I haven't had Yeti or any of its variations in a couple of years, so I'm excited.
Poured from a bomber into a snifter.
A- pours motor oil black, a nice half finger mocha head that dissipates after a few minutes to a nice covering, very nice lacing, perfect looking imperial stout
S- dark chocolate, roasted malt, some oak, creamy vanilla, the dark fruits are an interesting factor here
T- very similar to the nose, very roasty, bitter, dark chocolate, black coffee, creamy vanilla accentuated by the oatmeal, dark fruits slightly less noticable, chewy as well, slight alcohol burn at the end of the sip, solid
M- heavy body but has that nice creamy smoothness from the oatmeal, covers the whole palate, slight burn from the alcohol but nothing offensive
O- I like this variation of better than others I've tried, I'm still a traditional Yeti guy at heart but this is a nice style with the oatmeal, def worth a try

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.
