The Beers of California
Freshness Date: None
A: Deep amber brown with an effervescent head of off white to khaki foam which dissipates to a thin layer that then slowly fades to a cling on the glass.
S: The spice complexity jumps out with highlights of maple syrup from a base of yam sweetness. The sweetness to build as the beer warms.
T: The allspice and cinnamon build as the molasses and maple syrup join in an attempt to bring a balancing sweetness. The yams add a sweet carbohydrate, slightly candied foundation to the brew. There is very minimal earthy hop bitterness. The yeastiness comes through in the end with a moderate amount of booziness.
M: The beer has a light to medium feel with similar amounts of carbonation.
O: The spices shine here but in the end overwhelm the remaining components of this beer, particularly the candied yam presence. The flavors here don't quite combine into a synergistic whole. A laudable attempt at creating a novel fall brew but overall can use some polishing.

750ml (1pt 94 fl.oz.) bottle. Tripel Karmeliet Oversized Chalice glass. Pours brown in color, reddish ruby to the light. Headed by beige crown showing fairly good retention. Toasted & caramel malts, figs, dats, ripe orange pulp hues, nutmeg & herbs are displayed on the aroma profile. Toasted & caramelish upfront. Full body. Soft carbonation. Flavor of molasses, maple syrup notes , brown sugar, slight phenolic touch & anice hints are balanced by herbal bitterness in the middle. Sweet no-cloying finish. Gentle warming, no harsh, kind & sugary ABV through the throat. Ripe fruit apricot-like on the aftertaste.
