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.

22oz bomber from Spirits Brick. Poured a viscous pitch black with a smaller super tight super dark beige head. Aroma of vanilla extract, wet burnt toast, veggies, rolled oats, chocolate syrup. Body is fuller with lively carbonation and a decent lingering aftertaste. Flavor of grains, dark chocolate, vanilla, burnt toast, marshmallow, cardboard, ink. Interesting.

Bottle shared by a friend. Darkest brown in color with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate and alcohol. Malty and chocolatey flavor with a bitter coffee finish.

22 oz bottle- Pours completely black with no highlights and a dark tan head. Aroma is the usual chocolate, coffee and roasted malts, maybe some vanilla, but the oats impart a nice creamy mellowness. The taste is dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, and dark roasted coffee, fitting for a pitch black beer. The oats are less noticeable in the taste, they are there, mostly in the finish, but honestly this tastes like a really high quality yet regular Impy stout. less on the sweet side, they seem to dose their Yeti beers with ample amounts of hops, which would benefit from a year or two of ageing. A solid beer, I do think it will vastly improve with age, no rush on opening this one!

A smoothness added to the aggressive underbelly of yeti. Wow! The backbone of yeti is so good, it’s hard to imagine an incarnation of yeti to be nothing but a delicious brew. Expect the same motor oil black pour with tons of flavor, aroma and a subtle smoothness added by the oats...there is almost a really really faint malt tartness...acidulated malt? does anyone else notice this??

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a smallish brown head on it. Nose is roasty and smooth, with just a bit of the oats coming through, making you think of an oatmeal cookie. Taste has some dark fruity elements to it, and is slightly sweet over top of the roasting. Smooth though, and really tasty.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle to snifter. Black brown pour with a thick dark brown mahogany head. Smells like sweet chocolate cake, oat smoothness, and a sweet dark raisin finish. Taste is extremely smooth body from the oat with that dark chocolate bite and a subtle but bright raisin finish. Really nice.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is pitch black with a frothy brown head and great lacing. Big roasty, chocolatey, anise, black licorice, leathery, molasses, and espresso in the aroma. Taste is big cocoa, leather, dark fruits, dark chocolate, coffee, anise, a touch of wood, and just the slightest hint of raisins/figs on the backend. Super creamy mouthfeel with sod carbonation. Really enjoyable and not heavy at all, though very rich and decadent. Great addition to the Yeti lineup.

Extraordinary opaque black pour w/ a big mocha head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is a delightful chocolate, roast, boozy, & a tiny hint of raisin deliciousness. The taste quite bitter on the first few sips but becomes very complex as the beer warms. The hops & alcohol are strong but it’s so smooth on the palate! Powerful & tasty! Beautiful man!

Thanks to Beer Savant for sharing a bottle during his 50th birthday bash. Brownish-black pour with a medium foamy beige head that diminishes slowly. Sticky rings of lacing. Roast malt, dark chocolate and coffee in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of chocolate malt, coffee and subtle dark fruit. The finish is roasty and smooth with a malty aftertaste. Good beer all around.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh) Yeti Imperial Stout makes a fantastic base for Great Divides' permutations... Their Espresso is fantastic, the Chocolate beyond fantastic, and the Oatmeal pretty darn fine, too. Pleasant stout with oatmeal overtones. Will make a very good winter beer. May need to stock up for those oh-so-cold North Carolina winters ;-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
