Oatmeal Yeti

There's this show on Animal Planet called Finding Bigfoot. It is, hands down, one of the dumbest reality shows ever. The show follows four "investigators" who travel about examining "compelling evidence" to try and "prove the existence of the elusive creature".  They scream, they whack trees, they freak out.

I got sucked into watching it one night and it was a like watching a train wreck. In my ever so humble opinion, the show is an unqualified, unscientific, subjective load of sasquatch poo.

The Yeti is the Tibetan version of the unsubstantiated American Bigfoot legend.

It is also a beer brewed by Great Divide. They brew Yeti Imperial Stout and assorted varieties of such.

Oatmeal Yeti (9.50% ABV ) pours deep and dark with a pillow thick foam that leaves behind lovely mocha colored lacing.

The aroma is roasty and sweet with notes of coffee, milk chocolate, and vanilla.

The taste is has the bittersweet qualities imparted by dark roasted malt. Fresh coffee, sweet chocolate, caramelized sugar. The hops are subtle and provide balance. The oats give this brew an incredible smooth palatability. The alcohol is well concealed (much like the Yeti the beer is named after). The finish is dark chocolate and char.

The mouth feel is thick, full, and creamy.

Oatmeal Yeti is a luscious beer drinking experience.

Overall: very good!
