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.

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.

Fresh aromas with the sweet phenols of a tripel and the rough-hewn yeast of a saison. The raisin, milk and then dark chocolates, and cafe-au-lait flavors of the beer then come as a bit of a surprise. More careful tasting reveals little Belgian touches in the beer: smooth finish, slick palate, clean, citric hops, and a delicate floral note right in the heart of the profile. This is unquestionably an American beer, but it tastes like a first generation version of stout. Really interesting and delicious.

Pours a deep, rich black with a nice olive-green head. Aroma is bready coffe with a hint of caramel and chocolate raisin. Flavor is chocolate bean coffee with caramel and toasted chocolate bread. Thick mouthfeel. Wow. Very tasty.

dfinney23 (1651) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Pours stout black with a thick tan head. Outstanding aroma of chocolate, coffee, malt and smoke. Flavor is disappointingly weak in comparison.

beersearcher (2334) - Glendale, California, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Pours dark black and looks really viscous in the glass. Aroma is primarily coffee with a touch of funky to it. Taste is big, big tobacco. Not much heat but the cheeks are warming.

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 15, 2011
22oz bottle: Pours an oily opaque black with a spotty-lacing ring of beige head. Has a sweet toasty dark caramel and chocolate nose with some light fruity esters and roasty coffee notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet sticky dark caramel and roasted malts with a touch of raisins and brown sugar along with bready yeasty notes before a slightly drier, smoky dark chocolate finish. Could be a little smoother and more complex, but still pretty tasty.

(22oz, bottled Jul 19 2011) Pours an opaque black body with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, grass, orange, and Belgian yeast. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, grain, raisins, nuts, and toasted grain. My least favorite Yeti to date.
