Burnished copper color. Looks a bit like a pumpkin pie beer. Tastes like it, with mostly spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Brewmaster said the idea was to lay down a base for a spicy beer, since potatoes add little more than fermatables to a beer. This is nicely turned out if you like spices outside of a hefeweiss.

I have had several Pumpkin Ales this fall, and so had to try this.
I have had Sweet potatoe pie and it is a close cousin to pumpkin pie, so this should be similar.

Pour was light coper cloudy with ivory white head

Smell was spicy and sweet.

Taste was sweet, full and spicy; much more full than some of the pumpin ales we tried earlier in the fall.

It probably doesn't hurt that it is the day before Thanksgiving and we are all thinking about Turkey & Sweet Potatos.

Very nice ! I would drink this anytime

A - Orange body with a half inch of white head that is quick-lived.

S - The aroma contains that of slight cinnamon.

T - The brew has a bitterness to it alongside cinnamon, brown sugar and nutmeg. However, the beer is not sweet.

M - It's coarse and actually not very easy to drink. The only benefit of the texture is that it brings out some of the flavors.

~ I'm certainly glad I gave this one a try simply because of the uniqueness of it. That being said, I'll never have this one again.
