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.

Pours a rich woody-red color with virtually no head. Aroma of pumpkin spices. Big flavor of yams, which works surprisingly well, spice, and some notes that remind me of rum-raisin ice cream. For all of that, the body is on the thin side, and combining that with the lack of carbonation, the beer is somewhat unsatisfying. There is less alcohol warming than I'd expect for 10% ABV. Tasty, but not really in a beery way. A worthwhile experiment, worth trying, but not something I'd likely buy again.

Served in a tulip glass and had it on tap.
This years version was the highlight on tap but from the bottle not so much. I guess it does makes a difference. You get spice, nutmeg, slightly hot but drinkable. The color is maple syrup brown but the taste not so much. The overall taste is balanced on tap with the bold flavors of liquid yams, spices, sweet mouthful of goodness. The bottle is lack of any of yams and its heat(alcohol) overpowers it. It's very inconsistent to what I tasted on tap then from the bottle. Go figure! Cheers.

taste: Dimetapp, Vicks, formented yams, metal

Overall: Really bad! Drain Pour.

Mouthfeel : Please get this out of my mouth ASAP

The only beer I have ever had from the Bruery. My other BA friend shared this and agreed with pouring the left over 2/3 down the drain.

I realize experimentaion is how you create new product. This seems like a mistake they brewed to much of and said well.... Lets put it in a fancy bottle with a fancy label and someone will buy it. Please dont. YUK!

Bottle Pours a murky brown amber with a good light tan head. The head is lasting and laces okay. Has a sweet aroma of yams, spices, and maple syrup. The carbonation is good. Has a good flavor with spices and a slight burn. Has a full body. The texture is watery but it is the best watery beer I have tasted. Has a good finish and a nice aftertaste. This is a good beer.

Poured into my DT tulip glass. Thanks for the trade Mattolish!

Brownish color. No head or carbonation. No lacing at all. Totally flat beer. Cinnamon cloves and pumpkin/yam in both the nose and taste of this beer. A bit sweet with great flavor.

If I were judging this purely on flavor it would get very high marks. Maybe the best tasting "pumpkin" beer I have had. The total lack of carbonation killed it for me. It was so flat that it ruined the mouth-feel and drinkability of this one .

I hope if they brew this again that they adjust the carbonation of this beer. If they do I would highly recommend this one.
