750ml into a French jelly glass on Halloween night.
A - Brown and slightly hazy with a very large, tan, pillowy head that persists. Unable to evaluate carbonation by appearance.
S - Mild honey and maple syrup with a faint cherry-like fruity aroma. Some farmhouse-ale like phenols also noted - leaving an impression of allspice.
T - Distinctive honey and maple syrup flavors mix well with a slightly toasty and rich brown ale. Finish is moderately sweet with only the faintest noble-type bitterness. Very much leaves an impression of candied yams. Maple flavor lasts a long time. Slightly warming.
M - Medium to heavy body with light carbonation.
O - A real autumn treat; if you like maple syrup, don't wait for this one.

Found this fella on sale... somewhere in Denver. Couldn't pass up the chance to try out a beer with squash and maple syrup. I am a sucker for weird beers.
Poured into a Hitachino Nest glass, crackling khaki tone head flares up and crackles away quickly leaving a sparse, and broken grainy map of bubbles on the surface of a deep ruby to rust coloured brew. Orange tints in light areas with a sort of brown toasty shade accompanying it.
The smell is pretty nice. Has quite a few gentle touches to it. You pick up the toasty malts. A small amount of orange peel, some brown sugar, a hint of vegetal squash and then the lingering sticky scent of maple that catches my attention quite potently at the end.
The taste is a quite toasty. Almost a toasted bread flavor. This is layered over by some herbal hops that dry the beer out a bit. I definitely taste the tones of squash. It almost reminds me of acorn squash with a bit of butter and brown sugar. The maple is present but no more present than the squash is. The beer is quite balanced and subtle. But quite pleasant. It's absolutely frigid, but I could imagine drinking this in the fall or during a Thanksgiving dinner and this would be awesome. This beer and smoked turkey would be awesome.
Mouthfeel is pretty average. Fairly dry, not very bitter. On the lighter medium side. Crisp and pretty drinkable. A tad tacky with the sweetness. Not much to say. The carbonation is nice but nothing out of the ordinary for a beer of this body.
Overall it is a pretty good beer. As mentioned, I got this at a sale price and I feel satisfied. If I payed the original cost of $12-$13... I would have felt a bit down about it. It's good, it is interesting, it is not so unusual it would turn off a beginner in adventuring into odd beers but wouldn't hurt the veteran to try.
