Bottle, 2012 vintage. Thick black pour with a nice layer of mocha coloured head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, anise, and nuts. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, followed by light caramel sweetness, finish is smooth with a bit of roast, mouthfeel is thick, carbonation is medium. Very tasty, another solid offering for the yeti series. jmgreenuk (9448) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 1, 2014

Any Yeti-based beer is obviously going to be very good, but there isn’t much Belgian character here and frankly this addition to the lineup seems a bit unnecessary. It just comes across as a lighter Yeti. I’ll give them credit for masking the alcohol very well and producing a smooth and drinkable imperial stout, but it seems a bit unremarkable compared to the other Yeti brethren. slowrunner77 (12040) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2014
"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. Lisowczyk (81) - POLAND - AUG 16, 2014
