KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle from St Fun. \,,/, Pours a thin, semi-waxy amber with a small off-white head. Nose is. Yam chunks, nutmeg, earthy sugarleaves, pumpkin pulp, and funky autumn barn after a heavy rain. Flavor is a biting funk of red wine, earthy yams, light nutmeg, musty syrup, and a touch of crisp autumn leaves. Light cherry funk in the finish. Average mouthfeel. Not bad, but not much maple in there, if at all.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2012
750ml bottle. Amber brown brew with very little head. Nose of caramel malts, yams, earth, and brett. This is an interesting take on the base beer with the earthy brett flavors nicely complimenting the sweetness of the yams.

Leighton (13270) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Great beer. The sweet maple character is present, but the brett eats into it wonderfully so that the beer is never too sweet. Strong but not boozy. A very creative beer, executed well.

fletchfighters (1202) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2012
A-- Poured a deep reddish brown. Honestly a strange looking hazy color. A light brown head that quickly went away and left a small bit of lacing. S-- A sort of strange funky smell. Get barnyard mixed with some yams and maple syrup. More funky barnyard than anything else. T-- Different, very different. A lot of spices, namely cinnamon. Maple syrup, some yams and oak. First thought was a sour ale on acid. M-- A little bit of sour, a little bit of sweet. How about all over the place. Lighter feel and more carbonated that I thought it would be. Not a lot of yams but more maple syrup. A little bit of barrel but not what I expected one bit.

Johnsense (922) - - AUG 9, 2012
Darker brown pour. Slight smoke and molasses in the aroma. Maple doesnít come into play until; you drink it - Maple Molasses, brown sugar, roasty. Good mouthfeel, though fairly sweet and rich making this an interesting dessert beer - Good, but one glass is enough.

Sammy (9256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle from IP with WomanCanítSail. Lovely, complex brew. Yet one cannot drink too much of it. Dark colour with lots of thick lace. Smoke, wild boar in the aroma. The taste is sweet and rich, with molasses and some cherry and smoke.

jbeatty (1148) - New York, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle, 06/19/2012. Mahogany pour, off-white head fades to swirling pattern on the surface, thin lacing. Aroma has brown candi sugar and light spices, maple-soaked baked yam, opens into dry fruity character. Taste has dark sugar, pumpkin pie, yam, light brett funk. Medium palate, low carbonation. Nice enough, but falls short of the bourbon aged version in my books.

smith4498 (3214) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle from a trade with peteinsd. Pours cloudy dark caramel color with off white head. Aromas of yams, cinnamon, brett, toffee, and brown sugar. Sweet yam and caramel flavors with brett and cinnamon. Very earthy. Medium body with moderate carbonation. I thought this was slightly better than the regular version. Thanks Peter.

Scopey (8329) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle, thanks to Evin. It pours cloudy amber, with a thin off-white head. The nose is spice, honey glazed ham, earth, maple and sweet yam. The taste is tangy dark fruit, raisin, fig, tinned nectarine, sweet potato, sweet maple, caramel, honey, spice, vinegar and alcohol warmth, with a dry, tangy finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. An interesting brew.

johnnnniee (2691) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Pours a deep reddish copper with a stingy off white head that even a vigorous pour could not bring up to size. Wow that is an odd aroma. Nutmeg crusted french fries smothered in ketchup is what I get initially. Thereís some dark fruits deep inside but the ketchup chips wonít leave my nostrils. Iím pleased to say that no fries remained in the flavor, but Iím also obliged to say how lackluster the flavor is. Thereís a nice sweet malty caramel and maple flavor up front but that only lasts for a second before the palette is assaulted with spices. This beer remains quite sweet but the spices destroy the flavor for me. Its like a sweet syrupy spice rack around Christmas time. Medium to thick body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet syrupy mouthfeel. I have to say that the base beer is not my favorite, but the 100% brett doesnít help it for me either. The bourbon version is tolerable, but I just donít get this beer.
