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 - 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.

Pours orange/crimson with a sliver of beige head. Loads lovely carbonation beads hug the side of the glass Minimal head retention && less lacing

S: Brown sugar, cinamon

T: Follows the nose, a touch of maple syrup sweetness/dryness up front, along with boozey pecans and cherry & sweet potatoes. More sweet tater, a bit of molasess, figs, pears, dryness as this warms, very warming . Finishes dry with yams, cinnamon, & brown sugar

Drinks very easy, much better than the first bottle I had last summer, both were purchased in North Carolina

3.6/5  rDev -4.5%

A: ruddy old brown color, some haze/sediment on bottom of bottle. Light brown head is diminishing.
S: as stated on the bottle-sweet potatoes, molasses, maple syrup dessert spices. An interesting take and unique.
T: saa. Full sweetness. Nothing to balance it out though. Minimal hop bitterness noted. Some rummy alcohol. A sipping/dessert beer.
M: glad this didn't suffer from carbonation issues I heard previous batches did. Full-bodied and viscous.
O:delivers exactly what the label description says. I could see needing to be in the mood for this one though, or as a dessert pairing.

3.48/5  rDev -7.7%

A - Pours a garnet brown color with a tan head and a huge level of carbonation. Semi-transparent when cold and clear when warms.

S - Candied yams, apple cider, tart aroma, maple syrup, vanilla and light oak. This is a very unique smelling beer, it smells good, but not sure if I like it.

T - Candied yams, caramel, Fall spices, apples, and reminds me a little of a pumpkin beer. Warming on the way down from the alcohol. There's also some molasses and cinnamon flavor coming through with yam and caramel sweetness.

M - Thick, full bodied and heavy. Lip smacking sticky and leaves a clove/nutmeg/caramel/cinnamon aftertaste.

O - Better than I expected but still not one I would seek out again.
