COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Style Yeti is a delicious new blend of brewing techniques - all the malt-driven roastiness of our Yeti Imperial Stout with characteristic spice and fruit notes imparted by our special Belgian yeast strain. Belgian Style Yeti is a one-of-a-kind beer as mysterious as the mythical creature himself. Impossible? See for yourself, you’ll be a believer, too.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, - JUL 13, 2012
On tap at Csakajósör, Budapest. Opaque, black color with creamy, dark brown head. The odor is a bit coffee. Spicy, resiny aroma at the beginning. Later the malt and the yeast appears with fruity, grainy and chocolate flavours. Very rich and creamy aroma. The, bitter, dark chocolate is the most dominant flavour. The hops play a "supprt role", and it’s does it very good. The high alcohol content is well hidden. It has full body, creamy, oily texture and light carbonation. It’s a very well balanced beer with intensive fruit and chocolate aroma. Strong but "coordinated" beer. It’s a very good decision. It’s a bit lighter, but more fruity than the original Yeti.

cpetrone84 (1330) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pour is black with a small amount of milky brown head. Nose has a light roast, hints of licorice and tobacco, and fruity esters. Taste has a bit more malt, light roast, some rich milk chocolate, a bit of sweet fruitiness in back. The Belgian yeast doesn’t really make a huge impact. May add some fruitier notes not typically in an imperial stout. It isn’t a sugary malt or a dark berry. Seems well attenuated, clean, full bodied, and moderate carbonation.

olio (5936) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
65 cl bottle @ PBF IX.
Pours pitch black color with a nice large beige head. Roasted malts and some faint yeast notes on the aroma, some chocolate, cocoa, and some faint ashy notes. Roasted malty flavor, some chocolate, cocoa, some wooden notes and mild yeasty spiciness. I’d rather drink my Yeti without the belgian elements (though they are very faint here). Very nice anyway.

TBone (12458) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottled 650ml (BBE 2012, PBF IX)
Dark opaque color, brown head. Sticky toasted, some "vintage" cardboardish notes. Full-bodied. Sticky, toasted, vanilla, caramel. Belgian yeastyness gives some fruityness. Normal Yeti is better.

laiti (5556) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
65 cl bottle @ PBF Ⅸ, BBE 2012
Aroma has cocoa and some dark chocolate. Feels sweet. Flavour has soy sauce, salty licorice, dark chocolate and cocoa. The belgian sourness tries to ruin the Yeti here.
