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.

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.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2011
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.

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.

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.

wedgie9 (2562) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2011
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!

Butters (4017) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2011
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.

AirForceHops (5659) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 24, 2011
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 (6172) - 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.
