Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

ABV: 10%, IBU: 25, SRM: 15, Release: Fall

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Autumn Maple pours a hazy dark reddish/brown into the glass with a big, frothy white head on top. The foam dissolves slowly to a thick blanket on the surface and leaves behind several lines and spots of lace on the glass.

The spicy aroma has notes of clove, cinnamon, orange peel, brown sugar and raisins. The aroma starts out like a Belgian style beer, but has some added essence to it. Quite interesting.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is light on the palate, slick, pillowy, with an effervescent fizz. The flavor has a lot going on. It begins sweet with notes of brown sugar and molasses. I think I can taste the yams in there too. In the middle spicy notes of clove, coriander, cinammon and a little vanilla. Ripe fruits (raisin or plum) are also present. It finishes a little funky and dry with some yeasty flavors. Once gone the sweet brown sugar and raisin notes linger on the palate.

This is an interesting, full flavored beer that definitely deserves to be sipped.

A - Fairly clear brownish auburn with a nice off white head. The color reminds me of autumn.

S - Spicy belgian yeast notes with dark fruits, cinnamon, maple syrup and vanilla.

T - On the sweet side with some caramel malts, bready, hint of chocolate with a general spiciness and belgian yeast notes. Lingering maple syrup flavor on the finish.

M - Medium body with just a touch of slickness due to the sweetness.

D - Definitely has some autumn flavors to it. Not sure I like the combo with the belgian yeast.

Poured into a Founders snifter, this beer poured a cloudy burnt red to brown in color with an off white head that laced the glass. This smells like a sweet potato covered in butter, sprinkled with cinnamon fresh out of the oven. I don't even like sweet potatoes but wow, this is perfect for autumn. I wish I would've opened this on Thanksgiving. This tastes like sweet potato pie, and that's the perfect description. It is a little sweet but it's to be expected for what the rest of the beer represents. It drinks smoothly and looks like a Belgian dark and is full bodied. This beer is very drinkable but the sweetness can be a little much. I'm not a fan of yams so I'm glad I split this bottle three ways. It's a good beer and different to say the least. I'm glad I tried it. This beer should definitely be split between friends as more than a third would be a little much.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours dark copper with blood orange highlights when held to the light. One inch of very bubbly head evaporates quickly, settling to a thin white film on the surface.

Mouthfeel is medium-full but with enough carbonation to bring some tangy flavor to the tongue.

This beer hits the nose with molasses, brown sugar, coriander and citrus. There's an earthy undertone that I would guess comes from the yams.

The taste gives you a lot to think about. The sweet molasses and brown sugar flavors come through first. Then the coriander and cinnamon flavors meld in nicely. Some yammy earthiness and depth comes at the midpoint and escorts the beer to its finish which melds that earthy flavor with some hop and alcohol bitterness. the flavor of the yams comes through pretty unmistakably and is distinct from the sweetness. If yams aren't your thing, this isn't your beer.

I'm rating this in comparison to the other fall/pumpkin beers since the yams are really a replacement for that gourd. Based on that standard, I think this beer does quite well. It's not overly spiced and you can actually taste the yams (whereas many pumpkin beers are designed to mimic pumpkin pie rather than actual pumpkin). Not my favorite style or my favorite example of the style, but it is evocative of the season and is worth a try when the leaves change. A worthy experiment from a forward thinking brewery.

Picked up a bottle of this at TW for a discounted price, due to it's "off-seaon." Poured into a chalice. Pours a dark, murky brownish-orange with a 2-finger width tan head on top. No retention whatsoever. No lace. The nose is really sweet, but not maple, as I expected. More like plum, stawberry, vanilla. Subtle spiciness on the finish.

The mouth is way carbonated, to the point of almost being harsh. This smooths out on the finish though. The maple is also absent in the flavor. I expected this aspect to be more pronounced. Some cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and yeast. Yeast is all over the place. I was instructed to take care pouring this one out to leave the yeast in the bottle, but my best try was a failure I guess. Alcohol is hidden well. One glass was fine enough for me. I don't think I'll revisit this one again. Where's the maple? Where's the yams? I had high hopes, but it left me wanting much more out of it.

Pours a murky brown with modest sized head that is light tan in color. Nose has mixed holiday spices and some bread-like qualities. More bread on the palate, very Belgian-esque, with a funky fruity flavor and kore holiday spices. Alcohol is hidden well. Moderately easy to drink.

Picked this up on a whim at Julio's a while back. Somewhat forgot all about it.

A - Poured into a Duvel tulip with a nice creamy two finger head that slowly faded to leave a cream coloured curtain atop the deep amber brew. Very small bubbled coming up from the bottom of the tulip.

S - Picking up some nice spice notes mainly allspice and a little nutmeg. Getting a very slight sweetness, not much in the way of yam aroma. There is the nice tell tale yeast strain smell that the Bruery is known for.

T - Similar to the nose with the spice notes up front. Still not getting much in the way for yam taste or sweetness. Infact, no much in the way of maplesyrup either. Theres somethign earthy on the back but its very faint. The strongest aspect is the slightly funky yeast strain.

M - Low carbonation results in a somewhat creamy beer. The 10.5 % isnt felt in the mouth but its kinda heavy. Works with this flavor profile.

D - Its a good beer, not my thing, but considering the ABV is drinks fairly well. The smell could really use some boosting, as well as the flavor. This drinks more like a winter warmer than a "yam" beer. I respect how nicely the ABV is hidden and how long the foam hangs around for but this was still somewhat dissapointing.

a- 750ml bottle poured into a snifter, one finger head fades to uneven, bubbly lace and a ring around the glass, murky walnut coloring.

s- belgian brown with a twist, really deep inhale only gives a scant hint of maple syrup and yams, mostly getting the typical yeasty, bready, spicy notes.

t- brown, pretty much what i get in the nose, on the backend i get some yams and maple spice, really yeasty and bready, sweet.

m- medium bodied.

d- not quite sure why but this wasn't that drinkable for me, i couldn't have more than one glass, i even paired it with food - drank this on Thanksgiving. Okay beer, just not up my alley.

Had the first incarnation of this beer and it was horribly undercarbonated so hoping this one turned out better.

pours a big white head, lacing, creamy, chewy looking.

Light smell, not too much on it. Some spices.

Decent taste, some heat, no real maple or other vanilla, molasses flavors, only some spice and yeast.

Overall a disappointing beer but not bad.

On-tap at Flying Saucer served in a tulip glass an almost crisp dark orange with a decent off white head that diminishes to a ring. Aroma is a nice amount of spice alongside dried fruits, molasses and a hint of maple. The taste is sweet brown sugar, spice, burnt caramel, dried fruits and molasses, nice and complex. The beer is medium bodied with fairly well hidden alcohol, great for a cold December day.

A: This poured a nearly clear mahogany with lots of thick tan head.
S: It smelled like lots of dry Belgian yeast, with earthy maple and brown sugar and copper hops and lemon zest and light fruity esters.
T: It tasted like rick maple and sweet brown sugar, with sour Belgian yeast and candied yams and lemon zest. It had a sharp bittersweet aftertaste with noticeable alcohol.
M: It was somewhat thick with a little smooth carbonation.
D: This was a very nice unique dark Belgian ale. It had a good scent and flavor, with great body. But it did have a bit of alcohol heat, so it wasn't super easy to drink. Not sure if age would help mellow it out. This was a nice change of pace, but nothing I would drink regularly.

First had: 750ml bottle at Brigid's, Philly, PA

Dark amber color with some haze--much more haze towards the end. Light tan head. Very malty aroma, yeasty, with hints of sugar and spice. Taste is malty and bready, starchy, dry potatoes. Disappointing in that the maple was not very pronounced. Kind of flat. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Lots of sediment towards the end made the beer very harsh and yeasty. Fair overall... I don't mind some trub in my beer, but the high yeast sediment here killed it towards the last quarter of the bottle, making it almost impossible to finish even with careful pouring, and the maple taste was stale and almost not worth mentioning. Very underwhelming.

Very interesting and complexly challenging, it's easy to draw comparisons to American Brown Ales and pumpkin additions. But this is different- let's see how...

Pouring a medium brown with a mild haze, the beer builds a very sturdy foam stance with stubborn staying power. A dirty-white foam (not quite tan, but darker than eggshell) attempts to lace but never makes it happen. Still the head formation and retention is impressive.

Spicey cinnamon and brown sugar adorn earthy-sweet scent of... I guess, yams?. Again I want to think it's pumpkin but with more earthiness and starchy scents. This all builds on a mildly toasty Brown Ale base. But this Brown Ale compliments the spicy start with built-in notes of white pepper, corriander, and alcohol.

Flavors bound with the vegitable (yams), yeast (fruity/spicy) and residual flavors of maple syrup. Notice that the beer doesn't allow for added sweetness from maple syrup, only the taste. But not is all terrific as the Begian-y tartness mixes with the astringency of added spice for a taste/texture that might be more bitey and distracting than benneficial. Low on hops, this kinda beer doesn't need 'em. The beer has enough balance built into it's complex matrix.

Creamy and full from the start, which carries pasta the mid palate before starting it's late phase. The starchy aroma and flavor manifests itself in texture even moreso. An abrupt late drop of texture brings about the astringent feel and unappealing type of bitterness that closes the beer without drying. The battle of early creaminess vs. late bite will bennefit the former but the later does hurt a bit.

I love the concept and refusal to go with the norm (sounds like something Dogfish Head would have brewed), but the execution needs some work. I need more savory flavors and sweetness from the maple syrup and I need a more pungent/earthy flavor of Belgian Brown (maybe a Flander's Bruine) to counter the sweet/starchy base of maple and yams. Though asking the impossible, a guy can dream- can't he?

A big thanks to Pastradul for this one!

A: Pours a brown/red color with lots of bubbles released from the bottom of the glass. One finger head with decent retention and nice lacing.

S: A great aroma, one that only gets better as the beer warms. Get a lot of cinnamon and nutmeg up front then some brown sugar and molasses. These flavors just intensify as it warms.

T: Very similar to the nose, and again opens up a lot as it warms. The spices are very nice, but the molasses and brown sugar really make it. The yams show up afterwards with a nice malt backbone. There is a warm finish from the alcohol which actually plays well to offset the sweetness.

M/D: Medium to full bodied with perfect carbonation, very crisp. A very well made beer, very tasty and was the perfect beer to have with Thanksgiving. I definitely want to get another bottle for next year!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2

A - translucent brown with orange and red around the edges. Pours a beefy three finger head that turns into a small, bubbly layer on the top with a fair amount of bubbles around the edges. Heavy lacing.

S - Sweet potato, spicyness from coriander, orange peel, pepper, some kind of sweet fruit, maybe apricot or raisin. The smell is large and impressive, but not my favorite smell. A friend of mine said "This smells exactly like a Hacker Pschorr, but with yams".

T - Lots of sweet potato, but none of the sweetness from the beer comes from that flavor. A plethora of spicyness, mostly coming from what's listed in the smell - coriander, orange peel, banana, pepper, anise, fresh apple cider, caramel. The hop profile is barely peeking out in the finish, a small amount of bitter and citrus. The sweetness is really hanging around. Personally, this feels much more like drinking a yam infused hefeweizen instead of a brown ale.

M - medium body, high carbonation - small bubbles, yay! Coats the mouth and is crisp, very nice.

D - This isn't really for me, so the sustainably isn't high. The sweetness limited me to a glass, and the other two guys I split a bottle with didn't want any extra after their first pours.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours golden brown with ample carbonation, a bit cloudy which 't out of line for a Belgian style brew. Nice white head with ample lacing.

Aromas starts out spicy with some nutmeg, clove and maybe a little cinnamon. All spells are subtle but still nice.

The tastes begin with Belgian yeast spice and with the other spices mentioned above. Everything is fairly balanced, yet uninpiring to be honest. Some caramel/brown sugar sweetness, but not as much as you'd think and it's not the least bit cloying. Beglian Yeast flavors really dominate the flavor profile

Mouthfeel is spot on thanks to the Belgian yeast. Thick enough to support the flavors and let them linger, but not overdone. Alcohol pretty well hidden. Easy to drink if you like the flavor profile.

Overall this is a nice take on the Pumpkin ale, Autumn ale style. Normally beers this high is ABV have questionable drinkability because they are too slick and cloying but this is simple and pleasant on the palate.

This is a great follow up to the traditional pumpkin ale at the Thanksgiving table. A very clear garnet brown with a decent light khaki head. Light to moderate lacing on the glass after a quick fade. There is some stickiness apparent in the liquid. A deep rich nose full of sweet malts and Belgian yeast. The yams add a thick layer of decadence to the dark breads and malt. Banana is enhanced by them. Dark fruits are sitting on top of them. This is so pleasing to my nose I could smell it for days and still want more. A bit of earth balances the thick sweet breadiness, a light touch of alcohol adds a flourish. Taste is in line with the nose. Dark fruits and large slices of sweet brown bread in the front. Some notes of maple syrup. Earthy mellow hops to balance and bitter the finish. Complex spiciness that makes you wonder if it is spice or the basics. The usual holiday bouquet is here but is so well integrated you just enjoy it without focusing on it. Feel is supple with a light syrup consistency. Moderate carbonation is spot on and just a bit short of creamy when fresh poured. After a bit of time however the bubbles take on a gentle personality and add just enough movement to keep the beer from getting heavy. A nice experience overall on balance. Drinkability is surprising for a BSDA. This went down like a lager almost and with good food a real winner. A great beer for the holiday table as well as anytime Belgian dark urgings. Really good stuff here.

A- Pours a dark red-orange. Very Hazy. Small quarter inch head that dissipates quickly. Pretty good lacing that lasts throughout.

S- Sweet. Very fruity. Smells oddly of pumpkin, even though there is none in the beer. Some light berry notes.

T. Overpoweringly sweet. Can't taste any maple or molasses. Tastes a lot like apple cider.

M- Sugared apples and grape linger in the strong after taste. Not much as far as carbonation.

D- Tough to get through the full pint. Actually tossed a little bit in with my chicken to see if I could get any real pleasure out of this brew. To fruity, and sugary for this guy.

On tap at Aces and Ales, Las Vegas, $8 for 10 oz glass.

1 1/2 fingers of tan head, medium dissipation with not a lot of lacing. Nose is pretty complex, molasses, vanilla, nutmeg fairly noticeable, I had a hard time picking up any cinnamon notes. Taste is equally complex, sweetish up front, blackstrap molasses, grade A (light) maple syrup, with the above spice profile. I don't really know what the yams are supposed to add, imagine it adds to the sweetness. Medium mouthfeel, light for the style, light on effervescence, a bit sticky. ABV fairly noticeable, hidden by the sweetness, but not sure I'd want to have more than a glass of this. Could do some interesting holiday food pairings with this. Worth a try.

A wonderful growler from the great staff at Green's on Piney Grove Road in Columbia, SC. Kudos for their continued efforts on bringing outstanding offerings to Columbia!

Appearance - Toffee/amber in color, clear with a moderate carbonation and a moderate head as well. Good to see a balanced carbonation from a The Bruery product! Great thin head retained once the brunt faided.

Smell - Spice greets your nose. Some allspice, caramel and nutmeg round out your first impression. True to the expectation of this "harvest" ale.

Taste - Rich molasses and maple lead you into a very smooth initial presentation. Sweet middle with the alcohol making an appearance. Not as "boozy" as you would expect for a whopping 10.5% offering which adds to the drinkability. The finish again is filled with the sweet maple presence. Not much hop bite to temper the malty sweetness.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation fades over time to make this a bit thicker than expected. That combined with the malty/sweet body is a down tick for me. The linger is long on this beer.

Drinkability - I found myself coming back to this growler after the first glass. Drinking this cold seems to improve this offering, as this adds to keeping the CO2 in solution longer. A sipper? Sure. The ABV is high enough.

I poured this one from a 750ml crown capped brown bottle into 2 tall weizen-type glasses.

A= This one poured a cloudy brown/orange with a 3/4" tan head. The head dropped to a tiny ring and did not leave any lace behind.

S= Lots going on in the smell. I noted sweet and toasty malts, molasses, Belgian yeastiness, and a sort of starchy sweetness that must have been from the yams.

T= Started off sweet and stayed that way throughout. Some burnt/brown sugar notes along side toffee, sweet yams, raisins, and molasses. The yeast notes were rich and fruity. Finished heavy and sweet, but tasty.

MF= Heavy bodied with a medium carbonation level and a tongue coating viscocity.

D= Tasted pretty good but the heaviness and the abv combine to make this a one and done offering. Would make an excellent beer to cook with...possibly next Thanksgiving!

Appearance -- Pours a hazy brown with a finger of foamy parchment head.

Smell -- Toasted malt, maple sugar, molasses, vanilla, earthy yeast. Can't really find the yam influence.

Taste -- Taste is quite sweet with maple sugar and dark molasses, along with rum raisin and candied yams. Additionally there is some dark fruit presence and faint yeast and fermentation character. Overall, the sweet adjuncts overwhelm the base beer.

Mouthfeel -- Medium-full in body with moderate prickly carbonation.

Drinkability -- While Autumn Maple isn't a bad beer, it's by no means a great BSDA. Certainly interesting, a big hit with the family on Thanksgiving, but not something I'll be awaiting eagerly next Fall.

2009 vintage. Enjoyed with Thanksgiving dinner 2010.

750 ml bottle served cool into a goblet.

Autumn Maple is a redish orange amber color with a slight haze. The head is thick at first but doesn't linger long. Minimal lace is left behind.

Aroma is sweet and spicy with more than a hint of alcohol. The spices are most intense but none are immediately distinguishable. I get muddled cinnamon and clove, maybe some alspice.

Flavor is big too but, again, a lot of flavors integrated together. There seems to be a yam in there somewhere but the spices seem to dominate. The balance is good with not too much sweetness considering the maple/yam combination.

Mouthfeel is medium-full in body and low in carbonation. The alcohol is definately present and falls just shy of being "hot" even though it has cellared for over a year.

Overall a pretty good beer considering what they were going for. I know the Bruery goes big but the spice notes almost get in the way of enjoying this beer.

As far as a pairing with Thanksgiving, it was a very good call. It was especially good with the baked sweet potatoes.
