4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
It is a well blend aroma of oatmeal, raisins, and roasted malts. It is colored black with a rich chocolate brown head that slowly dissipates. A very rich taste with some bitterness that blends the oatmeal and the malts well, with a hint of the raisins. Definitely one of my favorites.

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.

bottle shared at craigs thanks to Bruce, cheers!
hazy cola brown, thin tan lacing. burnt toast and mint on nose. mint carries o n in to flavour, cocoa, slightly astringent, thinner than expected. perhaps a duff bottle but a let down Vs great divide’s other efforts.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I don’t taste a tremendous amount of difference between the different variations of Great Divide’s Yeti Imperial Stouts. But I’ve really enjoyed all of them, so I’m not complaining. Oatmeal Yeti might be a little less sweet than the Chocolate and Espresso variations of this stout, but it’s just as rich and seems to have just as much dark chocolate presence. It pours jet black with a thin, brown head. The aroma is coffee and malt and hops. That strong, typically Yeti bitter, dark chocolate is there in the flavor. The vapor on the finish plays the 9.5% ABV card pretty clearly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Great beer - as one expects from this series. But I agree with others that the sweetness is a tad on the high side and veers towards cloying.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a pitch black body with a small off-white head. Nose is licorice, chocolate, figs, dark grapes, dates, coffee and hints of leather, grains and cereals. Taste is chocolate, coffee, raisins, dark fruits, vanilla, alcohol and hints of syrup, cinnamon and cocoa. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Nice one, but the sweetness is a bit too high and the body is too slim for this beer to work properly.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Originally rated on 8/13/14. Another incarnation of the Yeti, cant wait to try it..Pours a dark brownish black body with an off white head. The aroma is dark and roasty with notes of coffee, chocolate, and oats. In the taste, roasted malts, oatmeal are the most prevalent, with a little dark fruit, booze and a slight bitterness. Full bodied, smooth, and creamy, the beer drinks easily. Overall, this is another enjoyable version of a fine stout, worth a try.
