4.08/5  rDev -2.4%

Pours a black body with minimal tan head and lace.
Has a roasted malt aroma that has hints of both chocolate and coffee.
Smooth, slightly sweet from chocolate and balanced with dry, roasted malts that give off a touch of coffee.
Rather simplistic stout but it's so smooth while maintaining both a sweet and dry edge that it is so drinkable (and dangerous as the ABV is well-hidden).
Just a well-tailored stout.

4.09/5  rDev -2.2%

Poured from a bottle with a bottled on date of 6/19/14; into a snifter.
Appearance - dark as a shadow; creamy mocha head that leaves plenty of lacing.
Smell - roasted coffee, dark fruits (possibly the raisin).
Taste - flavorful espresso, just the right amount of warming alcohol.
Feel - big, bold and creamy!
Overall - another great Yeti, that I have cellared and will review again!

4.61/5  rDev +10.3%

June 2013 bottle, opened August 2014

A - Pitch black body with an espresso foam head. Nice retention and lace.

S - Awesome nose. Best of the Yeti's. Rich oatmeal, sweet cream, light coffee, vanilla, and milk chocolate.

T - Wow, definitely the best tasting of the Yeti's. Cream, raisins, oatmeal, spiced rum, dark chocolate truffles, caramel, dried cocoa nibs, Nutella.

M - Beautiful. Thick, creamy, and super smooth. Touch of warm booze.

O - Best of the Yeti's in my opinion, and one of the best oatmeal stouts I've ever had. Big, chewy, bold, and smooth.

4.38/5  rDev +4.8%

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a Yeti snifter. Purchased in Sturbridge, MA.

Pours a deep brown translucent body with cherry highlights and a light coffee colored head that reduces slowly and leaves blotchy lacing.. very nice appearance. Deep aromas of cocoa, marshmallow, toffee, caramel, and some dark fruits come through. The first notes to hit the tongue are cocoa, fresh coffee, toasted marshmallow, roasty malt, some dark fruit. The finish is slightly bitter like dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is not as heavy as you'd expect with medium low carbonation.

Overall a great variant of one of my favorite stouts. Easy to drink, complex, and balanced, and not too heavy on the wallet. Recommended.

4.05/5  rDev -3.1%

Bottled in 6/2014
The beer pours a nice black, not seeming too viscous, and generating a modest head, tan with normal size bubbles (not as foamy as might be expected). The carbonation dies maintain a light film on the surface.

The initial nose (cold) is woody with hints of roasted malt and coffee, not very strong. Warmth brings a bit more of a chocolate scent, but still nothing too strong.

The first sips bring a mélange dark chocolate, raisin, alcohol, and a slight piney bitterness. All the tastes do have a smoothness to them, perhaps tempered by the oats (I do recall feel the Oak-Aged Yeti was a bit overpowering in its tastes). The carbonation is light but noticeable, lending to an overall medium-full body.

A nice beer, well made and enjoyable. A tad on the dry side, but a very nice sipping beer, especially for breakfast.

All the good things about Yeti are here: the rich roast aroma, the deep malt flavors, the silky mouthfeel. But this is a mellow Yeti and that's in no way a bad thing. The oatmeal smooths out the sometimes rougher edges and the raisin adds just a hint of sweetness near the finish.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a black color and a thick consistency. There was an inch and a half of foamy, tan-colored, long-lasting head. Great lacing.

S: A pretty good aroma of malt, chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit.

T: Tasted of a bit of chocolate, roasted malt, raisins, a hint of the advertised oatmeal, and coffee. There was a burnt quality to the flavor that slightly diminished the power of the other ingredients, but aside from this it was solid enough.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a viscous finish. Full-bodied.

O: While this beer is a bit uneven in spots, it's still well worth checking out. A substantial brew.
