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.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Snifter. Bottled June 2011. Appearance: Pitch black with initial massive brown head and decent lacing for an Imperial Stout. Aroma: Mostly smells like a standard RIS (chocolate, coffee, molasses, licorice) with just a touch of fruity, musty and spicy Belgian yeast. Taste: Quite fruity overall, which plays very nicely over the roasted characteristics of milk chocolate, coffee and molasses. Ends slightly spicy. Palate: Full-bodied but not nearly as thick as other Yetis. Silky, smooth and creamy with moderate carbonation. Somewhat dry finish. Not at all harsh for a fresh Imperial Stout. Overall: Besides for the added fruitiness, this does not seem very Belgian. However, the yeast likely helped lighten and mellow the beer, as if it had been aged for years. Deliciousness incarnate.

(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Roasted malt aroma with a very mild fruity undertone. Didnít catch much in the way of spice. Flavor is roasty and fruity with some wine-like notes and a very subtle and light touch of yeast. Didnít really get much Belgian yeast, but the stoutís still really nice.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Draft @ redlight redlight. Spicy chocolate on the nose. Pours black with a tan head. Funky flavor, i feel like the Belgian yeast clashes with hops and bitter dark malts. Not favorite

(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.

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

radagast83 (5071) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2011
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.

MacBoost (1399) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2011
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 yeastís 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 doesnít hide it enough unfortunately.
