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.

Tap flight at House of Beer. Thought I had this at the brewery but maybe not. Very dark brown pour, khaki head, very nice lace. Aroma of coffee and chocolate syrup. Taste is bitter to the point of being sour with enormous dark roasted malt on the finish. Not my 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 i’d 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 i’ve 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.

Butelka ważna do 1.X.12 r. - degustowana styczeń 2014! Rewelacyjna etykieta. W barwie smolista czerń. Piana niska, brązowa i drobnoziarnista. Aromat powalający! Wspaniały wachlarz nut czekoladowych! Od gorzkiej do mlecznej, aż do leciutkie kakao. Niesamowicie intensywna wanilia. Do tego rodzynki, śliwka, róże, odrobina nut rumowych. Czysta maestria! W smaku wanilia płynąca niesamowitą czekoladową rzeką (ponownie cały przekrój czekoladowych smaków od gorzkiego, po mleczne) pełną rodzynek, róży, ciemnych Średnio intensywna goryczka z nutą palonego słodu. Idealny balans, czysta perfekcja!

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 doesn’t really make a huge impact. May add some fruitier notes not typically in an imperial stout. It isn’t a sugary malt or a dark berry. Seems well attenuated, clean, full bodied, and moderate carbonation.

olio (6281) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
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. I’d 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.
