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.

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 don’t 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.

Draft sample @ Jackie O’s. 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 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.

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.
