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.

Red brown body. Nice sized cream head. Yeast Belgian aroma. Hints of banana and fig. Slight tart taste with a banana and maple finish. Has a lot of Belgian style characteristics. It’s ok.

Swaroga (1544) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2015
Butelka 75cl. OCZY : piwo ma przejrzysty i głęboki czerwony kolor podchodzący delikatnie pod brąz. Piana piwa nie jest wielka i jest średnio trwała. Piana ma kolor jasnego beżu. NOS : na pierwszy niuch uderzają mnie aromaty molasy, syropu klonowego, ciasta i toffi. Do tego mocne aromaty suszonych i kandyzowanych owoców. Nie tylko typowe śliwki, figi i rodzynki ale również mango, ananas i banan. Do tego orzechy o lekko palony karmel. Jest intensywnie i bogato. Po wstrząśnięciu wyczuwam więcej świeżości, słodkości kandyzowanych owoców ale i alkohol, bardziej podkreślone estry i drożdże. USTA : piwo ma spore nasycenie, jest tłuste i średnio gęste. Ogólnie słodkie piwo z wyraźnymi nutami dodatków (molasy i syropu klonowego) i alkoholu. Piwo jest na granicy bycia za słodkim i jedynie pewna ziemistość, lekka paloność i wyraźne nuty przypraw dają rade by to piwo zrównoważyć. Przy końcu piwo lekko kwaśnieje podobnie jak suszone i nawet lekko podwędzane śliwki. Posmak jest ziemisty i słodki z nutka podobna do gałki muszkatowej, cynamonu i goździków. ODCZUCIA : intensywne piwo na zimne wieczory. Nie pije się to piwo w żaden sposób łatwo ale przecież nie to jest w zamierzeniu browaru. Ma moc i pomimo wielu przypraw i dodatków piwo ma pewien balans. Choć po jednej szklance mam dosyć. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 3/10 styl : +1

JHeath99 (1215) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma of spice, pumpkin, sweetness, and a hint of booze. Taste is booze/pumpkin/spice forward.

tmzl (95) - SLOVENIA - DEC 30, 2014

Look: Pours with average sized, thick, light brown head. It has a smooth, slow and equal retention, mostly diminishes. Leaves a thick, fine top layer, some random lacing down the way. Cloudy brown with red hue, low amount of carbonation visible.

Smell: It’s an oddball. Ketchup, light acidity freshness and bits of soy sauce. Also medium sweetness with caramel and maple dominating. Spices and potato.

Taste: Well, the smell translates into taste but builds in some more complexity. Starts with candy, licorice and autumn spice mix. Continues to medium/heavy caramel, molasses middle sweetness. Ends with some sweet potato, cinnamon and star anise. The stuffy sweetness with relatively strong spices linger for some time, light acidity helps it make bearable.

Mouthfeel: Full light heavy body, suitable carbonation, alcohol wonderfully incorporated.

Overall: An interesting mash up, worth a try, but ends up a bit too stuffy for my liking.

jdjuice (354) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2014
Pours hazy purple amber with lasting beige head. Aromas are funky, what smells like a sweetness from either yams or molasses. Very Belgian up front, like Chimay Blue with clove spiciness, but yielding into a bit of sourness and distinct yammy sweetness that lingers on the finish. Overall pretty interesting and decent, but a little lacking in depth.

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.

GreatDane1632 (660) - USA - DEC 19, 2014
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.
