"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.

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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Whole Foods. Pours a translucent brown with creamy off white head that fades to wisp leaving frothy lacing. Aroma is sweet and spicy with vegetal complexity - mild yam. Flavor is sweet, reminiscent of a Belgian triple with candi sugar, cinnamon, and a note of sweet potato/pumpkin. Alcohol masked very well. Overly sweet, a little was plenty. Medium bodied, mild carbonation, creamy mouthfeel.

750 ml bottle. It smells like a pumpkin or sweet potato pie. Excellent dark amber brown color. This is my favorite Fall spiced beer. The taste is nutmeg, cinnamon, maple, yams, and apple cider with some bitterness and booze. More flavors develop as it warms to room temperature. Great Fall beer.
