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.

suprchunk (2343) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Brilliant reddish orange colored pour. Medium-sized orange tinted tan head. Some lacing as it quickly recedes. Alcohol up front. Some spicy sweet aroma of malt and burnt sugar. A little hot in the first sip. Sweet in the back. Kind of a mess. Too hot, and not much in the way of variety in the mouth. Too cloying. Not overly offensive, but still.

Bottle. Beautiful deep reddish-brown color. Fragrant aroma of ripe banana. The yam flavor is quite pronounced. Sweet and velvety flavor and palate. This is a delicious winter beer to be savored.

(Bottle) The best spiced beer there is. Really really great beer. On the sweeter side with lots of complexity without being overwhelming. Lovely Autumn beer.

750mL bottle poured into a tulip -- Aroma and appearance are quite impressive. The flavor doesn’t follow through very well. A metallic flavor dominates throughout. Otherwise, very impressive caramel, candy, pumpkin pie spice, and yeast combination. Very disappointed with the metallic bit.

From Costco. Poured ruby red. Tan head. Lots of lacing. Nose of pie. Medium body. Smooth in the mouth. Alcohol not tasted. Flavor is interested with yams tasting really good and there is spice in the finish. Really easy to drink. Liked it a lot.

fraynoyes (5) - Astoria, USA - NOV 15, 2014 does not count
Exceptionally smooth beer for the ABV, very tasty. The maple is not a stand out flavor, tastes more like a pumpkin beer. For a somewhat similar taste and comparable ABV for less, I would stick with Southern Tier Pumking.

hotstuff (4284) - Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Rated on 11-08-2014 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a huge foamy vanilla head that mostly diminishes, slightly hazy amber body, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is very spicy, some clove, cinnamon, sweet, and malt. The flavor is sweet, very spicy, a little syrupy, caramel malt, and some alcohol. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. The flavor just did not entice me enough to want this beer again. It is not bad tasting. The flavors just did not come together that well for my liking. Nonetheless, it is worth trying.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 8, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent brown orange colored body and a fair lacing. The complex aroma was maple syrup brown ale citrus spicy and hoppy. The mildly vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a acidic hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of maple syrup mild citrus mild caramel mildly vinous sweet spices brown malt crisp breads and hops. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

Bottle from Voldby. Pours amber with a good tan head. Spicy pumpkin aroma. Taste is spices, caramel, syrup, pumpkin, cloves. A bit sour. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice warming spicy finish.
