Black with a nice mocha creamy head that fades to a colourful ring. Nice roast malt presence, some of chocolate, oatmeal and grains come through more then normal but not overwhelming, overall seems more mild but still lots of of flavour; smooth, full body, moderate carbonation, bitterness is nicely balanced, booze is extemely well hidden except for a very slight presence on the finish, which has typical yeti characteristics but a little smoother then normal. Overall I would call this a clear winner and I hope this becomes regular addition to the line up.

Bottle, Systembolaget. Black with a creamy tan head. The aroma was nice with roasted malt, chocolate, some cocoa and toffee. Similar taste. Also some fruit and licorice. Almost a full body on this one. The mouthfeel was creamy. Once again a lovely Yeti.

daknole (10281) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Very dark brown pour, brown head. All the yetis are good, this one has some nice creamy notes from the oats, fruitier than I remember past regular or oak aged yetis.

JDBaker11058 (1540) - Maryland, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Appearance: syrupy black pour into a snifter, with a scant ruby-purple fizzy head quickly vanishing; no lace, but plenty of legs. Aroma: bittersweet baker’s chocolate, licorice, wet pine, soy sauce, smoke, pumpernickel, and a hint of port. Taste: roasty chocolate, coffee, leather, cream, a hint of raisin-cherry booze, leather, and resin. Finish: smooth, slick, and full, with a slowly building alcohol warmth and a syrupy red wine note. Notes: So excited when I saw this bottle--didn’t know a new Yeti was due. Don’t detect much oatmeal in the flavor, but the palate is definitely richer, fuller, and smoother than the traditional version, which is saying something. The raisins are surprisingly prominent in the aroma and flavor, although not detractingly so. This is quite a nice beer on its own, and a worthy addition to the hallowed Yeti pantheon.

Ron shared his bottle, thanks Ron! Toasted, dry, dark chocolate, oak taste. Appearance is jet black with a tan head, very nice appearance. Nose is vanilla, licorice, leather. Palate is smoky, roasted, woody. Full thick bodied, charred. Gets oilier and better as it warms. It’s very good but not my favorite of the style.
