3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Sweeter, less roasty, more rounded out, and more quad like Yeti. Not preferable to me, and the least preferable for all comparing Espresso, Chocolate, Oatmeal, Oak aged & Normal.

Oatmeal Yeti is a strange new animal in Great Divide’s fantastic series, but strange can sometimes be beautiful. Oatmeal Yeti trades smoky, bittersweet malt for velvety smooth oats. The characteristic hoppy zing is exchanged for fruity sweetness. Yes, Oatmeal Yeti is very different indeed. This stout pours black and has a frothy, brown head - looks like the perfect oatmeal stout. Aroma, on the other hand, is totally unlike any stout I’ve tried. The raisin notes are huge. It reminded me of a quad, but the dark fruit smells are fresher and juicier. Taste reveals chocolate, raisin, and partially sweet malt. Mouthfeel is silky but also sticky. Every Yeti I’ve had is special. In that respect, Oatmeal Yeti is exactly the same.

A- Dark fruits, cocoa, roasty.
A- Black color, black liquid, brown head.
T- Cocoa, roasty, malty, raisins, bitter chocolate.
P- Full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, roasty smooth finish.
O- The addition of raisins here is great. Adds a very welcoming dark fruity nose and subtle addition to the taste. The oatmeal helps to smooth things out as well and makes for a great head. Overall, I didn’t get much of a difference from the regular Yeti which I did not like other the nice dark fruit added.

Aroma is very thick and rich, and I was alerted by the deep dark fruit aroma that invaded my nostrils. The taste does truly take you for a ride, deep and dark fruity with a quite heavy roast. But, the oatmeal takes off the efges on this one, and together with the raisins in it, it adds an mature sweetness that really opens the door to another room of taste experiences. Actually now, when I think about it, this one could be the best of the Yeti variants that I’ve tasted.
