4.15/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
22oz bomber poured into a snifter, warmed from the fridge for about 15 minutes before popping. Bottled on date is 6/24/13.
A- Looks like any Yeti I've had. Pours a pitch black with a small amount of khaki colored head that sticks to the sides of the glass for awhile.
S- Chocolate and coffee maltiness dominate the smell to me. I also get some hints of dark fruits from the raisins its brewed with also.
T- Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate are the most pronounced tastes for me. I do get some dark fruit and slight oat hints as well, but overpowered by the roasty malts up front.
M- Thick, chewy, medium carbonation, a nice sipping/ dessert beer.
Another nice offering from the Yeti line. I do feel that the overall roastiness from the malts overpower the oats/ raisins but overall a solid brew.

4.09/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
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.
