Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Fall

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.

ABV: 10%, IBU: 25, SRM: 15, Release: Fall

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.

look: 3 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.25 | overall: 1.5

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!

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Undated 25.4 oz/750 mL bottle at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma muddled – no distinctly identifiable odors beyond sweet and aromatic
Head average (3 cm), light brown, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to partial 2 mm layer
Lacing none
Body medium brown, opaque
Flavor begins sweet, a salmagondis which makes each unique flavor unidentifiable but blends into a flavorable whole; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium to full, creamy, soft carbonation

This is hard to evaluate – it’s supposed to be a brown ale and it’s definitely brown and sweet, but the flavor is so mixed up that nothing stands out except a continual sweetness.
