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.

One finger head dissipates quickly to leave wisps of foam atop the warm dark amber beer.Candied sugar, strong sweet caramel, and baking spices greet the nose. Candied sugar, molasses, caramel, allspice, and cinnamon start the flavor parade. I got some yams as it warmed, along with a hint of the base malt which was reminiscent of a double amber, coppery flavor. Mouthfeel is pretty balanced. I assume the ABV has a hand in this since carbonation is not visibly active.

I am not one for pumpkin or spiced beers, so I came with low expectations. With that in mind, this is an OK beer, and definitely one of the best spiced beers I've had. Far too often, the brewer gets a little too spice happy when brewing a beer such as this, so I'm happy to see a little restraint from The Bruery. They didn't restrain themselves too much though, since a quick look at the ABV and ingredient list will clue you in that this is not your normal winter warmer. Good for The Bruery for trying something new and doing it successfully, even if it's not perfect.
