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.

Bottle. Pours black with a dark brown head that leaves interesting bathtub ring lacing. Full body, medium bitterness, dark chocolate, oily texture, soft carbonation and a long bitter finish. Covers the alcohol pretty well.

Bomber poured into snifter. Pours opaque brown with a thin, dark khaki collar. Lightly carbonated. Aroma is bready, roasted malt, coffee, a bit of chocolate. Flavor is big roasty malts, oatmeal, a hint of dark fruit and some coffee bitterness. Thick, mealy mouthfeel on a heavier beer than the other Yetis. Well made, though the Espresso Oak Aged Yeti is still my favorite of this line.

Black, opaque, tan/brown head. Aroma of biscuity, bread-crust malt with lots of chocolate, roast, a little licorice. Flavor: deep malt, dark bread crusts (a pumpernickel character), a little toffee, licorice, dark chocolate, a fairly thick, viscous, silky mouthfeel. A big, chewy, somewhat thick imperial stout with oatmeal character evident. Very well made.

Pours an opaque dark brown with a dark khaki head of one finger and good lacing. Aroma of oats and roasted coffee with some chocolate. Taste is very roasty with coffee and creamy oatmeal, dark chocolate and a bit of dark fruit. Some grainy astringency and hop bitterness. Full mouthfeel and body with medium carbonation. Finishes with some astringency and bitterness. Roastiness is a bit harsh and could use some age to round out the flavors. Not my favorite of the Yeti line.

2013 bomber to a tulip glass. Pours a deep black with a small, creamy ruby brown head with sticky lacing. Aroma is roasty and creamy with the oats balancing out the chocolate malt smell. Taste is roasted coffee and chocolate with dark fruit. Good dose of hops bitterness at the end that overtakes the sweetness. A full, semi dry mouthfeel, despite the sweet. A little rough around the edges but will probably smooth out with some age. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bomber pours with a deep dark body that supports a full dark colored mocha head of foam that leaves behind spotty lacing. The aroma offers up big dark roasted malts, burnt malts, dark roasted coffee and a modest degree of earthy dark chocolate. OK Yummers. The taste is typical Yeti (even though it has been years since I last had one, too long) where its smooth and rich and bold in all the right ways. I get firm dark roasted maltiness, some burnt malts and a tasty chocolate note. There’s some dark roasted coffee hitting about midway and helping to take this to a rewarding finish. Typical greatness here. The one knock is the price point. One aspect of Yeti that made it great to me was the sub $6 per bomber price point (pre 2009 I think). This puppy is $11, what gives?

P: Pours a pitch black body with super dark espresso head. A short flare of froth that dissipates to a honeycomb of bubbles. Not much retention but a nice band if silky lacing. S: Roasted, sweet dark malts, powdery graininess from the rolled oats, slight coffee and earthy notes. T/M: Dark fruits show up more in the flavor than the nose. Bittersweet chocolate, rum soaked raisins, roasted molasses, powdered cocoa and dusty rolled oats that kinda get stuck in the throat. This is much sweeter than the original and has more of a syrupy body. Earthy hops linger at the finish. Smoldered wood and alcohol come out toward the end once warmed. O: You really can’t go wrong with any I the Yeti offerings. I enjoyed the extra sweet malt with the syrupy body. I like that fact that this displays more natural flavors rather than the often used artificial flavors. Glad I grabbed this up.

Another great Yeti Stout in the series. Oats make this roasted monster very smooth and quite enjoyable. You can tell there’s more dark fruits in this one and the finish is sweet but dry from the black malts. Great effort here.
