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

After reading some of the reviews here, I didn't even want to open this. I didn't want to waste a beer opportunity with so many others in my cabinet waiting to be tried. But I'm so glad I did. I was expecting some kind of really funky flavor but it was totally mild and enjoyable.

Also as a variant of pumpkin beers, I expected to run out of steam early in the first glass out of the bomber. With most pumpkin beers, I've had enough about a third of the way into it. Just not my thing and they just don't seem to work and seem like just a mouthful of spices. Not so here. It's just a really pleasant and even sessionable beer. It packs a punch at 10% though. I got a little too tipsy to write down specific tasting notes.

The only bad thing I can say about it is that I thought the head was strangely fizzy. It lasted longer than a Coca Cola head, but that's the kind of head it was, fizzy and poppy and loose and ultimately gone, leaving nothing. I'd love it if this thing would maintain a creamy, robust, enduring Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale head, but alas.

GOOD BEER. Thanks, Bruery!
