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.

opaque black , small tan head, nice lacing though no retention... roast cream fruits belg yeast creamed coffee... lively creamy medium body warming on the back end... very very fruity dry finish belg yeast roast coffee, but the fruitiness dominates... dry dry finish... odd, worth trying but not as refined as the other yetis

(draught) jet black with tan head. Nose of chocolate malt, fudge, and a hint of raisin. Taste of raisin, dark chocolate, caramel, other dark fruits. Interesting take but maybe the weakest of the yetis.

22 oz bomber. Pours a black cola with a thick and creamy light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and Belgian yeast. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, Belgian yeast and cocoa powder.

Thinner than I expected, not a full mouth feel for a stout or Imperial. Coffee nose, not very bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle. Poured a dark, black color with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is roasted, notes of dark chocolate, touch of Belgian yeast. Flavor was coffee notes, chocolate, touch of funky Belgian yeast, roasted malts. This one was highly drinkable, enjoyable. The Belgian character was a lot more mellow than I normally expect from a "Belgian style" beer.

Chocolate in the nose. Pours a dark brown with an off white head. Pure chalky chocolate milkshake taste. This beer is really chocolatly and slightly sweet. The Belgian yeast’s presence is felt in the texture, if that makes sense. This is a solid stout, if a bit under attenuated. Good stuff.

On tap @ MacGregors Penfield: Black beer, frothy head. Roasty nose, chocolate covered banana too...chalky cocoa flavors, touch powdery too. Belgian influence shows up in the finish making it all too chalky...was hoping the malitiness would hide the yeast strain if it was a heavy spicey one, which it was...but it doesn’t hide it enough unfortunately.

Pour is a jet black with a small tan head. Nose is of dark fruits and chocolate mostly. Taste is very much the same, with the fruit I suppose best being described as specifically from the yeast, and the chocolate obviously from the malty characterful. A novelty done well for a while, rather nice.

kidmartinek (3507) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Very dark. Tan head. The aroma is tame but has a slight tartness, oakiness, and cocoa character. The taste has many qualities which all contribute to the impeccable enjoyment of this beer. 9.5 is nowhere to be found. Its smooth and mellow, chocolately and bitter, and has a nice refreshing bite. This beer erases the mistakes on the palate of the last beer you drank that wasn’t as good as this one. This beer has a cool auora. It’s good. Drink it.

Pours black with a medium light mocha head...nice lacing. Aroma is subtle but has roastiness, chocolate, anise...odd spiciness...hint of fruitiness. Flavor is roasty and chocolatey but has frutiness that seems out of place...some odd clovey notes and a bit of a metallic taste...dry almost chalky. Mouthfeel is creamy and on the lighter side for the style...finish lingers with roasty fruitiness.
