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.

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.

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.

"this was a well done spiced ale...no subtleties in the aroma and flavor. there right there front and center. pumpkin pie-ish and strong flavored. the body is a tad over carbonated, but this is a nice beer. the maple aspect is actually in the background and i found myself wanting a little more."

Murky brownish orange. Minimal head. Nose full of spices like a pie. Taste is similar with some marshmallow and vanilla. Very creamy and full but overly sweet for my taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml. Dark brown with a lasting ring of cream. Aroma is maple and brown sugary booze, with a touch of dry grass. Tastes of sweet booziness with a bit of dry, spicy Belgian yeast. No pumpkin or yam flavors appear, just a big Belgian, sweet mess that could have been a contender. Medium heavy body is sweet and a bit too boozy.

Bottle (750ml $11): reddish brown with big tan head. Strong aroma of yams and spices. Some funkiness. Tasted the same plus a sweetness. As it warmed there was booze warming in the end. Medium plus carbonation. Seemed like a spicy Belgium beer. Nice
