A little while ago, Beer Street Journal mentioned that Great Divide (Denver, CO) would announce a new “Yeti” in the infamous series. Looks like we have our answer- Oatmeal Yeti. The base beer for each of the Yetis is a big imperial stout. From there, coffee, chocolate, or special barrel aging occur to make each one unique. For Oatmeal Yeti, rolled oats and raisins allow this beast to stand out.
Much like its legendary precedessors, this Yeti is big, bold and dark. The addition of rolled out softens Yeti’s notoriously roasty backbone, and the small amount of raisins addin the brew kettle creates a unique dark fruit character. Just as admired as those that came before it, Oatmeal Yeti Imperial Stout is a gentle beast.
