Thanks so much for sharing this one pwoods!
Pours a nice coppery-orange amber, somewhat murky, with an initial, huge, fluffy dense tan 2 finger head. Fades to a full and soft skim with dense swaths of lace slipping quickly back down.
The nice spiciness of the allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg come through, along with sweetness of the yams and caramelized malts. There's a nice fruity pruneness and powdery sugariness.
The molasses is so very evident in the taste. It presents like in gingersnaps alongside the spiciness. Brown sugar, yam sweet-earthiness, and crispy toasted grains, sugar-sweet malt, almost saacharine and very sticky from the syrup. Pretty present carbonation and warm alcohol barely avoids being medicinal.
Drinkaiblity is pretty high. Very enjoyable flavors with a little sharpness from the alcohol.

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.
