COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is made in the pumpkin beer tradition, except instead of pumpkins we used yams, and lots of them! A big Belgian-style brown ale of 10% ABV, this one is bringing pumpkin beers (or yam beers) into new territory.

Aroma: intense caramel, some cider, spices, pumpkin. Appearance: hazy brown, small, beige head. Taste: heavy sweet. Palate: initial sweets continue, turning light sour, heavy malts, then sour spices. Overall: interesting pumpkin ale, a bit too sour. Pint at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - Liberty Station, San Diego.

dnstone (2157) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Copper color with white head. Aroma is quite sweet with a definitive Belgian yeast spice and dry fruit character. Sweet with the nice dry fruit and spice notes. Tastes like a pumpkin despite the yams with a hint of tartness on the edges. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butters (3811) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2014
dull brown pour with minimal clearish head. Notes of chestnuts, brown sugar, maple syrup, molasses, tobacco, and a slight bit vegetal. An easy sipper with just a hint of booziness on the tail end that is quite enjoyable.

floydslip (189) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Nice looking deep chestnut brown beer with a thick foamy light tan head. Sweet nose of pumpkin pie spice, roasted root vegetables, and a bit of sour yeast. Flavor is definitely on the sweet side and is reminiscent of baked sweet potatoes with marshmallow topping infused with spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. I wish the hops counterbalanced it a bit more, but this is still a unique and drinkable beer. Too sweet though.

Beergeek23322 (2432) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2014
10/4/2014. From bottle. Dark amber with a white head. Yeasty aromas with spices, pumpkin, honey. Yeast is showing in every sip, but is offset by the sweet spicy flavors. The 10% alcohol does not show at all. Very mellow and enjoyable.
