BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Great Divide Brewing Company
Colorado, United States
greatdivide.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Much like its legendary predecessors, this Yeti is big, bold and dark. The addition of rolled oats softens Yeti’s notoriously roasty backbone and the small amount of raisins added in the brew kettle create a unique dark fruit character. Just as admired as those that came before it, Oatmeal Yeti Imperial Stout is a gentle beast.

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.

Very underwhelmed. Thin feeling and taste heavy of wood. Not something I would really go out of my way for again.
