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.

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. Black pour with a tall, dense, frothy brown head. Strong roasted malt, vanilla, dark chocolate and dark fruit in the nose. Taste is big roasted malt, dark fruit, dark chocolate notes, vanilla, molasses, coffee and booze. Body is medium-full with a dense, creamy carbonation and lots of sugary stickiness. Boozy warmth on the back end as well. Ends with more dark chocolate, dark fruit, roasted malt, burnt caramel, vanilla notes, molasses and coffee.

swoopjones (5643) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2014
draft, another solid IS in the Yeti series. almost fuller bodied black pour, roasty, chocolate, hint of coffee. very smooth IS, oats mellow it just a tad more than the others. Very drinkable at 9.5

AirForceHops (2972) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 13, 2014
22 oz. bottle with a bottle date of 16 July, 2013. As my cellar slowly starts to dwindle away, I can’t recall where I got some of them. Anyhow... I killed this bomber by myself and I don’t feel guilty about it. Used motor oil with a small tan head. Aroma is charred malt, roasted coffee bean and earthy, premium dark chocolate.

This is the body I look for in an imperial stout! Thick and chewy with the oat flakes adding that beautiful thickness. Flavor has big roast and again that premium chocolate, burned coffee with some light dark fruit hints. Secondary flavor of anise and ash. Smooth, soft carbonation. No alcohol to be found after a year sitting. I believe I have covered the entire Yeti family and if GD decides to brew another variant, I will not complain at all. Top tier like the rest of the yeti series.

OldGrowth (2610) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2014
10 oz pour at Tyler’s Apex. Good aroma. Sweet roasty. Chocolate, coffee, the dairy thing I get from oats. Dark orangy brown color. Good initial head faded quickly. Little to no lace. Sweet bitter flavor. Thick body creamy viscous oily mouthfeel. Sweet bitter finish. Good as always with the yeti. Oat gives a extra chewiness. Flavor best part for me. But it’s all good.

ROBC3366 (535) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Pours thick black with foamy mocha head and a bit of lacing. Strong roasted malt presence with dark fruit and Carmel on the nose. Palate is dark roast coffee with sweet grain, dried grape and warm boozy finish. An amazing stout! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
