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.

HonkeyBra (3798) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown, near black, with a thick tan head. Big dark chocolate aroma, with some caramel, from which the Belgian yeast peaks out showcasing pepper and some estery notes. Flavor has a lot of dark chocolate. Some chocolate syrup. There is also some caramel, peanut butter. Some mild pepper and hay. The Belgian notes in the finish are kind of off. Full bodied, mild carbonation. This gets really weird towards the finish.

Matts_Property (830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2011
Sampled on tap at PIB. Pours a solid black colour with a small caramel head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel. Flavour is heavily dark chocolate, with some yeast, oak , caramel and whiskey thrown into the mix. Smooth mouth feel with a bitter finish. Oddly balanced.

Headbanger (3542) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2011
750ml bottle 7/18/11 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-44° in Snifter-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.

portableparty (2104) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle to snifter. Pours classic Yeti style oily brown black with a redish tan head that fades to a thin collar. Aroma is dark fruit coco and roasted malt and rasins. Taste is bitter and hints of rasins roasted malt and funky Belgian yeast. Palate is full and slick with a dry finish. The whole Belgian yeast kick in imperial stouts I could do without. Still this is worth a try and is interesting.

thornecb (4875) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Pours black into a snifter. Mocha conglomerate head with excellent retention recedes leaving scant sheets. Earthy anise aromas. Sweet anise and toasted marshmallows upfront turning to chocolate before the lasting s’mores finish.

RSRIZZO (1900) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2011
22oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 45°. Color is a deep black with good carbonation and a thin tight brown head. Aroma is a sweet deeply roasted scent with a faint banana note in the back. It has a full body that gives a rich mouth feel. Flavor of coffee, dried fruit and toffee, then a little hop flavor shows with a mellow bitterness. After taste is cleaner then you would except from an Imperial Stout letting just a hint of the Belgian yeast come through in the end. Overall its a great brew, I was hoping the Belgian flavor would have come out a little more but still a very tasty brew.

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Tap @ Portland International Beer Fest... Poured black with a light brown head. Initial flavors of oak and chocolate. I couldn’t detect much in a Belgian Yeast flavors. However it did seem to have dried out compared to other Yeti examples. Some roast, vegetable-root bitterness, licorice, and molasses. Some alcohol heat towards the finish.

22 ounce bottle, bottled on June 17, 2011. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch light brown head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, dark fruit, charred/burnt malt and some bananas. The brew tastes like bittersweet chocolate, dark fruit (plums, cherries), charred/burnt malt, coffee, and a bit of pine hops and bananas. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. It’s pretty smooth and very easy to drink. I think the Belgian yeast in this brew is subtle, but that certainly doesn’t hurt the beer at all. It’s a good overall brew.

mcberko (9732) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2011
On tap at PIB, pours black with a tan head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, sweetened roasted malt, oak, and vanlla. Flavour of oak, vanilla, Belgian yeast, chocolate and a little coffee. Much of the complexity and depth of the original Yeti is lost here. Oily, sweet palate and sweet finish. Probably the worst Yeti I’ve had, though still solid.

3fourths (8639) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2011
cocoa, milk, chocolate malt, eggshell yeast, cheese-like, but not funky, simply fatty and somewhat lactic. but the body is still nourishingly full and firm.
