Deep dark toasty, hoppy stout with coffee and bitter dark chocolate notes. Somewhat buttry. Cookie grain notes in the background and decently concealed alcohol.

Better than the Imperial Stout IMO. Yeti's Oatmeal stout brings home a richer and smoother flavor than the original. Dark flavorful malts with a dark khaki colored froth. Delicious to every last drop. And the idea of roasting with raisins really nailed it with the Oatmeal and caramel wrapped in hints of dark chocolate flavors. This is like candy for the taste buds but with a monster ale punch. Yum!

June 2013 bottle - Opened September 2014

Completely black. No light through glass at all. Light brown head. Lacing on glass.

Aroma is heavy espresso and chocolate. Some dark fruits on background, but they are really overpowered by the coffee and chocolate. Booze on the nose as well.

Taste: chocolate and espresso with some dark fruits and raisins. The back end is pretty boozy, however. A little more boozy, especially at room temp., than I prefer. Even after a year, this is still a very boozy stout. That said, exceptional taste overall. If you like your stouts a bit boozy, this would be no problem for you at all.

Excellent mouth feel. Rich. Thick. Creamy. Coats the mouth. Very nice.

Overall, this is another nice Yeti stout. A very excellent beer, but again, a bit boozy for me. I probably wouldn't drink this again right away. I have another bottle I'll let sit for a while, maybe let the heat settle a bit before another go-around.

Poured from a a bomber into an Innis and gunn thistle.

Pours black in color with a nice thicker, creamy mocha colored head. Decent lacing.

Smell is roasted malt, chocolate, and dark fruit. As the beer warmed up a little bit, the raisins really began to shine through on the nose more

Taste begins with a roasted malt sweetness with some hints of caramel. Moves into a bittersweet dark chocolate flavor that dominates and continues on the finish as well as being joined by a rich dark fruit flash right at the end. As the beer warms, the roasted malt takes a backseat to the dark chocolate and the dark fruit/raisin.

Mouthfeel is still fairly rich and creamy. Creamier than a standard yeti, but still just as rich.

Overall I give the beer a 4.33. Big, rich, and very good.
