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.

75 cl bottle @ home
Aroma is somewhat spicy and sweet with maple syrup(!). Also some root beer tones. Flavour is spicy with syrupy tones, some caramel and herbal tones. Also some toffee candy. I’ve waited for a long to tick this one – and after all that this was a disappointment. Too spicy, like an imperial pumpkin ale.

tiong (3647) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
750ml bottle

Pours dark reddish orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of spices, sweet caramel, toffee, syrup, ripe fruits and berries. Taste is sweet, sticky and stuffy with loads of caramel, syrup, ripe fruits, berries and toffee. Finish is stuffy, sticky and sweet with loads of syrup, ripe fruits and caramel notes. Way too sweet for my taste.

750 ml bottle. Pours a reddish mahogany with light head and lots of carbonation. Aromas of baconish resin, spice, and something like yam fries. Tastes similar. Typical pumpkin type beer. Pass.

Fra flaske på Alehouse, Riga 8 Okt 13 i selskap med hyggelige kollegaer fra jobben. Dyp amber. Lavt lagskum. Litt uklar. Søt fruktaroma. Smaken er også søt frukt. Litt kjedelig. Hadde forventet mer.

gEUS (997) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours hazy deep amber with no head. Aroma of rose water, plums, cinnamon and glühwein herbs and spices. Medium palate with warm sweetness and bits of alcohol glowth. Taste is oaky with warm spices (cinnamon, cloves, karadmom). Tasty winter warmer but lacks some kick in the (Christmas) balls.

Thebullshornbar (72) - Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2014
A pretty big beer with a some booziness offset by a decent amount of residual sugars, spices, and esters. Among those qualities, the vegetal component really stands out in the finish and not in a good way. This is only accented by the Belgium yeast which usually adds a nice tartness but only accents the off-putting vegetal notes. Overall, there is a lot going on here some good, some bad, but really disjointed.
