Poured into my CBS snifter
Poured dark brown with lots of bubbles, hardly any head.
Smells of sweet potatoes along with some pumpkin pie spice.
Flavor is similar. Sweet potato/yam really comes out. Some brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg as well. Really sweet and malty.
Low carbonation levels and a thick syrupy mouthfeel.
This one didn't do it for me at all. Too sweet and the low carbonation only enhanced that. Wasn't a horrible beer, but a drain pour nonetheless because it was too sweet to finish even between 2 people.

Poured into a pint glass.
A - At first pour it had a small head and then quickly dissipates into a dark root beer color and actually looked like coca cola in a pint glass. This large bubbles formed in the bottom and around the pint glass.
S - Thanksgiving dinner in a bottle! Sweet potato and pecan pie which follows through with a light smell of apricots. The smell is complex but you can differentiate between the spices which i can smell nutmeg, cinnamon & cloves.
T - First initial taste it was Thanksgiving in a bottle. The sweet potatoes shine but finish with almost sweet carrots which turns to an apricot finish. The spices that i described above are a little subdued but hit you at the aftertaste.
M - Lightly carbonated and was one of the most deliciously carbonated beers i have had in awhile for a belgian style brown ale. It had a nicer almost stouty beer feel but then it was smooth and then it felt like a brown ale but easily drinkable.
O - I was impressed had it on tap and it seemed like that keg was flat but this second time in the bottle it was able to keep a great carbonation and i can't wait to open more of them in the next upcoming years.

A - Pours a super cloudy copper-brown with a finger of frothy tan-brown head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some light lace.
S - Aroma is full of maple syrup, sweet yams, rich caramel malts, molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon and clove, and some light dark fruit and booze.
T - Starts off with some rich maple syrup with some brown sugar and a bit of spice. Through the middle, some yams comes through with some molasses, cinnamon, clove, and a touch of raisin. The finish is a mix of strong spices with some more yam, molasses, and some light booze.
M - Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation. Feels smooth with a thick, sweet, and spicy finish.
D - Very drinkable. Lots of complex flavors that really come together nicely. I like the maple syrup and the yams and I think they really create a great unique flavor here.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark, murky brown with a red tint. One finger fine light brown head with little retention, but some lacing. Aroma dominated by yam, with spices, almost cola-like and faint sweet malt. Interesting flavor of caramel, maple and sweet yam; cinnamon and nutmeg. Finish of caramel malt ending somewhat dry with some tannic elements. Body is medium, somewhat creamy. Somehow this works nicely, this is a tasty autumn ale. Could have been cloying, but the slightly dry finish balances the flavors nicely, althouth the tannins were a bit of an off flavor. Overall, I really liked this beer and will buy annually.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a hazy dense brown body with a glowing base and a creamy light tan head that last for a good bit. There is a microbubble net that glides up the side of the glass.
S- The light cidery note gives way to a melanoidin toffee note in the finish.
T- The cidery flavor has some yeasty ester character to follow with a brassy molasses tang in the finish with a iodine yeast flavor that lingers a bit. There is a sweet potato note that comes through a bit in the last few glasses.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a soft alcohol warmth that grows as the beer opens up.
O- The well-blended flavors make it a bit mute with the iodine molasses brassy character sticking out and not any real malt character or other flavor to grab on to.

A - Pours a deep copper, almost rustic brown. A thin white almost cream half finger head. No lacing to speak of on the glass.
S - Yams and syrup along with spices. May'be some raisins or prunes. A lot going on in this snifter.
T - Sweet caramel, brown sugar, deep raisins, figs and a hint of spices.
M - Light carbonation, not heavy on the palette.
O - I'm glad I got to try it. I don't usually seek out pumpkin/yam beers, but this was a pleasant surprise. Well done The Bruery!

A- Pours a really nice ruby red color with a nice 1 finger head. Has a little lacing on the glass
S-Has a nice carmel aroma up front followed by some spices like clove and cinnamon and it also has a good amount of booze smell to it as well
T- Wow. a lot of flavors going on and i'm not sure thats a good thing. It has a brown sugar flavor up front followed by a peppery molasses flavor and then ends with a yeasty funk to it
M-Medium to light bodied with decent carbonation
D-Overall this was a decent beer but i was excepting a lot more from it.. It had a nice nose to it but the flavors did not translate. It was very spicy and peppery and was hard to pick out exact flavors. I would not seek this out again but would prob. drink a glass if offered.

3.45/5 rDev -8.7%
A: Pours a rusty brown hue with a finger of off white head that dissipates slowly
S: smells sweet and of spice and yeast
T: sweet caramel and yam flavor on the palate with some cinnamon and some spicy yeast character. Slightly bitter aftertaste with a lingering yeast and spice presence.
M:light on the palate without being watery and carbonation that is prickly after sitting on the tongue for awhile but is not overbearing
O: A nice twist on the fall beer style that is along the same lines but delightfully different. Good, but not great.
