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.

Bottle purchased at Whole Foods in Columbus, the very day it first arrived on local shelves. After reading about this brewery over the last year I've been looking forward to this first taste, a Belgian brown ale with yams and pumpkin pie spices.

The beer is murky dark copper color with a finely celled tan foam that starts at about 4 fingers thickness. The aroma is a little weizenbockish with pungent phenols, it smells a little aggressive. I get a lot more complexity out of the taste, I really like how all the flavors come together. To start with there are the weizen flavors of sweet malts and some light banana, but on top of that is a gourd-like quality which must be from the yams. Maple syrup is there but I wouldn't know it unless I expected it, and to finish it all off there's a hot alcoholic burn. The body is full and the carbonation, while light, is evident enough and proof that the Bruery fixed the problems they evidently had last year with this beer. This is more a sipper than chugger, and is a great beer with that in mind.

Poured into a NB goblet.

A - Cloudy brass orange. Opaque. Yeast settling at the bottom of the glass. Poured with lots of head and is now settled to a small skim and a ring at the glass.

S - sweet malty, yeast, pumpkin (yams actually) flesh. I almost expected more spice, but I'm kinda glad I'm not getting slapped with nutmeg and pumpkin spice. Smell comes out more with a little warmth.

T - wow quite nice! Still not too much spice. YAM (its not pumpkin) really up front, but sweetened up with the maple syrup that the name kinda gives away. Some nutmeg and earthyness. Belgian yeasty.

M - Medium mouth feel. Really nice and what I'm looking for with this type of beer. Not a lot of carbonation, but there's a small carbonation kick after the sip that almost is in place of the pumpkin spice that too often overloads these fall beers. Not so much a lasting after taste, and that 10.5% ABV is compliments nicely giving you a warming feeling, but not an alcohol burn.

D - It's a nice slow sipper. Not completely a dessert beer tho very enjoyable. This would probably go well with Thanksgiving dinner rather than Thanksgiving desert. It totally drives home the thoughts of Autumn leaves, and the changing seasons.

Poured into my snifter glass just before first pitch of the Sox game.

Pillowy, tight light tan head. Deep amber/orange color. Seems to be a slight haze to the beer. No lacing to speak of.

Aroma is of sweet potatoes, a bit of tartness, slightly yeasty

Flavor is rather interesting. Fall spices, brown sugar, a slight notion of maple and some nice Belgian yeast flavors. Not sure I can taste the yams.... But it was definitely a fall spice/flavor...
Definitely a beer that needs to be served at cellar temp and allowed to open up.

Medium body with slight carbonation.

Very enjoyable beer. I am not eating food with this but I get the sense this would go well with Thanksgiving dinner.

Pours a light translucent brown with a good head that quickly dissipates, leaving very little lacing on the glass.
The smell is enticing, pumpkin, cinnamon, and clove.
Tastes like a Belgian brown, but the spice is overdone.
Mouthfeel is light, would be better if fuller to support the high spice level.
The highly overspiced cinnamon makes this really not very drinkable unless you have your face in an apple pie.

The Bruery had made it to Ohio, but there were only two styles available at the local (The Anderson's) beer store. Naturally, I grabbed one of each.

Poured a hazy, dark orange with a moderate head that quickly dissipated to nothing. The aroma was... hey, what's going on here, is this a pumpkin beer?. The taste was a bunch of pumpkins too. Yeah, there was maple syrup too, like the name implies, but yams be damned, this was a pumpkin beer. The feel was medium bodied with very little carbonation. Drinkability was just OK (high ABV and not impressive flavor).

Come on "The Bruery", I hope you're not just sending us the dregs.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter

Murky brown, cider like color with a fluffy bubbly tan head that quickly fades to nothing, very still appearance, no lacing. Aroma is fairly mild, a little disappointing that it isn't stronger given the ingredients in this beer. Very earthy, vegetable-like and Belgian-y aroma, with mild sweetness (the maple I suppose but I can't actually identify that specifically), some peppery and cinnamon spices. Doesn't really open up much more as it warms up sadly. Flavor isn't that much different than what I imagine an Unibroue pumpkin beer might taste like. Well, you can tell the difference between the yams used instead of pumpkins, but as for what the spice and maple contribute there isn't anything that unique. Full bodied, syrup like, with high carbonation (seems like issues from last year's batch didn't carry over in that regard). Taste starts off like a dark Belgian ale, before the spices come in, cinnamon, light clove, etc. Finish has both an earthy, vegetable taste (the yams) and a slight sweetness (the maple), but neither is overpowering and are nicely balanced. Alcohol has a warming presence, but never burns or is found in the flavor. Overall, a very nice balance of flavors, and a nice alternative to the glut of pumpkin beers on the market this time of year, but slightly disappointed that if you're not paying close attention as you drink it's just another dark Belgian.

On tap @ The Institute (Philadelphia, PA) during their Pumpkinfest on 10/3/09. Served in a tulip glass.

Pours a deep murky amber, with a thin covering of off-white head. Fizzy retention around the edges, leaving a foamy cascade of lacing back. The aroma smells of sweet potatoes, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Some citrusy and earthy hop undertones, as well as plenty of fall-like spicing and warmth fills out the rest of this in the nose.

The taste is sweet, spicy, and sticky in the mouth. Deep yammy sweetness, with cinnamon and nutmeg mixed in. Earthy hops and a certain amount of roastiness to this, help pull back some of the sweeter tones. This has a definite tangy tart edge to it as well. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied, with a big prickly creaminess to the carbonation, which then sits on a much viscous feel underneath. Alcohol gives this a beefy feel in the mouth, but it isn't distracting, instead giving this more of a pleasant warmth.

I liked this. The combo of the yams, maple syrup, and spice made for a pleasant Fall-like feel in the mouth, and the higher alcohol guarantees you'll get warmed up on those cool Autumn nights. This was definitely a sipper but a damn tasty one.

Pours orangish brown with huge tan head that quickly dissipates into nothing with no lacing.
Aromas of brown sugar, maple syrup, cloves, cinnamon, plums, and orange zest.
Autumn Maple tastes like a sweet yam casserole with brown sugar, black pepper, grape juice, lemon, and a multitude of spices. There's definitely a lot going on here. The beer is spritzy in mouthfeel but it's thin too. This is a good fall beer, but I think I prefer the taste of pumpkins in my beer over the taste of yams.

Bottle courtesy of RoyMunson. Drinking this side by side with the BA Autumn Maple for science purposes.

Pours a ruby brown in color. Looks like autumn in a glass. Very nice couple inches of head forms on the pour. It sticks around for awhile, but recedes to a froth.
Smell is mostly spices with some malts as well. Lots of nutmeg, alspice and some sweet yams. Smells delicioius, and I just decided what I'll be drinking for Thanksgiving dinner.
All the flavors in the beer are very balanced and complimentary to one another. Which is quite the feat with everything that is going on here.
Incredibly smooth and full on the mouthfeel. I'm really digging this beer!

On tap at The Institute during Pumpkin Fest.

A-Reddish tinted golden copper, like the skin of a pumpkin. Thin tan head quickly reduced to a thin veil and left little to no lace.

S-A wonderful memory provoking aroma. Deep earthy vegetable notes with a spice kick and a finish of maple syrup sweetness. Very nice yet rather subtle. Aroma builds with warming.

T-The yam flavour really comes out in the forefront and is quickly accompanied with an earthy spicy zing and maple sweetness. Like a Thanksgiving side dish in a glass!

M-Medium bodied quite smooth and easy to drink. Nice lingering flavours and a creamy, slightly syrupy finish.

D-Tasty and unique. I really enjoyed this one. Certainly a sipper of a brew. To be enjoyed as it transforms as it warms becoming more and more earthy and aromatic. A fitting tribute to my favorite season of the year.

Out of a 750 ml capped bottle. Pours light chocolate brown color with honey highlights; a rather small tan head that quickly settled into nothingness. The aroma is of nice spicy belgian yeast; banana and clove, brown sugar, and figs. The maple aroma comes through as the brew warms. The taste is vinous, a plum fruitiness, an earthy spice tone, light lemon tartness. The molasses and maple syrup add the sweetness to the brew but are fairly subtle and blend with what I imagine is the yam. Not much yam flavor but I pick it up towards the end. The feel is moderate to thick, perhaps a touch syrupy and sticky; light carbonation and quite noticable abv. An interesting brew, needs to tone down the booze so that the other flavors come through. Perhaps some aging would do the trick.

These guys are something else, I look forward to the opportunity to try anything new from The Bruery. Yam beer, here we go. This one pours an awesome orange/brown hue that screams the season, a small tan head rests atop. Lots of sweetness and gentle breezes of alcohol in the nose, sweet potato malt? This beer is difficult to review because there is so much happening here. Thanksgiving in a bottle really, the light maple syrup note works well with the sweetness and mild spiciness of the brew, the alcohol content is detectable but it cuts right through the flavor in a way that enhances the experience rather than hurt it, this beer is hot in a good way. Im really enjoying this, Thanksgiving in a bottle.

Thanks to paulxqx for the hook-up!

This one pours a very nice, light, ruby color with golden brown tinting. Three-fingers of creamy tan foam make the head. It recedes to a thin surface covering. Lacing is thick and fairly sticky.

This has to be one of the best smelling beers I've ever had. It smells wonderful. The yams and spices are most noticable, but the maple notes also come out nicely. There's also something else....pecans, maybe?

This is delicious! Wonderful yam flavors shine through. The spices are very nice and right out in the open. They are balanced by a very nice maple flavor and sweetness. A very mild hint of molasses keeps it all grounded. All of this sits on top of a nice malty base.

Full-bodied with a medium-to-full level of carbonation. Very smooth and easy to drink. It has a nice level of creaminess, which I like.

The abv level is a bit high. While I don't taste it, I am certainly starting to feel it, at the halfway point in this 25oz. bottle. Other than that though, it's super tasty and easy to drink.

On tap at The Institute as part of their "Pumpkin Patch" event...

Brownish oranage in color, frothy plume of white head, good lacing. Smell is dominated byBelgian yeasts, dark fruits and earth. Hints of fall spices such as nutmeg, cinamon and clove. The taste is also dominated by the Belgian yeast and dark fruit. The seasonal tastes follow on the end - cinamon, clove, nutmeg, hints of maple brown sugar and a slight candied yam/sweet potato flavor. Medium bodied, ample carbonation. Good, but not great, dominated by the Belgian Ale part of the equation which doesnt let the seasonal tastes come through enough.

Pours a cloudy, dirty burgundy color with one finger of fizzy off white head.

Scent of maple syrup, spice, earth, yams, sugar and a hint of alcohol. A different scent, yet quite good.

Taste of grain, earth, sugar, yams, maple syrup, and soda. An unusual taste, but I did enjoy this quite a bit.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with strong carbonation, a bit more that I prefer, but still great.

On tap at The Drafting Room, Exton, PA.

Appearance: Hazy copper. Long lasting bone-white head. Standard lacing (might have been due to a dirty bar glass).

Aroma: Caramelish malt and non-descript spice.

Flavor: Spice, caramel, fruit (apple, berry), subtle underlying tart note. Spicy zest of ginger (or is that alcohol? Or a combination of both?). Maple and cinnamon in finish with a spritz of alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body with a standard carbonation level.

Drinkability: While chilled it's really quite unique and interesting. Only as it warms and you progress through the glass does the spicing really appear. So, pretty damned drinkable!!!

Poured from a glass into a belgian tulip (Duvel). Beer is brown and carbonation is steady, no head to speak of, white bubbles, no lacing left on the glass. The beer smells like pumpkin pie spice.

I just noticed that this beer is classified as a pumpkin ale even though the label states "Belgian Style Brown Ale Brewed with Yams....We don't need pumpkins in our beers!" So I would call this a CLEAR misclassification. This beer needs to be reclassified.

Beer is clear but if not careful, the yeast will dislodge from the bottom of the bottle and the last sips will be yeasty. Overall the beer is well balance, especially when you consider the high ABV (10.5!). It finishes a little dry, but the complexity of the flavors come through. I'm not sure what I expected from a beer made with yams, but it was pretty good. I don't pick up much of the maple character, but I'm not sure how much I should. Good beer, interesting, check it out.

Went down to the Charleston Beer Exchange in downtown Charleston, SC. They have "Rare Beer Tuesday's" which happens to be today, 09/29/09.

I poured it from the growler and noticed the dark hazy color, almost like sweet tea. There was no real head on the beer, maybe 2 fingers at most and off-white in color, which had a very short retention time.

It smells like grandma's house on Thanksgiving. Immediately my nose was greeted with cinnamon, clove, maple syrup, brown sugar, almost like a candied ham or yam for that matter.

The taste is an orchestra of cinnamon, brown sugar, clove with an aftertaste of candied yams and vanilla icecream mixed together, you know when you burp up candied yams after Thanksgiving dinner. A very Southern taste!

This is definately very drinkable, especially when in good company, and a beer to share for sure. The alcohol leaves a perfect burn in the back of your throat, very nice on a cold day.

I highly recommend this beer for the fall. The beer creates a perfect equation for fall and winter, all you need is Autumn Maple(+)Friends(+)A Fire(X)Cold weather and you will be sure to have a good time.

Poured a leather brown with a huge head from good carbonation that dies slowly. An intense smell of cinnamon, clove, peppers; the spices in this beer outweight the smell of yams and there is some minor sweetness in the smell of maple and molasses and also a little yeast smell. The sweetness from the yams and maple is evident but the spices, mostly cinnamon and clove is what I am picking up, is just a tad too powerful. A full-bodied beer that is thick, sticky, and smooth and finishes slightly dry due to a minor citric hop bite on the backend; could also be a very minor ABV burn. A very good if not great beer that is pleasing to sip on and I enjoyed it thoroughly; only wish it could've been a little sweeter.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into my Duvel tulip. Bottle says this is a Belgian-style brown ale. BA has it as a pumpkin ale. I'll try to keep both styles in mind. Virtually no lacing.

Appearance: Pours a murky brown-orange, with four fingers of off-white head that slowly, slowly subsides. Minimal lacing.

Smell: Definitely smells like a pumpkin ale. The smell is dominated by pumpkin pie spices. Malt in the background. Good smelling beer.

Taste: Doesn't taste all that much like it smells, which is surprising. The traditional 'Belgian' flavor dominates, backed by some spices. The finish is long and smooth, with almost a vanilla-honey aftertaste. I'm not sure I'm getting the maple syrup, or the yams, or the other flavors advertised, or maybe I'm just tasting what happens when they all blend together. Alcohol is definitely evident, as the beer warms all the way through. Maybe some pumpkin-like flavors come through as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel: Thick, and high carbonation. Nothing to complain about.

Drinkability: Definitely a good beer to sip on on a cold winter night. It smells like a pumpkin ale, but tastes like a Belgian brown. I'm not really sure how to best classify it. My nose says one thing, and my tastebuds say another. It's a beer I definitely would have to be in the mood for, and I might pick up another one for when the weather cools.

Bottle to stout glass.

Good looking pour, with 3-4F tan head over top of a deep, deep orange body - slight translucence. Zero lacing or head retention as it warmed.

Smell is a malt bomb, with spice. Molasses, cinnamon, orange spice, and cardboard.

Taste is nice - was worried about a 10.5% 'Pumpkin', but there is plenty of rich complexity to mask the alcohol. Maple and yams come through in the flavor. Reminded much more of a Dubbel than a Pumpkin Ale.

Carbonation was present, but muted in the thick mouthfeel. Pretty syrupy overall, so matched my expectations.

I like Pumpkin Ales, and especially the Imperial variety, so I found this to be quite drinkable and a terrific Fall seasonal.

A: Pours a beautiful burnt umber with orange streaks and a nice off-white head.

S: The yams certainly come through in the initial whiff. Lots of spicing on top. Even without actual pumpkin, I've got no problem with this being classified as a pumpkin ale--all of the same spicing with a nice twist. In addition to the usual cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, maple and vanilla definitely come through with a little bit of brown sugar and molasses.

T: Much like the smell. When poured from the fridge, the sweetness was more noticeable, along with the sweet potatoes. As it warmed up, more of the spices and other notes started to show more presence.

M: Medium bodied without much--if any--alcohol presence. No carbonation issues with this year's batch.

D: Quite drinkable, especially for the style. One of my new favorite fall seasonals.

So excited to try my first beer from The Bruery. Pours a nice dark brown, with ruby highlights when held to the light. It pours with a nice three finger head that really hangs around awhile.
Very nice aromas, peppery spicness and some nice earthy yeast. Lingering in the background you can find some nice clove, cinnamon, allspice, vanilla, and maple syrup.
This is one intensely spiced brew. All of your favorite fall spices are in this one. Again I'm getting some clove, allspice and cinnamon at first. I wish I could pick up some of the yam but I can't really pick that out. Hints of the maple syrup and molasses as well. Didn't pick up any alcohol flavor at all.
It's a little too carbonated I think and comes across just a touch too thin. Overall a very fine brew and I can't wait to try more from The Bruery!!!

750ml bottle supplied by oglmcdgl, poured into some small snifters, thanks for the shot.

A- Autumn Maple has a brown bark of a tree look with some hazy copper and some old rust look to it. Has some dark pink up to light. Not that much of a head, just some beige foam, minimal lacing.

S- What a nose on this one. I was expecting big things because this is Bruery beer after all, and i was not dissapointed. A big whiff of fresh baked bread. Applesause also comes to mind. Kind of smells like a pastry or a apple pie. Not so much pumpkin but there are alot of spices in this. Candied yams.

T- Being classified as a pumpkin beer, i was expecting alot of it. It's there but way muted with all the other ingredients. The main tastes out of this are apples and yams. Under that a big dose of brown sugar and cinnamon. While im sure hops are used, they dont come up on the radar. Some sweet malts and mollases. This is one kick ass "Brown ale"

M- The carb is a bit much on 1st sips when the beverage is cold. It was almost a bit to rough going down. Warming this one up does wonders to the smoothness of the quaff. Autumn Maple is a bit above medium bodied (even though the liquid looks thinner than that) with a sweet taste during and after. Picking up a little alcohol from the 10%, it is not totally muted.

D- I really enjoyed this, exceeded expectations as im not a big pumpkin guy and the amount of it in this beer is why I like this so much, there is so much more going on in this beer. The 10% is very high so splitting a bottle with a like minded friend is the way to go. I'm going to pick up some bottles for thanksgiving, it's sort of a no brainer. The Bruery is doing big thangs for such a young Bruery.

On tap at the South Philly Tap Room, served in a 10oz wine glass

Appears a burnt orange with hints of brown/dark amber hues. A thin, fizzy tan cap barely coated the top of the beer by the time I got it.

A very earthy, spicy aroma with a distinct vegetable aroma. There are hints of vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, molasses, and maple syrup. A very intriguing aroma and extremely unique.

Sweet potatoes? Really? I get sweet potatoes, molasses, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and a heavy dose of maple syrup. A fantastic blend even if the sweet potatoes took me aback. Sweet, spicy, syrupy and with that earthy, meaty vegetable base.

I thought the carbonation was turned down a bit too much, but the mouthfeel was still rich and full. The booze was hardly noticed. I had no problems savoring this number.

As far as fall offerings go, this guy has a rich and unique character that goes a really long way.
