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.

Sweet burned chocolate to the nose. Nice mouth fill. Burned chocolate taste aswell. Very nice IS, although not as good as the original Yeti.

A very good beer. Poured burnt brown with a thin brown head. Aroma: mild roasted malts, yeast, chocolate, coffee. Taste was the same, but with a fruit sweetness. Every thing was very well balanced.

650 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget and consumed on December 9. Pours pitch black with a thick creamy dark brown head that slowly dissipates leaving some lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet and yeasty and lacks the regular coffee and dark chocolate notes usually found in the yeti smell. Instead there’s sweet fruits and a floral note to the smell. Taste is very sweet with coffee, sweet chocolate, resin, hints of pine and some green chili. It’s not at all as robust as I would have expected instead the mouthfeel is rather thin. finish is sweet and slightly bitter with some coffee and cocoa.

Bottle. Black with a creamy light brown head. Aroma: roasted, fruity, vinous. Taste: roasted, chocolate liqueur, fruity, toffee, malty, dry, wood. Full-bodied, smooth. Interesting version, but not my favourite one.

Mad_Ferret (992) - SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2011
Bottle. Big roasty Yeti aroma of coffee, soy and chocolate clashes with a sweet fruity belgo yeast aroma of candy sugar, cookies and some anis. Quite the same in the taste. The old Yeti is there, but its sweeter with fruity and caramelly notes with some sweet licorice. Big body with soft carbonation. It’s like...theres old Yeti...and there is a sweet belgian triple. A bit weird, but still pretty good.

Jag anser att GDBC har lyckats med sin fusion. Jag uppfattade fruktiga element såsom fikon men även örtiga toner. Rostad malt och lång fin eftersmak med en bra balanserad beska. God som tusan men den bör avnjutas tillsammans med väl valt sällskap.

Poured into a snifter. Bottled June 17, 2011. 4.0 A: The Yetis are a damn fine looking group and this is no different. Black color. Two and a half fingers of creamy light brown head. The head seems to fall a good bit faster than the regular Yeti, but like the regular, plenty of lacing is left behind. 5.0 S: Glory be this is nice. The Belgian yeast combine with the base beer to give off an explosion of coffee. If I didn’t know better, I’d think I was smelling the espresso version. Deep roastiness is balanced equally intense milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, and dark fruitiness. There’s also a good bit of vanilla and an almost milk stout vibe. The Belgian component is complementary to the base flavors rather than the main attraction. 5.0 T: I guess it’s the Belgian yeast, but I’m getting the milk stout vibe again. It’s like a coffee creme stout featuring coffee, vanilla, lactose, and Yeti as the base. Anyway, the forementioned flavors work very well with the smooth roastiness and milk chocolate. Lots of caramel, molasses, and brown sugar and especially molasses (yep, twice). Again, the Belgian yeast offers complementary flavors to give this a new taste. 4.0 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Incredibly smooth with a vanilla roast aftertaste. Could be either a bit creamier or a bit thicker. 4.5 D: I haven’t had a Yeti in a while even though I love them, but I still think I can place this one atop all the others. Really fantastic beer.

rickgordon (3853) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2011
Bottled. Black colour, rich light brown head. Dark chocolate up front in aroma, followed by almond paste and light notes of compost-like Belgian yeast. Flavour and mouthfeel is heavy and less pronounced than the regular Yeti. The hop profile is toned down due to the yeast, which in itself is not that outspoken due to the "mish mash" of ingredients, that is no longer a great malt and hop-balance. The malt and the hop bill does not come through, and the beer becomes heavy and undecided. Pretty good beer, but having had the fantastic regular Yeti, this is an innovation that does not come out very well.

75cl bottle. Pours pitch black with a big brown head. Smells coffee and roasted malt. Tastes rich, creamy, coffee and roasted malt with a similar finish.

rlgk (18187) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle. Black, brown head. Roasted tar aroma, malty, chocolate, cocoa, some licorice, some belgoyeast notes, figs, coffee. Coffee flavor, roasted, smoked, tar, dark chocolate, hoppy bitter, figs, milk chocolate, . Wonderful body and a nice bitter tar finish with chocolate and cocoa. Not that much influences from Belgium, but who needs that in a wonderful beer like this.
