A- Unfiltered, light coppery brown color with a small, brown head. Not much to look at. Kind of a brothy, soup stock sort of vibe. Earthy but light. Light carbonation with little activity. The head dissipates fairly quickly and doesn't stick to the glass.
S- Sharper smells with lemon accents. Initially a big yam boldness, belgian yeast, light dark bready aromas and a spicy fruit character. Overwhelming roasted mashed yam/sweet potato smells, light banana, and clove characters throughout. Extremely sugary- dark maple syrup and vague spice shine with the roasted yams bouquets to round this one out.
T- Sweet brown sugar melded with a light roasted yam character and plenty of belgian yeast. A little lemon citrus upfront. Sweetened maple syrup darkness mixed with molasses and herbal tea dominants the palate. Sugary bourbons, roasted textures, a mild lemon acidity, and a lemon herbal tea character from the spices finishes it out.
MF- Lingering candied traits and a modest spiciness on the tongue. A big belgian beer that's not overly thick but offers virtually no drinkability. Incredibly sugary, mild astringency.
O- This beer reminds me a lot of bourbon sweet potatoes served at a Thanksgiving dinner. Very sweet, lots of alcohol, a gigantic amount of maple syrup, all with roasted yams buried underneath the flavors. Booze stands in the finish amid a molasses and syrupy belgian style brew. Disappointing, rough to drink. Didn't like the balance between the flavors much. This beer could have improved from a different yeast choice. Also, not a fan of maple syrup…. that turned me off a bit.
