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.

(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.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2013 On draft at Good Beer. Sweetness, smoke, raisins, molasses, black cherry, and a coffee finish. BY is very rich and the flavor is top shelf. Excellent brew, and one of my favorites from Great Divide.

onceblind (4066) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Pitch black with a lingering dark beige head. Has a deep roasty chocolate aroma with a light fruityness that is enchanting, dark malts, molasses, classic Yeti complexity. Flavor is a full palate bomb, like all Yetis and any good impy stout. Deep big smoky chocolate, molasses, with a nice light fruity middle. Typical Yeti with someinteresting mild fruit tones in the middle, but something just doesnít excite me. Maybe itís not fruity enough? I dunno. Itís outstanding, but expected.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine - Pours a dark brown color with a one finger thick tan head. Light, tiny spotted lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and a hint of yeast. Well, flavor is much of the same. However, I get some lingering esters in the finish. Medium to full body. A good beer, but I think the regular Yeti is better.

BBB63 (6038) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle and served in another Duvel snifter: Nearly opaque minus the amber highlights around the edges, small but lasting frothy beige head and good lace. The aroma has notes of toffee, coffee, roast, char, grains of paradise, bakers chocolate, molasses, dirty cellars, and some tobacco. Some Belgian yeast earthiness but not enough to counteract the lack of hops for complexity. The taste is more of the same, sort of dull honestly. Simple sugars, molasses, caramel, chocolate, vanilla but without a hop bitterness to kick it into gear. At least the Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti had the peppery note to help it, this just lays there wanting to be abused. The Belgian yeast character needs to either be more dominate or not be here at all, right now it is sort of a stick in the mud. The mouth feel is more of the same, lame and oily. This brew lacks any definition and is an letdown to the Yeti lineup. Mikey is sad.

TheJestersBeer (2060) - SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2011
650ml bottle. (Rating #300) Black with dark brown tinge, brown head. Very rich aroma, lots of roasted malts, smoke, dark chocolate, coffee beans, earth, yeast, mint, charcoal. Off-dry, full bodied and then some, high bitterness, balanced CO2. Rich beyond belief. Roasted malts, chocolate, ground coffee beans, ashes, smoke, charcoal, yeast, earth, faint hops, extremely smooth. For heavenís sake, Mr Yeti - take me home and marry me!!! (2011-09-08)

italianjohn (2337) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Pitch black pour thin tan head light sticky lacing .... aroma is a mix of chocolate and fruity belgian yeast which was actually not bad at all ... taste is the same chocolately and fruity berry like with a dry roasted feel ... bitter dark chocolate and roasted caramel malts in there as well with a bitter hop in the finish dry and tasty brew .... definitely changes the flavor slightly but not offensive at all ... really good brew

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Draft sample. Poured a black color with a large frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy sweet roasted black coffee malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good beer.

johno (185) - Galveston, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Pours dark espresso brown/black with dark tan head. A relatively subdued aroma, pleasant, cocoa, dried fruit, rock candy, coffee.. upon tasting its big, some not unpleasant heat, warming, bittersweet, creamy.. quite good, though the aroma and flavors donít quite pop enough to warrant a huge score.
