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.

The thing about this beer is, it tastes a lot like most fall, pumpkin/squash beers.
and the heavy alcohol taste is not very appealing when it comes to being a drinkable beer.

It pours a dark brown, with a golden tint to it.

Smells kinda nice. It has those herbal spices, maybe a faint maple or "molasses" .
It also smells like it might have a heavy alcohol content.

The thing I don't like about the taste, is that the 10% alcohol is kind of in your face.
There are cinnamon and other spices apparent, and a faint taste that I get from most pumpkin/squash beers. I can taste a bit of good things going on in here, but its a little overpowered.

The mouthfeel was not that pleasant, and the people with me agreed.

A-Pours a brownish caramel. Thin, disjointed head of individual bubbles. Not much lace.

S-Very sweet of course. Lots of caramel and brown sugar. Some alcohol. Some autumnal spices.

T-The yams come through a bit. A bit like mashed sweet potato. Rich, full brown sugar and caramel. Maple syrup, cinnamon and the entire medley of Fall spices. High octane. Dark fruitiness.

M-Slow sipper for sure. Subtle carbonation. Body is full but not quite viscous. Alcohol comes out.

O/D-One glass is enough for me. A big, rich Fall beer. Probably won't have it again but it was unique and worth a pour.

The pour is a dark orangey brown, with not much head at all. The aroma is heavy in cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. The taste is actually a nice combo of the spices as well. I'm a little disappointed that there isn't more of a maple flavor though. The mouth feel is great, and it hangs around just long enough to let the palate experience the spices.
