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

Pours a burnt orange/brown with a slight brownish head. Smelled sweet and vegetal like some brown sugar and molasses coated yams. Some alcohol showed itself. Flavor followed suit. A medium bodied mouthfeel, not much life to it. Overall, I enjoyed the beer but not sure I need to try it again.

Served in a tulip glass at Gourmet Haus Stadt.

A: Light tan head. Murky amber auburn. Translucent.

S: Spices. Boring malt. Distant fruit.

T/M: Honestly, it tastes a lot like a pumpkin beer. The spices (clove? allspice?) are similar, as is the general flavor. The yams might be a tad tarter? Puckery and moreish. The mouthfeel is a bit smooth, but the body is substantial. I really enjoy it.

O: Another great Bruery experience. Recommended. Would have again, especially as a pumpkin alternative.

Had this at Liquid Bread in DT Campbell.

Smelled wayyyy better than it was. Good, but not awesome. Way too sweet for my taste, but it has its place. Breakfast beer maybe? I'd try it with my waffle/pancake breakfast.

Had to have been 29 pounds of yams!, super sweet. Way more so than a typical barley wine, and those I have trouble with at times.

Good beer if you like sweet sticky beer.

Would give it another shot, this time with breakfast.
