Beer added by: MiScusi on 09-21-2008

Brewed with 17 lbs. of yams per barrel (in other words, a lot of yams!), this autumn seasonal is a different take on the "pumpkin" beer style. Brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, molasses, and maple syrup, and fermented with our traditional Belgian yeast strain, this bold and spicy beer is perfect on a cold autumn evening.

On tap at The Bruery. Had trouble finishing my taster in the flight, had a really foul aftertaste.

Great Belgium fall style, but sets itself part by staying away from pumpkin and turning to yams instead.

Reddish brown color with nice head. Smells of yams and spices. Tastes of yams, nutmeg, and molasses. Sweet mixed with a strong vegetative taste. Not necessarily my favorite beer, but I think its pretty well done for what they were trying to do here. At the very least its unique.

Red brown body. Nice sized cream head. Yeast Belgian aroma. Hints of banana and fig. Slight tart taste with a banana and maple finish. Has a lot of Belgian style characteristics. It’s ok.

2013 vintage 750 ml bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a beautiful mahogany color, speckled with both reddish and orange highlights, topped with a finger and a half of white head that dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that gripped the sides of the glass, and formed a few wispy clouds of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Lots of malt and notes of black pepper, brown sugar, slight hints of alcohol, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, all-spice and Belgian yeast.

Taste: Malty and fruity up front. Notes of freshly baked bread and pumpkin, followed by quite a bit of pronounced sweetness. Brown sugar, molasses, cinnamon. Followed by quite a bit of alcohol heat. The beer has a slight sour finish that is quite pleasant.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, but smooth, as the beer has no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 10%, there’s quite a lot of alcohol on the palate, which, as stated above, provides a pleasant alcohol warmth to the palate.

Overall: This is quite an excellent beer! I love the perfect balance between malt and fruit and sweet and sour. It’s a great quaff on its own, but paired with food, especially Thanksgiving dinner, it’s absolutely brilliant!

Not my favorite - ended up trying to finishing most of the bottle myself cause the wife hated it. Was OK paired with some dark chocolate, but all the unique flavors never really came together.

750ml into a matching Bruery snifter. The brew appears a deep reddish brown color with a yellow cap. The smells of yams is prevalent initially then caramel spice and earth as it warms. As the experience continues its almost soapy. The taste is tart and fruity with some vegetative component that isnt that great. A bit of spice. Inwould not drink this again, its pretty bad.

Strong aroma has malty, pumpkin and spicy notes. Pours a clear dark amber with a thick, buttery-tan head. Flavor has firm malty, earthy and pumpkin notes with hints of cinnamon and maple syrup. Texture has good body and a fair amount of fizz. Definitely worth seeking for autumn!

Pours a medium cloudy brown with small white head. The description is better than the actual experience. There is a complex flavor of maple, pears and nuts, but very tart, similar to an Oud Bruin.

2011

A - poured a half finger thick tan head into a tulip glass that left good lacing throughout. The body was a bright reddish-brown color.
S - big yam aroma with hints of molasses and Belgian yeast.
T - yams, molasses, big spices.
M - medium and coating.
O - interesting and I liked it, maybe a little more spice to balance out the sweetness would make it even better.
