Not sure of the year, either a 2009 or 2010
A: Murky grayish medium brown. Forms a small light tan colored head that fades to just a thin ring around the edge. No lacing.
S: Reminiscent of pumpkin pie, but with more complexity. Sweet maple and brown sugar, roasted sweet potatoes, autumnal spices.
T: Damn sweet. Too sweet. Maple syrup, brown sugar, baked sweet potatoes, turbinado sugar, and currants. Residual apple juice flavor. Flavor is surprisingly thin with a dominant sweetness that I just can't get past.
M: Medium bodied, but feels thin for the style. As noted previously, this one is sweet, sugary, and comes through on the mouthfeel as well. Mild bitterness, though there is a slight spice astringency.
O: I'll admit I'm biased against pumpkin beers and I was hoping the substitution of yams might make for a better beer. It doesn't. Not only does this beer have the characteristic cinnamon-clove-nutmeg spice component, but it is exceedingly and unenjoyably sweet.
