Mahogany brown in color with minimal to no head... Aroma of sticky caramel, toffee, candied yams, hint of booze and Brett... Flavor is dried fruits, apple cider, caramel, sticky toffee, hint of funk and booze on finish... Pretty flat overall, had prepared for a gusher and instead had zero carbonation...

750ml bottle. Poured a dark amber color with no head. Fruity, brett with a lighter funkiness, yams, caramel, and some spices. Flat and thin body and somewhat watery. ryanfolty (2540) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2015
June 19, 2015 - bottle via trade. Brown pour with limited head. Aroma was yams, sweet maple and light brett. Taste was a nice mix of the flavors on aroma. BVery (10327) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Bomber shared by Ryan - thanks! Sweet potato / yam aroma and taste. Pretty rich and delicious. Reddish golden color. alexsdad06 (10279) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2015
750 ml bottle sampled in 2011 from notes. Pours a deep amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malts, the typical spices found in most pumpkin beers (nutmeg, cinnamon), and sweet potato casserole. The flavor is strong caramel malts, maple syrup, with a hefty dose of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. There is a high level of sweetness, but I expected it and it wasn’t cloying. The Brett was not a big influence early, lightly funky, maybe more dry than the original, still sweet, yams and spices. Mouthfeel was medium-full and relatively smooth.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy brown with no head. The aroma is spice, maple, and dark fruits. Medium mouth with sweet potato, brown sugar, caramel and maple, odd but good. tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Large sample pour of murky dark amber. Nose is funk with some seasonal fall spices. Flavor holds to the yams and cinnamon but finishes with moderate tartness and malt. Light zest notes of Belgian yeast but fairly subdued in the back. Almost some apple notes in the finish also. Drinkable, somewhat enjoyable also.

Oof. I tried this beer fresh and couldn’t pick up much Brett flavor at all, so I decided to set a couple bottles down to let the funk develop. All the bacteria seem to have done, however, is autolyzed. There’s a ton of oxidized dark honey flavor mixed with teriyaki and Worcester. The sweet base flavors are still apparent -- maple, brown sugar, apple cider. Mild Belgian yeast character, nice and fruity. The base, as always, is nice, but buried under all the oxidized and autolyzed flavors. At this point, this beer would be good as a steak marinade, but not much else. slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
"I was expecting a ton of bretty goodness in this one and was a little let down in that regard. a little of the original beer comes thorugh, mainly the yams, but it’s not exactly exploding with barnyard goodness. a bit muddled, but still tasty...a little spice, yams, dry from the brett with a hint of sourness. good, but not worth the extra $." peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. Hazy rust colored brown pour with a scattering of tan bubbles. Pie crust, spice, yam, and dry brett in the aroma. Taste is soggy, flavorless potatoes with mild, generic spice and watery brett. Disjointed mouthfeel. Man, this smelled really good and tasted so bad!
