UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Overall very good beer. I was disappointed with the lack of maple flavor. If you did a blind taste test it would be hard to pick out that it is a maple beer. It comes across as a very good Belgium double with pumpkin spices.
Not Bad Just Disappointed.

Pours hazy brown with minimal head. Nose is pumpkin yam kinda deal, smells sweet and somewhat spiced. Taste is a bit bizarre. Sweet, yammy, get some maple syrup and maybe molasses, lightly spiced. The finish is very strange, it sticks on my tounge and isn't very pleasant. Interesting change of pace from the standard pumpkin, not sure if it's a winner. Can taste the 10%

Very weird beer. Not good weird. A lot of weird flavors. The yam I suppose is the main one I donít like. I see where they were trying to go with it but I donít think it worked.

Poured as a small taster. Aromas of yam, molasses, and maple along with pumpkin spices. Tastes: pumpkin spices, sweet yams, maple, and deliciously complex. Itís like Thanksgiving dinner in a bottle.

Pours a beautiful radiant ruby reddish amber. Medium beige head, fairly lasting. Aroma bursts from the glass; malt/caramel, yam/pumpkin-like, pie spices, maple/sugar, balanced sweetness and spices. Flavor much the same but a bit more subdued, little herbal and fruity. Medium body, balanced sweetness and spices, some booze. A sipper. Not my fav autumn beer, but still a well-made one.

Maple syrup, tons of spices, some yam for sure. Rich and sweet. Tastes very similar. A little alcohol taste, very sweet, some pumpkin pie like spices, smooth. Maybe slightly bitter at the end, something leaves a little funny taste in my mouth.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Deep Reddish/Orange Hue, Passes Almost No Light, Nice Off Brown Head that dissapates into a thick ring, Good Lacing
S: Sweet Potato, Brown Sugar, Mild Raisins
T: Sweet Potato, Raisins, Brown Sugar, Mild Cinnamon
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet
Overall, a really nice take of a not widely used fruit/vegetable. Has a similar base taste of a pumpkin without the over spicing, a fine fall beer.

Belated birthday beer gift bag from the brother inlaw. Pours pretty orange brown with nice head. Nose is slight pumpkin spice. Tastes of sweet potatoes, nutmeg, caramel, earth, and touch medicinal. Alcohol present on finish and overall a touch thinner than expected.

Draft at Sweetgrass. Deep amber pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet malts, brown sugar, spices and starchy sweet potatoes. Sweet similar flavor up front with yammy sweetness mid palate and ending on the spices. Medium bodied and nice carbonation. Not bad.
