BEER INFO

The Bruery
California, United States

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

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.

Brewed with molasses and spices, this is my first beer from the Bruery, and won't be the last if you ask me.
What a wonderful beer, has a nice sweetnes to it from the maple syrup.

From a growler via DEps in northern Kentucky. This ale pours a luminous....
well....lightly cloudy yam with brown sugar color and sports a nice head of
off white foam that settles to a thick ring, thin layer, and light lacing. Nose of
Thanksgiving yams with brown sugars with cinnamon and allspice being the most
prevalent. Flavors exceed the nose with yam and cinnamon notes touched modestly
by allspice and nutmeg that shine on the rear adding to the herbal notes with a subtle
hop character in there for good measure. Nice mouth feel; medium body, lightly
prickly medium carbonation, and a lightly dry finish with nutmeg coming through
on the aftertaste. Overall a solid offering that isn't pumpkin-ed to death and
pretty well balanced for the style.

Cheers

The beer is a light brown color with a lot of active carbonation. The beer is hazy and the slight head it did had did not last long. The beer gives off a strong aroma of yams. Despite the higher ABV I do not get a strong alcohol smell. You can smell the cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar and other fall spices. The taste is very similar to the aroma but you get a little more alcohol flavoring. The beer has a nice warm feeling to it and great carbonation. It sticks to your mouth and the sweetness sticks in your mouth.

Overall, a great beer! It tastes like crushed Christmas cookies (I came up with this description on my own... I swear). Drinks smooth, with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Definitely worth seeking out and trading for!

Pours cloudy hazy maroon red-amber with a dense creamy light khaki colored foam head. Smells like yams, sweet spice, toasted malt, red apple, vanilla, molasses, maple syrup, banana, dark fruits, dried fruit, funky peppercorns, hay, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like yams, sweet spice, toasted bready cracker, red apple, vanilla, molasses, maple syrup, banana, dark fruits, dried fruit, mild peppercorn funk, some hay, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, thick and syrupy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a real nice and unique beer.
