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.

I’m kind of in the middle of the road on this beer. I was intrigued by the name...but couldn’t find much to really rejoice about. Slight burnt sugar taste, almond caramel notes, but this is missing something crucial. Perhaps could use a bit more of a malt kick to fully interest me. I would try this again though...

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.

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.

(bottle) clear very bright reddish amber colour with a small beige head; aroma of stewed fruit, candy, spice; smooth palate; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish; very nice

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.

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.

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.

mariuspoenari (1461) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Sweet and complex aroma and taste, but very much up my alley. Heavy on the sweet components - caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, maple syrup - with a very smooth mouthfeel. Excellent.

Cloudy brown but settled out after sat. Yeasty nose with sweet agave maple like aroma. Taste pretty damn good brown sugar some sherry some sweetness some yeast and lots of wonderful spice notes. Really good.

Bomber thanks to one of the three cousins in the bario. Leafy nose. Light booze upfront and syrupy. Slight spice and milk chocolate.
