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.

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

Thanks to mikedashg for sharing one of these. had it before, but never reviewed.

pours a ruddy brownish caramel with some head that recedes quickly and leaves no lace. i think this might be due to the glass shape, because other people at the tasting got a lot of head and lace. we all were vigorously swirling them too, which is sort of weird.

Smells of sweet brown sugar and there's a slight smell of yams, but not what you would expect. There's very mild spice, but it's not prevalent.

Instantly there's a spiciness that isn't overwhelming, but not so light that I'd call it subtle. The sweetness in the nose shows up in the form of sugar and candied yams. The spice and sweet blend very well and there's even a slight hint of nutmeg that rounds everything out.

Overall, this is a good light bodied holiday brew. It was great for a seasonal tasting.

NOTE: Having this side by side with BA Autumn Maple I really think this one is better. There's more subtlety to it, but I'll get into that in my review of the BA version.
