P: Pours a pitch black body with super dark espresso head. A short flare of froth that dissipates to a honeycomb of bubbles. Not much retention but a nice band if silky lacing.
S: Roasted, sweet dark malts, powdery graininess from the rolled oats, slight coffee and earthy notes.
T/M: Dark fruits show up more in the flavor than the nose. Bittersweet chocolate, rum soaked raisins, roasted molasses, powdered cocoa and dusty rolled oats that kinda get stuck in the throat. This is much sweeter than the original and has more of a syrupy body. Earthy hops linger at the finish. Smoldered wood and alcohol come out toward the end once warmed.
O: You really can't go wrong with any I the Yeti offerings. I enjoyed the extra sweet malt with the syrupy body. I like that fact that this displays more natural flavors rather than the often used artificial flavors. Glad I grabbed this up.

From a 650 ml bottle (dated June 19, 2014) to a snifter.
A-The brew is opaque and nearly black. No light getting through here. The head is short, but retention is good and there is even a bit of lacing on the glass.
S-The aroma is rich and dense with dark chocolate, some creaminess, a light char-roasted flavor, as well as some raisin and prune. Bitterness is pretty high, but more from hop flavor than roasted or smoke.
T-The taste is similar to the smell. It is dense and opulent with dark, dried fruit (raisins and prunes), blueberry, some dark chocolate, and milky chocolate.The famous Yeti hop hit also creeps in among the malts. The finish is a touch rough and hot compared the opening with some alcohol burn.
M-The feel is medium to full body with mostly smooth carbonation of average strength for the style.
O-Ho hum, another Yeti variant and another great beer. The oats don't really come through on their own, but they add a noticeable smoothness and richness to the beer that is not there in the normal version. This beer also has more dark fruit than normal Yeti, as you might expect. All that smoothness falls off a bit on the finish, but this is still a very fine beer.
