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 (10168) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
65 cl bottle @ PBF IX.TBone (17442) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
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.

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.

65 cl bottle @ PBF Ⅸ, BBE 2012lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Aroma has cocoa and some dark chocolate. Feels sweet. Flavour has soy sauce, salty licorice, dark chocolate and cocoa. The belgian sourness tries to ruin the Yeti here.
650 ml bottle @ PBF IX. BBE 2012. Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, salty licorice and biscuit. Flavour of raisin, roasted malts, some plums, blueberry pie, salty licorice, yeastiness and floral notes. Very mellow but noticeable spiciness with nutmeg and cinnamon notes. Full bodied and soft carbonation. Surprisingly complex. Stuu666 (13123) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours black, very sweet chocolate, dry bitter coffee, some belgian spices. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours black almost oil like with same type of viscosity and tan head. Cocoa, roasted malt, and some dark fruit notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied this will leave you satisfied. Hoppsan (151) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2014
