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.

Bottle courtesy of Theydon Bois, cheers Colin, thank you very much! Had this Hastings campsite sat in Frank 03.05.13 Pours dark, dark brown with a very large tan foamy head. This is total indulgence, wonderfully roasty, soft with a thickness in the mouth and a lovely spiciness, alcohol shows but it is warming however it is not harsh at all. Chocolatey, soft spiciness in fact there is some cocoa powder. Lovely, lovrly beer. Rating on phone so not great. A8 A5 T9 P4 Ov17 4.3

Bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium creamy dark brown head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasty malts, a bit of ashtray, light anise. Flavor follows, light plus sweet, medium bitter, chocolate and roasty with light anise. Not much going on that is Belgian here. Medium body, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Nice as would be expected from the series.

Barwa: ciemna, wręcz czarna, nieprzejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana średniej wielkości, w odcieniach od beżowego do brązowego, ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie niskie, charakterystyczne dla tak mocnych piw, które trudno dobrze nagazować. Aromat: dość złożony i przyjemny, raczej wytrawny. Kawa mokka, czekolada (nie tylko gorzka), po chwili suszone śliwki, lekka paloność. Brak chmielu. Smak: słodko- gorzki. Wyraźnie wytrawny, czekoladowy, kawowy, owocowy. Pod koniec słodycz i pozostająca goryczka. Interesujący, choć ta owocowość trochę mi przeszkadza. Nie spotkałem się jeszcze z RIS-em, który by mi nie smakował. Tak jest też w tym przypadku, jednak wspomniane nuty owocowe trochę mnie drażnią. Może dlatego, że nie przepadam za suszonymi śliwkami. Być może wynika to z faktu, że termin jego przydatności do spożycia upłynął ponad rok temu. Z drugiej strony tak mocne i ciemne piwa raczej zyskują na leżakowaniu. Może wpływ ma tu zaznaczony w nazwie wariant belgijski. Reasumując piwo dobre, oleiste, raczej wytrawne, wielokrotnie nagradzane i z pewnością warte spróbowania. Jego dostępność w Polsce jest jednak bardzo... ograniczona. Osobiście zakupiłem je trochę przez przypadek. Ogólnie nie żałuję, choć nie jest to piwo na co dzień, tak ze względu na moc, jak i na cenę.

GraveAtSea (129) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Black color with light brown, durable foam. Wonderfull, intense and rich aroma. Dried fruits, plums, dark chocolate, chicory/grain coffee, porto wine, liqueur, raisins. Balanced, smooth, complex taste. Dark chocolate, delicate coffee, dried fruits, chocolate and fruit liqueur, plums, baked apples and pears, autumn fruits. Warming, long, sweet, slightly sour finish. Full body with low carbonation. Thick and oily texture. Great beer, well balanced. Drunk a 1 year after the deadline.

DrunkSanta410 (176) - Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle to glass, from the cellar. Vintage 2012 (June). Pours dark black, light brown head. Lots of sediment present. Aroma is coffee, chocolate malts and yeast. Taste is peppery / spicy yeast transitioning to black cofee and subtle dark chocolate notes. Toast. Definitely mellowed out during aging. Palate is syrupy, thick and slightly carbonated. Not my favorite yeti, but still good.

Ferris (2000) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle - Dark chocolate, fruit esters and yeast. Jet brown with a rich brown head. Dark chocolate and dark fruit. Sweet raisin, which reminds me of Cadbury fruit and nut. Belgian yeast adds a nice fruity aspect that I quite like.

McNeillR (971) - SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Darker brown, more opaque than the others. Bowed lacing ringed head. Peppery yeast, tinfoil BBQ’d raisins and bananas. Bit more bready initial taste than the others, but not as much as I thought it would be. Spicy, sweetcorn brine, sweet jets of malt towards the middle. Mouthfeel is betwixt between rich sweetness and a bit of a let down thinness and in stark contrast to the other Yetis. Twitches of yeast on the finish, caramel flamed and delicate linger. Disappointing but this to complete the set.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle @Craig’s. Pours black, loved the spices coming through on the nose. On the palate, caramel, chocolate, molasses with a big fruit cake/Christmas spices thang going on. Loved the whole stout/belgian quad thing going on, so different to the original yeti.

MrFecesious (799) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2014
Shared 2012 bomber. Limited bubbly cap atop a brutally dark brown. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, coffee, attic dust, tea leaves, wood, and a touch of smoke. Taste is dry sweetness (tea sweet), and dark roast coffee bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel, and late LONG dry finish.
