Pours a pitch black with a coffee colored head that trails the glass. The smell was full of dark chocolate and coffee scents with some sweetness on the finish. The taste was excellent with all the stout flavors coming through in a delicious and warm flavor. The mouthfeel was great with the oatmeal giving it a thickness that lent itself well with the style. Would highly recommend if you're a fan of Yeti.

Out of all of the Yeti's I think this one is my favorite and I'm pretty sure I've had all of them (Oak-Aged, Oak-Aged Espresso, Chocolate, etc..).

Bottled July 9, 2014: Pours pitch black opaque color with a 1 finger creamy brown head that was full of tiny bubbles and looked like lava percolating at first, settling into a creamy head that faded slowly, leaving great lacing coating the sides and rings as it went down.

Smells of rich toasted grains, oats, molasses, brown sugar, dark chocolate, caramel, maple syrup, cocoa powder, coffee beans, sweet fruit and the raisins listed on the bottle coming through at the end. It has some earthy notes and light piney hops, but the sweet sugary molasses and raisin notes take over and nullify the malts and oats as it fades. A little less complex nose as compared to its Yeti brethren, but still really nice to inhale.

Flavor is very sweet with a lot more chocolate, coffee and cocoa presence up front and some mild booze, but basically it’s just like the nose with molasses, brown sugar, toasted grains, oats and/or chocolate oatmeal, dark chocolate, caramel, maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla, light charred wood, raisins and other sweet fruit, piney hops, grapefruit and espresso that seems like Hershey’s chocolate syrup was added to it. The bitterness and mild booze reduce the sweetness to keep it below cloying level and make it extremely smooth to drink. Hop spices linger as an added bonus at the end, mixing well with the sweet chocolate and malts.

Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth, like "butta", it is creamy and slick and way too easy to drink for a chewy, heavy beer that’s 9.5% ABV. Basically zero carbonation, a slightly bitter aftertaste and a very complex flavor profile that has excellent malty sweetness and a ton of chocolate/malty/coffee notes that mix well with the classic Great Divide hoppy balance.

Every Yeti beer that I’ve tried has been impressive and extremely enjoyable, and while this may be a slight notch below some of the others it is still an excellent brew and one I will look to purchase and drink on a yearly basis. Could be the best oatmeal infused beer I’ve ever had, and the raisins add a nice touch and fine additions to the nose and taste. I highly recommend this stout.
