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.

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.

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.

ReggieDunlap (3048) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2011
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.

Bottle, black pour with a small tan head. Sweet and sugary, heavily roasted, chocolate, molasses, and a bit of belgiany spice. Nice silky mouthfeel. Quite a nice stout, I wouldn’t mind drinking this again.

Tap @ the brewery. Pours a pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and slight Belgian. Taste of the same with a bit more Belgian coming through on the front end and the back end. This full bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. Nice job.

2011-08-19. Black body with a nice tan head and lace. Modest roast, sweet yeasty notes and dark malt in the aroma. 7+ Flavour is similar, mild yeast, sweet dark malt, mild roast. 7+ Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate. Simple but pretty nice, I think I prefer the original Yeti. On tap Coles, Buffalo

rougeau13 (1987) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Black, like any yeti, with a moderate light brown head that fades to a thick ring and leaves a small amount of lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, funky Belgian yeast, roasted malt and anise. The taste is big; chocolate and coffee with a bit of wood smoke; big and malty, a touch sweet, and finishing with a nice calm bitterness. Full bodied, oily and smooth, and dry with a slight alcohol sensation, though the alcohol is very well masked throughout the various elements of the beer. I prefer the non-Belgian Yetis, but this is quite nice. The yeast is a much more subtle aspect of the beer than it is in many "Belgian" stouts, IPAs, etc. That’s a good thing.

Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of chocolate, malt, roasting, slight vanilla, and a hint of coffee. Poured pitch black in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout. Opaque. Lightly sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, roasting, slight Belgian yeast, slight coffee, chocolate, slight cream, and some lactose. Medium to full body. Lightly dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Roasted malt, chocolate, slight hops, cream, lactose, slight coffee finish is slightly dry. 9.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Draft at Thirsty Monk. Just like all of the Yeti offerings, this is a solid brew. Enjoyed the yeast strain twist on this. If you dig the abominable snowman, gotta try this version.
