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

(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.

3.75/5  rDev -0.5%

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!

3.83/5  rDev +1.6%

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 -8.5%

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.

750ml bottle
Served in a tulip glass

A - The color lies somewhere between burnt orange and copper with a proliferation of red and orange hues. Over three inches of beige head tops it.

S - The aroma is cider-like. There are tart and sweet smells. I get cherry and sour apple.

T - The taste reminds me of a combination of a cider and a saison. I get some tart and funky tastes and well as some fruit with a dry finish.

M - Moderate with lots of carbonation.

O - I had been wanting to try this beer. I am glad I did. I don't believe that I will purchase it again though. It was a novelty to try it. It is an interesting beer, but not something to drink a lot of.
