Aroma of chocolate and raisins. Jet black with brown sugar colored head. Tastes of more chocolate, roasted coffee beans, raisins. The star of this beer is the palate, compliments of the oatmeal. Thick, oily, syrupy. This is awesome.

Pitch freaking black pour. Dark tan head. Aroma is oak, dark fruits, chocolate, roasted malts, licorice, slight alcohol. Taste is mostly the same, with some coffee flavor added. Really nice. Full bodied. Nice.

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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
