Served on tap at the Bruery tasting room.
A: Nice brown color with a tint of rusty orange. Not much of a head, but some lingering foam throughout. Looks to be moderately carbonated.
S: Wow. This beer smells incredible. Take a bunch of cooked yams and coat them with about half a bottle of Aunt Jemima and take a big whiff. Other spices come through strong on the nose, cinnamon, vanilla, aroma of a fresh baked bread. Makes me hungry.
T: Thanksgiving dinner liquified. This is by far the best autumn beer tasted to date. The yams obviously plow through out of the gate, but as the beer warms and opens, all other spices really work well together. The beer literally melts in your mouth. With all the commotion, one can still appreciate that this is a belgian brown ale.
M: Perfect carbonation, like a soft cooked yam melts away on your tongue. Alcohol very well balanced for being a 10.5% monster. Give me a glass of this and send me to an apple orchard and I'm a happy man.
D: Very drinkable. Despite all the yam flavor and spices, the beer is not too thick that it is filling. Great from the tap.
Awesome beer, awesome brewery. Like whats going on there and look forward to many future offerings.

For some reason, I let this one sit for a few years. Still tasted pretty good though. Pours a medium brown color with orange highlights throughout. Head is small, even with a hard pour. Head retention and lacing are minimal. This beer could have used a little more carbonation.
Aroma includes maltiness, an aroma reminiscent of pumpkin (the yams), the usual pumpkin beer spices and some molasses and brown sugar. Very nice.
Flavor is rich, as rich as some of the better pumpkin ales. The sweetness is balanced by the spices and the fairly neutral tasting yam flavor. All the flavors are pronounced and pleasant.
Mouthfeel is rich but lacking in carbonation. I thought I might have stored this beer too long, but I read other reviews complaining about carbonation issues. Still pleasant. no hint of alcohol except for a welcoming warming effect.
I'm not a huge fan of fruit and vegetable beers but his one is pretty good.
