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.

maekchu (2059) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2014
Bomber from CCB in Osaka. Yeast, big earthy notes with spice and light chocolate and moderate fumes. Dark brown/ruby color with a thick head that dissipates within a minute. Strong mix of dark fruit flavors, mild citrus and cinnamon, yams notes balance it out. Really hard to suss out individual flavor notes. Medium body. Very rich flavor-forward stuff. Elegant and not overly sweet. A great take on a traditional style.

Bottle. Murky brownish orange. Minimal head. Nose full of spices like a pie. Taste is similar with some marshmallow and vanilla. Very creamy and full. Tasty but kinda muddled. Maybe they shook it before pouring it for me.
