3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Super black, oily pour with a deep, deep mocha head that rests as a collar and film. Aroma is sweet and smooth dark chocolate, a sweet creaminess, brown sugar, some milk, and a good amount of oats. Taste is roasty oatmeal and roasted malts, light dark cocoa nibs with a mild, milky underlying sweetness. Maybe just a touch of coffee beans throughout. Creamy mouth feel with a lightly bitter finish. Another Yeti variant, another extremely tasty & well-done beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a black color with a large foamy brown head that left good lacing. The aroma was strong anise, chocolate, vanilla, toasty malts and almost coffee. The flavor was intense with a bitter presence, anise, chocolate, wood, roasty malts, port wine and quite a bit of booziness. Long finish of alcohol, anise, wood, roasty malts and chocolate. Full body. Interesting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated on 8-31-2015 (Bottle) The appearance is a small light brown head with a short retention, black-dark brown opaque body, some carbonation is being observed on the sides of the glass, and there is spotty lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, light coffee, cocoa, and dark fruits. The flavor dis lightly bitter, roasted malt, chocolate, light coffee, dark fruits, and licorice. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This is a very quaffable beer with a very good flavor. It is worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

another old ass lost review on my fone from Aug 2013. Apparently I reviewed it by licking the cap. " Dark fruits, oatmeal, faint pine, plenty of roast, touch earthy". A pro’s pro review for sure.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was dark malt. The sharp thick crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild roasted malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of roasted malt sweet mild hops coffee brown malt dark malt and breads. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours very dark brown with a dense soapy deep tan head. The aroma has dates, figs, cream, smooth roast and a bit of licorice. It has a medium / full body that is pretty smooth and has pretty soft carbonation. The taste starts off with the dark fruits of the aroma, anise/licorice, bitter roast and coffee. The finish has apples, licorice, minerals, medicine and a weird creaminess. Not sure what I think of this one overall.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black, kaki head. Lace. Aroma is dark malts,some herbal hops, dark fruit/berries, molasses, raison.. booze. Same taste with some citrus in finish, syrupy, bit of yeast funk, piney herbal bitter, chocolate rich malt, dryish but smooth and syrupy, pretty bitter finish. pretty boozy, with dry alcohol in finish. Rich sweet dark cherrie berry but balanced by big bitter herbal pine. Not real big on imperal stouts but ocassionally grab one, this one is pretty good. A bit syrupy- flat but silky mouthfeel , more sweet than I like. I probably would like this more if it wasn’t an imperial but can appreciate it for it being an imperial. Fruit oatmeal desert stout.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap @ Great Divide Barrel Bar. Black pour with a khaki head. Ashy and heavy on the dark fruits. Pretty roasty and some dark chocolate and espresso. Sort of a burnt flavor. Kind of briney and perhaps has some olive character to it. Very acidic, in fact. Not really very good.

Oatmeal Yeti (with raisins) on tap.
Dark, essentially black, opaque body with a light brown head.
Smooth thick body with more evidence of high ABV than desired. The high ABV also has a touch more impact on the flavor than I prefer, but it’s well hidden in the aroma. The raisins are not particularly evident given that some ’raisin’ flavor appears in many RIS ales that have no actual raisins.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour with a two finger creamy to oily tan head that has great retention. Aroma is big on roast, toasted bread and bittersweet chocolate, some oxidized coffee, big toasted oatmeal, light smoke, light char. Flavor is dark caramel, roast, oily toasted grain, sweet fruity notes, light herbal, spicy and pine hops, woody char, smoke, coffee liqueur, almond toffee, a little earthy grain, charred oatmeal and light dark fruit. Heavy body, silky, creamy feel throughout light, but blanketing and slightly sharp carbonation. Very tasty stuff and a nice, silky smooth mouthfeel without the gloopy feeling that usually accompanies large additions of oatmeal.
