We’ve waited all summer for this moment, when the sweet potato can be harvested for the brewing of this highly anticipated seasonal ale. Taste and enjoy with us one of our favorite things about fall.

I guess this is a twist on the pumpkin beer thing, lotsa spice and nothing else. This stuff is like an avalanche of cloves on a mountain of nutmeg. It smells like mincemeat pie, all sweet raisin and mounds of spice. It’s surprisingly dry though, sort of oddly watery but still briskly carbonated. It does not have the harsh clove bitterness I’d expect from so much spice, which is a positive, I suppose, but overall this is extremely one dimensional. If you like that dimension, give this a try, but this might be worth looking over if you want anything subtle.

muzzlehatch (4831) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 17, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Valli Produce in Rockford, IL, served a few minutes out of the fridge in a pint glass. Slightly murky copper, moderate white head decays quickly leaving a clean glass...overwhelmingly pie-spicy nose - ginger, cinnamon a bit, and especially clove and nutmeg; if there’s any malt or hops in this beer you wouldn’t know it by the aroma...body is very different, mostly quite dry going all the way through, with very little pie sweetness or really much of anything else, just a bare hint of malt and some bitterness at the end that reminds me more of burnt herbs than hops...there’s also an unpleasant sourness to the body, a bit of a spoiled milk character...watery, overly carbonated, this comes off to me as club soda with some spices and soured cream dumped in it. I had some of this a few years ago, back when I wasn’t rating, and remembered it being bad but not why; seeing a bottle for .99 I couldn’t resist, masochist that I am, but it’s even worse than I remembered. Simply horrible.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass, purchased at Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Medium orange and light hazy appearance with a white head, eventually fully dissipating. Aroma of sweet potatoes, breaded malt, light pumpkin, caramel, toffee, light fruity esters and hints of herbs and spices. Similar flavor, moderately sweet with light bitterness. Light to medium body with ample carbonation and a lingering finish. Nicely balanced and easy to drink. Not bad overall, slightly better than expected.

Bottled. Dark brown. Lots of carbonation. Has a upfront bold sweet taste. The aftertaste is where the sweet potatoe flavor comes in.
