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

a: a dark ruby red color with some lovely purple and murky brown notes. the head is tan and comes at about 1 finger when poured, but fades pretty quickly to only hang a slight film on top

s: caramelized brown sugar. yams. the yams provide the backbone to this beer as normally you'd detect with the malt. the sweet malt is in here, but the yams really make up the majority of the aroma. there is some spice in here as well - nutmeg, coriander, clove, and some cinnamon.

t: the first thing i'm noticed is some alcohol - wasn't really expecting that. that fades to a nice smooth sweet potato flavor; sweet potatoes with brown sugar sprinkled on top. that fades into a nice graham cracker-like flavor. the more you drink the less strong the alcohol becomes. it ends with some sweet molasses

m: medium mouthfeel with some syrup-like qualities. a small amount of carbonation in here; but carbonation isn't really needed

o: a bit disappointed at the prevalence of alcohol in here - however, it is 10% so a little is to be expected. the reason this works for a fall beer is the mixture of yams and brown sugar - it screams fall. if some of the alcohol heat was lost this would be great

Well, I was impressed with this Brown Ale. The quick hit of the molasses soothes out to a candied yam finiish. The aftertaste to me was subtle spices that only lasted for less then a minute. The smell was soft and pairable with it's flavors. If you are looking for a brew with flavors inspired from old fashioned Dutch then It's worth a try.
