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.

22 oz bottle into a tulip. From yesterday. A: Pours a nearly pitch black color with a LOT of sediment at the bottom of the glass. A mocha shaded head thatís one finger high crowns the body. It retains acceptably (Iíve seen better, though) with little lacing left behind. S: Lots of dark chocolate. Wow. As brilliantly chocolaty as it is, itís backed up by many other rock-solid notes, like dark fruit, roast, and savory malt. Not a hint of alcohol anywhere. This smells absolutely fantastic. T: At first, the chocolate notes are divine. They really are. A midtaste of subtle fruit turns into a roasty finish helping to balance all of that dark chocolate flavor. Hops are negligible, expected given its age. After several ounces, though, it seems to take a turn for the worse. The bread notes from the yeast combine with a budding leathery flavor to make the brew slightly undesirable after a long period of resting. Iíd give it a lower score, but the first few ounces were easily a 4.5 - so rather than downrate it horribly, Iíd say just share it with a few people instead. Problem solved. M: This is where Iím most let down. Instead of the luscious, full creaminess of regular Yeti, it feels thin and somewhat insubstantial. Itís adequately soft, sure, but in no way supports the flavors sufficiently enough. For something that isnít superbly drinkable, it should feel more decadent. O: Like the other Yeti variants, this is absolutely a quality brew. But after a while, the aftertaste kills it for me - which is a damn shame, because everything else about the flavors are fantastic. The weak body doesnít help. A great one to share, but probably my least favorite Yeti.

"Awesome!!! Where chocolate yeti came up just a little bit short, this one did not. not very belgian right out of the gate. maybe that will change over time, but the chocolate roastiness of this beer is simply out of this world. the hops seemed to be toned down to the point that i question if this has the same ibus as original yeti. velvety smooth, no heat, and deeeelicious. if i really wanted a belgian iíd be disappointed, but as a stout - just amazing. THIS is what i wanted ommegang chocolate indulgence to be, and indulgent is the word that best descibes this beer. chocolate up front in the nose and flavor with a hint of fruity belgian yeast and spice only as it warms, and even then, pretty subtle. more sweet than bitter. one of smoother stouts iíve ever had. 2012 - had 2 or 3 and it has not aged well. chocolate goes bye bye and yeast gets a little funky. not nearly as good as when fresh

Big bottle.. Big roasted malt, vanilla, nut aromas, with some hints of Belgium yeast in background. Creamy texture. Cocoa flavors. Heavy body. Minty notes with some vanilla and clove. Pretty complex and good.

Pour is black with a small amount of milky brown head. Nose has a light roast, hints of licorice and tobacco, and fruity esters. Taste has a bit more malt, light roast, some rich milk chocolate, a bit of sweet fruitiness in back. The Belgian yeast doesnít really make a huge impact. May add some fruitier notes not typically in an imperial stout. It isnít a sugary malt or a dark berry. Seems well attenuated, clean, full bodied, and moderate carbonation.

65 cl bottle @ PBF IX.
Pours pitch black color with a nice large beige head. Roasted malts and some faint yeast notes on the aroma, some chocolate, cocoa, and some faint ashy notes. Roasted malty flavor, some chocolate, cocoa, some wooden notes and mild yeasty spiciness. Iíd rather drink my Yeti without the belgian elements (though they are very faint here). Very nice anyway.

Bottled 650ml (BBE 2012, PBF IX)
Dark opaque color, brown head. Sticky toasted, some "vintage" cardboardish notes. Full-bodied. Sticky, toasted, vanilla, caramel. Belgian yeastyness gives some fruityness. Normal Yeti is better.
