From bottle, 1/21/14

A: motor oil black with a fluffy brown head, only appears with a 90 degree pour
S: sweet roasted malt, coffee and cocoa, raisins and dates, pumpernickel and a hint of orange
T: Lots of raisin up front and throughout, really great (if quick) coffee and charred notes in the finish with a touch of pine; lingering burnt, cocoa bitterness

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Thick, black beer with a dark brown to beige, two finger head. Lacing on the glass when the head sinks down to a thin, brown layer.

Nose: Chocolate cream, vanilla, ice cream, honey, toffee, brown sugar, nuts, hops, coffee and of course the special "Great Divide" smell! I JUST LOVE IT!

Mouth: Full, great, big, complex body with a very small amount of carbonation. Coffee, dark roasted malt, espresso, ash, caramel malt and a lot of dark chocolate!

This is a MUST HAVE. I love it. I’m glad I’ve saved a few in the beercellar :)

4.53/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Thick, pitch black pour. Completely devoid of anything light. The head doesn't immediately form, but when it doesn, it's brown and creamy. Moderate retention, fluffy creamy bubbles, with a chocolate lace left in its wake.

Dark, roasty malt, expresso, smoky scent fill the nose. Subsequent is the wave of caramel and faint dark fruits that fill the nose. No hop presence, but you can smell the bitterness from the roasted grains.

It's all vague malts up front, but as the beers wonders toward the throat, the gentle chocolate flavor evolves. The raisin gives some balance as the bittersweet chocolate intensifies the flavors in the finish.

For some a big beer, it's very easy to drink. The oatmeal provides plenty of creamy smoothe texture so you don't get a grainy feel like its brothers. Sweetness collides with bitterness throughout before a warming bitterness lingers til the next sip starts. Full bodied, you can feel thick viscosity. No carbonation so the palate is left sticky with a syrupiness.

Overall, it's a hell of a beer and exceptionally drinkable. Not something you chug, you could easily nurse this for an hour or more...and love every sip. Would make a great nightcap or dessert beer.

Pitch black pour, deep tan head, thick and rich-looking and with sticky lacing evident off the bat. Settles.
Smells like cocoa, dark cordials, banana esters, raisin, yet much hidden.
So thick and velvety upon sipping this. The oatmeal IS this beer now. It glues everything else together, the raisin, the dark pudding (yes, with this mouthfeel it's like chocolate pudding). Sweet, and with a roast flavor that that does not turn too bitter. Not complex, but a big treat of its own.
Thick-bodied and slick, with medium carbonation.
This is a tasty, rich and oily imperial stout. A sipper, and a dessert beer no doubt.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 6/25/2013. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dark brown head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, char, toast, raisin, molasses, oats, dark bread, herbal, pine, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and moderate hop/raisin notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, char, toast, oats, dark bread, molasses, raisin, herbal, pine, and roasted earthiness. Good amount of pine/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, char, toast, molasses, oats, dark bread, raisin, herbal, pine, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic balance, complexity, and robustness of intense dark/roasted malt flavors with moderate raisin and hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and moderately chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding imperial stout as expected. Fantastic complexity and balance of intense dark/roasted malt flavors with moderate raisin/hop presence; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours black and thicker than I expected based on other yetis I have had. Some mocha head.

Aroma is chocolate, espresso, dark fruits.

Taste follows the nose but with a big raisin note about midway through.

The fullest mouthfeel I have experienced with Yeti. Likely my favorite Yeti that I have had.

Pours pitch black with tan head.

Espresso and roasted malts on the nose.

More viscous than anticipated. Bigger mouthfeel and chewier that I anticipated.

Complex malt bill but I was expecting something easier to drink. I'm nit sure if the viscosity is more overwhelming or if this is due to the age. I believe this was a 2010.

The bitterness doesn't really come through past the background. Lingering resins hops and caramel. Tasty imperial stout but I was expecting more and an easier drinking beer

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Like all yeti's, pitch black and viscous, deep brown thin head. Nose is definitely a bit different on this one with a bit of that added raisin comes through, dark fruit, rum raisin. Some classic yeti scents come through as well earthy herbal hops and rich roasted barley.

Familiar yet with a bit more balance. Still has that wicked unruly yeti hop character but theres a nice balance sweet dark fruit character up front. Rich viscous chewy body. Sweet rum raisin, dark chocolate notes up front, herbal earthy bitterness through out. A monster of a beer without a touch of alcohol, rich bitterness, touch of sweetness. A welcome addition to the yeti line in my opinion. Different enough to stand amongst the others and just as good. Almost like a halfway tamed yeti. Pretty damn good, sweetness mellows out some of that rough abrasiveness.

4.41/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a wine glass. Bottled 25 June 2013.

A: Completely black. The head is darkest mocha but fleeting. Light bubbles. Nice.

S: My lord! This is so good. It's hard to put my finger on it, but it's incredibly dry, roasty, and faintly sweet. The added raisins are all but indiscernible in the afterscent. Coffee notes.

T/M: Thick, bittersweet, and incredible. Viscous but with an excellent hop/dry roast character. The maintaste is smooth and bittersweet -- sweet from the big malt and added raisins (still unsure whether this was necessary) and bitter from the roasted malt and unusually obvious hop characteristic (this is especially obvious on the aftertaste).

O: This Yeti is absolutely incredible, as are all the others (Chocolate and Original come to mind). Pleased and impressed. Highly recommended, if a bit too sweet. Would have again.

Notes: "Much like its legendary predecessors, this Yeti is big, bold, and dark. The addition of rolled oats softens Yeti's notoriously roasty backbone, and the small amount of raisins added in the brew kettle creates a unique dark fruit character. Just as admired as those that came before it, Oatmeal Yeti Imperial Stout is a gentle beast."

A: Black with a brown ring of head.

S: Dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, molasses, anise in the nose.

T: Dark bittersweet chocolate, dark/medium roast coffee, molasses, a touch of anise. Also a touch of pine and citrus hop character. Floral notes are much stronger in the hop presence.

M: Full bodied and smoothish.

O: I'd say this is better than Espresso Yeti, not quite Chocolate Yeti. It's absolutely delicious and well worth a try.

Pours an ultra deep brown color, and produced a half finger of beige head. Left decent lacing.
The aroma is of roasted malts, burnt sugar, dark chocolate, and a bit of alcohol.
The taste is similar, but with a little dark fruit taste, and a hop bite. Heavy, and sticmy mouth-feel. Low carbonation.
Very good, sipping beer.

This poured with an obvious thickness and viscosity, a deep onyx opaqueness and a dark brown head. The head mounted with a creamy cloud of foam with very dense lacing.

The aroma is chocolatey, with roasted coffee, charred oats, marshmallows and Graham cracker. Almost like a S'More.

The flavors are roasted oats and dry malt Graham Cracker. Chocolate washes over mid palate with a charred ember and smoky finish.

The feel is velvety smooth with a decent fullness and a moderate thickness.

I have had Yeti and Oak Aged Yeti and find this to be my favorite.

Oatmeal Yeti opens to a thick waft of sugar, the initial aromas sweet and smelling more like a heavy Barleywine, with raisins, figs, and scads of candi sugar dripping from the open mouth. After a few seconds, an ashy undercurrent kicks in to temper the sugars, bringing coffee, ash, tobacco, and very light bits of char. The sugars are still developing as well, with heavy cream, vanilla, caramel, and toffee joining the mix, as well as milk chocolate. Thick brown breads, marble rye toast, and fresh barley build up the base, adding earthiness. As a whole, the nose is very nice, offering everything one could expect from a Yeti: fullness, balance, development, and strength. The nose does lack in the savoir faire of some of Yeti's barrel-aged and funkier pieces, but what is present here is simple, clean, and lovely.

On the tongue, the beer opens with a double shot of sugar and ash, the former surprisingly strong and reminiscent immediately of wildflower honey, with berry, raisin, fig, and black cherry fruit esters added for good measure, and the latter nicely dark, the ash, tobacco, black coffee grounds, and peppery char playing very nicely together. The thick brown breads and marble rye are also present, balancing the beer as a go-between for the sugars and ashes, joined by vanilla, caramel, and toffee, as well as bits of toasted nut. These flavors are strong enough to not fade over the course of several mouthfuls, though the sugars do tend to overtake the initial parts of the later mouthfuls. The ashy notes tend to creep up toward the end, and last well into the aftertaste, which lingers on the tongue in burnt goodness for a long time, joined by a bourbon-like overtone (though this has not been barrel-aged) from the 9.5% ABV. Mouthfeel is medium to medium-heavy, though it does feel somewhat light, given the fullness of the flavors, and carbonation is medium.

Overall, this is an excellent Imperial Stout, and the oatmeal gives the mouthfeel a nice slickness that contributes to the sensation that the viscosity is less than it should be. The flavors are excellent and superbly balanced, as is characteristic of the Yeti line, the sugars being especially full and round. This is actually one of the beer's weaker points, however, for the sugars are so full that they overshadow much of the darker, ashy notes for most of the mouthful. Still, this is excellent fare, and worth trying.

Poured into Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Label says Bottled On: JUN 24 2013.

A- Pours a deep jet black color with a 1/2 inch brown head that retains very well before settling to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick bubbly ring behind.

S- Dark roast with a bit of sweetness, likely from the raisins. Notes of coffee, molasses and brown sugar. Also a bit of a booze fume.

T- The smooth, roasty flavor brings notes of milk chocolate and combines with the dark fruit-like taste of the raisins making for a lusciously decadent sweetness. Alcohol is beautifully well-hidden.

M- When this hit my tongue, my eyes rolled in the back of my head. Velvety soft feel where calling it creamy just doesn't do it justice. Medium carbonation and the fullest of bodies.

O- I think this is my favorite Yeti and I've now had all of them. The Espresso Oak-aged was previously my favorite but this is otherworldy as far as depth and flavor goes. GD killed it with this one.

I have been trying to do a vertical of all the Yetis for a while now, and every time I bring it to the table with friends it ends up being too much of an endeavor. So instead I finally decided to just start drinking them one at a time. To start, I'm doing the freshest, bottled on July 16, 2013.

Pours a jet black semi thick frothy little creamy head covering that fades at a med to quicker pace, very little lacing but nice legs as the thick beer runs down the sides of the glass much better than the lacing, and the beer is just pitch black, no light getting through, and it even seems to stain the glass a little.

Nose is pretty nice, starting with plenty of dark malts, and continuing with them for a while, little roasty malt with plenty of varying caramels that bring a little creme brulee, into a super dark chocolate, thick syrupy but bitter dark chocolate, little baker's and semi sweet as well. Then into a creamy aroma, oats and oats rolled in dark chocolate, touch of roasted coffee, and interesting caramelized raisin covered in chocolate.

Taste starts rich and creamy, more oats and again oats rolled in dark chocolate, into big heavy malts, mostly chocolate and dark caramel malts, with a touch of roasty and black malt that gets fairly sweet and just a bit burnt. Hint of coffee from the roast leads into the different chocolate levels, dark and baker's mostly, with a nice creamy lush feel that's not too far off from melting chocolate, nice oat level almost chewy like, and some caramel flavors with a little caramelized sugar and fluffy nougat but not a ton, and just a hint of a fruity raisin like flavor, chocolate covered caramelized raisin again which is so light I wouldn't have found it if I wasn't looking for it. Finish is long, some decent bitterness kicks in with a little earthy and spicy hop and bitterness from the roasted characters, more lingering creamy lush chocolate and dark malts, little caramel, bit more of the chocolate covered raisin coming through too.

Mouth is really nice, big creamy and lush, velvety, nice fluffy carb even, very faint hint of warming booze which is good for 9.5%.

Overall very nice, as expected from any of the Yetis, delicious malt characters, so creamy and lush, chewy even, very faint hint of raisin that I wish was a bit more, nice bitterness, good long finish, drinks very well for 9.5%. can't wait to get to the rest of the Yetis.

Bottle I brought to share at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Bottled 7/16/13.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, toasted oat, cocoa, and charred fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and char flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of roast and char qualities all around.

Picked up a bomber from Total Wine in late August for $9.99. Bottled on 7-16-13.

Beer poured jet black with a nice brown head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is roasted malted, mocha, chocolate.

Taste is classic Yeti roasted malts that are mellowed somewhat by rolled oats. Bitter chocolate is prevalent from the beginning. A decent amount of hops balanced leading to a nice bitter chocolate finish.

Mouthfeel is near perfect, medium to full bodied and very smooth.

Overall this is a nice spin of the Yeti franchise. I love oatmeal stouts and this rates right up there with the best i have had. Glad i was able to snag a bottle!

650ml brown glass bottle with standard Great Divide label art and black foil-ed over branded pry-off pressure cap acquired at Lukas Liquor and served into an EKU 28 stem-snifter in me gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, CO. Reviewed live. Expectations are high given the brewery. Reviewed as an imperial stout because the label clearly identifies it as one. Bottled: Jun 24 2013. 9.5% ABV confirmed. Stout brewed with raisins.

Served cold - straight from the fridge - and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a one finger wide head of gorgeous dark tan/brown colour. Fantastic creaminess and thickness. Great smooth consistency and soft inviting complexion. Head retention is superb - about 8-9 minutes. Very impressive for the ABV. No lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

Body colour is a predictably opaque solid jet-black. Appears well-carbonated. No floating yeast particles are visible.

Overall, it's a very appealing appearance for an imperial stout and I can't wait to try it. Not unique, but it seems special. There are no egregious flaws.

Sm: Rich roasted barley, dark malts, chocolate malts, cream, fairly roasty coffee, light earthiness, some coffee bitterness, faint golden raisins, oats, a kiss of black strap molasses, and extremely faint fennel.

No hop character, yeast character, or even alcohol is detectable.

An assertive, appealing aroma of moderate to strong strength. I'm looking forward to trying it, but so far it's not in league with the best imperial stouts.

T: The foundation/body is comprised of dark malts, chocolate malts, decent roasted barley notes, and lightly bitter coffee. Has some earthiness and bitterness from the coffee. Cream. Oats - though they don't lend any starchiness, which I like. Caramel. Sticky raisin.

Good sweetness/bitterness balance.

A balanced, enjoyable flavour profile. Good complexity and subtle. Little intricacy or nuance. Above average depth of flavour. Average duration and intensity of flavour (to style). Very cohesive, but not gestalt.

I like that it doesn't have the burnt character of many imperial stouts. Little alcohol presence is noticeable. No yeast character comes through; it's quite a clean taste.

Mf: I love the creaminess. Smooth and wet. Luscious. Good comforting presence on the palate; it's very approachable. It's soft, but could be softer. Silky. Good body and thickness. Complements the flavour profile well, and even seems custom-tailored to the taste to a degree.

Not oily, astringent, harsh, gushed, hot, or boozy.

Dr: Drinkable for an imperial stout, with a satisfying flavour profile and plenty of character. Another solid offering from Great Divide, this imperial oatmeal stout offers a lot to be desired and comes the closest to a smooth porter texture of any of the Yetis. Hides its ABV well. I'll easily kill this bottle alone, though the fairly high sweetness will impede my efforts somewhat. I'd buy this again, and I'm glad Great Divide started brewing it, but I'm not sure it was worth replacing the beer it did. I'd recommend it to friends, and look forward to revisiting it in the future.

Might age well. I'd be curious to find out.

Pours dark black with a one finger mocha head, with nice retention and lacing. The aroma is very nice with chocolate, roasted malt, molasses, and raisins.

Tastes much like it smells with chocolate, dark roasted malt, molasses, raisins, oats, and some earthiness. This has to be one of the best tasting versions of Yeti I have tried. I wish Great Divide would make this all the time.

Full bodied with modest carbonation. Very smooth and easy to drink, likely due to the addition of oats. An incredible Imperial Stout, which I highly recommend trying.

This yeti was not one of my favorites, It seems that everything was mellowed out.
The appearance was standard yeti with a menacingly dark brew with a thick and clingly head.The aroma was odd really to say the least. The roasted malts were very subdued and restaint with a off aroma that for lack of had a creamy feel.
I had plenty of oatmeal stouts so I had a pretty good idea about what I was going to smell, and this ain't it.
Tame flavor. The roasted malts were very tame, from the oatmeal? I don't know.
Alcohol warming slapped the sides of my tongue while the rest of this velvetty flowing fluid coated everthing else.
This really wasn't that bad but I'll mark it as one of my lesser favorites.

Oatmeal Yeti pours black into the glass with a big, thick brown head on top. The foam fades away slowly leaving a coating of lace on the glass.

The aroma is malty and earthy. Roast malt, chocolate, nuts, molasses, alcohol and a little coffee are all present.

Each sip of this full bodied beer is soft and creamy on the palate with moderate carbonation. The flavor is sweet and rich in chocolate and roasted malt. It's also a bit nutty with a little molasses, vanilla, and toffee mixed in. It finishes with a moderate amount of bitterness and some grassy hops. Once gone the chocolate and roast malt lingers on the palate.

This beer has a great mouthfeel and nice sweet stout flavor. It's like dessert in a glass.
