Bottled June 24, 2013

Beer is pitch black with a large cocoa-coloured head. Good retention.

Nose contains roast malt, oatmeal and chocolate. A bit of raisin, but not a lot, which is good. Smells like an oatmeal cookie.

Taste contains roasted malt primarily, Oatmeal as well. Again, the raisin is present but is not strong. Vanilla. Alcohol is noticeable, a bit too strong.

Full bodied, low carbonation level. Heavy, A bit creamy, but not to the extent I expected.

Overall, very good. Not something to search high and low for, but very tasty.

The next addition to the Yeti series. Pours a pitch black color with a short dense brown head that settles into a light ring.

The aroma is sweet and roasty. Not overly roasty but has some woody notes. Some vanilla or caramel but its subtle. Light raisin notes. Mellow.

The taste is big on the roast but is quickly mellowed by what seems to be milk sugars. The roasted bitterness then quickly returns. Bitterness is a touch harsh. There is some caramel. Some powdery chocolate. The is a bright fruit sweetness which I assume is from the raisins.

The feel is moderate almost light. The carbonation is quite soft. Sweet but mostly bitter on the palate. I would think the oat would smooth out the bitterness but no. Slightly sticky in the finish.

A good stout. I thought I would like it more than I did. It's a tad thin.

This one pours a full bodied dark chocolate brown in color with no head or lacing. The nose is big, fudgy, with a good amount of roast and a touch of alcohol. The flavors follow suit. There is a lot of sweet and bitter chocolates. I don't get anything that I could attribute to raisins though. It does drink full in bodied, and more is a little smoother than the other Yetis. Overall this is a nice beer, and sounds amazing on paper, but. Don't think it really offers anything different than the other Yetis.

Pours thick jet black in color with a rich dark brown head. No light makes it through, this is a dark stout.

Nose is really great, deep dark malt that has a mild chat to it. Raisins are definitely present in the nose along with hints of oat. There is a nice booziness that helps bring it all together.

Taste is dominated by roasted malts and a very subtle hop spice. Raisins are subtle and oat is not very prevalent. More raisin flavor comes out at it warms.

Mouthfeel is thick and sticky with mild carbonation. Velvety, Perfect for and imperial stout.

Overall this was a great stout however I would have like a little more oatmeal in the taste, I feel it was overpoweder by the rich roasted malt. Other then that it was nicely
Balanced.
