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.

Strong yeasty spicy aroma, caramel, bread, nutmeg, cinnamon Pours an amber brown color with frothy off white head that bubbles down and becomes a small head Sweet bready caramel flavor with plenty of yeasty spice, nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. Well balanced but a bit on the sweet side. Medium full bodied, alcohol warmth, high bubble frothy carbonation feel, lingering sweet bready finish. Enjoyable beer. Interesting flavors, good sipper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Gambrinus. Tons of yam on the nose, with clove, cinnamon, star anise and cardamom dominating. Light-bodied, with tons of spice on the palate. Yams work pretty well, but just too boozy. 4 oz pour was more than enough.

Draft at Country Boy. Pretty beer, dark red amber slightly murky. Full bodied and creamy. Malty taste dominated by yam and maple sweetness, with sweet malt finish. Nothing like a pumpkin beer, very interesting.

Sweet and sappy. Pumpkin and yams scents and flavors. A ham glaze type brew. 9/10.

JackMandarin (280) - 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 (223) - 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 (56) - 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. Its a good solid brown ale with a nice back note of the title flavours but they are not strong and if youre looking for a maple bomb its not this.
