Pours out looking thick and inky black; a nice crop of tan foam forms on top and lingers around nicely.
Smells of cocoa, slight tobacco, raisin, oat, coffee, char, dark chocolate deliciousness.
First sip impresses me with the absolutely luscious texture and balanced drinkability. This one really shines on body thanks to those oats, and they must also really help balance out the insane amount of hops and malt, as I found this to be the easiest sipping Yeti of the bunch. On the other hand, I also really like the hop brashness of regular Yeti, the vanilla sweetness of Oak Yeti, and the huge coffee flavor of Espresso Yeti.
It's hard to pick a favorite (Espresso) because they each shine in their own way. I think Oatmeal Yeti is a much better iteration than Belgian Yeti, so I'm glad they replaced it (or at lest I hope they did). I enjoyed this so much I'm tempted to buy another bottle.

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.
