Brewed by:
Great Divide Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours pitch black, as one would expect, but there is little head and no persistence; quickly fades to a ringlet though the streaky lacing is impressive

Smell: Chocolate, roast, ash and a hint of raisin

Taste: Chocolate fudge, up front, with a growing roasty bitterness building through the mid-palate, when the raisins add a fruity aspect; the oatmeal raisin cookie adds a nice dimension to the finish, though the harsh, ashy bitterness lingers in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with moderate carbonation; considerable burn in the gullet

Overall: A huge stout with a lot of flavor; my bottle is just under five months old but I imagine the drinking would be spectacular in about a year; just a bit raw in its youth
