bytemesis (4647) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle with thanks to dbuckingham! Pours clear hazel ruby with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma is caramel, yam, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), brown sugar. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, no real bitterness, little acid. Medium body, low carbonation. A bit hot. Just not my thing, but definitely an improvement over the regular (either due to Brett or age, not sure.). I will say that neither I nor my drinking buddy got much Brett influence from the bottle. Maybe it died off a couple years ago.

Meilby (9625) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle 750ml @ The Bruery, Placentia, CA
Pours hazy brown with a few off-white bubbles. Aroma has notes of malt, toffee, spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, brett, alcohol and fruits. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm, fruity, toffee, spicy finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

yngwie (15382) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at the taproom. Slightly hazy, amber in color, more or less headless. Mostly sweetish on the nose, some alcohol and maple syrup. Lightly spiced too. Warming on the palate, full bodied and flat. Lasting flavor with maple syrup, caramel and a touch of spices and tropical fruits. A bit boring this one. 130811

Haslinger (874) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
750mL bottle shared with kegbear, pours a nice red brown, smells like a fresh baked pumpkin pie with a hint of booze thrown in, the taste is sweet yam, just like some delicious southern sweet potato pie. Some sweet molasses in the finish. Tastes like Thanksgiving dinner should be. Wonderful beer!

Ibrew2or3 (7478) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 29, 2013
75cl bottle pours with a murky amber body that has some ruby red hues and supports a brief tan head. The aroma offers up smooth sweetness, molasses and a thin soft vinegar note. The taste achieves a pleasing balance of smooth slick molasses and syrupy prunes and lightly earth sweetness mixing with soft smooth vinegar and light sugar sweetened soured citrus sort of sensation. This is dangerously drinkable with this kind of even balance. Nice!

JStax (3778) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a darker amber with a beige head. Aroma is sweet and musty. Almost cider-like.

emacgee (4377) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Pours a clean and clear ruby orange with a head that doesn’t want to stick around. Nose is rich and kind of sweet and spicy with some oxidized notes. Lots of body and sweet malt/yam flavor. Oxidized malt and meh flavors. Tons of body.

merc7186 (2568) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2013
The beer pours decent with a solid hazy reddish brown hue, a mild white ring of head, and mild lacing on the glass. The beer smells great with a nice blend of maple, yams, raisins, mild plum, and definitely brett. The beer tastes great with yams and maple syrup prominent...you get the brett all over the flavor too. The mouthfeel is decent with a definite sweet bitterness from the yams and maple and the beer was well carbonated. Overall, you definitely get brett all over the beer, a solid fall beer.

It’s very nice to know someone has your back. Mike shared this with me. I had been wanting to try this for a long time. Yam, muted brett, pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg. A lot of delicious spices. Right up my alley. Smooth minimal carbonation if any. A little vegetal and licorice in the finish.

libertine (286) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2013
pours burgundy with a huge head that quickly dissipates. first thing I get when I put my nose to the glass is a huge burst of yeast. smell is strong of cinnamon and nutmeg. molasses and maple are in the background of the aroma. as the beer warms the maple and molasses seem to be coming out more and balance the cinnamon and nutmeg. flavor is everything the label describes yams, molasses, maple and spice and has a slight tartness for a sour. once again as the beer warmed it became much more pleasant to drink. i had this in my refrigerator at about 40 degrees. I see that on the bottle it says to serve at 55. I would definitely suggest anyone who drinks this follows this. I actually raised my ratings as this beer warmed. medium body, low carbonation and stjcky mouthfeel. finish is at first sweet and then becomes acidic. didn’t like it at first but as it warmed this is a pretty damn good beer.
