Copper color with white head. Aroma is quite sweet with a definitive Belgian yeast spice and dry fruit character. Sweet with the nice dry fruit and spice notes. Tastes like a pumpkin despite the yams with a hint of tartness on the edges.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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."
