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.

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 Yeti’s: 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 yeti’s - 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.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small frothy tan head. Aroma has some light roasty notes, stale piney hops, very simple. Crystal malt, hard roast, oxidized piney hops, bitter black malt, bit tannic, not really getting the Belgian part, just a light bit of plum, not a very good yeti. Medium body, glassy thin with prickly carbonation.

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.

Goodgrief (1782) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 23, 2011
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.

rader58 (775) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 23, 2011
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.
