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.

Had once on tap and once in bottle. Pours a brownish color with amber hints. Smells of cinnamon, maple, and nutmeg. Pumpkin flavors, with strong notes of cinnamon and maple syrup on the back of the tongue. Medium bodied with a lingering flavor of spices. Overall a great "Pumpkin Style" beer, however it is a little sweet for my palate and I will probably not have it again.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Fra flaske på Alehouse, Riga 8 Okt 13 i selskap med hyggelige kollegaer fra jobben. Dyp amber. Lavt lagskum. Litt uklar. Søt fruktaroma. Smaken er også søt frukt. Litt kjedelig. Hadde forventet mer.

gEUS (890) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours hazy deep amber with no head. Aroma of rose water, plums, cinnamon and glühwein herbs and spices. Medium palate with warm sweetness and bits of alcohol glowth. Taste is oaky with warm spices (cinnamon, cloves, karadmom). Tasty winter warmer but lacks some kick in the (Christmas) balls.

Thebullshornbar (58) - Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2014
A pretty big beer with a some booziness offset by a decent amount of residual sugars, spices, and esters. Among those qualities, the vegetal component really stands out in the finish and not in a good way. This is only accented by the Belgium yeast which usually adds a nice tartness but only accents the off-putting vegetal notes. Overall, there is a lot going on here some good, some bad, but really disjointed.

Bottle. Murky brown liquid with small to medium light brown head. Aroma of raw sugar, spices, caramel, toffee, bread, marmalade and bread. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, raw sugar, syrup and spices. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice but a bit too spiced.

Znakomite jesienne piwo, pite akurat w chlodny wieczor zimy. Srednia piana ale sliczny czerwonawo pomaranczowy kolor, na koniec metne. Slodkosc i slodycz byla tu gora ale to bardzo przyjemne doznania w tym przypadku. Nie kazde amerykanskie piwo musi pachniec i smakowac cytrusowym aromatycznym chmielem. Tu go bylo niewiele, a praktycznie niewyczuwalny, i dobrze bo dominowal syrop klonowy, dzem brzoskwiniowy, nieco powidel sliwkowych. A wszystko to rozgrzewalo w zimny wieczor za sprawa sporej dawki alkoholu. Bardzo fajne wrazenia. Finisz slodki dlugi i alkoholowy i bardzo rozgrzewajacy. Nieco dyni tez bylo w smaku, a jakze. Gorazo polecam nie tylko na chlodne wieczory jesienne, ale zwlaszcza zimowe.
