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.

Cloudy brown pour with a light beige head. The aroma is earthy with toffee and caramel malts dominating, and a sweet candied fruit. Taste is pretty sweet, with prune and raisin notes, Belgian Dubbel type yeast flavors and a underlying richness throughout. Heavy booze content, has some alcohol burn. Syrup like in texture, but not flavor. Yams are lost to me except for the underlying earthy notes, and the same goes for the maple, it was completely undetectable to me.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2016 Hazy red brown colored body, with an ample lasting ring of head. Active legs. Strong aromas of banana, clove, brown sugar, maple, and yes, sweet potato. Sweet, but not to the point of cloying. A decent representation of the belgian style. Drier finish. As I drink more of this it becomes harder to stomach. Weird how this drinks better cold, generally I find the opposite to be true. I think 12 oz bottles might be a better option for this beer. I had to pour the last few ounces of it out.

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.

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.

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.
