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.

Bottle pours a jet black brew with thin brown head. Scent is roasty with chocolate and dark fruit notes. Taste is dark chocolate with a hint of spice. Good stuff

draft - Pours black with a lingering tan head. It has an assertive roast chocolate aroma. There’s a big chocolate malt flavor with plenty of dark roast taste, a bit of licorice, and apparent Belgian yeast, particularly in the livelier carbonation than is found in most imperial stouts and a light underlying fruitiness. Delicious!

Funky notes in the roasty body. Middernag swart with medium beige head. Roast aroma. Lovely. Worth seeking out.

On tap. Man, this was REALLY good. Dark pour, ruby red highlights, fluffy head and great lacing. Rich cocoa and roast flavors with a great complementary fruity twist. Rich and full in the mouth. Excellent.

22oz bottle. Pours a dark black. Aroma of chocolate, toffee, vanilla, coffee and a slight hint of coriander. Flavor is coffee, spice, chocolate, dried fruit. Overall a nice stout that has a hint of spice and fruit, but I prefer the other incarnations of the Yeti to this one.

Good brew. Pours black with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is coffee and alcohol. Taste is coffee, chocolate and belgian yeast. Dry, slightly roasted finish.

The Belgian yeast takes over more than it compliments the beer. Added fruit notes and and baker’s chocolate powder flavor come out of it. Somwhat noticable hops in the background. Not as good as the original Yeti and gets somewhat old halfway through the bomber.

Bottle… Pours tar black with a small, creamy, well-tanned head. Fair retention. Spicy, fruity, chocolaty nose – pear and a hint of clove. Full-bodied and creamy with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is sweet, milk chocolaty, a touch fruity and a little spicy. Bittersweet finish.

My least favorite Yeti yet. I am not a big fan of using Belgian yeast in a beer that is not a Belgian style and this is no different. Aroma was deep roasted malt and coffee. Pour was a deep dark brown (near black) with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was nice. It was like a coffee bean covered in rich dark chocolate. Mouth feel was a little thin. Nice bitter coffee aftertaste. The Belgian yeast comes up in the aftertaste and add a spice and bubblegum flavor that, in my opinion, should not be in an imperial stout. Not a bad beer, though. Light carbonation.

Rated on 7/7/11, thick black pour, brown head, aroma is strong booze, chocolate and coffee, and the yeast is also quit present in aroma.very odd flavor,way off from what I was expecting,normal impy stout flavors are ther, rasty coffee/chocolate etc, but the belgian style yeast puts way too much funk in this brew for me. Im willing to try this again, but this first time, I am dissappointed.
