Brewed with 17 lbs. of yams per barrel (in other words, a lot of yams!), this autumn seasonal is a different take on the "pumpkin" beer style. Brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, molasses, and maple syrup, and fermented with our traditional Belgian yeast strain, this bold and spicy beer is perfect on a cold autumn evening.

A- Golden dark brown some orange highlights, dark khaki head with lacing around the glass.

S-Sweet booze covered nuts, brown sugar,vanilla cookies,some yeast and breads.

T- Iget an intial hit of booze along with syrupy sugars,cinnamon,nutmeg. Yams do make an appearance somewhere in the middle but not as predominant as I expected. Pretty tasty.

M- Full frothy enough carbonation, does have a bit of a syrupy consistency.

D- Very tasty although the abv was a bit too high for me, you dont get weary from this onslaught of winter flavors. Worth picking up if you see it.

Bottle purchased in August 2010.

A- Pours a clear red/brown liquid with a thin but creamy off-white head.

S- Candy, Belgian yeast, white bread, and just the slightest hint of spices. Overall, a bit on the mellow side considering the ingredients and alcohol content.

T- Some spices, yams, white bread, molasses, and fruit. Definitely has a Belgian aspect to it.

M- Very creamy body but the finish is a bit astringent with some lasting warmth from the alcohol.

O- A very interesting and well made take on the "pumpkin" style. The alcohol is pretty well hidden which adds to the drinkability. Worth trying, especially on a cool fall night.

Picked a bottle of this up the other day and figured that since I'm mostly taking the day off tomorrow, I was going to celebrate with it while I watch the first games of the college football season. Review is from notes taken on 9/2/2010 and poured from the bottle to a tulip.

Appearance: Pour is a cloudy cidery brown with some hints of ruby; starts with a big two finger light tan head that fades slowly to a thin, full and even cap that lingers throughout the drink with a pretty thick and foamy ring around the surface; body is cloudy and murky and mostly opaque with the only translucence at the edges; loose and oily spots and swaths of lacing slide back into the beer with only a couple hanging around the sides of the glass.

Smell: The dark and sweet fruitiness just pops out of the glass and into the nose -- raisins and figs abound; definite boozines comes in next and a strong dose of the standard Belgian spiciness. Very enticing and makes my mouth water just waiting to dive into this one.

Taste: Just really freaking good -- the sweet and dark rains and figs dominate and take the lead right up front along with the strong spiciness and alcohol; as it slides around the mouth, the presence of maple and chocolate/molasses makes an appearance that is welcome; really a robust and tasty offering that is hitting the spot.

Mouthfeel: Body is of medium weight and borders on medium-heavy; thick and oily in the mouth; carbonation is smooth and soft and really compliments the heavier body; an especially thick and moist coating is left on the roof of the mouth; belly is left quite warm from the higher ABV.

Drinkability: While this may look a little lower compared to the rest of the numbers, I assure you it's only because of the higher ABV -- this is really an outstanding beer and I'll be picking up one to age.
