Black with a brown head that's hardly there.

At first I thought I picked up the raisins but that was in the bottle not the pint glass. After that, not much.

There's this little something with the Yetis that rubs me wrong. It's an edge of... baker's chocolate, maybe. And hops. The raisin creeps up as the beer warms, doesn't seem out of place. Still tastes oak aged, slightly smokey. Still, this isn't the rich, bursting flavor I was looking for. The beer's in desperate need of a sweet note.

Very leathery but not creamy, which would go a long way.

bomber shared at a 2013 yeti tasting. bottled on: JULY 16, 2013.

pours a very dark brown with a brown frothy head. a mild fruitiness makes its way to the chocolate/roast of the yeti. there is a weird prune-like flavor going on here. definitely get some of the raisins. the rolled oats mellow out the coffee and chocolate typically found in regular yeti. a mild bitterness. lingering roast. lingering prune and raisins. alcohol heat.

probably my least favorite of all the 2013 yeti's. the classic is great, all the oak varieties are quite good, I just feel like this missed the mark a little bit. however, still excited to see what they do next year.

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
M: quite smooth, but not as heavy as I'd like
O: Decent, a bit much on the raisin, but not really overboard. Overall well made.
