Served in a tulip.

APPEARANCE

The beer pours a fairly dark brownish-red, almost black. It has quite a bit of light coming through, and the head is a good 2-3 fingers when first poured. The head disappeared slowly, and left a moderate amount of lacing. Looks pretty.

SMELL

This beer has a nice spicy potpourri-loke aroma. The yams come through, and it reminds me of yams and marshmellow. Howver, that is not to say that this beer is sweet smelling. It's very earthy, and has some allspice notes. There's a good bit of a molasses smell. It doesn't smell like other beers I have had, but it smells tasty!

TASTE

Does not seem to match the nose very closely. While the nose had a buttered yam-like smell with a subtle earthiness, the taste is more of a woody flavor. Nothing in the taste is very identifiable other than what I am assuming is the bark that is added. There is none of the pumpkin pie spice flavor that other "pumpkin" ales have, which is to be expected since the bottle says they don't use any. The flavor is actually more subtle than I expected, especially after smelling the beer.

MOUTHFEEL

This is pretty easy drinking. It's fairly dry and has minimal carbonation. On mouthfeel alone, it's a beer you could tip back and chug.

OVERALL

Not sure what to make of this, other than "meh". It's not a bad beer, and it tastes well-made, but it falls short of being a particularly memorable beer other than the unfamiliar flavors. Would I drink this again? Yes I would. Will I actively search this beer out? Nah. It's at least worth a taste, though.

Cheers.
