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.

Tasted on 7/29/11 on draft at Local Option. Pours jet black with an average tan head that displays great retention, leaving a nice layer of even lace. The nose is darkly roasted with tons of dark chocolate, coffee, and the Belgian yeast providing banana and dried fig fruitiness. The flavor is sweet with dark chocolate up front, moving to the fruity banana and dried fig fruity yeast, with a solid dose of coffee bitterness on the back. The body is full with just lighter than average carbonation, and a long dark chocolate and bitter coffee finish.

Bottle:   Yep, thats black alright.   Sediment shows itself on the bottom of the glass, moderate to large brownish head, fairly nice lacing.   Pale musty roasted malts.   Not as strong in the Belgian sense that I thought.   Malts are heavy, hops are light.   The aroma somewhat reminds me of really old stale chocolate.   Luckily on the tongue its a bit more vibrant.   Very smooth, not heavy.   I was putting this off thinking it would be a sugar bomb, but its not.   Its not overly roasty, nor overly hoppy.   Really well balanced, great mouthfeel, and very clean on the exit.   A little bit of dark pitted fruit, mainly sweet prune, show up on the exit.   Its like a chocolate milkshake with some dark pitted fruit.   Better than I expected!

Sampled side by side with the regular yeti down at obx. Has an identical beautiful black pour with dark brown head. Nose on the belgian has a distinct fruity ester to it, something like mango underlying the intense roasty vanilla character. Flavor also has that distinct belgian yeast character, though it is not ’yeasty’. It is a little sweeter than the regular as well. Same great chewy creamy body. Actually, side by side with this particular bottle of regular yeti (which was very young and still had a lot of the alcohol heat) I preferred this version, but I think aged, I would prefer the orignal.

22 oz. bottle from Table and Vine. Snifter showed minimal beige head with spotty lace. Nose is interesting mix of chocolate malt and fruit esters. Aroma’s remind me of a Tripple but with chocolate malt. uh? Roasted malts, raisins, sugar, along with Belgian yeast notes. Fuller body. Texture is creamy. I don’t detect the ABV. Wow, I would love to get this on draught. Really tasty. Not my favorite Yeti but still nice and well worth what you pay.

Strykzone (5350) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Sampled at an esbls tadting. I brought it. Very dark with minimal tan head. Dark chocolate and fruit aroma. I keep trying to taste Belgian notes and thatbis light. More chocolate and beans. Citrus hops are mildly bitter. Like all of the Yetis this is very good. Belgian notes are scarce bur who cares.

bottle. pours a nice black with a generous mocha head. Great aroma. dark fruits, molasses, slight spice. taste is thick and drawn out. Dried, dark fruits are prominent with an almost smokey aftertaste. i did not have high hopes for this one but it delivered. Very nice if you like funkier stouts.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Draft at the Nook. Black in the glass with a creamy tan head that had a thin layer lasting a left good lacing. Roasted malt aroma with a slight yeasty backing. The flavor found dark chocolate, coffee, roast, light hop and light yeast. Medium body and a coffee/roast aftertaste.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2012 Poured from a 650ml bottle bottled on Jun 17, 2011 into a tulip glass.

A: Opaque black or deep deep brown with a thin dark caramel colored head.

S: Very complex dark fruits and belgian yeast with chocolate roast smell. Rather strong as well.

T: Thick chocolate forefront which leads into a fruity finish with a slight spice note to it, similar to allspice. I can’t place my finger on the fruit unfortunately, but this is very tasty.

M: Thick and creamy without much carbonation.

O: This beer is very good, an excellent blend of thick chocolate with a fruity finish and spice notes. This is even better considering I’m enjoying it on a chilly deck watching the stars.

Pours dark brown with khaki head. Aromas of burnt malts and dark chocolate with a hint of the Belgian yeast. Roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate flavors with some doughy yeast and a little ashy. Its a little weird but I like it. Full body with soft carbonation.

gyllenbock (5562) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2011
Bottle from Binny’s Beverage Depot - Downtown, Chicago. Black with a small, creamy tan head. Not as heavy as expected. The aroma was on the sweet side with coffee, dried fruits, some "milky" notes. The taste was dry with roasted malt, nuts and some soy. Easy to drink, good but not excellent stuff.
