3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Roasted malt aroma with a very mild fruity undertone. Didn’t 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. Didn’t really get much Belgian yeast, but the stout’s still really nice.

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

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.

Thinner than I expected, not a full mouth feel for a stout or Imperial. Coffee nose, not very bitter.

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.
