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.

Thanks to paulxqx for the hook-up!

This one pours a very nice, light, ruby color with golden brown tinting. Three-fingers of creamy tan foam make the head. It recedes to a thin surface covering. Lacing is thick and fairly sticky.

This has to be one of the best smelling beers I've ever had. It smells wonderful. The yams and spices are most noticable, but the maple notes also come out nicely. There's also something else....pecans, maybe?

This is delicious! Wonderful yam flavors shine through. The spices are very nice and right out in the open. They are balanced by a very nice maple flavor and sweetness. A very mild hint of molasses keeps it all grounded. All of this sits on top of a nice malty base.

Full-bodied with a medium-to-full level of carbonation. Very smooth and easy to drink. It has a nice level of creaminess, which I like.

The abv level is a bit high. While I don't taste it, I am certainly starting to feel it, at the halfway point in this 25oz. bottle. Other than that though, it's super tasty and easy to drink.

A: Poured a sparkling clear Light brown color with a tan head that is decent but not persistent.

S: A lot to take in with a sweet yam/ pumpkin pie spice aroma and a baked brown bread and roasted/caramel malt backbone and some fruity esters from the yeast. Some raisins and currants add a bit to the mix. Hops hard to get a hold of but somewhat earthy.

T: Sweet potato pie, caramel, fresh baked brown bread, molasses, pumpkin pie spice, and a decent hit of roasted barley. Some esters are there from the yeast and rum soaked raisins come to mind with the hit of alcohol in the background after a few sips.

M: Medium body with some tight, crisp, prickly carbonation.

D: I would recommend this beer to anyone who likes brown ales. It definitely takes it to another level with yams, spices and generous alcohol. Serve it up at Thanksgiving or keep it to yourself on a nice fall evening.

A: deep ruby brown ale with a firm 2-finger head of tawny foam; some lacey drapes and motes cling to the glass

S: face-palm of exactly what's advertised: sweet yams, maple and molasses

T: this is a good beer if you're into imperial pumpkin-style ales - it's sweet, with lots of sweet savory flavors - almost as if someone food-processed Thanksgiving sweet potatoes with marshmallows and infuded that into a brown ale; some vegetal notes

M: a little tacky/chalky aftertaste to this filling and medium-bodied beer; alcohol is well-masked

O: I do like imperial pumpkin ales, and this is reminiscent of them - very autumnal, very seasonally flavored and sweet - truly a good beer

When poured, a dark, hazy maple brow with very little foam and absoutle no lace. The smell had a sour/sweet aroma, with maple and spices. The taste had a sweet/sour/salty flavor of sweet/sour/salty spices, maple and candy. This Fruit/Vegetable Beer was to sour/salty for my palate. The flavor was short, but the saltyness just stayed to long on the aftertaste. For me a waste of money and time!
