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, youíll be a believer, too.

Deep black-brown in color with a tan head. Aroma is chocolatey-roasty with a slight Belgian yeast tones. Deep chocolate-coffee with those Belgian yeast tones.

Ibrew2or3 (6779) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Foil covered pry off bomber pours nice and dark with mocha head. The aroma offers up bold buttery dark chocolate fudge, dark roasted malts, some burnt malts and a rich chocolate milk shake, wow! The taste does not disappoint with chocolate, fudge brownie, dark roasted malts and sliding into a modest level of burnt malt notes. Swimming around the rich maltiness are light notes of Belgian yeasty spices. This stays yummy and rich right into the finish. It is strange that itís like twice the price of the regular Yeti when it seems the yeast is the only difference.

after4ever (6068) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2011
22, capped and foiled. Black with a dense and creamy tan head that falls away quickly. Loose spotty lacing. Big chocolate and spice nose, very integrated, like a deluxe gourmet chocolate bar thatís supposed to be that way. Thick creamy body, almost sticky but not quite. Chocolate, coffee, and dark roasty spices on the mid palate. Very convincing big stout. Could easily be a go-to big dark beer when the price is appealing.

A: Pours a nearly impenetrable black color with a finger of white head. S: Heavy on the roasted malt aromas with lots of chocolate and vanilla. There is some licorice and burnt sugar, too. I donít really get all that much "Belgian" character from it. Mostly just the intense stout aroma. T: Not much difference on the flavor. Sweeter than I seem to remember the other Yeti variants being. Lots of dark chocolate and molasses with a bit of licorice. There is a good bit of vanilla, a mild spice, and maybe some yeast. M: Medium to full in body with a medium carbonation. O: A nice beer, though not overtly "Belgian".

Tap. Pours opaque with a medium, creamy brown head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy roast, chocolate, and nutty malt, light Belgian yeast, light smoke, oak, and earthy hops. Flavor is heavy nutty, chocolate, and roast malt, Belgian yeast and a sweet finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

alexsdad06 (5320) - Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Draft sample @ Jackie Oís. Pours dark brown with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits with an increased spiciness from the Belgian yeast. The flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits and spicy yeast. I thought this was decent enough, but still prefer the regular version better.

Props to Great Divide and the line of Yeti - will try this again as it might surpass oak as my fav; for now ranking this one tick below oak. In comparing to the other Yetiís: still a black pour with beige head; aroma is a little more subdued with addition of belgian yeast aroma. Taste to me is more subdued and smoother than the other yetiís - no alcohol in flavor at all (impressive for 9.5% alcohol). Taste is sweet up front with hints of belgian ale - spiciness popping up during taste. I dismissed this as a crazy idea; but damn it works well. bottled on 11/18/2011.

Black in color, tan colored head. Dark. The smell is malts, coffee, roasty, chocolate, burnt, fruits, and good. The taste is sweeter, coffee, malts, burnt, roasty, fruits, spice, and good.
