Appearance - Pours jet black with a cocoa powder colored finger width head. Fair retention leads to a thin layer of surface suds and a thick ring around the edge of the glass. Nice lacing around the glass with good stick.

Smell - Prominent oatmeal aroma, while lesser notes of chocolate make up the bulk of what's left. Hints of roast and fruity dark raisin.

Taste - Smooth and heavily influenced by the oatmeal when cold, but opens up beautifully once warmed. Heavy chocolate and coffee flavor upfront, but is fairly met by some oatmeal character to tide over the rough roasted bitterness. Raisin somewhat comes through toward the finish with darkened sweetness, but that lovely dark and roasty bitterness prevails.

Mouthfeel - Full-bodied with low carbonation. Silky smooth delivery, going down with ease before a drying finish.

Overall - Good. Really good. Drinks somewhere between Rogue's Shakespeare Stout and North Coast's Old Rasputin. Why do I even bother putting impy stouts in the fridge? They are so much better once they hit room temp!

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!
