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.

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.

Pours stout black with a thick tan head. Outstanding aroma of chocolate, coffee, malt and smoke. Flavor is disappointingly weak in comparison.

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 (7133) - 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.

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.

Black with a creamy tan head. Huge chocolate coffee and fruity Belgian yeast aroma and taste with a chocolate and cereal grain finish.

onceblind (5307) - 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 doesn’t excite me. Maybe it’s not fruity enough? I dunno. It’s outstanding, but expected.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2011
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 (6426) - 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.
