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.

944play (427) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Draft at Taps, Petaluma. Clear mahogany with lasting yellow head. Caramel and ripe banana nose. Sweet and tart plus mild phenol. Mouthfeel is rather stingy.

Bottle. Pours a deep orange with thin white head. Very musky aroma with a touch of syrup. Very intricate flavors in this one, sweet maple syrup to start it off, follows with the bitter yams with spice, and finshes sweet but dry. Slightly sticky and boozy. Very nice, an interesting offering for sure. I would take this over any pumpkin beer that I’ve ever had.

I’m not going to go in depth too far about all the flavors this beer had. First of all, I couldn’t taste all the stuff the beer claimed to have. It definitely does have a bit of a Maple Syrup flavor but don’t confuse it for having a Syruppy mouthfeel - it doesn’t. It actually had a surprisingly light mouthfeel. Also had a surprisingly smooth finish, but as the description says, it is very lightly hopped - however it also doesn’t have any harsh malt flavors either, which is surprising given its high alcohol content. Very well crafted.

Bottle. Pours brown with white head. Nose of maple syrup, molasses, yam and sweet potato. Taste of maple syrup, yam, sweet potato, molasses and similar flavors. Lots of yams and sweet potato. Odd beer.

3.5
Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Pours a murky maple color with notes of brown sugar and yams. Taste of alcohol and sweetness throughout. A maple syrup taste with a slight aftertaste of pine cones. A high ABV beer that does not skimp on taste

750mL pours copper and clear with a small head. aroma is spiced with a touch of alcohol. mouthful has nice spice with some of that yam in the body and a hint of maple. little hotness comes around as well. Nice fall sipper.

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...

on draft at Capones. Pours a caramel deep amber with a small off white head. Aroma of light honey, vegetables and maple. Taste is much the same as the aroma with hints of cinnamon.

4.1
dogfish120love (1364) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Pours a dark rusty mixture of orange, red and brown.. The head is rocky with a beige tinge. The aroma is pumpkin spices, "candied yam" i guess, and booze. Slight metallic aroma, but some really nice spicy notes help to cover it up. This beer encompasses all that is autumn in its aroma. Mollasses are undoubtedly present in the flavor...in fact it engulfs the rest of the flavors. Slight metallic taste(probably from the maple syrup)

3.6
arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Pours clear orange with thin white head, aroma has notes of clove, cinnamon, caramel, and a touch of yam. Taste is the spices, some sweet cream, yams, sweet caramel and a sweet yam finish. Nice brew.
