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.

Monalovesbeer (21) - - NOV 16, 2012
Drank from a large bottle served in a wine glass. Dense beige head and clear reddish brown color. Very yeasty aroma with a bit of maple and clove. First sip hits you like a ton of bricks with alcohol and sweet maple flavor and finishes with alcohol and yeast. Palate leaves a strong taste of alcohol metal and sour yeast. Not my favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nsanders (1003) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2016
750 mL. Orange brow with a quickly fading head. Belgian yeast, clove, peanut shells, dried leaves and brown sugar. Lightly sweet with a dry earthy taste. Medium body.

MissAnthropic (35) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2016
Thin foam, murky brown with a surprisingly subtle nose of malt and chocolate. Palate is mild and clean for the color. The maple is extremely understated and the yam comes out stronger. It’s a good solid brown ale with a nice back note of the title flavours but they are not strong and if you’re looking for a maple bomb it’s not this.

bulldogops (2250) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 17, 2016
Rating #2122 - 2015.10.10 - Bottle shared with friends and foes @revolutionyeg 10%. No pumpkins for this brew, it’s a yammajamma. Clear, amber pour with a hint of cloudiness. Aroma is yeast, brown sugar, orange zest. Taste is brown sugar, toffee malts, grains, mild spiciness. Delicious, like a PSL quad.

DuffMan (9542) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle, shared with Robbie. Burnt orange with a low cream coloured head that retains poorly. Burnt sugars (maple?), spices, estery yeast, sweet with a warming finish. Not picking up yams or pumpkin, more like a spicy Abt/Quad.

Bottle. Pours an amber color. Aroma and taste are molasses, pumpkin pie, and some maple syrup.

jandd1983 (3832) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Sampled at the Societe Party 2016. It poured a dark mahogany color with a tan head. The aroma was of spices, malts, pumpkin, wood and caramel. The taste was similar to the aroma with some yams, malts, caramel, spices and syrup. Interesting.

andrewje41 (2872) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Draft 10 oz pour at Malt and Vine. Paid almost as much for this as the bottle is, because I’m an idiot. Bright cloudy orange pour with a thin fizz head. Big time sweet aroma with nape and vanilla. Sugar sweet, maple, brown sugar, and a cool finish. Interesting.

rodenbach99 (4209) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
Bouteille de 750ml, capsule métallique. Premier nez qui semble contaminé. Le liquide semble mince. La robe est cuivrée avec une mousse crémeuse épaisse et beige. Elle semble vouloir persister. Une bouche qui goûte les épices avec une purée de patate douce, pour amateur.
