Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

ABV: 10%, IBU: 25, SRM: 15, Release: Fall

I would hardly call this a "fruit / vegetable" beer - more like a thick solid Octoberfest or even a Scotch ale with a slight touch of funk of some sort that takes over where hop bitterness might come in. The 17 pounds of yams used in the brewing process is not only a surprise, but a non-event. More like a "so-what" - it adds a little sweetness.

Had on tap at the Public House in Brookline, MA and really enjoyed - think solid mouthfeel, little to no alcohol warming considering the ABV, a moderate amount of sweetness that is balanced out by a very small amount of funk of some sort. Little to no head, and didn't really get much smell out of it.

Overall, a pretty decent fall beer if you're not in the mood for coiffing.
