A-Light brown colored...small light tan head.
S-Vegetal. I am no yams expert but that is probably the scent I am smelling...also has some mild spicing and a nice hit of maple. I should note the first thing I thought when I smelled this is it smells like a dubbel.
T-Dubbel like...spicing gives hints of a a pumpkin ale although no pumpkin is used...sticky sweet with an underlying maple sweetness.
M-Sticky...medium bodied...borders on cloying but the heat from the abv keeps thing in check.
D-I thought this sounded pretty unique and I am glad I tried it but it is a one-time thing. Maybe a once a year thing. I couldn't see this being a staple in my fridge but a nice unique offering.

Thanks to mikedashg for sharing one of these. had it before, but never reviewed.
pours a ruddy brownish caramel with some head that recedes quickly and leaves no lace. i think this might be due to the glass shape, because other people at the tasting got a lot of head and lace. we all were vigorously swirling them too, which is sort of weird.
Smells of sweet brown sugar and there's a slight smell of yams, but not what you would expect. There's very mild spice, but it's not prevalent.
Instantly there's a spiciness that isn't overwhelming, but not so light that I'd call it subtle. The sweetness in the nose shows up in the form of sugar and candied yams. The spice and sweet blend very well and there's even a slight hint of nutmeg that rounds everything out.
Overall, this is a good light bodied holiday brew. It was great for a seasonal tasting.
NOTE: Having this side by side with BA Autumn Maple I really think this one is better. There's more subtlety to it, but I'll get into that in my review of the BA version.
