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.

Orange brown pour with lots of creamy beige head and a good amount of lacing .... aroma of cinnamon spices and some earthy sweet potatos, slight fruity yeast and molasses ..... taste of molasses, spices (cinnamon mostly) earthy notes and warming alcohol that went into the finish ... a thick and sticky beer definitely a big beer .... could have used more spices

This is one solid beer, but should be served after dinner as a dessert. The aromas of spice,maple, molasses, and yams were pretty big and robust. The carbonation was on point, as was the head retention. It was a pretty filling beer, so have a friend to share it with.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 Bottle split with Tony and pat. Pours a deep hazy amber red. Nice light brown lacing that lasts throughout. Aroma is sweet potato fries, sweet maple, and lots of spice. Mouthfeel is silky smooth and velvety with notes of sweet spice, maple, and cinnamon molasses.

Had from capones with james and pat and Katie. Pour is a deep brown with a slightly off white lasting head that laces a little. Aroma is full of Maple and Yams. Flavor is full of spices, yams, and syrup after taste. Pretty delicious brew that grows on me with every sip.

Murky chestnut brown pour with some semblance of an eggshell colored head. Aroma of caramel, cinnamon, clove, and, what I guess is yams. Flavor is caramel, molasses, some spice, and a lot of alcohol. Lots of maple syrup. I get a starchy note which I assume is the yam. Various sweet dried fruits. Lots of brown sugar. Medium to full bodied, lots of carbonation. I wouldnt but this again, but I didnt drain pour it either. So I guess Im on the fence with this one. And Im learning towards meh.

Bottle pours a red-brown color with nice head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of dark dried fruits, caramel. Flavor is sweet and full of spices (nutmeg, allspice,cinnamon), yams, raisins, maple syrup, brown sugar. Mild carbonation, really enjoyed this and wonder how it would age. Rebuy for sure.

The aroma is a bit sour and funky with a touch of maple syrup, malt, and hops. The appearance is dark red with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall an OK beer but I am not crazy about it, worst of all it does not have much maple.

Bottled. Cloudy, dark copper pour, off-white to tan head. Spicy, sweet potatoe pie and maple syrup nose. Falvor is yams, maple syrup, and a Belgiany yeast. Slightly sour, tart finish.
