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

Appearance is a muddy brownish copper with golden edges. There is about a half finger of head that dissipates fairly quickly. The nose is complex - maple, pumpkin and assorted fall spices. The taste starts off mildly tart and the flavor builds to include seasonal spices and yams. There are both sweet and dry notes on the finish along with a slight alcohol warmth. This is a pretty complex offering that would be perfect alongside turkey with all the trimmings.

A: The beer is very hazy caramel amber in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. When viewed from a distance, the beer is opaque. It poured with a finger high beige colored head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of yams and pumpkin pie spices are present in the nose—nutmeg and cinnamon seem to stand out in particular.
T: The overall taste mostly follows the smell and has hints of brown sugar and associated sweetness from this and the yams.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is surprisingly drinkable for such a strong beer as it manages to hide its alcohol very well. It's a nice alternative to a pumpkin beer if you are looking for something seasonal to have during the autumn months, such as during Thanksgiving dinner.
