Availability: Fall

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

The Bruery's Autumn Maple, Belgian-style brown ale brewed yams, molasses, maple syrup, and spices. 10% ABV.

A: Just over a finger of slightly fluffy head. Good carbonation noticeable from the quick sizzle as the glass is tipped. Very little lacing. Some slight lacing. The beer is a medium plum/yam skin orange-red. Yellow in the dimple. Bubbles are very tiny, and slide up the inside of the glass nicely.

S: Lots of baked yam scent. Cinnamon, nutmeg. Some slight maple glaze (as you might find in said yam dish, rather than as a separate component). Some toasted cereal grain hiding in the back. Nice, while not overbearing.

T/MF: More yams, but yam skin comes across on the palate. More spice. Slight grass and dirt on the finish. A bit of sourness on the mid-tongue. Not unpleasantly so. Not quite as good on the palate as the smell would lead me to believe, but still good.

Poured from a 750mL bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.
