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.

Balanced, smooth, complex taste. Dark chocolate, delicate coffee, dried fruits, chocolate and fruit liqueur, plums, baked apples and pears, autumn fruits. Warming, long, sweet, slightly sour finish. Full body with low carbonation. Thick and oily texture. Great beer, well balanced. Drunk a 1 year after the deadline.

DrunkSanta410 (223) - Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle to glass, from the cellar. Vintage 2012 (June). Pours dark black, light brown head. Lots of sediment present. Aroma is coffee, chocolate malts and yeast. Taste is peppery / spicy yeast transitioning to black cofee and subtle dark chocolate notes. Toast. Definitely mellowed out during aging. Palate is syrupy, thick and slightly carbonated. Not my favorite yeti, but still good.

Ferris (3052) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle - Dark chocolate, fruit esters and yeast. Jet brown with a rich brown head. Dark chocolate and dark fruit. Sweet raisin, which reminds me of Cadbury fruit and nut. Belgian yeast adds a nice fruity aspect that I quite like.

McNeillR (1122) - SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Darker brown, more opaque than the others. Bowed lacing ringed head. Peppery yeast, tinfoil BBQ’d raisins and bananas. Bit more bready initial taste than the others, but not as much as I thought it would be. Spicy, sweetcorn brine, sweet jets of malt towards the middle. Mouthfeel is betwixt between rich sweetness and a bit of a let down thinness and in stark contrast to the other Yetis. Twitches of yeast on the finish, caramel flamed and delicate linger. Disappointing but this to complete the set.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle @Craig’s. Pours black, loved the spices coming through on the nose. On the palate, caramel, chocolate, molasses with a big fruit cake/Christmas spices thang going on. Loved the whole stout/belgian quad thing going on, so different to the original yeti.

MrFecesious (925) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2014
Shared 2012 bomber. Limited bubbly cap atop a brutally dark brown. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, coffee, attic dust, tea leaves, wood, and a touch of smoke. Taste is dry sweetness (tea sweet), and dark roast coffee bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel, and late LONG dry finish.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aromas are spicy Belgian yeast, light roasted malt, plums. Tastes nothing like the others, fruity and dark sugars. Light body, and finishes a bit thin too.

Has a funky smell to it that I?m not a fan. Taste is chocolatey but alright, dissappointed after the oak aged yeti.
