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.

Tap pours dense black, dense roasted smell, very good beer with solid yeti notes but with a fruitiness that stands out. Plum, red apple, coffee, honey like sweetness, light grainy bitterness and a some pine that builds with warmth. Good but not amazing a little too all over the place. Solid brew.

On tap at the GABF after party. Pours a pure black hue with a medium brown head. The aroma is sweet and dry roasted cocoa and some banana and pepper. The flavor is a mellowed down Yeti with honey, dry yeast, some roast and chocolates, spicier than the original of course and some fruity banana esters. Quite easy to drink and nice.

Liquid coal pour with a 1-finger latte head that left some sticky lacing. Aroma of cocoa, fresh brewed coffee, dark fruit, and bready yeast. Flavor also has a Belgian influence accompanied by chocolate and licorice. Thicker mouthfeel...a bit chewy!

Lubiere (10438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2011
A deep dark stout with a thin light mocha head. In aroma, smooth chocolate and floral hops, with smooth Belgian yeasts. In mouth, a nutty chocolaty malt, a bit of soy, not bad. Bottle at St-Bock’s 5th Anniversary, Oct. 15 2011.

22oz, bottled 6/17/2011. Solid black color, minimal beige head. A ring of spotty lace. Like the regular yeti, this is a delicious, big chocolate/coffee stout... But this has an odd twist to it that’s hard to describe (I guess the mysteriousness is in the spice and fruit notes, judging from the informative label. I like it). Makes it interesting. Some hops. A nice, quick warmth through the finish. Very light carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Easy to drink, very smooth. Nice complex bitter, then sweet, then savory taste. The 9.5% ABV is hardly discernible in this. I wouldn’t mind if the flavor was even bigger, I think. For one of the less-popular versions of Yeti, this is still a really impressive imperial stout. "Belgian" things are usually a bit much for me, but I think it complements the Yeti wonderfully.

Pours a very dark chocolate brown color that appears pitch black and opaque in the glass with a two finger mocha colored head that has good retention, slowly fading into a thick lasting ring. Rings and streaks of lace left behind. Roasted malt aroma with a decent amount of spice and dark fruit to balance out the darker notes. Hints of chocolate, coffee bean, toffee and slight burnt toast smell without being acrid. Silky chocolate is the most dominat character but is countered by spices and Belgian yeast, giving off hints of dark fruit and pepper. Medium bodied but slightly chewy and on filler end with a balance of zesty spice, silky sweet and sweet malt as well as sweetness from the yeast. Up front there is some zesty, peppery spice and a strong sweetness of dark fruit. Hints of plum, raisin and grape linger with the spice into the finish. Underneath there is an interesting malt profile with a nice balance of silky sweetness and roasted notes. Hints of dark chocolate, coffee bean, burnt toast and caramel. Well balanced but the belgian yeast presence is a bit strong for me. Luckily the roasted character provides balance without being to acrid/burnt or overpowering. Pretty good.

This brew is a classic. All intended features shine well above average. What I like about this one is how drinkable it is. A serious I.S. yet classy and with finesse if you will. This will please the proponent while rendering a sense of ease and light footedness. I could have served myself a second bottle. A Yeti with a shave and tie. Beautiful beer, perfect.

Bottle. First off, I’m a little hesitant as I am not the biggest fan of belgian style imperial stouts but I’ll give a try nonetheless. Pours a dark brown with a dark tan head. The begian yeast dominate the head to give off a roasty fruit like aroma. Medium mouthfeel. The roast stands out quite a bit for me and the carbonation is a litte high too. Overall, for me this beer just doesn’t do it for me.

JStax (3234) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Poured on draft into a a snifter. Appearance is black with a tan to purple colored head of foam. Aroma is licorice, dark roast coffee, a light ester presence, and some dark chocolate. Taste is bitter dark chocolate and coffee, with the licorice and Belgian influence coming in faintly toward the bitter finish. Not my favorite of the Yetis.
