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.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2012 Light brown body with thin frothy head. Sweet candy aroma, red fruit, and lots of spices, nutmeg, and allspice. Flavor is very sweet but light bodied. Maple is unnoticeable until it warms and then only slightly toward the finish. The yams come through a lot like pumpkin giving some fullness to an otherwise thin body. Slightly sticky finish. Itís kind of a mess with lots of sweetness but no real focus.

JackMandarin (229) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2016
Bottles by the glass from Salthorse, Edin. Rated from memory.....Pours nearly clear. Lovely deep reddish amber. Dense but short off-white head. Lots of Belgian yeast character in the aroma. A hint of sourdough funk. Banana bread. Baking spices....nutmeg, clove, cinnamon....No real sign of the abv on the nose. Smooth and richly sweet on first taste. Balanced, not sickly sweet. Bready malts. Maple syrup slick mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Gentle bitterness. Again, the alcohol is seriously well hidden. Great Autumnal beer. Goes down easy!

bottle to tulip. a thick maple aroma and almost porter opaqueness. Smooth with the complex beauty of flavors expected from the Bruery.

teamsale (193) - Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2016
On tap. Pours an opaque brownish autumn with a thin beige head and light lacing. Aroma is yeast dominant with some maple. Flavor is cola, maple, alcohol, yeast. Leaves more of a citrus aftertaste. Not bad, certainly different.

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 (43) - 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. Itís a good solid brown ale with a nice back note of the title flavours but they are not strong and if youíre looking for a maple bomb itís not this.

Rating #2122 - 2015.10.10 - Bottle shared with friends and foes @revolutionyeg 10%. No pumpkins for this brew, itís 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 (9611) - 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.
